JDBC Access for IBM Lotus Domino - Review: AWESOME

I've installed the project on my server at home first and played with the sample application. It took some time to do the setup, but if you have done it once, it is easy.

Next I downloaded BIRT and imported the sample data into the notes application, installed the driver into my BIRT environment and created my first DataSource. Once connected, I played with the sample reports.

I was impressed by the performance.

Today I configured our development server to use DomSQL and restarted the beast. Same as at home, DomSQL was available. Currently I have configured our CRM System to expose some views to BIRT. I built some basic reports like "company size" and how many companies do we have in a specific area of the world.

SQL makes it very easy to get the data out of an application, and building charts is as easy as pie. There are many things that can be configured to expose only selected views. Giving readable names to cryptic programmatic names is also possible.

Aside from accessing SQL databases from within our application, DomSQL is a powerful to to expose data to tools like an SQL viewer, BIRT, or even Excel ( not tested yet ).

In this field you can enter the actual review.

You can use the rich text editor for rich text formating. You can also enter HTML to embed objects, e.g. to embed a YouTube video or a screenshot of the project. In this case use '[' and ']' to mark the passthrough HTML as such.

Please note that the first time you use the new UI your description is converted from rich text to MIME. You might want to copy and paste the raw plain text from the old UI in the new UI so that you don't loose information.
