Welcome to blog series part 9 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.. In this entry I'm going to talk about how DOCOVA handles response or child documents. First let me take a second to praise response documents in IBM Notes. You know, they seem like such a simple thing but I think it's surprising how many systems don't include this type of construct out of the box. With their ability to inherit [...]

Welcome to blog series part 8 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I'm going to go over profile documents. In Notes apps, profile docs were convenient for, and typically used for, holding application settings type information. The information on profile docs was easily gotten with @formula commands like @GetProfileField. The question is: Does DOCOVA support profile documents? Yes. If a Notes application used profile documents then they will be [...]
Welcome to blog series part 7 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I'm going to discuss XPages. So, the simple question is: Does DOCOVA migrate and support XPages? Annnnd, the answer is: No. For DOCOVA’s development we pretty much stayed away from XPages for two reasons. First, although we might have been able to leverage it on the Domino side, it wasn’t a good fit for the SQL edition [...]
Welcome to blog series part 6 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I'm going to talk about three things. Security, security and security. We thought the security in Notes/Domino was pretty good. It was clear, easy to manage and provided for a lot of variable implementation. DOCOVA’s enhanced security capabilities were made so that it is flexible enough to support the Notes/Domino approach to security. DOCOVA application access control [...]
Welcome to blog series part 5 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I'm going to talk about how file attachments are migrated over to DOCOVA. When it comes to the importing of data from a Notes application to a DOCOVA application, the DOCOVA App Importer initially scans and detects all file attachments in the source nsf and keeps track of what form design elements contain an attachment. As the [...]
Welcome to blog series part 4 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this blog entry I'll talk about richtext and how it gets migrated over. So, first off, there is no such thing as a “richtext” field in a browser as compared to what a richtext field is in a Notes client. If you are running DOCOVA on a Domino platform rather than one of the other SQL database platforms, DOCOVA [...]
Welcome to blog series part 3 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this post I'm going to talk about @formula and @command language. Most Notes apps have the @formula and @command language strewn throughout them. The @formula and @command languages were very useful in that they were an easy way to quickly accomplish simple tasks as well as tackle what were sometimes quite complex operations without being a master coder. In order [...]
Welcome to blog series part 2 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I'm going to go over LotusScript. In part 3 of this series I'll talk about @formula and @command language. When we began to embark on the journey of providing a killer platform and migration strategy to bring Notes applications to DOCOVA, we knew that the conversion of LotusScript was going to be an important part of it. [...]
Welcome to the first installment of the Migrate Notes to DOCOVA blog series. This is a multi-part series touching on what gets migrated when moving Notes applications to the DOCOVA collaboration platform. It doesn't have to be Sharepoint. I will publish entries on a regular basis, every couple of days or so, I'm shooting for Tuesdays and Thursdays right now. You can fast-track and get all the whitepapers on our migration methodology and everything [...]
Available in the first half of November, we are releasing DOCOVA 4.5.1 on the heels of DOCOVA 4.5. What’s new in 4.5.1 is that we’ve added some elements specifically for IBM Quickr® migrations. DOCOVA customers will be able to continue to create and share information internally and externally much in the same way that they were able to with Quickr. For more information on migrating Quickr to DOCOVA, you can read Chris’ blog entry [...]
