InterNotes Web Server: Global Access to Notes Databases and Applications

Workshop on Wide-Area Collaboration and Cooperative Computing
Second International WWW Conference: Mosaic and the Web


Over the past five years, Lotus Notes has a grown into the leading commercial software product which allows people to collaborate and coordinate the activities of a business process. While many Notes applications have transformed the way teams and companies conduct business, the most innovative Notes applications have been those that go beyond the boundaries of a single organization to link business partners, customers and suppliers.

At some levels Notes and the World Wide Web share similar models of information and applications. Their common client-server, semi-structured, document-centric approach results in a natural fit between Notes tools and the Web.

The InterNotes Web Server is a product under development at Lotus which brings the information structuring, management, and application development facilities of Notes to the World Wide Web.
