Thinking of AngularJS? Maybe it’s not all that and a bag of chips after all.

By David Leedy | 5/27/15 1:32 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

For a little while I’ve been hearing from some respected friends that basically “AngularJS is Awesome”. I’ve sat in some presentations… seen webinars.. had Skype chats…. etc. So it’s on my “Interest List” but I’ve not devoted any time yet to try anything about.

Display Photo in Sametime Business Cards

By Thomas Hampel | 5/27/15 8:55 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Although pictures have been imported to the Domino Directory they were not showing up. It looks like the upgrade has overwritten the configuration we used before. Since version 9.0 the business card can be configured in the Sametime System Console under "Sametime Servers" by selecting the Sametime Community Server which you want to configure.

Single Copy XPage Design - Some Learning and Why It's Not For Me

By Paul Withers | 5/26/15 4:00 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

In a recent project I decided to use Single Copy XPage Design (SCXD). This is a seemingly useful technique that is in many ways similar to the concepts underpinning XPages on Bluemix: one database holds the data and it points to another database that contains the XPages-specific design elements – XPages, Custom Controls, StyleSheets, Themes, Images, custom Java code and third-party jars.

Bluemix Android App to steer Sphero Balls available as Open Source

Next month my colleagues and I from the IBM Emerging Technologies team will host an IBM Bluemix Internet of Things hackathon at Devoxx in London. As part of this effort we're open sourcing some of our IoT demos. I open sourced the simple Android app that communicates to Sphero balls via bluetooth and to Bluemix via MQTT.

Using the language bean from XPages Toolkit for Internationalization

By Patrick Kwinten | 5/26/15 1:04 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

You have people who tend to tick around where they live and work and you have people who tend to switch location now and then. Especially in Europe which is divided into many countries with many different languages, somehow operating under one flague, you are sometimes amazed that organizations have not fully adapted to the trend of “travelling” co-workers.

XPages and Java security troubles

By Martin Pradny | 5/25/15 3:35 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

This is more a rant than classic post, but I hope it may help someone or someone could prove me wrong, which would be even better. In recent app I use XPages Scaffolding from Jesse Gallagher. He does some magic in his code that relies on Java reflection to access classes that you can define in your NSF as your model.

The Recurring WebSphere Bug And Connections External Users

By Gabriella Davis | 5/24/15 8:40 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

I wanted to share a recurring WebSphere bug that I noticed over a year ago because although it was irritating then, if it occurs now it can actually prevent you from deploying Connections external users the way you want. Here's the scenario (and it's fairly common for me). IBM Connections 5 CR2 on WebSphere 8.5.5…

How to save date in a document item without time part on back-end

By Yuriy Pastovenskyy | 5/24/15 8:09 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

This is not something really tricky but it's nice to know. Let's imagine you need to save a single date or an array of dates without time part in a NotesDocument item. F.x. you need to do this from an agent so you don't have a form opened in UI with a date-field on it which property "Display time" is disable.

How to force UNK table to "see" required type of a field (to use it in FTSearch, for example)

By Yuriy Pastovenskyy | 5/23/15 11:24 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

If you work with Full-Text search a lot you could get into situation when your database considers field type incorrectly, f.x. it may recognize some field as a number when it is actually a text on a Form so you can't use FT-query like [FieldName]=*partOfText*.

Appcelerator Tip: Recover from a GIT Reset in Titanium Studio

This post is an example of how a GIT reset in Appcelerator’s Titanium Studio almost cost me 6 hours worth of work and how I managed to recover what I lost. Once upon a time, about a year ago, I spent the most part of my day working on a mobile app, when a critical issue arose that forced me to switch my project’s current source control branch.

Here are a few common causes of data integrity issues.

From URL Parameter to SessionScope for navigation

This is a very minor post, and something I expect most people can do on their own, but I thought I'd share what I've done. For a project, I have a single application, but I'll have multiple departments access it. It's easier to have a single database then multiples in this case, not the least because of the amount of data.

Domino KYRTool and SSL / TLS under Notes 9.02 - Positive Impressions

By Sean Cull | 5/20/15 9:47 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Last year IBM got into a bit of a pickle when the Poodle Exploits hit and there was no support for SSLV3 in domino. At the time we moved to putting Apache Proxy Servers in front off all of our web facing servers. I needed to deploy a new XWorks server for a customer or our “Knowledge Directory” product and we wanted to do some LDAP integration.
