Any inputs appreciated.

Hi Rajen,

Five possibilities:

1) Insatll a Notes client on the PHP server (you will need a license for it), you can then use the PHP COM interface to access Notes

2) Get NCSO.jar, then bridge PHP to it via a PHP to CORBA interface

3) Add a form to the Domino database that looks like the PHP form and code it so it posts to the same place as the PHP form.

4) If you can code the destination action as a POST, you can have a Domino button with @URLOpen apply the submission directly

5) If you can modify the PHP request page, you can set up @URLOpen so it opens the page with parameters, which can then be read off the URL and prefilled into the form field


PS It still bothers me that:

1) Domino provides no programmable way to create a POST using its interbal web access functions
2) Domino places restrictions on programming server-side GETs

Your document and form in Notes ARE web-enabled, a Notes-form can be a web-form as well. Can you give more information, it's a very open question right now?
It depends on how many fields and how ?

The best method is to use inheritance in the form and set the field values to look at the inherited document fields..

So what actually u mean by from notes doc to web form ??

WHat is a web form? ANd what does passing a value refer to?

If this is an obvious question, the answer is simple. Just open the document. Domino knows what form to use and how to display values.

We have a tool using notes database where user submits a requirement. The submissions go through an approval cycle.

Now we need to submit the same data after approval  into another tool which is intranet based and is on php

I am planning to create a button on the notes document to pass the values  to the web form. Also to let you'll know they webform do have a login.

You want to transfer data to your other tool? Is it not possible to just use the data from the Domino application? Any Notes-form can be used to produce a page in HTML. Or XML, if you want to. Would that be a possibility? The button won't then be necessary.
YOu are trying it the other way round. Your question shoild not be 'Can Domino pass a value to naother web app?', it should be 'Can my app fetch a value from Domino?'.

Reverse the problem and then look for the solution.
