I made a application in ASP.net for internal use. It asp.net and it use a microsoft SQL server 2005 for the databases.

Almong others table in my database, i have a Client table. But we got a application call saleplaces to deals with those kind of things. I dont really know this application (for now) but i know it run on lotus notes. here a link for that application

http://www.salesplace.com/web/cms.nsf/pages/products_sales.htm

So, i want to replace my "Client table" with some kind of link to that application.
I though of 3 solution, in order of interest.
- The best way whould be if i could have a datatable in my dataset (the .xsd file).
- The second one whould be if i could have a linked server on the MS SQL server to conect to lotus notes.
- The third (and as a last resort) whold be to find a way to update (automaticly please) the SQL "Client table" whith the lotus notes database.

So, What I need to apply one of those solutions?

You can try the NotesSQL driver (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/products/notesdomino/notessql/) or LEI  (http://www-01.ibm.com/software/lotus/products/enterpriseintegrator/) which is a higher level solution.

You might even be able to try a web service of some sort but not sure what your app does or needs

I m trying the NotesSQL driver, i download the last version, and i got information on where the nsf file is and everything. but i cant connect correctly.
If i dont set a userid, it detect my user i`m loged with, and ask for the password each time it try to access the database. (that bad for a web server), but i could extract the data.
If i set a user, i get  the following errors, the ****my userid**** is my own user and I extracted the data previously. i extracted it using the toll from my Notes id file.
I made a quick check and it look like a lot of peoples got problem with NotesSQL.
Did you made it work using ASP.net or you just throw that without experienced it?
Anyway, as i was writing that comment. i found info about Nsql_ALM.exe that allow me to "add user" to an autentificated list. im not sure how that will work on the server....
Anyway, that thing is ridiculously slow!!! i think, i i go that way, i will have to use the  third (and as a last resort) way, thats just too slow!
 
 
So, anyone got others ideas?

you have to have a user ID file and password to create a session to connect in notes. That is one of the security measures. With ASP.NET you can specify a service account to use or even a windows account but that will not translate over to notes.

I'm not a big fan of NotesSQL and we use LEI here. There used to be some commerical products (Proposion N2N ADO.NET driver for notes) but they no longer exist after being bought out from my understanding

Maybe this will help
