I have written a number of Notes applicatons on a particular server.
I might be changing jobs and I'd like to take them with me to use at the new location.
What files must I take to make a complete migration to another Notes system.?

Just Your application and other related dbs which might be needed by your app.

reset the acl default to manager so that you can use it with your new id...

You should read your contract, though, because although you may have written the apps, I doubt you 'own' them (they probably are property of your current company), and some might consider this stealing....

And since you don't know how to take apps with you, I doubt you wrote them in the first place :-)

cheers,

Tom

"Some" might consider this stealing?  Unless you have a contract that states otherwise, any work done at the request of an entity and specifically on behalf of that entity, is generally considered a work for hire or work product of your engagemnet to the entity, and hence, proprietary to that entity... especially iif done in its place of business.  They own the intellectual property.  Ask nicely if you can reuse it.

Thanks for the assumptions but you are incorrect on all counts.

just the .nsf files then is sufficient unless other DB's are involved.?

other Dbs meaning any support databases that your app might be depending on, commonly lookup databases

Strange question for a developper....
The NSF probably holds data. If not illegal to copy it, it certainly more load to carry.
I'd make a copy into empty (no data) templates...
Copy ACL as well (for userroles), but do change the ACL after copying to have access using other id's.

Tom,
Isn't this "intellectual ownership"?

Ownership is both in my view.
Sure I wrote them under the umbrella of employment, but the concept and code came from my head. Isn't it reasonable to assume I could write it again if I wanted to take the time ?
That couldn't be prevented or proven to be otherwise.
Just saving myself some time by doing this.
