Server Agents for Lotus Domino Designer R5
Lotus Training Overview

During this course you will create agents that run in memory of the Domino Server. These agents run on a scheduled or event-driven basis, and are written using Simple Actions, Formulas, or LotusScript.

Emphasis is placed on understanding the security requirements and server resources required to safely and effectively run agents.

You will also learn about the Agent Manager, including its configuration, operation, and troubleshooting.

This course also covers the LotusScript NotesLog object class, with which you will log agent actions and errors to keep track of their operation.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

This course will:

  • define the purpose of scheduled and event-driven agents and provide examples of their effective use
  • describe the four components of every agent design
  • explain how to use the Agent List to create and modify agents
  • explain the relationship between full text search indexes and agent scheduling
  • show how to programmatically execute agents
  • provide experience designing agents written using Simple Actions, Formulas, and LotusScript
  • describe the role of the Agent Manager and Router in executing scheduled and event-driven agents
  • provide scheduling and programming techniques to increase agent potency and reduce overhead
  • explore the many security requirements for successful agent operation
  • provide agent troubleshooting and logging techniques.
Lotus Training Audience

This course is designed for Domino Programmers, but may also be of interest to Domino Administrators who want to know about the Agent Manager server task. The course assumes that you have:

  • thorough knowledge of the Domino Designer development environment, including form and view design, as well as how to use properties boxes, and how to set the ACL
  • mastered the topics covered in Basic Applications for Domino Designer, Programming Languages for Domino Designer: Function Language, and Programming Languages for Domino Designer: LotusScript.
Though not required, experience in any computer programming or application scripting language (including spreadsheet formulas) is helpful in understanding how to maximize the use of the @Formula language.

Lotus Training Course duration

1 day

Lotus Training Course design

This lecture-lab course involves significant hands-on agent development experience using Simple Actions, @Formulas, and LotusScript. It only peripherally explores the principles of programming and does not attempt to cover every option of every function.

The course takes a task-oriented approach, during which you will increase your understanding of how agents operate.
