Notes In 9 – 018 – XPages: Data Relationships

In this demo I talk how the ability to do a lookup inside a view control or repeat control allows us to do some different data modeling that has never been possible in traditional Notes development.

I’ve created a little example that allows you to link contacts to each other and assign relationships between them. As a bonus, I show an example of using a view control and also a repeat control. In addition I have an example of reversing it to show who is related to a particular contact. Similar to “My followers” in Twitter.

The goal of the show is really to demonstrate that XPages allows us to re-think how we design our data.
