IBM Domino App Dev Hits the Headlines
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 7:26a   Paul Withers
IBM Domino has always been very active within Germany. So it’s no surprise that online IT journal Heise Online published an article summarising recent blog posts about the current state of application development for the IBM Domino platform. IBM have shown a commitment to the platform for mail, always quick to say that Verse is still IBM Domino at the backend and already providing a closed beta for the on premises version of Verse. But the position of the platform for application developme

As many will already have seen, Pete Janzen’s last day at IBM is today. I’ve been fortunate enough to know Pete for some years no and he has laways been a pleasure to work with. The first time I talked with him was at Lotusphere some years ago, shortly after I had started blogging. I managed to catch him in the corridor of the Swan after his session and introduced myself. I was impressed that not only did Pete already know who I was, he said he had wanted to speak to me. Fast forward

SSJS Revisited: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Tue, Aug 16th 2016 7:20p   Paul Withers
It is a number of years now since I decided to commit to Java, for a number of reasons. The biggest were: lack of good compile-time validation, which meant it was possible to mistype a variable name or method name lack of templating, which meant constantly typing try/catch blocks difficulty troubleshooting – this was before the SSJS debugger, but even when the debugger was released, I struggled to work well with it A little while after starting with Java I had a discussion with Tim Tripc

The annual appraisal – is it still relevant?
Thu, Aug 11th 2016 8:56a   Paul Withers
It’s coming up to that time of year again, and your manager sends a calendar invite to meet for your annual appraisal. Not something you’ve been looking forward to, as it’s highly likely that your agenda’s differ. They want you to become more productive and are likely to have all sorts of new responsibilities, procedures and measurement metrics to hoist on you, and you want to know how much they appreciate you, and how they’re going to express that in financial term

JSON RPC Service, Component Tree Manipulation and OpenLog
Thu, Aug 4th 2016 5:29p   Paul Withers
One of the parts of the XPages Extension Library I’ve not used extensively is a component under the Data Access category called Remote Service – the JSON RPC Service. This allows server-side code to be triggered from client-side JavaScript and return a string response. The server-side code can also receive parameters. It’s covered from page 351 in the XPages Extension Library book. Just to refresh on this, the JSON RPC Service component is allocated a serviceName, which is the

Displaying Images with “Don’t Allow URL Open”
Mon, Jul 18th 2016 5:09a   Paul Withers
Recently I was adding a new XPages front-end onto an existing database. I chose to split database and XPages application, so the data is in a separate database. So, for security purposes and to prevent access to the old web front-end, I had the bright of locking down URL access by enabling the “Don’t allow URL open” property on the database. It seemed like a great idea, until I realised the documents also included images; and the image is displayed by URL; which goes to the ori

How employment branding can help create a high performing workforce
Fri, Jun 3rd 2016 4:17a   Paul Withers
In recent conversations I have had with companies on their recruitment process, it has become clear how their own recruitment strategy is a jumble of trial and error and outsourcing it to agencies. Not many take into account how their own employees are feeling, working and performing. How can we expect to recruit the top talent if we don’t know how our current workforce is feeling? This is where the internal branding idea comes in. Internal branding is the story that an organisation tells. Thi

XOTS: Background and MultiThreaded Tasks the OpenNTF Domino API Way (Part Four)
Fri, Apr 29th 2016 7:57p   Paul Withers
It’s been about a year since I last blogged about XOTS. Just to recap, XOTS is a method of running background multi-threaded tasks coded within an NSF. It’s basically DOTS tasklets within XPages. The tasklet extends Runnable if you just want to call it and let it run in the background, or Callable if you want to wait for it to complete and return a value. There are, by default, ten XOTS threads so up to ten tasklets can be running simultaneously. That doesn’t mean you can’
