Deploying an application

The tasks involved with application design, database design, database management, and DominoTMsystem administration may overlap, depending on the size of your organization and the structure of job responsibilities. In some organizations, an application developer may be responsible for both application and database design, while in others, a database manager may handle all database design and management tasks. In addition, database management overlaps with Domino® system administration.

Therefore, depending on your organization, make sure you work closely with the people who are responsible for design, management, and administration tasks. For example, controlling user access is primarily a Domino® system administrator's responsibility, yet the application developer may determine user access levels because they are often integral to the database design. If you need to make design changes after a database is in production, be sure to:

  • Work with the Domino® administrators to implement and coordinate design changes
  • Consult with Domino® administrators when putting databases on servers, because administrators are aware of server resources and the connections between servers

For more information on designing or redesigning databases, see the Notes/Domino Release Notes®. For more information on rolling out a database, as well as information on Domino® administration, see Domino® Administrator Help.
