Add namespace property to (Notes)DominoQuery class

When working with DQL, best practice is to create/update/remove indexes programmatically using their according methods.

To avoid conflicts with existing views of the same name, all indexes created should have a prefix.

This can be achieved by using a static string.

Const prefix = "dql1_"

call dql.createIndex(prefix & "idxBySubject", arrFields)

For the sake of object oriented programming, (Notes)DominoQuery should be enhanced by a new property - "namespace"

This makes it easier to keep the maintenance of indexes consistant. Especially, if you have more than one DQL object.

Dim dql As NotesDominoQuery

Set dqlOne = db.Createdominoquery()

Set dqlTwo = db.Createdominoquery()

Set dqlOne.namespace = "dql1_"

Call dqlOne.Createindex("idxBySubject", arrFields)

Set dqlTwo.namespace = "dql2_"

Call dqlTwo.Createindex("idxBySubject", arrFields)

This would automatically create indexes



dqlOne.removeIndex("idxbySubject") would automatically find the correct view/index by the namespace
