Lotus aims Java tools at Domino developers

Lotus Development has begun shipping a set of Java components and tools that help Domino Web developers build interactive applications for intranets and extranets.

Lotus Development has begun shipping a set of Java components and tools that help Domino Web developers build interactive applications for intranets and extranets, the company said.

Using eSuite DevPack 2.0, application developers can extend the technology of their Domino Web server by adding Web client interactivity to the enterprise data options provided in Domino R5 server platform, which was released last month.

Lotus eSuite DevPack 2.0 Web components and the Lotus Domino R5 application family, which also includes Domino Application Server, Domino Designer, and Lotus Enterprise Integrator 3.0, make up Lotus's application development platform for creating Web-based applications.

eSuite DevPack 2.0 works with existing application development tools and integrates with popular Java development environments, such as IBM's Visual Age for Java and NetObjects Fusion.

"The main concept behind this release is to integrate with Domino R/5," said Tom Kane, senior product manager for eSuite DevPack.

Kane said one of the key enhancements in the product is the ability to build an application that will look the same in a browser as it will on the Notes client. "It's easier to move between browser and client with near parity and look and feel."

eSuite DevPack 2.0 supports the Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.1.7b and is designed for use in applications and browsers with equivalent JVM/JDK/JRE 1.1.5 or greater support.

The Lotus eSuite DevPack single user developer license is available now in 23 languages at an estimated price of $99, the company said. An eSuite DevPack client access license is available at an estimated price of $38 per user or companies can use an eSuite server access license that allows an unlimited number of users per server, available at an estimated retail price of $15,000 per server.
