Hi,
  This is not really a Java question bhut as I would be developing this in Java - then I guess I thught it best to place the question in this section as unsure what other area to place it in.
  Basically all I wanted to know is if you know if it is possible to read from a Lotus Notes database using SQL (i.e. through a ODBC connection).
  I would be running the SQl statement from a Java servlet.

As far as I know there is no easy way. AFIK Lotus deliberately didn't create an ODBC interface to their db's since they incorporate a lot more features than standard RDBMS's. They do have an API (or used to, at least) for C/C++. (check http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/download/search.jsp?q=toolkit+jdbc+notessql&k=any&cat=groupware&sb=&go=y&sr=1&rs=&S_TACT=&S_CMP=&pf=&dt=&x=28&y=8 to find the proper one for you).
In order to use it from JAVA you'd have to encapsulate it in a JNI (java native interface) module.

Well, CEHJ wrote his comment as I was writing mine. The info I was going on dates back to 1996. Ignore my previous comment.

Cheers CEHJ,
as an aside - do you know if this can be done (a connection being made) from asp (as opposed to Java) also?

I would have thought that the answer is almost certainly yes - via ODBC.
