I'm trying to write a stand alone java program that manipulates the documents
in a notes database.

Basicly, I get a database and iterate through the documents in the database,
executing the doc.sign() and methods against each one.

The problem is: returns false each time ... and I can't figure out
why it is doing that. Is there any way to determine WHY fails? I
kind of expected it to throw an exception of it cannot do the save.

Have you tried using the save method with the force parameter?;

Do you have access to the documents; are there any reader/author fields to
prohibit you from making changes?
