Using the namePicker from the Extension Library in XPages

By David Navarre | 8/1/15 4:30 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

One of the things that always seemed weak to me about my Domino web implementations was the selection and display of names. Now that XPages turns our work into the creation of actual web pages, the tools available are so much better and extend the flexibility of Notes development into the 21st century.

BAD bug found in IBM Domino 9.0.1 FixPack4 (FP4)

By David Leedy | 7/31/15 4:47 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

If you have a view column that is calculated by a formula and you change the programmatic name of the column to something that matches a field on the document that that fields value will show in the view column and NOT your calculated formula. This does NOT occur in FP3. We’ve seen this in the Notes Client as well as in XPages Code.

Maven Native Chronicles, Part 2: Setting Up a Windows Jenkins Node

By Jesse Gallagher | 7/26/15 9:47 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Before I get to the meat of this post, I want to point out that Ulrich Krause wrote a post on a similar topic today and you should read it. The build process I've been working with involves a Jenkins server running on OS X (in order to build iOS binaries), and so it will be useful to have a Windows instance set up.

Maven Native Chronicles, Part 1: Figuring Out nar-maven-plugin

By Jesse Gallagher | 7/24/15 3:32 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

As I mentioned the other day, my work lately involves a native shared library that is then included in an OSGi plugin. To get it working during a Maven compile, I just farmed out the actual build process to Visual Studio's command-line project builder. That works as far as it goes, but it's not particularly Maven-y.

By Sean Cull | 7/23/15 9:00 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

We have had a spike in help desk calls with general “oddness” in one of our XPage applications. This has been triggered by an upgrade to the Domino server that included a new CKEditor version. It seems as though Chrome ( possibly other browsers ) cache the old CKEditor files in the browser.

The Mindoo FTP Server project provides an FTP server wrapped into an XPages application. It is based on the Apache FtpServer which runs as OSGi plugin on the server side. One day a customer reported the FTP server would no longer work. A quick check showed that port 21 does not respond any longer.

Limitations with multiple instances of XPages applications on IBM Bluemix

By Michael Ruhnau | 7/20/15 4:49 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

I discovered some "limitations" or caveats while I was playing with XPages on IBM Bluemix tonight. I setup two instances of the To Do Boilerplate. The first thing that annoyed me is that the import of the Bluemix Starter code of the second instance replaced the NSF of my first To Do app.

Adding Components to an XPage Programmatically

One of my favorite aspects of working with apps using my framework is the component binding capability. This lets me just write the main structure of the page and let the controller do the grunt work of creating fields with validators and converters.

I am late with this but finally I got here, too. XPages arrived on IBM's PaaS platform Bluemix last Friday - great! In March 2015 I was told there will be a beta program which I also can join - I never received any info or invitation to it though. To be honest: I didn't have the time to ask about it since then.

Building On Premises XPages The Bluemix Way

The beta of XPages in Bluemix introduces the concept of splitting design from data, with (on the whole) one NSF for the XPages components and one for the data. But for me that’s not a new concept, and has not been for some time.
