We recently published an article “Introduction to the HOD container in composite applications” to the composite application wiki. Believe it or not many businesses are still using HOST based applications and now with composite application technology in Lotus Expeditor and Lotus Notes you can easily integrate those applications with other technologies with little development expertise. This also means the container can communicate with other Eclipse based view parts and even be integrated with the side-shelf.
You can get the latest HOD Container for Lotus Notes 8.5.1 and Lotus Expeditor 6.2.1 from the HACP product web site. HACP v7 now includes the HOD Container for Lotus Notes/Expeditor. You can also get more information on the HOD site for additional help.
