The good folks at IBM give us some more information on how to extend their tools, this time with a look at porting Domino applications to Solaris and Linux. It's not an easy process, as the reviewer admits:

" Of primary importance is whether your application is self-contained within Domino. If the application is self-contained within Domino, it doesn't have any hooks outside the Domino operating environment, and can therefore run within any Domino operating environment, including Linux or Solaris. If it is not self-contained, some modification may be necessary to accommodate the new operating system...."

"...neither the Linux nor the Solaris Domino server currently supports ActiveX, OLE, DDE, Visual Basic, or COM/DCOM operations. If your application does contain such calls, you will need to modify the application."
