Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.

Make DominoDB also available as a Java binding

DominoDB as an NPM module is going to be the gRPC client (and more) to the new API infrastructure based on gRPC.


As gRPC is platform agnostic please consider providing direct support (HCL implementation) or alternate support (meaning make gRPC/Proton documented so others can understand it) so we can get a Java based gRPC/DominoDB implementation.


Node is fine but modern Java / Reactive Java / Java languages can (and would) allow developers and orgs with a Java skillset to exploit the new goodnees (present and future) and reuse work they already built.

    gRPC is cool, and I would like to take DominoDB NPM as the start point to use this gRPC channel. We definitely need to enable Java App to talk to Domino through this channel.

    Good - AppFusions has offered to assist in this so it is available sooner than later - to me, this is a base minimum. We have an SDK project for our platform  in play right now, and this came up in discussions for a Domino app sample app (“service”) to work
