By John Dalsgaard | 1 day ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

I tried to figure out how to correctly login and logout of Domino from an Ajax service that I call from a mobile app. Well, to be more specific I actually had login working fine – but logout just wouldn’t do it correctly…. The way I saw this was by issuing the following command on the Domino server console: tell http show users But now, let’s step a little back and let me explain what I do.

Angular playground: applying an infinitescroll for Domino Access Services

By Patrick Kwinten | 3 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

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.

When using Apache in front of Domino you need the NE rewrite attribute

By Sean Cull | 1 week ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Per Henrik Lausten

Over the last week or so I have been moving to using an Apache server in front of my Domino servers. This has been working really well until I had a problem with Mark Leusink’s Auto Login’s module. The solution is to use the NE attribute in the rewrite rules.

Tuning your XPages…

By John Dalsgaard | 2 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Ok this may promise a little more than I can hold. However, I just wanted to point the attention to some good advice that I had from Tony McGuckin (co-author of Mastering XPages) at IBM Connect 2014 in Orlando. This piece of advice surfaced through a review of a large application that I was building – and whether the architecture would “hold water” should the application become very popular.

XSP Libraries

By Toby Samples | 3 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Since version 8.5.2, Domino Developers have an amazing tool that I feel has been underused due to the massive mindset shift of developing Domino Apps to developing Java Apps. The Domino Server now has the capability of consuming OSGi Libraries. These libraries can provide any amount of Java Code and provide it to all the apps on your server or domain via replication. Part of the complexity has to do with the way these libraries created and deployed.
