If this was TIVO I could fast forward…

Major Release

perspective what makes this a major release
Perspective: What makes this a “Major Release”

I say so!

  • To IBM: No longer the odd man out
    • Real Integration with IBM DB2
    • Real Integration with Tivoli
    • Enhanced Integration with WAS
    • The beginning of integration with Workplace
  • To Developers: Works & plays better with others
    • Much easier to build Java or VS front end tools
    • Much better for relational data storage
    • Much better Java support
    • Integration with new MS Office features

Major Release

the lotus notes 7 macintosh story two slices
The Lotus Notes 7 Macintosh Story-- Two slices
  • Commitment to Lotus Notes 7 on Macintosh became public in August
  • Initial client to be based on 6.5.4 code stream, certified to work with ND7
    • Stay tuned to fined out

what this means

  • Full featured N7 client

with instant messaging

probably a maintenance


new server administrative features
New Server & Administrative Features

Lotus Notes and Domino 7 are huge for back end management

the lotus domino 7 server
The Lotus Domino 7 Server
  • DB2 Integration
    • Well thought through -- it provides the basis for more relational, and more traditional applications
  • Performance Enhancements
    • Reports of 50% increase in performance on NotesBench using R6Mail and R6iNotes
  • Management Enhancements
    • ND7 really fleshes out SMTP controls & policy enforcement
three kinds of db2 integration
Three kinds of DB2 Integration
  • Store Domino Data within DB2
  • Access Specific Domino Data from DB2
  • Create a Notes view of DB2 Data
  • Overview here, Details in “ALL307”
store domino data in db2
Store Domino Data in DB2
  • For Beta 2, Requires DB2 on the Same Box
  • Classic NSF or DB2NSF on a per database basis
  • Servers Only, clients continue to use NSF files
  • Transparent to users
  • Mostly transparent to administrators
  • Using a DB2NSF does not imply sharing data
  • Not presently being represented as a performance gain
give db2 access to domino data
Give DB2 Access to Domino Data
  • Design Element called a “DB2 Access View”
    • Defines data in Domino as a Table to DB2
      • Not the same as a Notes View
      • No access from Notes Client
        • Exception: SQL Views see it as DB2 Data
  • Domino Security Is Enforced
    • Including Reader Names
use a query view to access db2 data
Use a “Query View” to access DB2 Data
  • Data may be from a Domino DB2 Access View
    • To open the note, you must include the noteid in the SQL select statement
  • Query can be dynamic
    • Example: @Prompt() popup to determine view content
  • Query can “Join” DB2 data
    • Join two Domino DB2 Access Views to see data from more than one Domino database in a single view
domino domain monitoring ddm
Domino Domain Monitoring (DDM)
  • Tivoli Autonomic Monitoring Engine (TAME)
    • Consolidates reporting across servers
    • Works by itself in Domino
    • Integrates with Tivoli Enterprise Console
    • Supports 3rd Party Plug-ins
    • Highly programmable automatic responses
the tivoli analyzer for lotus domino
The Tivoli Analyzer for Lotus Domino
  • Separate installation – worth trying
domino domain monitoring ddm17
Domino Domain Monitoring (DDM)
  • Individual monitoring probes are tailored to Domino issues
    • More than just “Is the server running”
      • Example: Report on Agent Manager sessions that run long or use too much memory
    • Build your own “probes” that check specific aspects of your custom applications
  • Provides likely causes and common solutions to reported problems
new mail processing anti spam features
New Mail Processing & Anti-spam features

Private List is going to do well

In this army

  • DNS White Lists

DNS based Black lists like “spamcom”

Private Manual list of additional hosts to block

Private Manual list of hosts to allow though

Access View


Domino Data

Query View





Traditional RDB applications

query views data from db2 displayed in notes
Query Views – Data from DB2 displayed in Notes
  • No pre-built indexes in the NSF
    • Possible storage and performance boost for databases that change frequently
  • Selection can be changed on the fly per user
    • Use @Prompt narrow selection
    • Complex SQL can fit different kinds of data into the same view design
      • Does this make the Notes client a reporting tool?
    • Finally, use @Username to select data
db2 access views free the domino data
DB2 Access Views – Free the Domino Data
  • Distinct Design element
    • not just a view type
  • Not visible in the client
    • except through Query Views

  • Enforces Domino Security
like chocolate peanut butter
Like Chocolate & Peanut Butter
  • Or Beer and Pretzels -- They go well together

  • If a valid NOTEID from a DAV is selected, the referenced document can be opened from the view
standards march forward java improvements
Standards March Forward – Java Improvements
