I am currently creating an agent that will save the document on another server and database. This agent is being called whenever the user clicks on the button.The document is a web page.The web page is on server A, what I want is when the user clicks on the button on the webpage, the document is saved on server B. The agent is shown below, but it does not seem to work.I use $$QuerySaveAgent to trigger the agent.
And also when should this agent run and which document should it act on?
'-----------------------------------
Sub Initialize
   Dim session as New notesession
   Dim doc as notesdocument
   Dim db as New notesdatabase("serverb","test.nsf")
Set db=session.currentdatabase
 Dim newdoc as notesdocument
set newdoc = New notesdocument(db)
set doc = session.documentcontext

Call doc.copyallitems(newdoc)
Call newdoc.save(True,False)
End Sub

Hi You are missing something in this code, the code should be like this

Sub Initialize
   Dim session as New notesession
   Dim doc as notesdocument
   Dim tgtdb as New notesdatabase("serverb","test.nsf")
Set db=session.currentdatabase
 Dim newdoc as notesdocument
set newdoc = New notesdocument(tgtdb)
set doc = session.documentcontext

Call doc.copyallitems(newdoc)
Call newdoc.save(True,False)
End Sub

PS:The db handle is overridden by the currentdatabase statement, I have created a new tgtdb to represent the foreign database


Good Luck

Yes Hemanth you are right the db should be different, I made some changes on the code so it would work on Notes, and it worked.But when I used the above code on the browser, it did not work.I think this method:
Call doc.copyallitems(newdoc)
Call newdoc.save(True,False)
does not work on browsers.Could you help me on what method will I use so that the document will be saved on a separate server and database?
Thanks a lot.

Hi

Use CopyToDatabase method of NotesDocument, but u may have to save the currentdoc in the currentdatabase and remove it after it is copied to another database.

Good Luck

Using this code on a browser will not work... From a background agent ( which is what the code is when it runs after you submit a form via a browser )  you cannot directly store documents in a non-local database.. You would have to store it locally and then replicate it to the other server.

So

   Sub Initialize
   Dim session as New notesession
   Dim doc as notesdocument
   Dim tgtdb as New notesdatabase("","test.nsf")
   Dim newdoc as notesdocument

   Set db=session.currentdatabase
   Set newdoc = New notesdocument(tgtdb)
   set doc = session.documentcontext

   Call doc.copyallitems(newdoc)
   Call newdoc.save(True,False)
   Call  tgtdb.Replicate("SERVERB")

   End Sub

I created a lotuscript agent triggered from a browser, what it does is save the document directly to the other server. From the log file, it stated that you are not allowed to save a document from another server and database. We are thinking of using Java to do this. If we use Java, we can have servlets on each server and these servlets can pass data to each other whenever a document is being saved.We are still doing a research on Java RMI. Need help on this one. Thank you very much for your help.
