Simply stated, I’m going to build a mobile app for a notes database. I’m going to start with a pretty complex set of databases and bring them to a mobile phone. My goals and materials should be pretty typical for what most people are likely to have lying around - Lotus Notes db that is very old (10+years), very complex (hundres of views, forms and fields), and very large (1 gig+). The goal will be to distill the business functions down to a level that makes sense for a mobile version of that app, yet still provides the user with what they need. I’m also going to try 3 different approaches to the problem and explore the pluses and minuses of each. The first approach will be to work with out of the box stuff - ie XPages.
One more thing. I’m not a web guy and I’m not really a Notes guy either. I know enough about both to be dangerous and to know what to search for in google.
