Some years ago I developed an XPages application that heavily used ODA. In fact, it was the first I used Xots in. At the time, I needed a scheduled agent to send email reminders. I was frustrated that the only option if I wanted code in the NSF was a Java agent, which required me to add a jar file of ODA into the Java agent and copy some utility methods from my XPages code across to the agent.

Recently I’ve been digging into the Watson Conversation APIs. With Java being my language of choice, the natural starting point was the Watson Brewery demo which integrates with Watson Workspace. This in itself was a learning experience as I finally stepped beyond the world of Eclipse to use IntellJ IDEA, as mentioned in the ReadMe.

Those of us who have been working with Domino and Java for some time know that one of the big strengths over LotusScript is the host of standard Java libraries that can be utilised. If you want better string or number handling etc, you have Apache Commons libraries. If you want Excel export, you have Apache POI.
