REST Services, JsonJavaObject and Dates
Sat, Sep 24th 2016 10:40a   Paul Withers
In REST services, the standard format for dates is the ISO 8601 format, which formats the time offset against UTC. So 24th September 2016 12:00:00 British Summer Time would be a string in the format “2016-09-24T12:00:00+01:00”. However, when you want to use that in your application, you need to convert the text string to something your application can use, which when doing a JAX-RS REST service means some flavour of Java date. java.util.Date doesn’t actually include any timezon

It seems very fitting that part way through a blog post about community, Marky Roden released his “Not NotesIn9” celebration of David Leedy. It’s been a pleasure to know Dave and call him a friend for so long. So, somewhat belatedly, here’s my video (I missed the NotesIn9 on embedding a video properly, so you might need to click on the button to display in full screen mode). Below it there’s a picture of Dave, if you don’t know him (sorry, couldn’t resis

The Importance of Community
Mon, Sep 19th 2016 5:08p   Paul Withers
Back in April, after Engage and an XPages on Bluemix seminar at IBM Ireland I wrote a piece called “The Future of (Domino) App Dev in a Single Word”. That word was community, and the feeling was driven by public and private initiatives around XPages and XPages development. This seems a profoundly apposite moment to revisit that sentiment. The Evolution of XPages Let’s step back seven years. Web development had taken off and more and more applications were being delivered for br

What’s New in Notes and Domino
Tue, Sep 13th 2016 9:41a   Paul Withers
At IBM Connect 2016 in January, IBM announced delivery of 9.0.2 in Q4 2016. But from May (I first saw this in public at the equivalent of IBM Connect Comes to You in London) IBM announced that 9.0.2 would not be delivered as expected. There have been two important and relevant announcements recently. The first was an announcement about changes around downloading Notes/Domino files from Fix Central. The second was an announcement of extended support for Notes and Domino. The first thing worth not

With just over a week until ICON UK, it will be a busy event for Intec. I (Paul Withers) will be delivering a session on graph databases called “Find your data – use GraphDB capabilities in XPages applications – and beyond“. I recently blogged on my personal blog site about why I am a big fan of graph databases. I recently came across a blog post by Christian Tillmans who also seems to be a fan of graph databases. The session will focus on what graph database options are

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
