First look - exporting Notes mail to MBOX format
Tue, Apr 26th 2016 4:55p   Ben Langhinrichs
One line to export a Notes mail database to MBOX format with the high fidelity rendering engine in CoexLinks Fidelity, one of various formats supported. This feature will be available in CoexLinks Fidelity V4, due out shortly and a free upgrade to anyone currently on a maintenance plan. The best rendering in the business, and you can make it part of your business. We are open to arrangements with business partners who want to use this as part of migration and archiving products or services. You

First Look - retrieving Domino data including rich text in JSON
Fri, Apr 22nd 2016 12:39p   Ben Langhinrichs
A first look at how you will be able to retrieve Domino data in a myriad of formats, but in this case in JSON. This is a simple demo of an HTML page that retrieves Notes data including rich text and uses it on the page. In this case, it retrieves JSON, but can also retrieve CSV data, HTML, EPUB, MHT and EML from a view, document or field, all using the high fidelity rendering and advanced data mining features of the AppsFidelity Render engine. You can try AppsFidelity for yourself by requesting

Improving XPages rendering in five lines
Wed, Apr 13th 2016 11:19a   Ben Langhinrichs
A customer wanted to know what it would take to enhance an XPages template with AppsFidelity so that the rich text content looked better on the web but also in Notes. They have lots of apps built on this same template. (I have changed one small point about the request to make it more generic.) The answer in this case was, it would take five lines. Not code, but lines in the NOTES.INI on the servers where the apps lived. 1) A line to load AppsFidelity into a 32 bit Domino system (the appropri

Slides and samples for EntwicklerCamp 2016

I gave two sessions at EntwicklerCamp 2016, and have created a page with slides for both and some of the samples (a couple more will be added later). http://geniisoft.com/db/EntwicklerCamp2016 The first session was "Turbocharge the Domino Engine - Don't Disturb the UI" which starts with a light discussion of software-vendor relationships and then moves into different types of C API extensions and how they can be used without extensive programming of C API knowledge. The second session was

Sharing links on FB - a meta-post
Wed, Apr 6th 2016 4:59p   Ben Langhinrichs
This is a somewhat meta post in that I am demonstrating what I am talking about. I have been annoyed for a while about how links shared on Facebook, both mine and others, often have generic titles or wonky images. I finally decided to do something about it, and thought I'd share so that if you have the same problem, maybe I'll save you a bit of effort. The key issue is meta tags (see what I did there?) and specifically Open Graph meta tags. Compute the correct og:image and Facebook won't go

Judge email fidelity for yourself
Tue, Apr 5th 2016 9:03a   Ben Langhinrichs
I know, I know. You've seen me post about high fidelity email before, but this is Notes, right? The email is supposed to look like crap something from the 1990s. Everybody knows that. But it can be different. If you want to see a few sample emails, fill out the form below and give it a try. Don't worry, we won't harass you or sell your email information. We'll just send you six emails rendered the way Domino does, and those six emails rendered the way CoexLinks Fidelity does. Read them on y

I will be presenting a couple of sessions at EntwcklerCamp on April 11‒13, and doing at least one sponsor session, but I'd also be happy to show CoexLinks Fidelity or any of our products to anyone who would like to see them up close and personal. The most popular right now is CoexLinks, especially given our soon-to-be-released addition of migration capabilities which can make a move to IBM Verse much better, but the data extraction features in the Midas LSX continue to be popular (and fun

Data mining with MD5 hash values
Thu, Mar 24th 2016 2:03p   Ben Langhinrichs
After the relatively simple data mining example I showed previously using the Midas LSX, I thought I'd show a more useful example. In this, I want to find duplicate file attachments, whether or not they have the same name. This could be tracking down how a particular attachment has been circulated, or simply finding out whether replies and replies to replies have duplicated the same attachment many times, wasting valuable space. This could obviously be done with any database, but I wanted to us

Data mining for random phrases
Tue, Mar 22nd 2016 9:41p   Ben Langhinrichs
Every few years, our Midas LSX evolves to take on new challenges. Sometimes, those are challenges that seem obvious, such as exporting Notes data to HTML or JSON with high fidelity. Sometime, though, the challenges are not so obvious. Over the past year, we have been evolving the data export features to allow data mining, or selective extraction. While I could show lots of details, I thought I'd write a few posts showing different sorts of data extraction. All are done with the Export to CSV sa

It is exciting to see my friends in the IBM Partner community sporting their spiffy new badges, especially Theo and Gab with "lifetime achievement" badges. But none for me. I'm not fishing for anything, or even sad. I'm not an ideal IBM partner. Sometimes, I show IBM up by making email look good when they cannot, or enabling functionality they have never seen fit to add. Sometimes, I am critical of their many shortcomings. Most of the time, I just don't play the game. So, why bring it up?
