In Detail
Lotus Notes is an integrated desktop client option for accessing business email, calendars, and applications on a Lotus Domino server. Domino is an application server that can be used as a standalone web server or as the server component of IBM's Lotus Domino product, which provides a powerful collaborative platform for development of customized business applications. It also provides enterprise-grade email, messaging, and scheduling capabilities.

The Lotus Notes powerhouse has been part of the corporate application and messaging architecture for more than 20 years and, over the years, Lotus Notes has come to signify the essence of electronic business communications. With Lotus Notes 8, IBM has once again provided the user with an intuitive, fully integrated platform to enhance each user's experience with business communications. It is no longer just an email tool, but a basis to extend business communications to a new level. This book reviews the current release of the powerful Lotus Notes and Domino architecture platform.

"Written by some of the senior architects and specialists of IBM Software Services for Lotus, this book will provide you with an excellent guide to help you realize the value of your investment in Lotus Notes 8. You will learn how to leverage the full capabilities of Lotus Notes 8 and how to quickly move from your existing technology base to this new, feature-rich platform. The authors explore the enhanced productivity tools available with this release, integrating word processing, presentations, and spreadsheets into a seamless unit with your messaging and collaboration solution."

"Developers are not forgotten, as new features and tools are revealed. You will delve into the world of SOA, as the authors show you how Lotus Notes can be part of an SOA strategy that can accelerate your business integration and generate value. The book finishes with a few words about other Lotus products, such as Lotus Sametime, Lotus Quickr, Lotus Connections, and IBM WebSphere Portal--like IBM Lotus Notes, all built on the open-standards-based Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) technology. These products are all converging to become the next generation of people productivity solutions."
