From the Back Cover


Lotus Notes and Domino R6 Development Unleashed provides expert insight and authoritative advice on all of the core features of Lotus Notes and Domino development. The authors go beyond what is typically found in the simple tutorial style of book and deliver a thorough treatment of each design element, including coverage of the new features found in the R6 Designer. The additions to the Domino Designer in this release are extensive and powerful. R6 has been three years in the making, and the results have paid off in a huge improvement in the development environment. Improvements and additions have been made in reusability, Agent design and management, ease and flexibility of programming, development of the presentation layer, connection to external databases, and more. All of the development languages available for use in the Domino Designer are covered in the same thorough manner.

Debbie Lynd is the content director for The View's conferences and seminars. She has been working with Lotus Notes and Domino since 1992; she is a PCLP in application development and system administration, as well as a CLI. Debbie lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia with her husband, Harry; a very spoiled dog named Gretchen; and a pond full of fish, frogs, and an occasional snake. When not working, Debbie is sleeping or eating, although she has been known to slip away on occasion for a visit with her children, and she has just recently learned that taking Sunday expeditions is a good thing.



Deborah "Deb" Penny has more than 12 years of design and development experience in the computer industry. Studying industrial psychology and computer science at Framingham State University in the early 1980s, she was able to obtain a newly defined and unique perspective on people and computers working together at the onset of the technology revolution. This insight helped her to develop an eye for user interfaces and professional graphic design. During the early 1990s, Deborah focused on database design using Lotus Notes/Domino and became a certified Lotus Notes Developer and Administrator. She has actually worked with Domino since an early beta release within several different networking environments. As Internet technologies matured, she was able to apply UI design to database and Web applications. She was able to further self-study the psychology of intuitive design, user interface design, human factors, and the science and application of color. She has been touted as an industry UI and Domino Design expert.



Over the last 12 years, Deb has been immersed in commercial Web software development and creative content marketing in the stage-gate and product portfolio management arenas for a young start-up company, Value Innovations (http://www.valueinnovations.com). There, she was able to apply her extensive development background using HTML, DHTML, CSS, JavaScript, Java, and Macromedia product integration such as Flash and Shockwave, along with applied UI and human factoring.



She currently resides in Winchester, Massachusetts, with her fianceas, two teenage daughters, and four cats. Deb enjoys restoring her 102-year-old Victorian home, researching her family's genealogy, and gardening in her spare time. Deb can be reached via email at [email protected]

Reader review(s):

Doesn't cover the new Functions and Commands, May 16, 2003
I was looking for an update book that would cover the new @Functions and @Commands in the programming language. I saw them listed in the first chapter, browsed through the other chapters and saw the real-world code examples and purchased the book. I was very disappointed to see only R5 code in the bulk of the book, even when new @functions in R6 could have been used to simplify. This is just a rushed rehash of the R5 text with new screenshots of R6 Designer client. I should have saved my money and gone with the IBM Redbook and the Lotus help documentation.

Beginners only..., April 15, 2003
This book follows the same formula as predecessors in the most part except for the "real world code" sections. It is very similar to the equivalent ibm red book. Domino is a well seated technology and so you will probably skip right past the first 300 pages about whats a form, a view, a page and a frameset. You could work all this out yourself if you have a designer client infront of you. It takes you through all the elements that any other domino book written about R5 does as well. Then towards the end you get some javascript and HTML basics. But nothing on CSS, (which for anyone who has built a web page after 1999 is now the formatting technique for any dynamic site). If you really have no idea what you are doing and dont have any other supporting literature then this book would help.

But for those of us who are well versed in domino you can find all this on the internet anyway through LDD (aka Notes.net) and download the PDF's, you could even get a (...) R5 book and work out the rest. Dont forget there is an extensive online help system.

Almost a copy of the Domino Designer 6 Redbook, March 17, 2003
Though I didn't buy this book I read the example pages here at Amazon.com and I compared it with the Domino Designer 6 Handbook from the Redbook series and all I must say it is almost a copy of it. The only difference are the "RealWord"-Code Examples, but beyond that it is one of the many books telling you who to create a form, who to use fields etc. I would be interested in anybody's review who has this book to know if it is for advanced developers or if it is - as I think - for beginners. The authors have written good books I own and publish in many reference magazines but it is no garantee that every book has the same level. l could recommend this book to beginners who want to see some code examples.

This is a great book., March 12, 2003
Debbie Lynd and Steven Kern know their stuff. This book is well written and detailed just enough. They key into exactly what is needed to move to and explore Lotus Notes R6. I highly recommend it and only wish I would have bought an autographed copy.

All that you want, September 21, 2003
If you are serious about Domino, its a good guide, even if you know R5 or if you are a rookie. (but it's really heavy..you will hate it if you usually travel whit it.)

Steve and Debbie come through again!, April 10, 2003
The wait for this new release was worth it! The new features of Notes and Domino 6 are presented with precise and detailed information without killing the reader with a lot of technical jargon. The sections focused on DECS and DCRs were most helpful! While other publications have only glossed over this highly valuable feature set, Debbie and Steve take the necessary time to walk the reader through the process of programming and using these new features. Thank you! Out of all the books I have for Domino 6 Development, I continue to find that I turn to this one for all the answers.
