XPages: The Best of Times,The Worst of Times
Wed, Apr 23rd 2014 7:16p   David Leedy
If you’re reading this you probably already know that I like working with XPages. It’s a great tool that lets me provide business solutions to my company in a timely manner. There’s also a really really good community behind it. A lot of great people sharing wonderful information these days and I’m happy to try and contribute a little bit to it. But I think the XPages community has suffered a big  loss lately and I thought it was worth mentioning. Recently, at least 3 KEY IBMers have mo [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes xpages community java javascript mobile openntf profile social software wiki

In this show it’s back to XPages and demos!  I will do a quick recap on the last show as 141 seemed REALLY popular but then it’s back to work.  In this show I demo a quick tip on how you can use CLIENT SIDE JavaScript to show the user the server is processing.

I’ll admit I was a little nervous about the last show.  It’s been a long time since I got a little “Rowdy” on the show.  Maybe too long. First I want to thank everyone for all the feedback via comments, Twitter, Facebook, etc.  I think this is the first NotesIn9 that someone (Russ Maher) actually live tweeted while watching. Thanks for the kind feedback to my kids as well.  We all had a good time making the show.  Though I am worried they might actually want to Union [read] Keywords: domino xpages community facebook sharepoint twitter

NotesIn9 141: Java vs JavaScript Throwdown
Mon, Mar 31st 2014 3:48p   David Leedy
This is a VERY DIFFERENT NotesIn9.  It’s less of a normal show and more if a response to a recent blog post regarding one persons opinion on the value of Java in XPages and the Value of the UI vs the backend. Actually this show is more of a really long “rant”. This show could absolutely suck.  I pretty much broke all my rules and tried to have fun with it.  I do give my thoughts on things so maybe there’s at least a little value there. There’s no Demo.  There is [read] Keywords: xpages java javascript

Mon, Mar 24th 2014 6:23a   David Leedy
In this episode Paul Withers comes back on the show for a deeper look at using SourceTree and Git Flow. This comes from the session he did with Declan Lynch at IBM Connect.  In that session they ran out of time so this should fill in some of the missing pieces that they didn’t get to cover. I use SourceTree and HG Flow which is the Mercurial version of Git Flow in my Day Job all the time.  While there are some quirks due to Designer and you do need to be careful and understand what̵ [read] Keywords: ibm notes iphone

NotesIn9 138: XPages Combobox Improvements
Thu, Mar 13th 2014 1:12p   David Leedy
In this show I take a look at using a Combobox inside XPages.  I’m going to demo how to use Java – but it’s NOT scary Java – I show you everything. We’re going to show the user a pretty value in the combobox but get a hold of and store the key value for our use. I’m also going to show how you can create categories inside the combobox. That’s kinda cool I think depending on your situation. [read] Keywords: xpages java

Fri, Jan 17th 2014 11:50a   David Leedy
Ok enough Java.  We need something that even Marky Roden might like! In this show Tim Tripcony returns to end out “Tim Tripcony week” on NotesIn9.  He’l give a demo on how you can start using Bootstrap 3 and Font Awesome with your XPages applications.  He’ll do so by using themes and a content delivery network.

Tim Tripcony returns again for another great show in his Java series.  Today he’ll be introducing the concept of a “MimeBean”.  A “MimeBean” gives the ability to save Java Objects inside a notes field.  It opens up many new possibilities for storing data in your applications.

Mon, Jan 13th 2014 1:11p   David Leedy
In this show, Tim Tripcony expounds on the last episode where I did a very basic CRUD example that’s based on Java binding rather then document binding. I had mentioned one of the problems with building the java classes was that I would create getters and setters for each field. Tim’s going to show how you can build your code to avoid that. He also improves the CRUD example with a little BootStrap Magic! Tim will return for Part 3 tomorrow!! [read] Keywords: xpages java

Recently Niklas Heidloff posted a lot of sessions related to XPages /IBM Domino application Development. There are Thirty-Six (36) sessions listed.  The majority appear to me to be directly related to XPages itself. There’s simply a TON of great XPages content at the conference and there will be lot of great IBMers from the XPages team attending.

So for the last several weeks I’ve been teasing on Twitter “.25″ and “1/4″.  I’m excited to now reveal what the heck I was talking about. NotesIn9 has now reached 1/4 of a MILLION downloads! I think saying “1/4 of a Million” just sounds way cooler then 250,000. Anyway – as always thanks to all the great contributors that have given their time to help the show!!

Ok.  There’s a lot going on in this show so let’s get started: This show came from a Skype Chat I had with Tim Tripcony.  The goal here is a series that focuses on how you actually use xpages and java beans together.  We want to show how to bind to Java Objects instead of documents and actually use them.  This is not a full “app” but more of a CRUD example.  We didn’t want to distract too much from the core concept of linking XPages to Java Beans directly.

This week I found out that for the 3rd time I was selected to the IBM Champion program. I just want to say thanks to those who nominated me.  I’m glad you like the contributions I’ve helped to create.  I also want to thank IBM for their efforts in this program. A bunch of new Champions were added and I was especially happy to see my good friend, Marky Roden make the list.  He’s the text book definition of a Champion.

In previous NotesIn9′s I’ve talked about using Source Control inside Domino Designer.  Well today it all changes! Whatever I said before..  forget it!

Assuming I do attend I’m 99% sure I will not be submitting any abstracts*. I’ve yet to officially ask at my “Day Job”.

jQuery Mobile Seems incompatible with XPages in Domino 9.0
Sat, Apr 20th 2013 3:17p   David Leedy
So it’s no secret that I’m doing a lot of XPages Web Development for iPads and I have a complete love – hate relationship with XPages Mobile controls.  In some ways they’re great.  In some ways they are not so great at all.  Not all of that is XPages fault – though some is – but some of the problem is in the Dojo that drives the mobile controls. So I really want to abandon Mobile Controls, if nothing else the whole single page App is just really really hard [read] Keywords: domino xpages css development dojo mobile twitter

NotesIn9 108: XPages Mobile Controls Problem and Solution
Thu, Apr 18th 2013 12:41p   David Leedy
This is a rush show.  I didn’t mean to make this show at this time, but it looks like I solved a problem that has been frustrating me for a while so I had to take a quick break and document it and get this out. The problem is with trying to do a refresh in the onChange event of an edit control in the confines of XPages Mobile Controls.  I’ve done this before in a production app, but recently I tried making a new version of that app, starting from scratch, and I couldn’t get t [read] Keywords: xpages mobile

Mon, Apr 8th 2013 7:55a   David Leedy
In this show Jesse Gallagher, a great new contribitor, comes on to give us an over view of using Java Controller Classes to help seperate your business logic from your XPage.  By moving your logic outside of the XPage you get much cleaner XML source for your XPage. If you’re new to the thought of using Java inside XPages, I’d suggest don’t focus on the actual syntax that Jesse’s using here but the overal concepts.  This is very similar to using Lotusscript custom classe [read] Keywords: lotusscript xpages java xml
