Having completed a detailed evaluation of the recently released OpenNTF Domino API (Domino API), Red Pill Development has made a decision to adopt the Domino API as a central component for its Notes application modernization platform redpill Now. Red Pill Development is also pleased to announce it will provide full support to its customers for the use of the Domino API within their own applications.
Members of Red Pill Development have been active in the development of the Domino API and all members of the team now use and test the Domino API on a daily basis. The built-in support of Graph Database is one of a number of capabilities that are considered essential in building modern Domino solutions. Even after using it for a relatively short period of time, it would be difficult for us to imagine having to go back to the old way of coding java for Domino solutions.
The Domino API addresses a number of key weaknesses in the underlying implementation of java as well as delivering a large number of enhancements. Together these significantly increase programmer productivity, reduce the number of lines of code required, and go a long way to ensure modern best practices for coding are quickly and easily adopted.
Without doubt the Domino API (available from OpenNTF) is the single greatest advancement for Java programming in Notes/Domino since the programming language was first added to the Notes platform in 1996. It is a great example of the Open Source concept and the role OpenNTF is now playing to facilitate the community working together to enhance the Notes Rapid Application Development platform.
