The problem with AlarmOptons is that it is more than a data change; the appointment document also needs to move into a hidden ($Alarms) folder, or the Notes client will not process the alarm.  So you can set the alarm data all you want, but it will be useless without this additional change.

So, what to do?  Don't use JDBC.  Use the Domino Object Model, which is available to Java.  On a Notes workstation, it uses, I think, NCSO.jar, as a JNI implementation.  If Notes is not installed on teh workstation, you would need to remote a call to a Domino server to do this, via IIOP/CORBA.  (The JDBC driver requires a local Notes workstation, so this should not be an issue for you.)

Thanks qwaletee,
I used the remote calls via Corba and it worked fine (you helped with VB Samples).
But what I need is a solution without starting a Corba-process on the Domino Server.
I have a standalone Java-app and Notes installed on the workstation.
Thanks in advance.

If you have a Notes workstation installed, you can use teh identical Java code as you used in teh CORBA solution.  The only difference will be in how you initialize NotesFactory.

Well, one other difference. When you login via CORBA, you are supplying user/assword basic authentication credentials.  When you use teh local Notes code, you will always be using the workstation Notes ID.
