My development expertise in Notes and Domino is limited. Could you please advise how the map app might be implemented in R5?
We definitely want the map to appear in the Lotus Notes form, rather than a browser. The objective is to have the user navigate (by search for name/pan/zoom, etc.) to a location where he will place a point with the cursor. That point will be communicated by XML back to the Web map server, which will generate a reply indicating town name, etc. It is hoped then to use these values to populate fields in the form.
I'm not familiar with the specific map generation software you're referring to, but it doesn't sound like there's anything there that you couldn't do in the Notes client, except that Notes doesn't do DHTML. It sounds like you have a servlet running on your server, communicating with the map server via XML-formatted messages. That part is not particularly important -- the key question is how does the map server notify the Notes client about the availability of new content, and what form does the new content take? It sounds like it would be HTML that includes references to image files.
