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 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 UNIX, or on the Macintosh.
