IBM Lotus Domino 6 Designer
Developing Dynamic Web Applications


This course extends participants' Domino application development skills by teaching them how to use the Domino tools to design and develop dynamic Web applications. Participants learn how to efficiently use Domino fields and page lay out design elements in the Web pages. They see how to apply programming languages, such as JavaScript and Java. Participants do not need to know how to program in these languages to acquire an understanding of how and where to apply the programming capabilities to the best advantage. The also shows participants how to use XML and XSL to integrate data from enterprise solutions.
Finally, this course covers security topics specific to the Domino web environment.
