LotusReader reads data from a Lotus Domino server. Data is read from Views, where each view entry is read as a single data record.

|Multi-value read mode||Reading strategy that will be used for reading Lotus multi-value fields. Either only the first field of the multi-value will be read or all values will be read and then separated by a user-specified separator.||Read all values (default) | Read first value only|
|Multi-value separator||A string that will be used to separate values from multi-value Lotus fields.||";" (default) | "," | ":" | "|" | "\t" | other character or string|
LotusReader is a component which can read data records from Lotus databases. The reading is done by connecting to a database stored on a Lotus Domino server.
The data is read from what is in Lotus called a View. Views provide tabular structure to the data in Lotus databases. Each row of a view is read by the LotusReader component as a single data record.
The user of this component needs to provide the Java library for connecting to Lotus. The library can be found in the installations of Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino. The LotusReader component is not able to communicate with Lotus unless the path to this library is provided or the library is placed on the user's classpath. The path to the library can be specified in the details of Lotus connection (see Lotus Connections).
LotusReader cannot read binary OLE objects from Lotus.
