Update the core Notes UI code so that it generates a consistent modern feel to the interface

You don't need Eclipse to improve the interface.  The current basic client should be updated to a modern look this should have been done using C++

    Notes needs a fast, modern formatting engine, primarily for forms, with support for:
    - modern CSS, JS and LotusScript;
    - fast update: Back-end -> Front-end and vice versa, without having to reopen the document;
    - gorgeous, fast working components for richtext - tables, etc.;
    - opportunity to work with a collection of documents opened in UI, for example:
    Call NotesUIWorkspace.GetUIDocument(sUNID).Refresh() 'from embedded view
    - possibility of guaranteed set frame for filling (SetTargetFrame) without preliminary OpenFrameSet, etc.
    All this can be implemented without Eclipse.

    You can go from the question: Why is Java needed on the Client?
    1. Get/Put data to other system. That has already been decided by NotesHTTPRequest.
    2. Various text transcoding.
    3. Work with attachments without saving them to disk. The ability to create a file without saving to disk and attach it to a document.
    4. Smart classes for working with dxl: getting attachments, getting/replacing field values, converting RichText -> HTML and vice versa.

    All this can be implemented without Java. And Notes Client will be fast and modern again!
