Accessing the Domino Objects through COM

The back-end Domino Objects have a Component Object Model (COM) interface. The COM interface is the same as the LotusScript interface, with some exceptions. These exceptions are noted below in "General exceptions to LotusScript specifications" and "Specific exceptions to LotusScript specifications," and in the LotusScript classes A-Z reference.

COM provides both early-binding (custom) and late-binding (dispatch) interfaces. Early binding makes the Domino classes available as typed variables with compile-time checking. Late binding can be used where the language (for example, VBScript) precludes early binding.

Note This feature is new with Release 5.0.2b.

Note This feature is not supported under OS/2, under UNIX, or on the Macintosh.
