Long day yesterday travelling from Glasgow via Dublin to Orlando - pretty smooth to be honest. The "new" immigration process conducted in Dublin meant that when I landed it was straight through to pick up bags - almost like an internal flight!
Anyway "settled in" yesterday evening well. Great evening (although jet lag took its toll) I attempted to soldier on through to around midnight.
Looking forward to the announcements and sessions of the next few days. Will be doing last minute prep around my two sessions if you are interested in attending.
Wed 10:30 - 12:15 SHOW111 - How you deliver Mobile Applications the easy way with XPages and Web apps. Will walk you through how to build both a 100% web app with the extension library and a hybrid app with PhoneGap.
Thursday 8:30 - 9:30 BP118 - Using Java to build Applications Fit for the enterprise Will discuss and demonstrate how Java helps provide a scalable platform for developing your XPages applications.
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
getCurrentElement() null issue in Java UI Classes for Eclipse
Mon, May 21st 2012 10:57a Chris Connor Seems to be this behaviour is a "feature" of the product which may be fixed over time.

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. A Tag for the document (category) 3. A "Notes URL" link to take the user [read] Keywords: notes
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
Open Source / Free CMS and Commerce Engine
Wed, Apr 18th 2012 3:02a Chris Connor Firstly apologies for the silence - usual consultant thing of being very busy hence no time - that is no excuse though... Been doing a lot of varied work recently on top of the usual XPages stuff. WebSphere Portal, Spring / Hibernate, Spring MVC stuff. Hope to incorporate that into this blog soon. Anyway... Thought I would throw out a request to see if anyone could recommend or point towards a free open source CMS / shopping cart type application - preferably built on the Java platform [read] Keywords: xpages application
