I have been trying to figure out which way would be best for a long time
now.  Luckily the scope on my project has changed so many times that I have
not had to make a decision yet.  I am hoping that the Virtual "stuff" in
LEI 6 will be the answer.  With that the data can stay in DB2 and it can be
accessed as if it was in Notes with no real extra amount of coding.  I
personally don't like the idea of having data in two places and trying to
keep them in snyc.  So far I am leaning towards using LSXLC in Notes to get
the data from the back-end when needed. At least that is what I will have
to go with until I can get my hands on LEI 6.

I've got a client who is in the process of developing a purchasing
application in Domino. The discussion they are now having relates to

Their RPG programmer thinks that they will get acceptable performance by
doing lookups of vendors, G/L account numbers, etc., by passing these
parameters to the accounting system machine and getting responses back.

The Domino programmer is saying that they need to have "duplicate"
databases on the accounting system machine and the Domino machine, and then
just keep them in synch.

When these master files are updated on the accounting system machine, a
program can be written to push this data into work files that can then be
retrieved by the Domino machine using an agent that runs on a frequent
