Microsoft have just released a book on the MS Download site on how to migrate Lotus Notes applications into the .Net environment. You can have a look at it here
Well somebody should proof read these documents before they are released. The first line of the second paragraph in the introduction states that ‘Notes/Domino R6 is the last planned release of the existing Notes architecture’… Hmm, wonder what I’ve been beta testing then for the past few weeks…
The ‘Overview of Notes And Domino’ is also worth a laugh, they state that Domino can run on many platforms and that 80 percent of domino servers run on Windows. They say it like it’s a bad thing and then fail to mention that Exchange is a Windows only infrastructure.
I’ll let you read the rest, it’s good entertainment…
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I’m going to do a bit of an analysis on it for a number of reasons, and I hope to share my findings.
This is long-time Microsoft propaganda … I’m having to migrate our (perfectly good) Notes/Domino environment to .Net, and one of the main justifications used for this in early 2003 was that after R6, Notes would go J2EE and that would be a massive change — plus a few more highly speculative / slanderous claims — so we had better go with Microsoft instead. I know, I know, but alternative ideas (and facts) were not requested, nor welcome. So … I will read this document, and with great interest too. Like it or not.
Hey… where’s the download. You got me all hyped up and now I can’t find it.
It seems that Microsoft have removed the download from their site. Ed brill is also having a look for it over at http://www.edbrill.com/ebrill/edbrill.nsf/dx/08262004072957AMEBRGNS.htm?opendocument&comments#anc1
