Using Docker and ELK to Analyze WebSphere Application Server SystemOut.log 

By Christoph Stoettner | 5/28/16 10:19 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

I often get SystemOut.log files from customers or friends to help them analyzing a problem. Often it is complicated to find the right server and application which generates the real error, because most WebSphere Applications (like IBM Connections or Sametime) are installed on different Application Servers and Nodes. So you need to open multiple large files in your editor, scroll each to the needed timestamps and check the lines before for possible error messages.

Attachments and Java Beans 

By Greg Reeder | 5/27/16 4:49 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Up until this point, I must admit that I have been lazy. Even though most of the XPages I have created in the last two years have made extensive use of Java Beans, I have left the attachments to the XspDocument and the typical upload and download controls.

Enhanced Editors 

By Eric McCormick | 5/27/16 8:00 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Oliver Busse

Recently, I had a couple of experiences stick out in my mind that made me think I should blog about some “fancy editors”. I’ve referenced them in a couple of my sessions, used SublimeText heavily in the past, and I’ve always been one willing to try out new things.

Graph – a closer look at the data 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 5/26/16 1:54 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

A graph database data is represented as ‘vertices’, sometimes called ‘nodes’. The relationships between vertices are represented by connections called ‘edges’. Graph databases also store metadata or ‘properties’ about vertices and edges.

Using jQuery.resize to Enhance Responsive Design 

By Shean McManus | 5/26/16 12:47 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Twitter Bootstrap provides some convenient grid scaffolding to use for responsive design applications. The xs-sm-md and lg classes allow you to adjust your design based on the screen real estate available. Sometimes, however, this isn’t enough.

Project Spotlight: OpenLog, XPages OpenLog Logger, XLogBack 

By OpenNTF | 5/25/16 8:06 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

For this month's project spotlight, I wanted to highlight error logging. Firstly, it's worth making a clear distinction, that the projects on OpenNTF help with error logging. But error handling is a completely different topic and no framework, regardless of the language, can ensure errors are appropriately handled for custom applications.

Efficiently Keeping an XPages Session Alive with JSON RPC 

By Brad Balassaitis | 5/25/16 8:04 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

There are a variety of ways to programmatically prevent an browser session from timing out due to inactivity.

In my last post, I mentioned that a big part of the job of the Darwino-Domino replicator is converting the data one way or another to better suit the likely programming model Darwino-side or to clean up old data. The way this is done is via a configuration database on the Domino side (an XPages application).
