IBM Domino to be or not to be

The last week after MWLUG there has been numerous blog posts about Domino. No roadmap IBM is killing Domino, there is no future for Domino, IBM haven’t released any new releases since 9.01. That is not true at all, if we look at what has been released since 9.0.1 came to market. IBM Domino customers have received 6 fixpacks but they are not only fixpacks they are feature packs. Why, well the Domino http engine has received TLS 1.0 and later TLS 1.2 with new encryption methods. That is a major improvement if you ask me.
And if you go beyond the server and include traveler that I use all the time and see all new functionality that has been released there, and lately the possibility to use the Mobile Verse Client and Outlook mail support.

XPages Extension library has received 17 improvement releases for app development. These improvements has been adding updated one ui theme, jquery and jquery themes. Mobile development components, new xpages components and lots more. Yes, some improvements are better than others.
And with the upcoming FP7 that I hope will include Java 8 support, external view indexes and hopefully more. 

For IBM or other vendors to be able to keep up with everything happening needs new ideas and if you look at the market in general the release of new versions is moving from yearly big releases to quarterly or monthly improvement releases. I would rather want more small releases than one big one with a new number on it.

That is the change I’ve seen with 9.01 from big releases to quarterly improvements both with fix packs but also thru the extension library releases. And after reading some comments on other blogs (Johnnys) from Ed Brill a commitment to deliver maintenance until 2021 that is great if you ask me that means at least security fixes, fixpacks and hopefully new functionality. When everything comes around IBM Domino is a great platform to develop applications, run applications on and administer applications on. Yes it has it’s downsides but doesn’t all platforms have that if you look closely. 

I remember last time when Domino was dead but it’s still here.

Long Live IBM Domino

Getting data from an HTTPS site in backend using XPages
Wed, Oct 11th 2017 7:56a   Fredrik Norling
If you want to connect to an SSL protected site and get information it could be an webpage or a webservice if you are using xpages and the certifier isn’t already in Domino you need to import the certificates. Open up the Domino Name and adress book navigate to Security -> Certificates When you are in this view the action menu will have a new option Select these and import each of the certificates that you have. When they are imported you need to create a Cross certificate. Go in to ea

java.io.File doesn’t work as expected in Domino FP7 and newer versions
Tue, Sep 26th 2017 6:54p   Fredrik Norling
I found this error in a java agent first. If you detach a file from a Notes document using Domino Classes and try to get a handle on the file using java.io.File the file isn’t found until you do a new call against the server. I don’t know if this has to do with the change of Java version server side or not but the same code works in FP6. Code Example Body.extractFile(strFileName); File objInFile = new File(strFileName); if(objInFile.exists()){ But if you go and use java.io.File

Verse 1.0.2 with Live text and send extensions
Mon, Sep 4th 2017 2:18p   Fredrik Norling
Yes you heard right, onpremise Verse gets extensionpoints that gives you the possibility to find text and populate this. And also gives you the possibility to do intercept the user before a email is sent. This is great for compliance reasons. There is more good stuff in there but this is really exciting a developer end point in to web email.

If you are using Domino and mail on premise you should install Verse now. My list on why you should Modern fast interface for your users Supersmart filtering of emails Filter by folder, time and even containing attachments, Group emails by thread. Last two added with Verse 1.01 Need Action and wait for functions for better email workflows Offline emails Installing Verse is a simple operation, make sure that your server has the right Domino and FP version installed. Also add the 2 new views

Why companies should train the employees in IT-Security today
Sat, Feb 11th 2017 9:28a   Fredrik Norling
Demands what and what not the employees do on their computers becomes more and more important. Some examples, a person comes in to the reception desk with a presentation with coffee stains on it. Asks to get a new copy, please it’s on my USB drive. And the hacker is in your network! If this was after the 25:th of may 2018 your company could get fines because the employee didn’t get enough training. This is only one example, what about passwords do they use the same password to your i

We have everything on our own servers you might say and have no use for IBM Bluemix Cloud services you might say. Well, I think you are wrong, Bluemix will help you expand the reach of your applications beyond borders that you might have today. Lets say you have an internal audit application and you want some external users to answer on some audits. Bluemix will help you here without opening up or adding a new server Perhaps you want to get some users in another part of the world to get web acc

If you have or haven’t heard of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that is a European Union law that will be in effect on the 25:th of May 2018.
