Some time ago I added a demo to the DEXT database that showed how to create a Notes document which contained a Zip file which, in turn, contained the contents of the NSF in HTML format. A backup file, if you will.
Although the demo is there and I can see people have used it, it was always my intention to talk about it on here. So, here goes.
The concept is simple -- a WQS Java agent loops a view and creates a HTML file for each document and then adds it to a Zip file. At the same time it also creates an "index.html" file with links to all these HTML documents.
The index file is added to the root of the Zip file and the HTML documents are added to a subfolder within it.
When the WQS agent has done it attaches the Zip file to the "backup" document that is being created and this is then presented to the user for them to download and keep.
What This Looks Like
When you download and extract the Zip file you end up with a fully navigable website in a folder. You can then upload the folder to a normal web server and it would still work.
Here's what the root of the extracted folder looks like:
Opening the index file would show you a list of all the articles within it.
Notice there's also subfolders. In this case it's called "articles" but you could call it anything and/or have more than one to match the View structure of the source database.
If you look inside the "articles" folder you'll see something like:
See how there's a HTML document for each Notes document and they have the name of the original document's UNID.
Notice also that there are subfolders that also have the name of document's UNIDs. These subfolders contain any attachments (inside a further subfolder called "$file").
In the example Zip's index file looks for the article near the bottom called "The day before the 25th" and open that. Notice the inline image is intact!
Good question. You could of course make a backup just by creating a new copy of the NSF. However, what if, say, you wanted to migrate away from Domino, or you were leaving a company and going somewhere without Notes. Etc. Whatever the reason it's a useful tool.
