10 Developer Things I like IBM to show at Connect 2014
Fri, Jan 17th 2014 187


Results of my poll
Fredrik    

I did a poll some days ago 300 people answered the poll

http://www.xpagedeveloper.com/2012/3-quick-questions-about-xpages-and-domino

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) 

Yellow forever and ever!!!!!

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!

IBM Connections 2014 Day 2
Wed, Jan 29th 2014 6:50a   Fredrik Norling
Another day in the Connections week has past and my reflections today was SBT (Social Business Toolkit) is big. This is a really big investment by IBM, and I see alot of great things in this. IBM seams really commited to get this api out to everybody. They have support for javascript, php, Xpages, IOS and more. Hope that they will really try to get all the big cloud vendors to adapt this, that would be really great. Social Business Toolkit is apart of one of IBM:s focus areas SMAC – Social [read] Keywords: connections ibm rich text xpages development javascript mobile twitter

Yesterday was the first day of IBM Connect 2014. The Opening session was full of news for the Cloud area.

Hybrid Notes is where you use your Notes client for Mail, Calendar and apps but your servers is in the cloud. The Big announcement was Mail Next a new way to look at the inbox. And from twitter I got some confirmations that this is should be for the Notes Client also, great.
