i have spent the last couple of days locked in a meeting room working out the architecture of a new system we have been commissioned to design. it's pretty hard-core stuff involving various elements from domino, websphere and .net. the communication layers between them all are still up for discussion but the current thinking is to use web services for some parts and specific jdbc drivers for the performance sensitive areas.

all in all acronym and new technology heaven. of course we still have to do estimates and prove some of what we have been talking about but this is interesting stuff (honest :o)).
