Contained properties

Data sources have the following properties.
action="editDocument|openDocument"
(dominoDocument) Specifies the action for treating a data source upon page open and submission. Defaults to creating a new document upon page submission.

Specifies the database containing the data source where name is the file name of a database relative to the Notes® data directory. Defaults to the current database. The name can include a server if the database is not local. The name can be a replica ID.
dataCache="full|id|nodata"
(dominoView) Specifies how to cache data between requests for the same page.

<xp:this.data>
	<xp:dominoDocument var="document1" formName="form1"></xp:dominoDocument>
	<xp:dominoView var="view1" viewName="view1"></xp:dominoView>
	<xp:dominoDocument var="document2" formName="form2"></xp:dominoDocument>
