Question 2) Notes Domino 6 Developing Applications
Objective : Application Architecture
SubObjective : Designing Web Applications That Read Non-Domino Data
Single Answer Multiple Choice
Which of the following connectivity solutions, for accessing non-Domino data, cannot be configured in Domino Designer?
- Domino Relational Database Manager (DRDM)
- Data Connection Resource (DCR)
- Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
- LotusScript Data Object (LS:DO)
A. Domino Relational Database Manager (DRDM)
Domino supports several connectivity solutions for accessing non-Domino data. The Domino Designer client can be used to design databases to utilize some of these connectivity solutions. In most cases, configuration is also required on the Domino server to fully enable connectivity to the non-Domino data.
A Data Connection Resource (DCR) can be created to map fields in a Domino database to fields in an external relational database. The use of a DCR requires that a data resource first be configured on the server that the Domino database resides on.
The LotusScript Data Object (LS:DO) is a LotusScript extension library of classes that enables a developer to work with the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) open standard application programming interface (API).
Domino provides a driver for Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), enabling access to relational data via standard JDBC classes in Java agents. Domino also provides a JDBC to ODBC bridge.
