Create A Replica Stub With LotusScript

In Lotus Script it's possible to create a new replica from a Lotus Notes
Database using the Method CreateReplica from the NotesDatabase Class. This
method creates the replica and replicates instantly. See the code on how to
create a replica stub only using Notes API in Lotus Script. The Code has been
developed with Notes 4.x that's why we consider OS/2 as plattform. In R5 you
may use it on a server running OS/2
