Speaking at BLUG 2013
Tue, Feb 12th 2013 2:30a   Chris Connor
Delighted to say that I am speaking at BLUG 2013. I will be presenting on one of my favourite subjects - building hybrid NSF / SQL applications with Java, XPages and the extension Library. It follows on from my last posting. I am hoping the work I do for this presentation will act as a springboard to start to produce the series of articles that I mentioned in my last blog. Will be great to attend my first BLUG - heard so much good stuff about it. Also looking forward catching up with all the [read] Keywords: xpages applications java sql

XPages Case Study Application - Procurement Tracking - A Hybrid NSF / SQL Application
Wed, Nov 21st 2012 4:48a   Chris Connor
A while back I raised a point regarding application design for an XPages application that one of my customers were considering. This was a procurement / contract tracking application that was to track spend / values over a annual periods etc (Not really the sort of application that is best suited to the NSF structure). However, we were keen to build on existing XPages resources and RAD benefits such as 1. Security driven by Groups and the ACL 2.

Once major concern though is the use of the . At the moment something strange occurs if you simply add it to the page - no content in the portlet is displayed on the screen!

Releational Database options for Reporting and Scaling / Performance with XPages and General Notes / Domino
Tue, May 22nd 2012 3:12a   Chris Connor
At the moment considering options for XPages application architecture for a customer. Forming options based around the need for building reports (traditionally a poor area in Lotus Notes). Client is very keen on the use of relational database access for this so that they can easily write queries to give them the reports the need with SQL / stored procedures or use standard "Reporting Tools" to access the structured data. Based on this I was considering evaluating 1. DomSQL - built for th [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes xpages application database oracle server sql xml

Plugin Development with Java UI Classes
Mon, May 21st 2012 7:34a   Chris Connor
Been working on an eclipse plugin which extends the right click menu. The idea is that it sends (creates) a bookmark type document in a central XPages "Knowledge base" database based upon the selected document. So the user right clicks to select a document and chooses the "Bookmark" option below Which provides this dialog The bookmark document contains simply 1. A subject describing the document 2.

XPages DataModels and Exporting to Excel
Fri, May 4th 2012 1:57a   Chris Connor
Been doing a lot of work in XPages around Exporting - so naturally built a Java Class to run as a managed bean to do this. It extends the widely documented concept of SSJS Agents in that a button redirects to a page which renders the content as Excel or whatever. So I thought - let the Excel class have different methods to do different things such as Export a view, a document collection and even the data used in a repeat control (essentially what is on screen). Package it up as an OSGI plugin [read] Keywords: xpages java openntf


Relational XPages access for Hybrid Application access

Reaching out to the community as I am looking to canvass opinion on the best options for a project I am considering. Preference of technology is XPages. This fits with my clients ambitions and skills although they have some experience in Spring MVC and Websphere Portal (options that I can help with too). Keen on the idea of a hybrid option with XPages. By that I mean NSF / Domino 1. Workflow support (using standard Java OSGI libraries we have developed) 2.

Writing a booking front end using the extension library - the UI works really well and supports browser events for creation, deletion, moving etc. The issue is "wrestling with free time". Not a lot of good information out there in terms of setting the various field values. In essence I am mailing a document to the room that is setup in the database.

Now that we have our 8.5.3 environments ready thoughts turn to how do we use XPages to build better applications with the new tools available. I have been involved in a few situations lately where organisations are reviewing their application estate and asking how do we approach "modernising" them.

Stephan Wissel raises and excellent point in his blog on what he thinks are options for the future of Domino and XPages with the inclusion of an in built relational data store. For many years now the NSF has been an excellent data structure but has had its known achillies heel which often led to poor performing applications or applications that did not scale. This led to issues around complex architectures, archiving, poor reporting outputs. For years we have asked the question "Will this work [read] Keywords: domino xpages application applications archiving community development eclipse integration java server
