There have been rumors of stagnating or removing support for Xpages in the Notes client. Our customer base needs the ability to use the Notes Client in an off-line mode. Mobile workers do not always have a communication channel available. The laptop/tablet must be able to continue basic functions with local replicas when a network or internet connection is not available.
We have significant investment in XPiNC function that functions both in offline and online modes of operation. That function must include traditional Notes support (formula, forms, views, lotusScript, XPages, etc.). The idea that everyone always has network, cell service or Internet is foolish.
