These questions are based on 835: IBM Lotus Notes Domino 8 Application Development Intermediate Skills
A Self Test Software Practice Test

Objective: Application architecture.
Sub-objective: Prevent replication or save conflicts.

Multiple answer, multiple-choice

You have a form that multiple users will edit at the same time. You want to minimize the replication conflict of this document. Performing which of the following activities will help you minimize replication conflicts? (Choose all that apply.)

A. Set a versioning option in Form properties.
B. Select the Form property Merge Replication Conflicts.
C. Assign the users Editor access in database properties and use Authors field on the form.
D. Assign the users Author access in database properties and use Authors field on the form.
E. Disallow users to lock document for the database.

Answer:
A, B, D

Tutorial:
When you have a form that multiple users edit at the same time, you can use the following options to minimize replication conflicts:

• Set a versioning option in Form properties. You should enable this option to save a new version of the changed documents from the different users on the same document.
• Select the Form property Merge Replication Conflicts. When you select this option, if there are replication conflicts with a document, the replication conflicts are merged with the exception that if there is a field level conflict, then this option does not work.
• Assign the users Author access in database properties and use Authors field on the form.

Author access allows users to read public documents, but not write or create documents, unless you specifically assign this permission. The Read public documents permission for a user with Author access. You typically assign Author access in a situation when you do not want the users to edit other user documents or create their own documents. This helps minimize replication conflicts.

For example, you have a database in which you assign Author access to a user. You also use the Authors field on all the forms that you create. The user will only be able to read the documents that are created by other users but will not be able to edit them. If you would want to avoid or minimize replication conflicts, assign Author or lower access to the users.

The remaining two options are incorrect. You should not assign the users Editor access in database properties and use Authors field on the form. Assigning Editor access will allow the users to create public documents, which can increase replication conflicts.

You should not disallow users to lock documents for the database. If users do not lock their documents, then other users can edit these documents, which can increase replication conflicts.

Objective: Database management.
Sub-objective: Sign databases and design elements.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You must sign every design element that is available in the database. You will use your ID to sign the database. Which option in the Sign Database dialogue box will allow you to achieve this goal?

A. All design documents.
B. All data documents.
C. All documents of type.
D. This specific Notes ID.

Answer:
A

Tutorial:
The All design documents option will allow all design elements in the database to be signed with your current ID. You can use the Sign Database dialogue box to sign all documents, all data documents, a specific type of document or a document with a specific Note ID. You can specify which ID you want to use to sign the database (User ID or Server ID) and what you want to sign within the database.

To sign a database or a specific document, you must open the Domino Administrator and perform the following steps:

1. Click the Files tab (to obtain a list of databases and templates that reside on the server).
2. Select the database.
3. Click to expand Tools (from the right side of the Domino Administrator screen).
4. Click to expand Database.
5. Select the Sign option.

The following dialogue box appears:

You should not select the All data documents option. This option allows you to sign active content that is part of the data documents.

You should not select All documents of type option. This option allows you to choose a design element to sign.

You should not select This specific Note ID option. This option allows you to sign a specific document using its Note ID.

If you select the Defer index creation until first use option in the column properties, what will be the result?

A. Prevent users from sorting the columns.
B. Use more space on the server.
C. Use less space on the server.
D. Prevent users from categorizing the columns.

Answer:
C

Tutorial:
The Defer index creation until first use option allows you to use less space on the server and helps minimize performance issues. This option prevents indexing of specific columns. Users will be able to sort documents in ascending or descending order, but because there is no indexing done for these columns, performance impact will be minimized on the server.

The Defer index creation until first use option does not prevent users from sorting columns. Users can still sort columns in ascending or descending orders.

This option does not use more space on the server. This option allows you to save space.

This option does not prevent users from categorizing the columns. Users will still be able to categorize columns.

Objective: Programming.
Sub-objective: Incorporate full-text indexing.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You want to use the Defer index creation until first use option to ensure indices are created only when a user clicks on a sortable column header. Where should you configure the Defer index creation until first use option to achieve this goal?

A. In the view properties.
B. In the form properties.
C. In the column properties.
D. In the database properties.

Answer:
C

Tutorial:
You should configure the Defer index creation until first use option in the Column Properties box. This option is located on the Sorting tab of the Column Properties. The Defer index creation until first use option works with the sortable columns in a view and allows you to defer the creation of the indices until a user clicks on the sortable column. Without selecting this option, all possible indices are created based on the sortable columns in a view.

When there is an index creation or update, unnecessary server load may be caused. To avoid unnecessary server load, you should select this option so that there is minimum load on the server and an index is created only when a user clicks on a sortable column.

You cannot configure the Defer index creation until first use option in the view, form or database properties. This option is only available in the column properties.

Objective: Security.
Sub-objective: Restrict section access.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You want to hide a section of a form if users who are part of the [Developers] role attempt to print the form. Which option should you select in the Hide tab of the section properties dialogue box?

A. Printed.
B. Open for reading.
C. Previewed for reading.
D. Hide paragraph if formula is true.

Answer:
D

Tutorial:
You should select the Hide paragraph if formula is true option. You want to hide the section based on specific condition: the [Developers] role. When the condition is true, the specified section should be hidden. Any user who is not part of the [Developers] role will be able to see this section.

The Hide paragraph if formula is true option allows you to write a formula and specify hide/when conditions. When you create a formula, you can use @functions and formulas that base conditions on the ACL or the contents of other fields. Alternatively, you can use a controlled-access section to meet the same requirement. A controlled-access section will help you assign permissions only to specific users, groups, or roles.

The Printed option is incorrect. This option will prevent the specified section from being printed by users in any role.

The Opened for reading option is incorrect. This option hides specified sections when a user of any role opens the document for reading.

The Previewed for reading is incorrect. This option hides specified sections when users of any role open documents in Preview mode.
