NotesIn9 201: Thoughts on the Future of XPages and NotesIn9 

By David Leedy | 9/26/16 10:55 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

This show is the sequel to my recent blog post titled “No More”. As I said in that post I HATE doing opinion stuff but feel that I now must. I also HATE talking about myself but because of things that happened at IconUK that is also a topic in the show. Because I wanted to talk about IconUK the show has grown bigger then I originally intended. Sorry that couldn’t be helped.

Build JSON from NotesView, support for multiple value fields 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 9/26/16 8:34 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

An old-fashioned NotesView can be a fast way to define JSON objects. Here is a xsnippet that give you some inpsiration. If you have fields with multiple values then the formula does not work anymore. You want to store an array in the JSON.

XPages Quick tip: Move Java files for a better Source Control experiences 

By Frank van der Linden | 9/23/16 6:28 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Over the last months we build the HR Assistant for the ICS World Wide Development Competition. The backend of the code is totally written in Java. The XPages and custom controls only serves the data to the browser, nothing more.

The Importance of Community 

By Paul Withers | 9/19/16 4:17 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Back in April, after Engage and an XPages on Bluemix seminar at IBM Ireland I wrote a piece called “The Future of (Domino) App Dev in a Single Word”. That word was community, and the feeling was driven by public and private initiatives around XPages and XPages development. This seems a profoundly apposite moment to revisit that sentiment.

And the winner is...... HR Assistant - elstar IT 

By Frank van der Linden | 9/19/16 12:04 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Last Friday during the closing session of Icon UK in London Inhi Suh announced, with a little help of Alan Hamilton, the results of the ICS Developer competition 2016. To my big surprise our submission, HR Assistant was selected as winner. Frédéric, my partner in crime in this competition was also very surprised a few timezones to the east from us.

Thank You NOTES IN 9 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once upon a time there was a guy who worked for a trucking company and he decided that he needed to learn this new XPages thing – and he figured why not share what I am doing? That was over 7 years ago and it grew into the largest single video repository in the history of IBM Domino.

Controlling the order of Script Resources (e.g. Jquery) with a Custom ViewRootRenderer 

By Cameron Gregor | 9/19/16 8:38 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

When loading Client Side Javascript libraries in XPages, sometimes the order that the libraries are ‘encoded’ (or written in HTML) in the <head> tag is important. For example jQuery and some of it’s plugins can have some issues if Dojo is encoded first.

ICONUK 2016 Session Materials

Here are the session materials from ICONUK 2016. Firstly, in the Administration track, "Back from the Dead: When Bad Code Kills a Good Server" session with my great co-speaker Bill Malchisky. The second session was my solo show, "REST Assured, Freeing Your Domino Data Has Never Been That Easy!

Below a recording of the Opening General Session at ICON UK 2016 by Teamstudio. The Opening Session includes the roadmaps for IBM Notes Domino.

Quick Post: Maven-izing the XSP Repo 

By Jesse Gallagher | 9/17/16 9:26 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

This post follows in my tradition of extremely-narrow-use-case guides, but perhaps this will come in handy in some situations nonetheless. Specifically, a while back, I wrote a script that "Maven-izes" the XPages artifacts, as provided by IBM's Update Site for Build Management.

ICONUK and the State of Domino Web Development 

By Sean Cull | 9/16/16 6:58 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

I am just back from a very impressive ICONUK. I can honestly say that it was the best LUG that I have been to. The best part for me was the informal discussions within the community. It is a time of change and the community discussions were real, interesting and honest.

Thoughts on my XPages Experience 

By Steve Zavocki | 9/16/16 2:11 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

It is painfully obvious that XPages is on its way out as a technology solution. Although I will always have a fondness for XPages, its time of relevancy was much shorter than I ever expected.

Adding icon columns to DataTables with FontAwesome 

By Michael G. Smith | 9/14/16 10:52 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

If you are modernizing a Notes/Domino application, chances are there are many underlying views that make use of column icons, which have always been one the great little features that users really loved about Notes. As Domino web apps became more prevalent, you could even create img tags that pointed to the icon source files on the server.

Adding @mention autocomplete like Facebook, Twitter & Google+ to your XPages app 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 9/14/16 9:31 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

For an application I was asked to add a feature to add commenting on main topics. In order to stimulate discussions it should be easy to include people in the stream, similar as in Twitter. So writing an @sign should invoke a type-ahead or auto-complete to a user-list and provide suggested users to address.

No More.

I hate doing opinion stuff. Who cares about my opinion? Probably not you. Certainly not my dog. I don’t often blog my opinion and it’s very rare that it makes it onto NotesIn9. It’s one of my rules actually.

Beyond XPages: How to use react.js in your next project 

By Csaba Kiss | 9/5/16 10:33 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

This is a screencast post about how to set up your development environment to use react.js library in your next “XPage” project. You might have read many blog post recently about the demise of XPages. It’s clear that IBM does not invest much in XPage development.

NotesIn9 200: Access Server Databases From Code 

By David Leedy | 9/2/16 1:17 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Wow! Major milestone here. I really don’t want to make too huge a deal of this at the moment but I do have to say thanks for all the contributors that helped the show get to 200 episodes. NotesIn9 has contributed 94 + hours of free tips and tricks to the community.

Quick XPages Utility: Keep Alive and Alert 

By Jesse Gallagher | 8/30/16 3:53 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

For one of my projects recently, I put together a small custom control that I sure wish I had thought to do years ago: a "keep alive and alert" control. For a long time now, the Extension Library has had a "keepAlive" control, which keeps a page session (and, usually, authentication) alive while the user has the browser window open.

IBM Domino to be or not to be 

By Fredrik Norling | 8/29/16 3:21 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

The last week after MWLUG there has been numerous blog posts about Domino. No roadmap IBM is killing Domino, there is no future for Domino, IBM haven’t released any new releases since 9.01. That is not true at all, if we look at what has been released since 9.0.1 came to market. IBM Domino customers have received 6 fixpacks but they are not only fixpacks they are feature packs.
