APNs Certificate used for Traveler Expires 

By John Oldenburger | 3/21/19 4:44 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

As mentioned before the APNs certificate implemented in IBM Notes Traveler expires on March 30. Apple Push Notification Service, commonly referred to as Apple Notification Service or APNS, is a platform service created by Apple Inc. that enables third party application developers to send push notifications to iOS users. After March 30 the Push Notifications for Apple iOS devices will no longer work with the current certificate for Notes Traveler The only solution is to upgrade to Notes Traveler 10.0 or 10.0.1 to get the current APNs certificate

APNs Certificate used for Traveler Expires soon! 

By Milan Matejic | 3/14/19 11:48 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

The APNs certificate implemented in IBM Notes Traveler,will expire on 30th March and therefore the Push Notifications for Apple iOS devices will not be possible with the "default" certificate. The easiest way to make sure that the Push Notifications functions properly is to update your Traveler Server to or newer release.

By Jesse Gallagher | 2/25/19 12:20 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Since 9.0.1 FP 10, and including V10 because it's largely identical for this purpose, I've encountered and seen others encountering a couple strange problems with compiling XPages projects. This is a perfect opporunity for me to spin a tale about the undergirding frameworks, but I'll start out with the immediate symptoms and their fixes.

Anatomy of a Clean Open-Source Project 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/18/19 8:06 PM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by

Over the years, initially thanks to Peter Tanner's diligent work as the OpenNTF IP Manager and now my own occupation of that seat, I've learned to really appreciate the virtues of dotting your "i"s and crossing your "t"s when it comes to making an open-source project legally clean and clear.

Last year there was a DNUG conference in Darmstadt, in my own backyard, but I never officially heard about it. It presented an opportunity for the HCL team to meet me.

Domino V11 And XPages 

By John Oldenburger | 3/5/19 4:53 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

Some time ago I wrote two blog posts about the future of XPages, XPages as a Development Platform is Dead! and Update XPages as a Development Platform is Dead! Up to now there has been no news from HCL or IBM about the future of XPages and the will to invest in XPages in the coming years. The only thing indicated by HCL is that XPages will be supported in Domino V10 and beyond.

Domino, Proton, IAM, OAuth - Part 3: Certs & Keys 

By Oliver Busse | 2/20/19 10:42 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by

This is the most critical part in the whole process. If you make errors here everything will fail in the upcoming steps. Please download the kyrtool from IBM’s website first and copy the kyrtool file from the linux64 folder to /opt/ibm/domino/notes/lates/linux. You will need kyrtool to create the certificates. To use Proton with SSL you need certificates.

You will also setup the IAM service app that has to run in order to setup your apps with OAuth, LDAP and the authentication via OAuth.

By Andrew Magerman | 3/1/19 6:54 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by

The HCL Team, lead by Richard Jefts, was kind enough to invite me to its second Factory Tour, this time in Europe, in the HCL offices in Milan, in Italy. Milan is just a 3.5 hour trip in the train from Zürich, going through the new Gotthard tunnel, so it was an almost leisurely travel, compared to the trip to Boston last year.

HCL Factory Tour Episode 2 

By Paul Withers | 3/1/19 5:17 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by

This week I’ve spent a hugely beneficial amount of time at the HCL Factory Tour Episode 2. As with the previous factory tour, the ability to get quality time with key individuals from HCL and IBM, as well as not only hear but feed back on progress is invaluable. Before going I’d also intended to use the conference to crystalise my focuses for Engage. And obviously it was a great opportunity to have influential discussions regarding OpenNTF and open source, discussions that would normally have happened at IBM Think.

Today is the day after I returned home from three intense days at the HCL factory tour in Milano, Italy. I wanted to blog a lot earlier about the event but did not find the time due to the jam packed content-filled and socially busy days and evenings. First and foremost - HCL did a great job in letting us look under the covers of what they have planned and are planning on doing.

IBM mail support for MS Outlook (IMSMO) is a tool that allows MS Outlook users to synchronize mail, calendar with Domino server. This is not a new tool, but with Domino 10 it has undergone some configuration changes, especially on the server side.

Implementing Cluster Replication From Domino to Darwino 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/19/19 10:30 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

Since its inception, Darwino has had two-way replication between it and Domino, and it's evolved over the years in fidelity and configurability. Recently, I was able to check an item off the to-do list that I've wanted for a while: "cluster-style" replication from Domino, where a document change immediately kicks off replication to Darwino.

Java With Domino After XPages 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/14/19 2:45 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

IBM and HCL held a webcast today to detail some plans for Notes/Domino V11. There were some interesting tidbits elaborating on things like the pub/sub support, and it'll be worth tracking down a recording of the event when it's available. What's important for this series, though, is that this event served as the long-promised "roadmap" announcement for XPages.
