Let’s Get Real – What’s Domino V10 – Feb 28 Webcast Synopsis 

By Andrew Manby | 3/15/18 1:43 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Last week we gave the Domino community a sneak peek into what’s currently in the HCL labs. Specifically, that’s available to share in our candidate Domino V10 release coming in 2018. What we covered in the webcast is not the complete story, we will be providing more information about V10 as the months unfold.

Let’s Encrypt now supports Wildcard Certificates and LE4D will support it too 

By Detlev Poettgen | 3/14/18 11:21 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

We’re pleased to announce that ACMEv2 and wildcard certificate support is live! With today’s new features we’re continuing to break down barriers for HTTPS adoption across the Web by making it even easier for every website to get and manage certificates. Wildcard certificates allow you to secure all subdomains of a domain with a single certificate.

Quick Tip: „Design replace failed: cannot add role 

By Oliver Busse | 3/14/18 11:11 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

This is basically for me to remember and to find it again once I stumble upon this message again. Sometimes you will get this error message when trying to refresh or replace the design of a database using a template. If so, please check if the template comes with a predefined ACL, especially roles.

Encryption in XPages: Remember to Set Xsp Properties 

By Paul Withers | 3/14/18 11:07 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Regardless of recent announcements, XPages is still my preferred option for standalone rapid application web development. Once an appropriate level of understanding of the lifecycle is gained, there’s a comfortable level of logic in how it works.

Display all allowed readers of documents in a view column 

By Karsten Lehmann | 3/6/18 11:46 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

By setting the programmatic column name and formula value of a view column to "$C1$", the column automatically displays the content of all reader items in the document. If there are any readers, the column also container the author item values, since these are also allowed to see read-restricted documents.

How SmartNSF came to rescue in a heavily surveilled little (bird) house 

By Robert Ibsen Voith | 3/6/18 8:56 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

One small hobby project of mine is a birdbox with an wifi enabled IP Camera. Much more fun to watch those small house sparrows build their nest and see how hard they work to bring up new kiddo-birds. The images from the web camera surfaces on an web page, and everything worked fine last year. However, firing up the camera this year, nothing showed up!

Next Project: ODP Compiler 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/5/18 5:33 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

One of the larger thorns in my side with my Domino development lately has been trying to automate builds of on-disk projects into NSFs via Jenkins. In theory, the process is pretty straightforward. It even works sometimes! However, particularly once you add in the necessity to deploy OSGi plugins to Designer first and want to run it from Jenkins, things get extraordinarily flaky: Designer may not launch properly from a behind-the-scenes Jenkins runner, the plugin installation may mysteriously fail, and so forth - and the error reporting is difficult at best.

Domino REST Service Plugins and Pre-Loading Caches 

By Paul Withers | 3/5/18 6:07 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Last week I had an email from Mat Newman passing on a query for a REST servlet plugin. The person was noting that when sending a tell http osgi ss command to the server, the plugin was showing as “<<LAZY>>” and only changed to “<<ACTIVE>>” after the first call, when the code in the Activator runs.

Domino 10 App Dev Thoughts - Be Scared, Be Excited 

By Paul Withers | 2/28/18 5:59 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Today’s webinar on Domino 10 brought a lot of announcements. I won’t cover the announcements about Notes Client here – we were teased about a slimmer client and auto-updating of that client, but I’m sure we’ll find out more at IBM Think. I’ve already blogged my thoughts about the Notes Client as well.

Upcoming events & the IBM Champions program

My blog has been really quiet the last few months for which my apologies. It’s one of those times where I simply don’t have time to blog nor the topics to blog about. But as there were a few things noteworthy lately I figured it’s time to do an update blog now.

Updated incinerate() 

By Devin Olson | 2/28/18 4:15 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

Back in August of 2013 I originally posted Nate and Tim's Excellent Recycle. Granted, if you are coding in XPages the OpenNTF Domino API has pretty much made the need for this method irrelevant (as the ODA's first goal is to eliminate the "ham-fisted Exception handling in the lotus.domino API"). HOWEVER, if you are doing non-XPages Domino Java code then this recycle method is still relevant.

[Notes 9.0.1 FP10] - "Script contains errors. Would you like to save it anyway." #ibmchampion 

By Ulrich Krause | 2/24/18 11:16 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

When editing code in the LS editor, code will become corrupt. I was able to recreate the issue with applications that have been created years ago as well as new applications that were created using 901FP10. The error is reproducible by other customers, too.

Electron - Cross Platform Desktop Apps Made Easy (Q & A) #ibmchampion 

By Ulrich Krause | 2/19/18 4:23 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Oliver Busse

I got some very good feedback on the first 3 articles. So, thank you very much for kind words, critics and suggestions! Much appreciated. Also, I got a couple of questions. Instead of answering the questions offline, I thought it is a good idea to add a Q&A article to the tutorial. I will add more content as questions are coming in.

How to redirect an URL in Domino and break the Domino-server's attempt to append any URL-parameter like "?OpenDocument" to the target URL!! 

By Robert Ibsen Voith | 2/17/18 6:22 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

This is a story of something that I anticipated should take 5 minutes to fix. It turned out to take a couple of hours instead! Very briefly - using the redirect web site rules, Domino will transfer any URL parameters (like ?OpenDocument, ?OpenForm etc) from the source URL-pattern to the target URL. If the target URL doesn't like OpenDocument very well, this ends up in an "HTTP Web Server: Invalid URL Exception".

This is my 3rd session at IBM Think in Las Vegas in March. It’s not really a session, but rather an interactive panel where me and 2 of my IBM Champion colleagues will engage with the audience to discuss Notes and Domino in the context of client success stories.

In an earlier post I mentioned that I have been working on new technology projects since the end of last year and I wanted to share here what I’m doing as well as plan to keep you updated on my progress if only to keep pressure on myself.
