Reading files stored in the NSF webcontent folder 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 9/28/16 2:57 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

In an XPages application I am creating presentations (openxml presentations is perhaps a more correct defintion I guess). Since I would like to use the template for house-styling I have to read it in from somewhere and use it in my code.

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.

REST Services, JsonJavaObject and Dates 

By Paul Withers | 9/24/16 10:35 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Oliver Busse

In REST services, the standard format for dates is the ISO 8601 format, which formats the time offset against UTC. So 24th September 2016 12:00:00 British Summer Time would be a string in the format “2016-09-24T12:00:00+01:00”. However, when you want to use that in your application, you need to convert the text string to something your application can use, which when doing a JAX-RS REST service means some flavour of Java date.

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.

A Conversation with Barry Rosen, at IBM: Part II

Below is the completion of my interview with Barry Rosen, IBM Offering Manager for ICS. Enjoy! As indicated in the slide yesterday, the entire feature set of 9.0.2 will not be released into one Feature Pack (FP), but over four. Yes, the next four FPs will introduce what 9.0.2 would have offered.

A Conversation with Barry Rosen, at IBM: Part I 

By Bill Malchisky | 9/20/16 1:24 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

During ICON UK 2016 in London, I took some time to talk with the IBM Offering Manager for ICS covering IBM Notes, Domino, Verse on Premises, and Sametime, Barry Rosen. Our initial Q&A turned into about a 30 minute dialogue, which I found quite informative. With his permission, I am posting the more interesting parts of our conversation.

Thanks, David Leedy!

It seems very fitting that part way through a blog post about community, Marky Roden released his “Not NotesIn9” celebration of David Leedy. It’s been a pleasure to know Dave and call him a friend for so long. So, somewhat belatedly, here’s my video. Below it there’s a picture of Dave, if you don’t know him (sorry, couldn’t resist!).

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.

2016 OpenNTF Board Elections 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 9/19/16 12:55 PM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

I have registered myself as nominee for the position of Contributor Director for the OpenNTF board. There are 3 positions for 4 candidates so the changes are high I would say. I have found OpenNTF always the main spot to learn and be informed about ICS solutions so I hope to learn more via this membership and share it with others!

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!! 

By Mark Roden | 9/19/16 9:54 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

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.

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.

Just stunned….

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.

9.0.1 FP7 and how to enable the new port encryption settings 

By Darren Duke | 9/14/16 10:18 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

9.0.1 FP7 has shipped. It's not all we hoped (only three new features, and no Java 8) but yet again the Domino security team has added stuff, this time the oft requested update to Notes client port encryption. But (at the time of writing) all the technotes on how to enable this either go to the wrong page (ICCA) or a nice looking, but still pointless 404 page.

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.
