Here's a non-exhaustive list of vendors that offer tools for Domino to J2EE migration (no NSF store required, generally an RDBMS) or integration (NSF remains the data store).
Domino to J2EE migration tools:
- FlowBuilder from Trilog Group (also provides data integration)
- Notes Analyzer and QuickBuilder from ToJava
Domino/J2EE integration tools:
- xd-one from IMG
- Lotus Collaboration Extension from Bowstreet
- And of course, Lotus Toolkit for WebSphere (Domino JSP taglib) and Domino Portlet Builder for WebSphere Portal from IBM
There are other tools that allow you to migrate/transform NSF data to another store/format. I only listed specialized tools where you have at least some preservation of Domino logic and UI. I could very well have missed some recent tools, so please feel free to bring them to everybody's attention.
