DescriptionWhat we offer

Prior to IBM® Lotus® Domino® version 8.5 and the launch of XPages, the concept of modernization did not exist. This course will instruct you on the technique, capabilities, and advantages of updating or modernizing existing applications to use XPages technology. On Day 1 of the course, you will review and compare the architecture and design approaches of modernizing an existing forms- and views-based application; determine when it makes sense to modernize; and also identify the elements to be modernized, among other tasks. You will further examine the approach to use when planning for a modernization. Day 2 of the course covers refactoring and modernizing business logic, and provides an opportunity for you to apply what you have learned by modernizing an existing application.

Note :

This course is also available as a Self-paced Virtual Classroom Modernizing IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.2 Applications (SPVC) (D8P56)
