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)
Calling web services from XPages the missing part
Tue, Mar 4th 2014 12:49p Fredrik Norling I had an XPage project where I needed to call some web services to get some information and after reading on different blogs my hopes of getting this to work was almost null. But sometimes knowing your history helps and I remembered how I started to create subforms using dxl for several years ago and that almost everything is stored with in the design note.
So I started to think, does the built in web service consumer create the code inside the design element and yes it did. Great!

Application Scope lesson learned today
Mon, Oct 28th 2013 1:18p Fredrik Norling I got an email a few days ago regarding my Document Locker openntf project. The question was why it didn’t work. I tested my application and it worked as expected. But then I thought perhaps the developer is using the code from XPinc because I added a Xpinc page in the project and I must confess I didn’t test that before releasing the project as much as I usually do.
And this was the case, they where using an XPinc application. And the lesson in this was.

Why your business should be in the cloud
Sun, Oct 27th 2013 12:48p Fredrik Norling Are you an developer or an software administrator?
If you answed Yes, why would you then want to look after or upgrade server hardware ever again?
You should focus on the future of your applications /business not on when harddisks / motherboards needs to be replaced. Another great thing is scaling your business in a cloud enviroment. Traditional you have to size the server after the biggest load. But with a real cloud based solution you can change the size so it fits your needs or the provider [read] Keywords: ibm
