Installing Nginx Reverse Proxy on CentOS for Domino Our Experience

By Richard Moy | 7 hours ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Over the past few weeks there has been a significant number of discussions about Domino and the lack of SHA-2 support. Jesse Gallagher had an entire MWLUG 2014 session on this very topic. When I ask Jesse to present on this topic, unbeknownst to me what a hot topic this would become and so timely. First, IBM should have fixed these problems years ago. For us this is a critical issue that if not addressed will kill the market for Domino.

XPages: Execute Events with HTTP Get

By Sven Hasselbach | 12 hours 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.

Quick guide on how to index data from IBM Domino databases in the Apache Solr

Full Text indexing has always been a great feature of IBM Notes and Domino. In the old days it was rare to see other systems have Full Text Indexing and it was really a unique and useful feature of IBM Notes and Domino.

A Note About Installing the OpenNTF API RC2 Release

By Jesse Gallagher | 4 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In the latest release of the OpenNTF Domino API, the installation process has changed a bit, which is most notable for Designer. The reason for this is due to the weird requirements in Designer for properly getting source and documentation working. When downloading the file, instead of the previous Eclipse update sites, there are two Update Site NSFs: one for Designer and one for Domino. There are a couple ways you can use these:

Linux Bash Bug - Shellshock - is Real: Get Patched (AIX, Mac Too)

By Bill Malchisky | 5 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Kenio Carvalho

This is ugly, but fortunately you just have to update to a fixed Bash version and you are fine (for now). No need to reboot your system either. Red Hat is out early on this and escalated this appropriately.

Free Software – Password Reset for Notes/Domino

By Karl-Henry Martinsson | 6 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Earlier this year I was asked to research some alternatives for a web-based password reset function at my work. One of the larger support burdens are users who forget the passwords, especially in the first few days after changing it. We have a 90 day password lifespan, then a new password need to be picked. Some users wait until the last minute, which usually is Friday afternoon right before they go home, making it very likely that they will forget the new password over the weekend. Another big group is auditors, who may come in every 6 months or so, and by then their passwords have of course already expired.

Domino and SSL: Come with Me If You Want to Live

By Jesse Gallagher | 6 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Looking at Planet Lotus and Twitter the last few weeks, it's impossible to not notice that the lack of SHA-2 support in Domino has become something of A Thing. There has been some grumbling about it for a while now, but it's kicked into high gear thanks to Google's announcement of imminent SHA-1 deprecation. While it's entirely possible that Google will give a stay of execution for SHA-1 when it comes to Chrome users (it wouldn't be the first bold announcement they quietly don't go through with), the fact remains that Domino's SSL stack is out-of-date.

Announcing the NotesIn9 Hackathon: Race to 199

By David Leedy | 6 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

It’s time. It’s time for me to get off my duff a little bit and try and “kick this up a notch”. It’s time for YOU who are reading this post to get a little more involved and “Join the Conversation” To me a Hackathon is an event were people come together to contribute small pieces to complete a bigger puzzle. I’ve been thinking of this ever since someone came up with the #CodeForTim hashtag. When we lost Tim, I changed the motto of NotesIn9 to “Learn, Code, Share” to honor my friend and better reflect the mission of NotesIn9. Well that’s what this Hackathon is all about.

Emoticons in Domino FP1 and FP2

By Oliver Busse | 1 week ago | - | Added by Per Henrik Lausten

If you ever dealt with Emoticons in your content you may find a difference regarding the path that is used to reference the icon images depending if you use Domino 9.0.1 Fixpack 1 or 2. I noticed that for a while but now I examined that a little closer: If you create content in a richtext control and use an Emoticon (aka a Smiley) you may get broken links to that image recouse that resides on the server.

XPages: Optimized partial refreshes for event handlers

By Per Henrik Lausten | 1 week 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.

Using HTML5 Notification API in XPages

By Samir Pipalia | 2 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

HTML5 introduces Web Notifications API which “allows alerting the user outside the context of a web page of an occurrence, such as the delivery of email“. This opens up quite a few possibilities for developers like alerting a user when a document needs approval irrespective of the XPage he is currently on. In this example I will use the Extension Library control Remote Service to poll a view to check if any documents require approval and if yes then show notification to user.

Maximum file upload size in Domino all the places to edit

If you ever wanted to increase the file upload size in Domino you have probably seen that there are several places to update depending on the configuration.

So I though I would write a post about this I might help someone else, or help me the next time I forget.

Caching in XPages – not as straightforward as you would believe

By John Dalsgaard | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Per Henrik Lausten

Well, you may know that I am a fan of MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern. One tempting feature of using an MVC pattern is that it is pretty straightforward to implement a caching mechanism. This can easily be done in the facade layer of the model. And just imagine what happens if all of the data is ready in memory – and you only need to go to the disk/database when some of the data is updated. I can assure you that this means SPEED…. But as with so many things – more wants more. Wouldn’t it be nice to preload all data on start of the HTTP server? Then you would avoid the first user hitting the delay of loading data from the database – it will already be ready in memory. This article is about my experiences with trying to obtain this. And I must warn you – I have not yet found the “silver bullet”.
