I don't know what happened with that DXL toolkit, it was a long time ago (R4 and R5 if I remember correctly), maybe it was made obsolete.

It's tricky, since DXL toolkit was transfered inside Lotus platform there's no C++ support for that objects.
If I had to do that, I would create LotusScript agent that does the job inside Domino Designer and then C++ DLL that would have few functions for creating agent param document and calling an agent.

To do it all inside C++, you would have to use Xalan/Xerces C support to create LNNotesDocument fields using Domino's Document Type Definition (DTD files are located inside Data\xmlschemas\ folder).

There are plenty of information in the links I posted earlier, especially these:
