A fix for dijit comboboxes in iOS8

By Troy Reimer | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

iOS8 poses a problem for XPages applications using dojo dijits. I need to be able to fix this issue for Domino 9.0.1FP2 which has dojo 1.9.2. After a bit of pain and suffering, I believe that I have a solution and I wanted to share it with the community.

Angular playground: applying an infinitescroll for Domino Access Services

By Patrick Kwinten | 4 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Inspired by a serie of blogposts from Marky Roden and popularity in the web dev community I decided to step (once again) from the XPages path (a trend?) and feed my curiosity on AngularJS. An excellent stepping stone is the example database provided by Marky and the AngularJS Fundamentals In 60-ish Minutes presentation by Dan Wahlin.

I've worked in IBM Collaboration Solutions / Lotus, for more than 15 years. Next month I'll start working for another team in IBM, called Emerging Technologies as a Bluemix advocate. I'm very excited and look forward to the new opportunity! I've really enjoyed working for ICS / Lotus over the last years. I love collaborative and social technology where you can immediately see the value for customers. I also love app dev to help customers and partners to build their own apps and extend our products. ICS has given me the chance to work on these topics, e.g. Lotus Workflow, reinventing EMail, Notes, Composite Applications, XPages and Connections App Dev. The thing I enjoyed most in ICS though are the people. I had the pleasure to work with so many talented developers, tech leads and managers and nice people. The good thing nowadays is that social software helps to stay connected.

Domino SSL Fixes Coming: "Dis is good!"

By Russell Maher | 2 weeks ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

As Nicolas Cages tells Cher in Moonstruck when he's eating the steak she cooked for him... "'Dis is good." IBM released two technotes today regarding SSL and Domino. I do wish this would have happened sooner but I can tell you from a lot of life experience that "late" is truly better than "never." Domino peeps will be able to support TLS 1.0 and disable SSLv3 support (to protect themselves from POODLE without a proxy server) AND support for SHA2 SSL/TLS certificates is also coming. If you want to get to TLS1.2, you'll still need to proxy your Domino server but this is still a very good, very welcome announcement!

Getting the Client IP in an IBM Domino Web App Behind an Apache Reverse Proxy

By Martin Leyrer | 2 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

Running a Domino based web application behind a reverse proxy (as I am doing for quite some time now) is the latest craze (due to the SSL issues in the current Domino SSL stack). Sean Cull has instructions for configuring Apache, Jesse Gallagher for ngix. There is one issue unsolved though in Seans configuration w(that Jesse solved for ngix). The field "Remote_Addr" in the web application will, due to Apache acting as a reverse proxy, not contain the IP of the client calling the app any more. Which can be an issue, if you need that information in your app. The Domino Blog for example can't block clients based on their IP any more.

How to use TLS and SHA-2 certificates in Domino Web Service Consumer

By Sasa Brkic | 1 week ago | App Dev - Web | Added by

We have a solution that is used by thousands of public sector workers. The solution relies heavily on interacting with various web services provided by the tax authority, social welfare and health authorities and others. So we have a lots of Domino web service consumers and providers that require both SSL and authentication using certificates. Like many others we were aware of Domino's lack of support for TLS and SHA-2, but the web services providers were not insisting on them, so everything worked fine. Until last Friday, when one after the other turned off support for SSL v3. We could just watch as all our consumers stopped working. Despite the recent technotes (1418982 and 1687167) stating that the fix will be available in "the next several weeks", we needed a working solution immediately. We are familiar and have been using reverse proxies before. But it didn't seem they could be used in our case. A reverse proxy is often positioned in front of a server (provider), but in this case our Domino servers were clients (consumers). But, it turns out that you actually can use reverse proxy even in this use case.
