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.

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

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.
