I am a university student who is just beginning to learn Lotus Notes. I'm using Lotus Notes R5 to design a database for a small employment agency. To pass the class, I need to do a fair bit of programming in this database -- Java or LotusScript, for instance. Please give me some tips on what to include in the database, and some examples of programming/codes I could use in it. Thank you.
First things first! Choose the problem you want to tackle, and what you need to do will naturally follow that choice.
Notes and Domino are best suited to tasks that include a lot of text. You might consider creating a resume database that allows the employment agency's external users (job candidates and prospective employers) to enter information using a browser. Then, the agency can edit and update the information using the Notes client.
