Auto-width Bootstrap Column XPages Controls 

By Cameron Gregor | 3/21/17 10:26 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

I’ve been stuck working with OneUI Version 3 for the past couple of years, due to a regretful decision made at the beginning of my major project. OneUI was better than nothing but very frustrating at times. Finally, I have moved on to my next project and I am now using bootstrap (version 3)

What to expect in upcoming SmartNSF Beta 3 release? 

By Martin Jinoch | 3/20/17 9:19 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

We've decided to rename strategies to make the names shorter, yet still descriptive enough. We've basically removed all SELECT_ and ALL_ parts of the names. For example SELECT_ALL_DOCUMENTS_FROM_VIEW is from now on DOCUMENTS_FROM_VIEW. Extending the life of your keyboard is just a positive side effect of this change.

Post FP8 install - Does anybody know where the Xpages "Mobile" controls palette has gone? 

By Robert Ibsen Voith | 3/16/17 4:59 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

After installing the latest and greatest FP8, I realized that the Extension Library shifted a lot of components from ExtLibX into the ExtLib. One thing I can’t seem to find any more is the “Mobile controls” – which contained the “Single Page Application” wizard amongst other things. [SEE THE COMMENT]

Swiper FP8 Version Beta Release 

By Cameron Gregor | 3/16/17 2:30 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Last week I released the ‘alpha’ version of Swiper which was untested on FP8 but presumed to be ok. So far I have only had good reports from the pioneers who have gone ahead and installed FP8 + the alpha version. I have since managed to ugrade my home office setup to FP8 which unfortunately has broken my ability to launch designer from eclipse but I am seeking some advice on fixing this up.

Re: Domino REST performance analysis 

By Martin Jinoch | 3/15/17 3:31 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Csaba Kiss has published blogpost http://xpagexplorer.org/domino-rest-performance-analysis/ about his findings regarding performance of various REST technologies available on Domino now.

OpenAPI Specifications for Freebusy and Calendar available on OpenNTF's Github account and SmartNSF Beta 2 released 

By OpenNTF | 3/14/17 5:31 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

The application development landscape of today's world is completely upside-down. While in the past a platform has to integrate all and should consume open standards, in today's world a platform should be capable of being integrated everywhere and providing open standards. This shift is a logical consequence of the new paradigms of microservices and microservice-oriented architecture.

Domino REST performance analysis 

By Csaba Kiss | 3/14/17 3:26 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

In this blog post, I have tested various REST services that are available in Domino including DAS, viewJsonService, customRestService, SmartNSF. My conclusion is that Domino REST services are woefully slow.

‘F’ is for Feature 

By Martin Donnelly | 3/9/17 7:32 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

In order to ship new features IBM must often extend its backend classes to provide new APIs. I recognise a lot of the APIs called out in this screenshot because they are mostly the new ones added in FP8 to give you the capability of decrypting and encrypting documents.

Feature Packs Are Here 

By Martin Donnelly | 3/8/17 12:01 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Feature Pack 8 for IBM Notes/Domino has finally arrived and brings with it a slew of goodies for the Domino developer. From an XPages perspective alone, FP8 is loaded with the aggregation of all XPages Extension Library releases since 9.0.1 GA – that’s a total of 17 releases all rolled into FP8!

Swiper FP8 Integration Rollout 

By Cameron Gregor | 3/8/17 9:18 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Notes Domino 9.0.1 FP8 is finally here and as far as I know (I have yet to download it) it includes the necessary changes which will allow Swiper to swipe whatever it wants, whenever it wants, which is good news for people who don’t like to have ‘Build Automatically’ turned on.

Domin & REST: Debug your Plugin 

By Sven Hasselbach | 3/7/17 11:05 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

When developing OSGi Plugins, you should have your own development server running on your local machine. Not only because of the faster deployment of changes (a new version of a plugin must always deployed with a HTTP restart), but because of the Java debugging posibilities: Only one Eclipse instance can connect to the JVM, and every request processed by the server will start the debugger.

IBM Connect - Domino Application Development Review 

By Paul Withers | 3/5/17 5:50 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

This time last year, the message about Domino application development was very straightforward. Domino 9.0.2 was slated for Q4 2016, with the expectation that this would include open sourcing of not only XPages Extension Library components, but all XPages components.

Markdown XPages UIControl – Cameron Gregor 

By Cameron Gregor | 3/5/17 8:37 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Often when I’m designing an xpage, there might be a section of the page in which I want to explain some instructions to the user. Some options here are to: write the Instructions using html and embed directly in the xpage markup write the Instructions directly in the design pane and format using designer’s ui e.g. bold, color, size etc

My take on IBM Connect 2017 

By Frank van der Linden | 2/27/17 12:49 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

IBM Connect went to the west coast of the USA, to the famous Moscone Center in the middle of San Francisco. Last week I have attended and spoken at IBM Connect. Here are some thoughts about the event.

The State of Domino App Dev Post-Connect-2017 

By Jesse Gallagher | 2/24/17 11:07 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

I'm en route back from this year's IBM Connect in San Francisco, and this plane ride is giving me a good chance to chew over the implications for Domino developers. First off, I'll put my bias in this matter right up front: Darwino, which I've been working on and discussing quite a bit, is one of the three "chosen" vendors for app enhancement/modernization/what-have-you.
