Venkat,
I didn't know Domino was a relational database (it isn't), so I searched. I saw an article. Now JDBC 1.5 is from a long time ago, but the concepts still apply. And I'm sure you can find more recent documentation on the official domino site.

IBM Domino is not a relation database. It is a document based database. You can connect to domino either by using lotusscript(IBM lotus note langugae) or write java programs in domino to connect with that. You can also used formula laguage of IBM lotus notes domino to connect with that.

All the best

@Jeanne Boyarsky - Thanks for your quick response. I tired to get the LDDJ.exe driver file for installation. But its not anywhere present. Can you please help me get it ? I tried surfing around IBM site but its not there.

@Vinod Vijay - Vinod Thanks for your reply , but i need to connect to Dominos database using a POJO. not through lotus notes itself.

You understand that a Plain Old Java Object has no inherent ability to connect to anything. Its just a plain old java object.

There are API to connect via CORBA. You should loo through the IBM redbooks.

Hi guys,

I found this. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21305841

So it means there is no more LDDJ. Checking out ways to connect as said in above link through notes.jar.
