16.7. Summary

In this chapter we introduced XML. We described how we transform XML into different formats that are more meaningful to us. Next, we explained how Domino supports the XML technology. We defined what DXL is and introduced the new LotusScript classes that are provided with Domino Designer 6. Domino can handle XML data both basically (directly in forms, pages, and views) as well as programmatically, using LotusScript or Java. It is possible to export Domino data into a XML format. We can also transform existing XML data in Domino into different formats using stylesheets. Finally we saw how to import a DXL file into a Domino database as a new design element.
