Turning Notes Into SOA

As the father of Notes and now Microsoft's chief software architect, Ray Ozzie must have mixed feelings about tools like this.

Unify's new Microsoft Edition of Composer for Lotus Notes helps shops turn custom Notes applications into SOA services that work with various Microsoft tools such as SQL Server and SharePoint.

This is a very different approach to Notes migration. Instead of just moving the application logic to Exchange and Outlook (which ain't always easy), the tool migrates Notes databases to SQL Server, and converts the applications themselves to Web services written in C#. End users access the apps through ASP.NET apps or SharePoint. Pretty slick.
