Post FP8 install - Does anybody know where the Xpages "Mobile" controls palette has gone? 

By Robert Ibsen Voith | 3/16/17 4:59 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

After installing the latest and greatest FP8, I realized that the Extension Library shifted a lot of components from ExtLibX into the ExtLib. One thing I can’t seem to find any more is the “Mobile controls” – which contained the “Single Page Application” wizard amongst other things. [SEE THE COMMENT]

Notes / Domino 10 

By David Hablewitz | 3/16/17 12:03 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

At IBM Connect 2017, the message from IBM was “Notes/Domino 9.0 support will not end for at least 4 more years”. Which to me sounded a bit like simply a stay of execution. Not so much a positive message as just a non-negative one. But Ed Brill has published a blog post on the IBM Social Business blog that gives more clarity to the message and I think this helps.

Domino REST performance analysis 

By Csaba Kiss | 3/14/17 3:26 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In this blog post, I have tested various REST services that are available in Domino including DAS, viewJsonService, customRestService, SmartNSF. My conclusion is that Domino REST services are woefully slow.

IBM Domino: Moving the view indexes outside the NSF database 

By Jesper Kiær | 3/13/17 10:10 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

As a new feature in IBM Domino Feature Pack 8 (FP8) for IBM Domino 9.0.1 is that you can move the view indexes outside the NSF. View indexes and Full Text Indexes are data derived from the "core" data, the documents in the database. This means they can always be rebuilt, if you have the data in the documents.

‘F’ is for Feature 

By Martin Donnelly | 3/9/17 7:32 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In order to ship new features IBM must often extend its backend classes to provide new APIs. I recognise a lot of the APIs called out in this screenshot because they are mostly the new ones added in FP8 to give you the capability of decrypting and encrypting documents.

Feature Packs Are Here 

By Martin Donnelly | 3/8/17 12:01 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Feature Pack 8 for IBM Notes/Domino has finally arrived and brings with it a slew of goodies for the Domino developer. From an XPages perspective alone, FP8 is loaded with the aggregation of all XPages Extension Library releases since 9.0.1 GA – that’s a total of 17 releases all rolled into FP8!

Swiper FP8 Integration Rollout 

By Cameron Gregor | 3/8/17 9:18 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Notes Domino 9.0.1 FP8 is finally here and as far as I know (I have yet to download it) it includes the necessary changes which will allow Swiper to swipe whatever it wants, whenever it wants, which is good news for people who don’t like to have ‘Build Automatically’ turned on.

Domino and Notes Feature Pack 8 

By Paul Withers | 3/7/17 6:07 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Today Notes and Domino Feature Pack was released. It’s good to see a developer-heavy release finally delivered. Apart from the Extension Library on OpenNTF, developers have had little to engage their interest over the last three years. But FP8 is a marquee release for developers and app dev server users.

Domino Feature pack 8 breaks Verse on Premises 

By Roberto Boccadoro | 3/7/17 1:38 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I installed Domino Feature Pack 8 and the new templates and Verse on Premises stopped working. The installation of the FP replaces a lot of files in Domino and it had reset the \data\osgi\shared\eclipse\plugins directory removing the files I had copied there for the VoP installation.

Domin & REST: Debug your Plugin 

By Sven Hasselbach | 3/7/17 11:05 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

When developing OSGi Plugins, you should have your own development server running on your local machine. Not only because of the faster deployment of changes (a new version of a plugin must always deployed with a HTTP restart), but because of the Java debugging posibilities: Only one Eclipse instance can connect to the JVM, and every request processed by the server will start the debugger.

IBM Connect 2017 Session Materials 

By Serdar Basegmez | 3/7/17 1:30 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

After a great conference, I have just been able to prepare session materials. Sorry for the delay but I had to complete the documentation for the demo application I have used in the REST session.

IBM Connect - Domino Application Development Review 

By Paul Withers | 3/5/17 5:50 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

This time last year, the message about Domino application development was very straightforward. Domino 9.0.2 was slated for Q4 2016, with the expectation that this would include open sourcing of not only XPages Extension Library components, but all XPages components.
