I still like my old Mug .....By Jens on 01/04/2006 at 02:15 PM EST
... from the time, when Lotus still was Lotus Inc. and Domino was an Add-In to

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
