This article is about the integration of a custom IBM Domino database into IBM Digital Experience (DX). Besides the IBM Web Content Manager (WCM) the capabilities of the Digital Data Connector (DDC) are used. This article starts with outlining the integration options. After that a sample implementation follows. This demonstration is divided into two parts. Part one shows the integration of a sample database. A custom DDC plugin implementation is provided that connects to the database using the Java API of the Domino server.
Part two connects to the same database. However, the REST service of the Domino server as well as the DDC JSON profile is used for integrating the data.
In addition the Credential Vault is used to store necessary credentials. Moreover both solutions support a paging mechanism which splits up the data requested from the Domino server.
