Abstract

Disclosed is a functional improvement to the existing messaging/collaborating tool such as Lotus Notes*. It is desired that a sort of an OLTP (on-line, real-time, transaction processing) engine be included in Lotus Notes. If the application system is primarily characterized as an OLTP system then Lotus Notes according to this invention immediately transmits the transaction record to the next node, instead of waiting for the scheduled replication to occur. Otherwise, Lotus Notes behaves in its (default) usual processing mode, which is via replication.
