Deleting Attachments - Administration

This article discusses Lotus Domino Notes, especially how to access to the documents stored in it with CORBA. This feature allow developers to write standalone applications that will use documents of Lotus. Moreover, the developer won't have to learn CORBA because the Lotus Domino Server has already mapped all interfaces, so we are pure users of an API. This article assumes you already have installed a Lotus Domino Server, configured the IIOP properly, and that you know how to create nsf database files.

Deleting attachments from a file isn't as easy as we think because the attachments could go with body text, and an email could have more than one body. Because of that, we need to retrieve all Body fields, save them to a buffer, (only text), remove it, and then recreate only with the buffer information.

String bod = new String();
RichTextItem body = (RichTextItem)oDocument.getFirstItem("Body");
    bod +=new String(body.getFormattedText(false, 0, 0));
    body = (RichTextItem)oDocument.getFirstItem("Body");
RichTextItem body2 = oDocument.createRichTextItem("Body");


As you can see in the first part of the algorithm, what we do is save all text information into a String object and we remove the body section. It would be better use StringBuffer. Then we create a new body, and we append all the text previously kept. 

Linking Documents

Linking documents to other documents is a very important feature because you can divide one document in multiple documents, with all documents linked, so when you consult, you can navigate through documents.

RichTextItem body = oDocument.createRichTextItem("Body");
body.appendText("Link to Other Document");


The code is so simple; we create a RichTextItem object, first we append a text, and then we append a document. What we would see is a document icon, and when we push it, we will jump to the document we have already appended.
