Guys thanks for the great feedback on my session - the following link contains the presentation files for your information.

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

Mon, May 21st 2012 7:34a Chris Connor Been working on an eclipse plugin which extends the right click menu.

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.

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
