Automatic conversion of design elements and business logic of Notes client applications
HCL Notes Client Conversion and Migration Wizard
XPager Converter Key Features
The XPager converts the hundreds of design elements including hide-when formula, tool-tips, data binding and more.
The XPager output can be customized (iteratively) and the customization can be applied to many databases. Any lessons learned, best practices or corporate standards can be applied automatically.
The XPager output can be customized without the need for software upgrades.
XPager injects static resources into the resulting database like style sheets, themes (bootstrap, border container). This is not only a time savings feature but enables best practices and the applications of standards via themes without the need to modify the application every time there is a business requirement (that never end).
XPager produces native code and injects it into the Notes application. The developer can modify the code as if they wrote it themselves. It converts most Notes design elements automatically and creates the markup. The Formula language is converted to SSJS. The LotusScript code is brought in place for easy conversion. There is no proprietary software involved.
XPager saves on the maintenance of the resulting applications since they are all consistent and uniform. This enables easy fixes and enhancements across many databases at once. It also gives the ability for new developers to quickly contribute to multiple projects.
XPager uses Bootstrap as the default theme allowing for easy mobilization of the converted applications.
Converting a Notes Client application to XPages

Examine the Notes Client application and decide what the resulting application should look like and do.
