OpenNTF Domino API, Graph Data Models and Visualization

By Paul Withers | 5 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

For some time the OpenNTF Domino API has included Tinkerpop and an implementation to store content in a graph database structure.

Tuning your XPages…

By John Dalsgaard | 5 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Ok this may promise a little more than I can hold. However, I just wanted to point the attention to some good advice that I had from Tony McGuckin (co-author of Mastering XPages) at IBM Connect 2014 in Orlando. This piece of advice surfaced through a review of a large application that I was building – and whether the architecture would “hold water” should the application become very popular.

Reusable Bootstrap Text Field

By Johnny Oldenburger | 6 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

In recent times I regularly work with Bootstrap in XPages applications. Creating the fields on forms is always a substantial task when working with Bootstrap in XPages. On the website of Bootstrap4XPages I came along a great post from Mark Leussink about reusable Bootstrap fields. In his post a referrence to a blog post by Brad Balassaitis was also made about More on Using Dynamic Value Binding to Create a Reusable Field. In this blog post I describe my first setup/test with a reusable Bootstrap Text Field.

By Troy Reimer | 1 week ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Per Henrik Lausten

iOS8 poses a problem for XPages applications using dojo dijits. I need to be able to fix this issue for Domino 9.0.1FP2 which has dojo 1.9.2. After a bit of pain and suffering, I believe that I have a solution and I wanted to share it with the community.

XSP Libraries

By Toby Samples | 1 week ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Since version 8.5.2, Domino Developers have an amazing tool that I feel has been underused due to the massive mindset shift of developing Domino Apps to developing Java Apps. The Domino Server now has the capability of consuming OSGi Libraries. These libraries can provide any amount of Java Code and provide it to all the apps on your server or domain via replication. Part of the complexity has to do with the way these libraries created and deployed.

The XSP object is a client-side JavaScript object that is built and delivered by the XPages runtime and it contains a number of useful functions, some of which are always available and some of which are context-specific. In this post, I’ll show two functions that are useful for client-side JavaScript debugging.

XPages: Execute Events with HTTP Get

By Sven Hasselbach | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

To execute an event on the server, you normally have to send a POST request, because actions will be executed in the Invoke Application phase of the JSF lifecycle. A GET request will only process the Restore View and the Render Response phase, that why you can not execute an event with a GET request.

It’s time. It’s time for me to get off my duff a little bit and try and “kick this up a notch”.

XPages: Optimized partial refreshes for event handlers

By Per Henrik Lausten | 1 month ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Sven Hasselbach has created an optimized version of the XSP.partialRefreshPost() method. This works great to reduce the number of form fields that are included in the request for a partialRefreshPost. But his version does not include support for running server-side actions because the the form fields included in the POST doesn't include the server-side event handler.
