Sharing Technology has announced version 1.1 of Papirus for Lotus Domino, which allows users to display content from heterogeneous Windows applications inside Notes documents.
The software, which now supports Lotus Domino 5, behaves like a print server: When users wish to publish content from an application, they open a Papirus window in the relevant Notes document. Users then print out the data from the application by selecting Papirus as the printer.
The software then takes the printed output and transforms the content into a vector graphics format, the company said. This format can be viewed by any Notes user who opens that document, regardless of whether the user has a copy of the original application.
Text, bitmap graphics and vector diagrams can all be stripped from the document and pasted into other applications.
Sharing Technology said the software can also help organisations bridge the gap between legacy mainframes and their modern systems.
Guillaume Deudon, product manager at Sharing Technology, said: "If you are running a Windows terminal emulator connected to a mainframe, you can now use Papirus to publish that data onto a Domino server so that it is available to all your Notes users. It can even be accessed with a simple web browser."
