Anyone here involved with Java in Notes/Domino? I'm coming from a Notes background working with LotusScript and starting to learn Java. I'd been interested in hearing from anyone else who has made that transition. For now, I'm focusing on core Java and studying for the JCP exam. After that I'm considering whether or not I should stick with Notes/Domino and learn the Lotus Java classes, or try to find a non-Notes Java job. Any Domino folks around these parts?

Hi David,
I'm a fellow R5 CLP and recently certified SCJP2. There's a big difference between LotusScript and Java. Mainly because LotusScript is based on VBasic and Notes is Component driven vs true OOPs.
The environment I'm in doesn't allow for much Java programming, even under Notes but I'd say you're right to stick to core Java for certification purposes.

Thanks Jane -
It's good to hear from someone else who's coming from a Notes background. Seems like it was very hot and then suddenly cooled off, I don't know if it's bad marketing or what. The position I'm in does'nt really allow me to work too much with Java, so I'm working toward my Java certification on my own time and keeping an eye open for other opportunities. Thanks for your feedback.

Hi David ...
If you check the Lotus and IBM sites you'll find that Notes/Domino is now being marketed as a component of Websphere, which has been a "hot" e-business solution for the last few months.
You'll be happy to know anyone looking for Webshpere people almost always want Java experience and knowing Notes doesn't hurt

I am going to close this topic since it is not concerned with Programmers Certification. You're more than welcome to continue this discussion in another appropriate forum.
