XPages quicktip: use the Calendar build in Months

Frank van der Linden    

blog_calendar  For a XPages application there was the need to set a Date to a certain date in Java, off course 😉

For this I always use the java.util.Calendar class, because it have some nice extra features.

The start is pretty straight forward, get an instance of the Calendar.

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();

Next is set the Calendar to a certain time. In the past when using the Date object, you could do it like Date date = new Date(“30-09-2015”)

The equivalent in Calendar looks like

cal.set(2015,9,30)

But the result is not the same, when you print the Calendar to the console you will notice that it will be set to 30 October 2015, huh….!!

Calendar months starts at 0 and not at 1 as you might expect.

This could  cause some strange issues. Let try this example

cal.set(2015,10,31)

The output will be 01 December 2015, because in November there is has no 31 days.

Solution

The Calendar has some nice build in fields. For every month there is a field, like JANUARY or SEPTEMBER

In my example above the code will looks like

cal.set(2015, Calendar.SEPTEMBER,30);

In the the console you will see the correct date, 30 September 2015

 

Happy coding

Quick tip: access the application log files on Bluemix
Wed, Nov 15th 2017 1:03p   Frank van der Linden
Last night when I deployed a new version of HR Assistant to Bluemix I ran in some troubles. When the application was deployed and tried to access it via de Application URL I got a 500 internal error. Find the log First step was to open the log page, but was not very explanatory. Next step was to open Kibana. There I found more information. As you can see, I need to consult the error-log-0.xml file for more information The challenge is where to find this log file. Solution I started, in my case

HR Assistant – Hello Domino….
Mon, Nov 13th 2017 7:03a   Frank van der Linden
While we developed HR Assistant it ran smoothly on a Domino server, but it was not using some strength of Domino, security. Run on Domino I made HR Assistant aware of the runtime it runs on, it ‘knows’ when it runs on Bluemix. If that is the case our own developed login features comes in place, but… When it runs on Domino it will enforce the ACL, which gave great advantages, by assign groups to the 3 roles of the application, HR, JobApplicant and Administrator. In the end you a

Quick tip: Make a backup of your Cloudant database
Fri, Nov 3rd 2017 3:04p   Frank van der Linden
For HR Assistant, we use Cloudant database as storage of the data on the IBM Cloud Today I was thinking about ‘what if we loose our data as something goes wrong’. It is not likeable, but still possible. Make a backup On IBM Cloud, there is documentation about making a backup of your data. So installed the npm package couchbackup  and run the command as described in the documentation.] I changed only to store the output as a JSON file. When I run the command I hit an error about au

HR Assistant – now available in every language

One of the latest features I had add to HR Assistant is multi language support. It was obvious we needed this new features, as not the whole world is talking English One of my goals was to make it as configurable as possible. Default language The default language of the application is still English. All the labels are stored in the application it self as a property file if there are no languages configured these property file will be loaded. On the overview page of the languages is the possibil

HR Assistant – what happened since last year

Last year I won together with Frédéric Dehédin the ICS Developer Contest 2016 with our HR Assistant application, a cognitive solution to help the HR department with of IBM Watson services. As required the code was open sourced at a public Github repository. What happened with HR Assistant since that moment? From public to closed First thing was to take the code back In the final stage of the development we were not able to include all the features we wanted upfront. So we skipped some featu

Spring boot and Thymeleaf – rapid application development
Fri, Oct 20th 2017 6:02p   Frank van der Linden
At one of my customers I was able to use to build an application with preview functionality of a business critical application. As usual the business wants this application as soon as possible. So the obvious choice was Spring boot in combination with Thymeleaf. Spring Boot Spring boot created spring based applications which can run as a runnable jar, with embedded a Tomcat server. But a Spring boot application can with a few tweaks run on a Websphere Application Server or Websphere Liberty Pro

Quick NPM tip: don’t forget to uninstall node modules
Tue, Jul 4th 2017 4:08p   Frank van der Linden
NPM is great tool to have all your Node modules in your front end project, and don’t have to worry about dependencies. When you find a useful module for your project just do ‘npm install –save-dev’ and you are ready to go, but….. it can pollute your node_modules directory with unused node modules. Just uninstall your unused node module by ‘npm uninstall ’ by The post Quick NPM tip: don’t forget to uninstall node modules appeared first on elstar

Angular 4 bug in combination with latest Typescript
Sat, Jul 1st 2017 10:51a   Frank van der Linden
When we upgraded our Angular app to the latest version. We noticed everything worked with version 4.2.3 and Typescript 2.4. The problem After we reinstalled all the nom packages the Angular version was upgraded to 4.2.4, because we had in our package.json ‘^4.2.3’ for Angular packages. When we package everything and republished the app to the page, we got errors, huh!!!! The solution After some search I found it has to do with the combination of Typescript and Angular
