88% of the people who responed has atleast one server with 8.5.2 or 8.5.3 interesting
29% Is seeing an increase in mobile applications and 43% is seeing an increase in web vs client.
55% is still doing 50% XPages and traditional Domino development. But one of the big things is that 24% of the people voating is not doing any XPage development at all that is almost equal to the amount that is doing only XPage development.
This small poll is no science at all 300 people of the hole IBM customer base of Domino
But from this small amount of people 88% of these companies can run XPage Applications.
Client applications is still here so IBM will probably need to increase the investment in XPages Client integration. or perhaps just buy the XPages2Eclipse product from Mindoo. If that product was integrated as a part of the XPage offering from IBM we would get a big jump forward in Client/Eclipse integration and that is needed.
One might wonder if the 24% part that is not investing at all is customers that is moving away from the Domino platform. What can be done to make them believe in the platform again?
1. IBM need to show that Domino still is the leading platform for corporate applications.
(the Domino Server needs it’s own appstore, openntf.org we just need a packager perhaps.)
2. IBM needs to create a demand for Domino, make everybody aware that is a platform that is alive!!!
(Marketing Marketing Marketing and ROI )
3. The platform will need a more modern look that isn’t traditional Notes.
(I’m sad perhaps I’m one of the few that like it)
4. IBM needs to invest alot more money into the Eclipse platform to get the stability that we had before
Eclipse. (Perhaps a way to move to newer releases of Eclipse faster is the answer, I don’t know)
Simple Social – It doesn’t have to be difficult
Mon, May 20th 2013 6:14a Fredrik Norling IBM is talking about social business, the press is talking about Social media.

Setting up your Domino server to prevent password attacks
Sun, May 5th 2013 6:17a Fredrik Norling There as been some writing around attacks against WordPress based sites and a lot of them has been taken over and malicious code was injected on these sites. How was most of these attacks done? Well I think that this was probably done thru so called brute force attacks. The hacker have a software that is posting in attempts on the login page and they know that the default admin account is “admin” on WordPress, alot of sites haven’t removed this account. This type of Brute Force [read] Keywords: acl

Designer quick tip: Find the design element fast
Mon, Apr 15th 2013 5:21a Fredrik Norling I often have quite large databases at customers and in the QNova development phases with lots of design elements. You look at a button and find that and agent is used or a function is called in a script library, you switch to the agents view and starts to look inside the view for the agent by scrolling down.
But there is a better and faster way to find what you are looking for, Designer filter.
The filter is in all design element views so it’s not a XPage only feature.
The great thing abo [read] Keywords: agent

The shift of Mobile and Browsers
Sat, Apr 6th 2013 1:47a Fredrik Norling Interesting day, 4:th of April 2013.
Google breaks with Webkit and starts a competitor rendering engine Blink and the main reason is that they don’t want to be controlled by Apple what goes into the engine or not. Opera also annouced they will start using this engine. I think this started when Apple did throw out Google from IOS 6, now they throw out Apple from a free ride to browser rendering.

SSJS Debugger Demo in Notes in 9
Check out my two post last year regarding a SSJS Debugger –> Link
Conditional breakpoints was one of the suggestions that was voted up as a function in the debugger and we get that. I don’t know if someone at IBM did read this and the feature is there because of the post but I like to think so

Filter and hide closed databases
Mon, Feb 25th 2013 9:07a Fredrik Norling I had some feedback on the designer some weeks ago, that it would be good to filter away closed databases in package explorer. This does already exists in Designer today, Kudros to Dan O’Connor that showed me this. (The icon has changed from 8.5.3 to Designer 9)
And uncheck Closed projects
Now your package explorer is much cleaner and you can find you databases alot faster.
The closed project does also show up directly in the menu so you easily can toggle it.
