IBM Domino Designer features

Eclipse-based flexibility

Gain greater flexibility by using an open source, Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE). Eclipse is the foundation for a range of development platforms and tools from various vendors. It enables you to consolidate development technologies, including Java, XML and web, within IBM Domino® Designer. You can also enhance IBM Domino programming with features such as code compare and search throughout multiple design elements.

XPages mobile and web development platform

Programmability, language and API features

Produce enterprise business solutions using declarative and procedural languages, an accessible object model and built-in workflow capabilities. Enhancements include: a Server-Side JavaScript debugger (SSJS); Domino Data Services to obtain information on databases, views, folders and documents; and Java classes that incorporate a framework and set of methods for a Java API to expose Domino calendar and scheduling.

Templates, visual development and security tools
