Using stored procedures in Lotus Notes Domino offers a safe, portable and reliable way to build application-to-application interfaces.

As an example of what you can do with stored procedures in Lotus Notes Domino, the Java code below executes a stored procedure that returns a Job Number value. The Job Number value is then used in an executed SQL statement.

import lotus.domino.*;
import java.sql.*;          // JDBC classes
import java.util.*;
import java.sql.CallableStatement;
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.util.Date;
