Hello guys!

What's up? Hope you are all doing great. Its been long and I have a lot of catching to do.

Anyone of you have been to LotusSphere 2005? How was it like? Where does Domino seem to be going to? Is it the time to think of a technology change? What's your take?

Hey Maddy! What's up? Long time, yes. What's new with you?

Thanks for the link. I have been searching too and have read somewhat about it. Seems, it is wise to refresh my Java. Actually, I have just finished a project and they are trying to push me into .Net. I am pushing for Java. Let us see how it goes.

WOW!!
Now we will have a .Net/Java and Lotus Notes Pro.
Looks like you are planning correctly to the future of Lotus Notes. This wil be very helpful for 7 and 8 versions. And also Web Sphere wil be lot more easy.

My work is same. Enhancements and Support. Very rarely I am getting complex projects. If I as for any of the complex projects, they are throwing Calendar View Issues.

You are into better position MAN.

Ranjeet,
I am sure everybody is in dark about the future of domino, but i feel we can easily make it to other platforms  if u are able to understand the basics. For instance, i was put into ASP, but it took me less than a week to get the feel, We have faced the biggest kludges in notes/domino, I feel we can easily face the other products. Infact in some other post by maddy, myself and TOM were having a discussion related to websphere and .net. My suggestions were towards .net due to the ease with which a application can be developed but Tom gave me the 'gyan'(it's a hindi word for all the non-indians there) by talking abt Websphere

But at the end of the day, my advise would be

      a. read lot of things , it doesn't hurt
      b. Be good in basics
      c. Be in domino ;)

Hey, glad to hear from you! Yes, reading doesn't hurt. That's the reason I was reading the whole day today. lol....

Here are some of the pages I read:

Well,, I have till tomorrow to decide. As of now I have said no to .Net. My argument has been that I have worked with MS technologies quite for some time and I don't want to go back to it. My stand is, put me in Java if need be. Otherwise let me stay back in Domino. Lets see how it goes.

Coming back to Domino, from the signals I am recving, it is most likely to be a Java world in future, with or without DB2/WebSphere or blah blah blah. It is high time that Domino got rid of stuff like Formula Language (that one is a real oldie). In the presense of Java and other technologies that are catching up, I think if IBM doesn't do something, Java & Co. may eat the Domino market. Java and related technologies are growing in the size by the end of the day everyday. OpenWFE, Hibernate, EJB and not to mention WebSpehere. Computing doesn't seem to indicate a stop on growth. How unsure the future is!
