Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Forum! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Add mechanisms to get specifically data and design last-modified times
Currently, there's just Database#getLastModified, but that covers both data and design. Ideally, there would be lsxbe hooks to both portions of data from NSFDbModifiedTime in Database and for NSFDbModifiedTimeByName in Session.
New API to search database incrementally and return note ids and summary data
The C API contains a very powerful undocumented method NSFSearchExtended3 to search for documents in a database using a formula, apply a filter to the documents to be scanned (e.g. an IDTable to search a subset of documents only or a filter to sea...
Add a "Create plugin from existing JAR" wizard in Domino Designer
Today there is a tool/wizard that lets you create a JDBC Driver plugin. It would be nice to have the same to help create plugins from Jar-files. I currently use this method, but it's a little time consuming: https://www.dalsgaard-data.eu/blog/wrap...
In addition to the JDK Domino/Notes bring a lot of Jars that linger around in .../ext and some other directories. All of these should be separated and hidden from Java code in databases. They cause disturbances and we could not rely on them becaus...
Support for Web Service "choice" WSDL Schema element
Several standard elements like the Choice element in the WSDL Scheme are not supported as is.
The following elements are not supported it seems:
Build plugin support for code coverage and quality tools (see links)
many companies have quality assurance teams and standards. It is difficult for Domino application (XPages, LotusScript, Formula, Java Agents) to participate in these metrics.
Allow adding comments to Code/Java design elements
Adding comments to design elements is useful to keep track of changes, or to make other developers on the team aware of changes. While this feature is available for the vast majority of design elements in Domino databases, comments cannot currentl...
Missing methods specified in WSDL for some classes (like Attribute class)
Upon importing simple WSDL (attached here) onto Designer Client 901FP10 and 10.0.1FP3, i.e.
-Create a new java web service consumer
-Open, for example Document.java, no methods to set/get xs:attribute
-Another attempt, create a n...
Add DDE menu item to open the up to date online documentation in a browser
Domino Designer 10.0.1 does not contain up to date documentation, probably because translation is only done for major releases.
Up to date documentation is available here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSKTMJ_10.0.1/welcome/domin...
Remove the necessity to call sinitThread/stermThread
The need to (de-)register threads has always been a source of panic. E.g. calling Domino functions from within Swing. But Java 8 brings another, more subtle problem. Working with streams makes a lot of things much easier and more clearly - but if ...
