XOTS: Background and MultiThreaded Tasks the OpenNTF Domino API Way (Part Three)
Thu, Apr 16th 2015 8:25a   Paul Withers
In the previous two parts I covered the background of XOTS, using a basic tasklet to return a result, and using a basic tasklet to run a background task allowing the user to continue working with the application while the background task completed. In that example the background task did not take a huge amount of time, so it might be worth waiting for the task to complete. But it was iterating over all the states and getting a list of names for contacts in those states. Wouldn’t it be more

XOTS: Background and MultiThreaded Tasks the OpenNTF Domino API Way (Part Two)
Wed, Apr 15th 2015 9:15a   Paul Withers
Yesterday I blogged introducing where we are with XOTS in OpenNTF Domino API, plus a short example about how to create a tasklet and call it. The example was a bit “hello world” – why would you want to call a tasklet to get the current username, when it’s possible and much easier to do that directly in your XPages code? But it gave the basics of creating a background tasklet and accessing the outcome immediately. So let’s go further with an example that runs a backg

XOTS: Background and MultiThreaded Tasks the OpenNTF Domino API Way (Part One)
Tue, Apr 14th 2015 8:13a   Paul Withers
OpenNTF Domino API has provided a number of significant enhancements. One of the more recent is XOTS. As its name suggests, XOTS brings together XPages and DOTS. At this point I think it’s worthwhile backtracking and giving some background on DOTS, which many XPages developers will not have utilised. DOTS came in with 8.5.3 and runs within OSGi to allow code that is outside of the NSF to run and return a response, but still interacting with NSFs. The (only officially supported) implementat

Engage, Graphs, CrossWorlds and Vaadin
Wed, Apr 8th 2015 6:46p   Paul Withers
Last week I delivered a session at Engage with Daniele Vistalli entitled Jedi and Sith: OpenNTF Domino API and CrossWorlds. The session covered different aspects related to developments within OpenNTF Domino API over the last year, one of which Nathan T Freeman covered in greater depth during his session entitled The Graph Revolution. It finally brought together a variety of new techniques into a demo application: the Tinkerpop extension within OpenNTF Domino API to bring graph databases to Domi

New Release of Extension Library, Including MapPicker and CollectionPicker
Thu, Mar 26th 2015 6:30a   Paul Withers
This week IBM released the twelfth 9.0.1 release of the Extension Library. It’s great to see the inclusion of mapValuePicker and collectionValuePicker tags. That has proved the completion of a journey almost two years in the making, since I first blogged a tutorial series on doing this, back in May 2013. At the time they were just Java classes used to compute the value of the dataProvider. They were then submitted onto XSnippets, again as Java classes to compute the dataProvider. With some

Managed Beans, Scopes and Lifetimes
Mon, Mar 23rd 2015 6:27a   Paul Withers
A colleague asked me last week about the managed beans and whether a requestScoped bean would be loaded for every request. It’s something I had inadvertently already proved but forgotten. It’s always worth clarifying though and of relevance to more than just managed beans, but anything defined in the faces-config. All objects defined in the faces-config are defined as a variable name mapping to a class. So for a managed bean like this: openLogBean org.openntf.domino.xsp.XspOpe

Adding Themes to XPages Dojo Charts
Fri, Feb 27th 2015 9:59a   Paul Withers
Since I first blogged about Dojo charting in XPages in 2009, quite a lot has changed with Dojo. Much of what I did then is still valid, including the additional JavaScript file I created at Lotusphere 2011 and contributed to OpenNTF for making the chart legend multi-column and allowing styling on it. However, when trying to add a different theme last week, I found the code I have used previously didn’t work. This comprised creating a new instance of dojox.charting.Theme on the fly, assigni

A Case of Case
Mon, Feb 23rd 2015 11:19a   Paul Withers
We all know that XPages URLs are case sensitive. So for a page “Domino_ViewState.xsp”, you cannot use “domino_viewstate.xsp”. However, what’s not so widely known is that the URLs are only case sensitive after the first character. So both “Domino_ViewState.xsp” and “domino_ViewState.xsp” will work for opening the XPage. However, although both will work, there can then be problems with functionality that uses those values as strings. One of tho
