A Brief Intro to Nginx - liberating your DDE local web preview

By Eric McCormick | 6 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

This is a brief intro to nginx, the reverse proxying web server I’ve fallen in love with every time I’ve used it. I’m by far not the first person to blog on the subject, but this may be a good starting point for some people.

A smallish problem installing JVMPatch_SR16FP3_W64_901.3_Server

By Ulrich Krause | 5 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

I recently ran into an issue, where my Java SQL and LDAP connectors stopped working after applying FP3 to Domino 9.0.1 / 64Bit. Thanks to the help of the community, I was pointed to an already existing fix for this issue. IBM had released an JVM patch . I downloaded the patch and tried to install it by simply double-clicking the downloaded file.

Adding Themes to XPages Dojo Charts

By Paul Withers | 1 month ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Since I first blogged about Dojo charting in XPages in 2009, quite a lot has changed with Dojo. Much of what I did then is still valid, including the additional JavaScript file I created at Lotusphere 2011 and contributed to OpenNTF for making the chart legend multi-column and allowing styling on it. However, when trying to add a different theme last week, I found the code I have used previously didn’t work.

Apply Java Permissions to Domino Agents at runtime - again ;-)

By Michael Ruhnau | 2 weeks ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

This post is supposed to be read by developers only. Admins, please move on ;-) I have an agent which is used to make SFTP file transfers from Domino to our corporate SAP system. It's an interesting project and I am exploring new stuff on a daily basis :-)

Bluemix Java Developers: Your life just got a little easier!

By Ryan Baxter | 4 weeks ago | App Dev - Bluemix | Added by

This week I got around to open sourcing a project I have been working and using for a little while. The project is called Bluemix Cloud Connectors. The libraries in this project are meant to make accessing credentials bound to your Java apps in Bluemix a little easier.

Develop local, deploy (cloud) global - Java and CouchDB

By Stephan Wissel | 4 weeks ago | App Dev - Bluemix | Added by

Leaving the cosy world of Domino Designer behind, venturing into IBM Bluemix, Java and Cloudant, I'm challenged with a new set of task to master. Spoiled by Notes where Ctrl+O gives you instant access to any application, regardless of being stored locally or on a server I struggled a little with my usual practise of develop local, deploy (Bluemix) global

Domino 9.0.1 FP3 IF3 is about to ship

By Daniel Nashed | 2 hours ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

The SPR list for the fix is already public and the IF will contain a couple of important fixes and new TLS 1.2 support including new ciphers. Enclosed you find the current list. The information about how to enable those new ciphers are not yet released. I post information about those new settings and will comment on them as soon they are released.

Domino Start Script systemd Support

By Daniel Nashed | 3 weeks ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

Domino 9.0.1 FP3 IF1 also supports SLES12. So it is time to finish my work on systemd support which is the new service model used in RHEL7 and SLES12. Enclosed you find the current description of the changes in the start script for systemd support. Some parts really need to change to support the new model. But I am keeping the concept that rc_domino is the main entry point for all your operations.

Easily Secure Your Bluemix Apps With Auth0

By Ryan Baxter | 4 weeks ago | App Dev - Bluemix | Added by

A topic that often comes up when I speak to other developers building apps on Bluemix is authentication. Many developers are comfortable with securing their apps in traditional development models. In the cloud, authentication is often slightly different. For example, you must store session data in an external data store instead of relying on what the app container provides.

Eclipse (DDE) shortcuts: F4 – Class Hierarchy

By Mark Roden | 2 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

As I start to learn Java I am going to document some of the shortcuts I find and / or people show me (more likely)- very helpful.

Gridx in XPages – 32: Editable Cell Widgets

By Brad Balassaitis | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

In the last couple of posts in this series, I showed how to edit data inline and save the changes. But you’re not limited to plain text fields. In this post, I’ll show how to make cells editable with additional input widgets.

Gridx in XPages – 33: Adding a Column Header Menu

By Brad Balassaitis | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Another handy feature that you can add to Gridx is a popup menu from the column headers. In this post, I’ll show how to build a menu and add it to the grid. As always, you have to include the required gridx module (gridx.modules.HeaderMenu) and add it to the grid object’s modules list.Create a new dijit.Menu object to build the menu. You don’t need to add any resources to the page.

Handling Data in a Servlet

By Eric McCormick | 1 week ago | App Dev - Web | Added by

As promised at the end of the last post (in this series), this post will walk through the entire life cycle of data reception and response handling. This is where my ConnectED demo app-that-never-was comes in, we’re going to build part of it.

IBM Notes User Management: Part One

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

User management addresses application access and access levels by multiple classes of users. Classes include end-users, managers, administrators, testers, and developers. A robust user management policy will address adding and removing users, maintaining distribution lists and granting or denying rights to users.

IBM Notes User Management: Part Two

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

In our previous blog post we covered the first phase of a user’s existence as an entity within your environment: user creation. Here, we’ll break down the other two phases: user management and user deletion. During an IBM Notes user’s lifecycle, the user may move between business units, locations or job functions.

IBM Verse – Features I would like to see

By Karl-Henry Martinsson | 2 weeks ago | Business - Social Business | Added by

I have been testing IBM Verse Preview a little now, and I have compiled a list of some features I would like to see implemented. I have not included things in the UI (User Interface), because it is clear that part is still being polished/developed, and have some ways to go. I am going to focus on actual functionality, the UI items I will wait with until we are closer to the official March 31 launch date.

IBM announce dates for bringing TLS v. 1.2 to IBM Domino

By Mikkel Heisterberg | 2 weeks ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

So in October of 2014 I wrote about the upcoming TLS (transport layer security) enhancements that IBM was planning to bring to IBM Domino as part of the industry wide panic about the POODLE attack which I still consider mainly theoretical. I was a bit critical towards IBM as they chose to patch their seriously lacking SSL v. 1.3 implementation and implement TLS v. 1.0 on top of IBM Domino v. 9.0.x (IBM Domino, POODLE, SHA-1 and why it's also sad when IBM decides to update the security stack).

IBM dropped the ball on IBM Verse

By Karl-Henry Martinsson | 2 weeks ago | Business - Social Business | Added by

At IBM ConnectED in January IBM promised that all attendees would get early access to the next generation web-based email presented at the conference, IBM Verse. Jeff Schick initially promised it for february, but after several emails where the attendees were offered to sign up, it got very very quiet.

IBMSBT in XPages: Custom Business Cards

In this article I will introduce the JavaScript API for Social Business Toolkit and show how to make a simple custom vCard using the jQuery hovercard.js plugin. When you are modifying on premises Connections there is an API interface provided and described by IBM for integration of the Profiles Business Card.

IBMSBT in XPages: Getting set up with a Social Business Toolkit (Part #1)

By Mark Roden | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

In this article I will begin to introduce IBM Social Business Toolkit (SBT), provide links on how to get it set up, talk briefly about how it works and then provide my first demo on how to get “My Files”.

IBMSBT in XPages: Getting set up with a Social Business Toolkit (Part #2)

By Mark Roden | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

In this article I will show how to connect to Connections Cloud and in turn how to use the Java API to display “My Files” on an XPage using a simple XPages repeat control.

IBMSBT in XPages: My Communities

By Mark Roden | 2 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

In this article I will describe how to display a list of “My Communities” in an XPage. To do this I will have to create an ArrayList of communities and use a repeat control in an XPage to display them. As I showed in this previous blog post there were some interesting issues in setting up the managed beans for getting the communities out of connections/smartcloud.

If your user want reports in Excel you should read this

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

XPages did get a great addon more than a year ago to be more exact 13:th of September 2013. It was when Christian Güdemann uploaded the first version of POI for XPages. Apache POI is a rather old apache project, 13 years to be exact. And there have even been a Notes in 9 show by Paul Calhoun on how to use the standalone version of Apache POI.

Interlude for Servlets

By Eric McCormick | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by

My series on servlets is in a temporary interlude. Don’t worry, I’ve been working on it, the only problem is the issue I ran into. I was forced to re-evaluate some of the assumptions I had made previously and, to be quite honest, I’m glad I ran into that issue now, as opposed to much later. Suffice it to say, there is much more to come and I am excited to bring my next post, but I won’t publish it again until it’s ready.

Is Verse a new way to work?

By Volker Weber | 1 week ago | Business - Social Business | Added by

I applaud IBM for trying a new and fresh start with email. Ever since they have shown first ideas at Connect 2013 I was hooked. Everybody has his own pattern how to deal with email. Some people leave everything in the inbox and use the unread indicator to form a todo list. Others file everything in dozens of folders. Can they change their ways?
