Avalon brings auditing to ReduceMail Pro

Avalon Business Systems, a New York-based developer of mail reduction utilities for Notes systems, has added auditing capabilities to its ReduceMail Pro product line. The feature allows internal staff to monitor the content of all user Notes mail for compliance, audit and legal purposes.

Now, ReduceMail Pro allows appropriate staff to search the corporate e-mail system for particular words, phrases, subject lines and attachment names and collect the corresponding documents in an audit database. This database can then be reviewed to determine whether there has been any misconduct for which action must be taken.

TLCC teaches JavaScript, intermediate Java

Boca Raton, Fla.-based The Learning Continuum Company Ltd. (TLCC) has rolled out a new course for developers with JavaScript in Notes and Domino 6. Users will learn the fundamental building blocks of the core JavaScript language, its syntax and how it relates to HTML. Next, they will become familiar with the JavaScript Object Model and how JavaScript employs object-oriented programming techniques for working with information on Web pages. The student will use client-side JavaScript objects, methods and events to create interfaces for their Domino applications. Other skills include recreating Notes client features that Domino can not port to Web browsers such as dialog boxes and opening windows.

The JavaScript for Notes Domino 6 course is $499 for a single user license.

Also from TLCC is a new course called Intermediate Java Programming for Notes Domino 6. Students learn how to use the core Java classes to work with strings, numbers, vectors, arrays, and to read and write information from the hard drive and the Internet. Other topics include Web application techniques like performing field validation, preventing multiple submissions of incomplete forms, and passing data using URL variables. Students will build a Web-based order form that can hold multiple items. The course teaches how to use the Domino Objects for Java classes to access and work with Notes items, rich text items, documents, views, view entries and document collections.

Coolidge issues two new Domino audit tools

Coolidge Development in Tewksbury, Mass., has released Server Audit Pro V1.5 and PC Audit Pro V1.5, Notes-native applications aimed at both administrators and application developers managing in Domino environments. Server Audit Pro looks at all the databases and/or templates on a server and creates a document listing all the database information and properties selected in the preferences. Information will be gathered from all servers and stored in one file. This makes it easier to find orphaned mail files, unused/obsolete applications, and extremely large databases.

PC Audit Pro V1.5 performs a hardware audit of PCs and Servers running Lotus Domino 5 or 6. The audit includes the OS the PC or server is running, the service pack level, the version of Notes deployed, and the amount of RAM installed.
