2016 OpenNTF Board Elections 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 9/19/16 12:55 PM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by

I have registered myself as nominee for the position of Contributor Director for the OpenNTF board. There are 3 positions for 4 candidates so the changes are high I would say. I have found OpenNTF always the main spot to learn and be informed about ICS solutions so I hope to learn more via this membership and share it with others!

9.0.1 FP7 and how to enable the new port encryption settings 

By Darren Duke | 9/14/16 10:18 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

9.0.1 FP7 has shipped. It's not all we hoped (only three new features, and no Java 8) but yet again the Domino security team has added stuff, this time the oft requested update to Notes client port encryption. But (at the time of writing) all the technotes on how to enable this either go to the wrong page (ICCA) or a nice looking, but still pointless 404 page.

A Conversation with Barry Rosen, at IBM: Part I 

By Bill Malchisky | 9/20/16 1:24 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by

During ICON UK 2016 in London, I took some time to talk with the IBM Offering Manager for ICS covering IBM Notes, Domino, Verse on Premises, and Sametime, Barry Rosen. Our initial Q&A turned into about a 30 minute dialogue, which I found quite informative. With his permission, I am posting the more interesting parts of our conversation.

Below is the completion of my interview with Barry Rosen, IBM Offering Manager for ICS. Enjoy! As indicated in the slide yesterday, the entire feature set of 9.0.2 will not be released into one Feature Pack (FP), but over four. Yes, the next four FPs will introduce what 9.0.2 would have offered.

A lot of things happened since Monday morning. It turned out I was not at all alone in thinking this. So there are some other posts on the subject, much better than my rant. And most importantly you can find Ed Brill's comment under Darren's post.

Adding @mention autocomplete like Facebook, Twitter & Google+ to your XPages app 

By Patrick Kwintensson | 9/14/16 9:31 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

For an application I was asked to add a feature to add commenting on main topics. In order to stimulate discussions it should be easy to include people in the stream, similar as in Twitter. So writing an @sign should invoke a type-ahead or auto-complete to a user-list and provide suggested users to address.

Adding icon columns to DataTables with FontAwesome 

By Michael G. Smith | 9/14/16 10:52 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

If you are modernizing a Notes/Domino application, chances are there are many underlying views that make use of column icons, which have always been one the great little features that users really loved about Notes. As Domino web apps became more prevalent, you could even create img tags that pointed to the icon source files on the server.

And the winner is...... HR Assistant - elstar IT

This is a screencast post about how to set up your development environment to use react.js library in your next “XPage” project. You might have read many blog post recently about the demise of XPages. It’s clear that IBM does not invest much in XPage development.

Change Is In The Air 

By Jesse Gallagher | 8/26/16 4:12 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

During last week’s MWLUG, there was a clear sense that things are a little different this year. Dave Navarre dubbed the technical implications “platform agnosticism”, while I geared my presentation towards the feeling that change is in the air.

Controlling the order of Script Resources (e.g. Jquery) with a Custom ViewRootRenderer 

By Cameron Gregor | 9/19/16 8:38 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

When loading Client Side Javascript libraries in XPages, sometimes the order that the libraries are ‘encoded’ (or written in HTML) in the <head> tag is important. For example jQuery and some of it’s plugins can have some issues if Dojo is encoded first.

Domino JNA vs. IBM Domino Java API 

By Ulrich Krause | 9/11/16 6:57 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by

Today, I finally found the time to take a closer look into the Domino JNA project. The project has been created by Karsten Lehmann, mindoo. The goal of the project is to provide low level API methods that can be used in Java to speed-up the retrival of data; especially, if you have to deal with lots of data, this can be a significant performance impact.

Domino meets RXJava 

By Stephan Wissel | 9/13/16 6:13 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

Verse on premises (VoP) is nearing its second beta release and fellow Notes experts are wondering if they need to install Apache Solr as part of the VoP deployment. There was a lengthy, high quality discussion and quite some effort evaluating alternatives. In conclusion it was decided to deliver the subset of Solr capabilities needed for VoP as series of OSGi plugins to the Domino server.

IBM Domino to be or not to be 

By Fredrik Norling | 8/29/16 3:21 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

The last week after MWLUG there has been numerous blog posts about Domino. No roadmap IBM is killing Domino, there is no future for Domino, IBM haven’t released any new releases since 9.01. That is not true at all, if we look at what has been released since 9.0.1 came to market. IBM Domino customers have received 6 fixpacks but they are not only fixpacks they are feature packs.

I am just back from a very impressive ICONUK. I can honestly say that it was the best LUG that I have been to. The best part for me was the informal discussions within the community. It is a time of change and the community discussions were real, interesting and honest.

This post follows in my tradition of extremely-narrow-use-case guides, but perhaps this will come in handy in some situations nonetheless. Specifically, a while back, I wrote a script that "Maven-izes" the XPages artifacts, as provided by IBM's Update Site for Build Management.

Quick Update 

By Niklas Heidloff | 9/1/16 6:05 AM | App Dev - Bluemix | Added by

Some people have asked why I haven’t blogged since June. Here is why … Almost two years ago I started to work for IBM Emerging Technologies. I wanted to work in this group for multiple reasons. One reason was because some of the people in that group worked as developer evangelists for Bluemix which is what I wanted to do as well.
