Back at the start of this series I mentioned
three application objectives, the first was to build an XPages based phone
book, the second was to give the notes client side of the application the
Java Views look and feel and the third was to create an agent to sync the
phone book with a Lotus Domino directory.
Throughout this series we have been
working on part 1 of the application objectives, to build an XPages phonebook
application, and at long last we have reached our goal, we now have a beautiful
XPages application that follows the oneUI look and feel that you are familiar
with in some other IBM products and allows the end user to look up peoples
details etc. We have also created the ability for a phone book editor to
be able to create locations and people right there from web interface.
If you have followed the entire series
and tried to build the application yourself you would have been introduced
to a wide variety of areas within the XPages, we have looked at many of
the built-in controls and also created out own custom controls. We have
snippits of code, just learning the simple language operators will get
you by and we have also seen how you can easily use your existing lotusscript
I certainly hope that you have enjoyed
the series and that the power of XPages is now a little clearer for you.
I know I have learnt a lot by pulling apart the sample templates and presenting
my findings to you in the series. I think I can safely say that my future
Domino website development will be done in XPages rather then the traditional
