A Note About Installing the OpenNTF API RC2 Release

By Jesse Gallagher | 3 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

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:

Announcing the NotesIn9 Hackathon: Race to 199

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

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.

Bower4XPages

By Frank van der Linden | 2 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Yesterday I read the blog post by Keith Strickland about CSJS Workflow, where he mentioned Bower. I heard the name frequently when I was exploring the modern web development frameworks, like AngularJS and NodeJS. So I started to investigate, what is Bower and how it can help me by managing the frameworks in my (XPages) projects.

Caching in XPages – not as straightforward as you would believe

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

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”.

Creating an easy XPage keyword bean

By Fredrik Norling | 4 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Flexibility in applications is always a great thing, to adapt the application to the business needs without recoding things. And if adding this flexibility can be done without lots of code, you will probably use it. This is one way of creating a keyword data bean for you XPages.

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

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

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.

Emoticons in Domino FP1 and FP2

By Oliver Busse | 7 days ago | - | Added by

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.

Free Software – Password Reset for Notes/Domino

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

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.

Java based Debug Control - the blog post to my NotesIn9 series

Today I am really happy to present my first NotesIn9 video! It was really great being able to make this sub-series and be a part of the tutorials that really got me going with XPage development. I want to thank David Leedy for giving me the opportunity as well as thank my employer for allowing me to use what I learn on company time to create content for others. This is turning out to be a hobby that is really starting to take off.

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

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.

Maximum file upload size in Domino all the places to edit

By Fredrik Norling | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

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. I was increasing this on a server this week and missed one of the places and couldn’t understand where I missed, Per-Henrik Lausten pointed me what I missed. So I though I would write a post about this I might help someone else, or help me the next time I forget.

Mini Patterns for XPages: Using Beans for Parent - Child Documents

Today I'd like to introduce a simple pattern which I have been using in a couple of applications. This is also an example how you get benefits from Managed Beans for specific purposes. Let's start.

Rethinking the MimeDocument data source

By Stephan Wissel | 1 month ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Tim (we miss you) and Jesse had the idea to store beans in Mime documents, which became an OpenNTF project. I love that idea and was musing how to make it more "domino like". In its binary format, a serialized bean can't be used for showing view data, nor can one be sure that it can be transported or deserialized other than through the same class version as the creator (this is why Serialized wants to have a serialid.

Select themeIds from plugins in Designer Xsp Properties Editor

By Cameron Gregor | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

A couple of months back I did a blog post demonstrating how you could modify the source code of the extension library designer tooling, to allow your own plugins to make contributions to the Theme selection drop-down. I also posted a feature request to the Extension Library Project on OpenNTF, I quickly got a response from Gary Marjoram that they were already thinking about this and to keep a lookout for future releases. Well the IBM team have just released Release 9 (R09) of the 9.0.1 Extension library and I am happy to see Gary has included his fix for this in this release.
