As many of us have learned, Domino development (e.g., adding web browser interfaces to Notes/Domino application DBs) is quite tricky and very different from basic Notes client development! The use of $$Return fields, $$ViewTemplate forms, using AJAX code to do field-level value lookups, using css files, duplicating "QuerySave" event logic in "WebQuerySave" agents, manually determining web URLs for use in links, and all the "inline HTML" that is typically needed just to "get the job done" requires nearly a completely different skillset from standard Notes client development! However, I can't seem to find any good books to cover all these issues. Can anyone PLEASE provide some good recommendations?!?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have read a few books that discuss Web development, but find that just knowing good web development practices are what is important. If you are familiar with Javascript, AJAX, HTML, DHTML, CSS, and other web technologies they can all be leveraged in Web applications on Domino. There is a technical article on how they developed the iNotes client, plus the best practices Redbook (<a href=”http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/tips0676.html?Open”>found here</a>), plus a Wiki developed on the Redbook (<a href=”http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/ddwiki.nsf/archive?openview&title=Redbooks%20Wiki%3A%20Best%20Practices%20for%20Domino%208.0%20Web%20Application%20Development&type=cat&cat=Redbooks%20Wiki%3A%20Best%20Practices%20for%20Domino%208.0%20Web%20Application%20Development&sort=I”>Wiki here</a>) – Specifically chapter 4

    Er, and did I forget to mention that I'd prefer books discussing Domiono R6.5 or R7 (not R5) and/or something written in the 21st century? :-)

    I can't believe that I submitted this question nearly eight months ago and nobody has provided any recommendations. Granted, I guess I should at least feel better that I'm not the only one who can't find any decent reference material for this. But with so many companies "standardizing" on Microsoft technologies (i.e., Exchange/Outlook for e-mail) - and only being willing to maintain support for all of our existing Notes/Domino applications if those apps can be converted to run in a web browser - I would think there are many of us needing such help, right?

    I realize that some of the documentation I mention is older, but still relevant. But the WIKI, it is up to date. I will see if I can find anything else though. Check www.interfacematters.com by Chris Blatnick, he does alot on creating useful interface design - both web and client server. He might have some links there as well that are helpful. Mike Kinder
