About this Presentation
  • This is a fly-by of new features
  • Focus is on whats Important about 7
  • What IBM says is Important
  • What I think is import
  • Created in August based on Milestone 2
  • Updates are likely, and will be posted
  • BASED ON BETA Things WILL change
  • Focus on Admin, Designer, Client
  • I try to put the meat on the slides

The Obligatory Commercial
  • Most of the speakers at this conference are
    available to help you!
  • Thats the real reason we do this
  • Real experts guarantee results
  • Catch up with me during the
  • conference if you want expert help
  • Now, on with the show...

If this was TIVO I could fast forward
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
  • 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
  • release

New Server Administrative Features
  • Lotus Notes and Domino 7 are huge for back end

The Lotus Domino 7 Server
  • DB2 Integration
  • Well thought through -- it provides the basis for
    more relational, and more traditional
  • Performance Enhancements
  • Reports of 50 increase in performance on
    NotesBench using R6Mail and R6iNotes
  • Management Enhancements
  • ND7 really fleshes out SMTP controls policy

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
  • 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

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

Creating a DB2 Access View
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 _at_Prompt() popup to determine view
  • Query can Join DB2 data
  • Join two Domino DB2 Access Views to see data from
    more than one Domino database in a single view

Defining a Query View
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
  • Separate installation worth trying

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

Resolution Center Makes Recommendations
New Mail Processing Anti-spam features
Private List is going to do well In this army
  • DNS White Lists
  • Provide exceptions to black list use
  • Private Black Lists
  • Allow easy to manage customization
  • Private White Lists
  • Allow easy to manage override
  • Mail Rules use info from White/Black list checks
  • New Mail Rule to Stop Processing further rules
  • Standard Disclaimers

Major Release
Combine General DNS Based Lists with Manual
Private lists
DNS based white lists home grown or internal DNS
DNS based Black lists like spamcom
Private Manual list of additional hosts to block
Private Manual list of hosts to allow though
Combine mail rules to utilize the results of the
white lists and black lists
Enhancements to Smart Update
  • Kits are detached in the background
  • Shared upgrade kits failover
  • Smart Update requests are cluster aware
  • Administrator can limit concurrent downloads from
    a single server
  • Notification by mail of status by machine or user

LEI Improvements
  • LEI now supports failover
  • processing will switch to cluster peers
  • LEI Administrator is IM aware
  • Better testing for connections from forms
  • Improved scheduling for activities
  • Virtual Documents support backend changes
  • Behavior controls can be based on dependant
    process outcome

Other New Administrative Features
  • Mozilla is supported for WebAdmin!
  • This means Firefox as well!

Editing the servers NOTES.INI from a workstation
in Firefox
More New Administrative Features
  • New Policy Type for Mail CS
  • Especially useful for disclaimers

Even More New Administrative Features
  • Client side HTTP compression supported
  • Policy Lock Down
  • Force clients to accept and use admin policies
  • IPv6 is now supported
  • Support for 1024-bit RSA and 128-bit RC2 Notes
  • LDAP now supports Aliases UNIDs

Developers get new stuff too!
The Designer Perspective
  • DB2 Integration
  • It REALY means new solutions to old problems
  • The biggest new thing, to IBM
  • Standards march forward
  • Native Web Services
  • Major step forward toward hybrid applications
  • The biggest new developer thing, to Andrew
  • Java support enhanced
  • XML Parser updated
  • A few new design features

The Designer Perspective The REAL News
  • LotusScript is NOT dead
  • Fully supports all the new features
  • Serious investment has been made
  • Web Services element COULD have been Java Only
    Its not. This should END speculation about
    LotusScripts continued usefulness.

DB2 Integration in Designer
  • Two sides of the coin
  • Query Views
  • Data from DB2
  • Displayed in Notes
  • DB2 Access Views (DAVs)
  • Data from Domino
  • Accessed in DB2
  • Obeys Domino Security

Access View
Domino Data
Query View
Traditional RDB applications
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 _at_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 _at_Username to select data

Use SQL right in the selection formula
DB2 Access Views Free the Domino Data
  • Distinct Design element
  • not just a view type
  • Not visible in the client
  • except through Query Views
  • Defines Lotus Notes Information in a Relational
    Data model
  • Enforces Domino Security

Creating a DB2 Access View
Like Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • Or Beer and Pretzels -- They go well together
  • DAVs from two Notes databases can make up a
    single Query View breaking the .NSF barrier!
  • If a valid NOTEID from a DAV is selected, the
    referenced document can be opened from the view

Standards March Forward Java Improvements
  • The JVM is now 1.4.1
  • Remote Java Debugging
  • Use 3rd party debuggers, like Eclipse
  • This is a good thing

Standards are great! Especially when there are
more than one!
Major Release
Even more Standards Web Services Support
  • Provider only, for now
  • New Design Element works like a web agent
  • Creates the WSDL for you
  • Creates skeleton code from existing WSDL

  • NamespaceURI, CreateAttributeNodeNS,
  • GetElementsByTagNameNS, GetAttributeNodeNS,
  • GetElementsByTagNameNS, RemoveAttributeNS,
  • SetAttributeNS

New Formula Language Additions
  • Not many needed Formula language was vastly
    improved in ND6
  • _at_PolicyIsFieldLocked
  • For use in hide-when formulas, determines if a
    field is locked
  • _at_Command(DiscoverFolders)
  • Pops up the dialog box showing which folders
    contain the document

Autosave option in form design
  • Saves a local copy of the current document
    periodically in case of crash
  • Document is NOT updated to the server at this
  • Used to avoid loss of work when documents are
    open in edit mode for long periods of time
  • Designer option to ENABLE the feature for a form,
    user option to make use of it

New Features in View Design
  • Shared Columns
