Eclipse Plugin for Domino

by Volker Weber

Keith Smilie writes in a comment on this site:

I have been developing an Eclipse plugin for Domino which is just about ready for alpha testers. The plugin is called Domiclipse and allows a developer to use Eclipse for all *Java* development and then 'replicate' the changes back to Domino.

For more information have a look at


Now that would be fantastic!

(I do all Java Development for Domino in Eclipse already - except for agents. This would be the last logical step... and save me from updating .jar files and recompiling the agents all the time. Great Idea!)

Cool, I'll add it to my Domino
Application Development Tools page

What does this tool do? Not much. It saves you the trouble of copy/paste to the agent. It also (mis)uses a the nice word "replication" (as did MS and Oracle).

Here is what I want:
Open Designer.
Create new agent...
Eclipse opens.
Write code (in Eclipse).
Test code (in Eclipse against Domino dbs).
Deploy code (replicate to production/staging area).
Go home and think of all those poor Oracle and WebSphere sods who are still trying to deploy:)

That's pretty much what Domiclipse is designed to do.

Domiclipse (will) work exactly as you described above except you won't need to open Designer! :)

The use of the word 'replicate' is somewhat, er, devious. Initially I called it Synchronise but then thought that Domino developers are more likely to understand the 'concept' of replication and the associated concerns of replication conflicts etc.

But a rose is still a rose, whatever it's called. :)

In my case, it (hopefully) also saves me the trouble of figuring out which agent I have compiled with which version of the .jar-file...

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
