Using Java in Lotus

I haven't been updating this site as often as I want too but work have been keeping me really busy.
My friend was asking why should he (Domino Developer) learn up Java? Basically for Lotus Notes application, it is quite sufficient to keep to Lotus Script and Formula. There are lots of advise why should we learn up Java but I'm not going to go into that here. I give let him know that the skill may come useful sometime even in Lotus Notes application. It would be good to branch out a little too.

So for the Lotus Notes application example, I gave him the link to a post I had sometime back in my earlier blog. The example show how you can use a Java image library to get property out of attached image files. I couldn't find any way of doing it in LotusScript (drop me a line if you know of a way). Check out the example here. At least he agreed that there are some use of Java in Lotus Notes application development.
