What are the options for editing file attachments IN PLACE via the Web in a WAN environment? Using standard Domino & HTML, it's an 8-step process (open doc, detach file locally, edit file, delete original attachment, re-open doc, attach modified file, save doc, delete local copy of file). DFNS is cool within a LAN/firewalled environment, but doesn't it have too many security holes for WAN? Managing files is so important to so many applications, why can I not find solutions to this problem?
I'm sorry but DFNS is not an acronym that is known to me.
While staying with standard Domino & HTML, there are no other options than the one you describe. If you look at Domino.Doc (lotus.com/dominodoc) and the ODMA client that is used there, you might find something like what you're looking for. The ODMA client gives you edit in place ? I don't know if temporary files are left on the local disk though. Domino.Doc is a complete package, and if what you are looking for is a technology to plug in to your own site, you will need to look at custom programming, ActiveX controls and that kind of thing.
