Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This guide lives up to the promise of all of Sams Publishing's Unleashed titles: it is a comprehensive, solutions-oriented guide to the Notes universe that every serious Notes user, Notes application developer, and Notes administrator will want to have at their fingertips. At well over 1,100 pages, Lotus Notes and Domino Server 4.6 Unleashed covers a lot of ground. Some chapters provide just a flavor of a topic. For example, the chapter on using Java in the Domino environment teaches you how to include an existing Java applet within your Notes-generated Web pages and outlines what you need to know to go further with the Java programming language in a Notes context. However, it won't make you a Java programmer overnight.

The book represents the application environment well, including many resourceful discussions of the object-oriented features of the environment, a long section devoted to LotusScript, and information on administration and security topics, which provide a thorough grounding for maintaining and scaling a large, enterprise Notes installation. The enclosed CD-ROM features a copy of the book in Acrobat format and Notes database format for easy online access directly within the Notes environment.

Although there is a comprehensive overview of the Notes client environment in the beginning of the guide, Lotus Notes and Domino Server 4.6 Unleashed will overwhelm the casual, client-only Notes user. Anyone else looking to work more seriously with Notes and Domino, however, will be glad to have this book on their bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
Does not cover enough of most of the basic applications. As an example, the section on mail applications - very briefly touched on POP3/SMTP setup, and does not guide the reader through the creation of a mail database from beginning to end. They assume you already know most of the basic things, although the introduction claims that the book would be a good introduction for a manager with a non-Notes background.
The section on LotusScript would be helpful for a beginner.
This book attempts to cover everything in ONE book, but it might have been more effective to do it in two volumes, or perhaps the publisher should include the earlier edition (4.5) on the CDROM(s).

I have the 4.5 version of this book and the book has gotten worse. A significant portion of the book is now provided on CD-ROM, which I don't like. In my opinion, it would be better if the publishers would either produce two volumes or narrow the topic down to a length suitable for a single book.
The coverage of 4.6 features is very spotty. Some features the book covers fairly well, some features poorly, and some not at all.
I hope this book will be completely revamped and refocused for R5.
I'd recommend against the book for most people. It doesn't work as a reference. It doesn't cover topics in enough depth to be a suitable introduction. It also doesn't follow application development progression enough to be a tutorial. So I'm not sure who the audience should be.
You can't be all things to all people, and unfortunately, this book tries anyway.

I read most of this in a very boring week. Notes/Domino is now such a big product that trying to cover the usage, development and administration aspects is too big a job for one book - even one as thick as this. I think this is tacitly acknowlegded as extra chapters are on CD. In particular the admin elements are very basic.
I was impressed by the LotusScript chapters - I had struggled with OO concepts but this book sorted me out with the basics.
There were a few instances were the examples were still 4.5 rather than the 4.6 equivalent. I tried to mail the publisher on the e-mail address supplied (brave I thought) but the mail bounced (not so brave I thought).
I hope the next version is available in three volumes or a boxed set.
