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

Scoped Variables, Implicit Variables and Repeat Controls
Thu, Feb 5th 2015 7:29a   Paul Withers
Last week I spoke with Tony McGuckin at IBM Connect. This blog post is explaining a problem I had recently, the cause, the investigation and the resolution two possible resolutions. All relate to content I covered in that session, particularly around the JSF lifecycle. It’s also why the JSF lifecycle is something I always cover at the very start of the Troubleshooting XPages element of the XPages training course I’ve developed and delivered for Intec. The Problem The problem was I ha

IBM ConnectED (Not Lotusphere) Reflections
Thu, Jan 29th 2015 12:01p   Paul Withers
It’s been a busy week as always. So now the dust has settled here are a few thoughts. No Matter What Changes, The Community Persists Our community is an awesome thing, often mentioned with envy by those working outside what was ICS and is now ESS (Enterprise Social Solutions). Over recent years there have been some notable exceptions at our January event. I think we’ll have to wait some months, if not longer, to see the impact of the structural changes within IBM. And IBM are yet to

IBM ConnectED 2015
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 8:10a   Paul Withers
In just a short few days, fellow IBM Champion Tim Malone and myself (Paul Withers) will be heading off to IBM ConnectED. With one less day but just as much to do, it’s likely to be even more hectic than ever. Here’s a summary of things I intend to be involved in. OpenNTF Domino API / CrossWorlds One of the key aspects for the week for me is to touch base with the OpenNTF Domino API team and particularly get up to speed with CrossWorlds. CrossWorlds was a new project that came into be
