My recent work on XPages in an existing web app
Paul Withers    

Over the last week I've been rather busy including some XPages functionality in an existing Domino web application, and as an example I wanted to explain why I chose XPages, some steps I took and the ...

The Perils of getColumnValues().get(0)
Sun, Jul 20th 2014 4:12p   Paul Withers
Bill F posed a good question on StackOverflow about the issue of object.recycle and when to use it. It’s un understandable question and one I hit years ago after crashing a server looping through 20,000 documents in a search. I raised a PMR, got a response directing me to technotes on recycling in Java. Searching help, wikis and other places gave me no documentation on recycling in SSJS, which gave me reason to believe I was the first to hit the problem in XPages. So I blogged about it at [read] Keywords: agent domino xpages database java openntf server

XPages Build Project Investigations Improvement
Wed, Jul 9th 2014 7:15a   Paul Withers
Some time ago I wrote about how you have to build twice if you have Build Automatically switched off, then open an application in Designer and make a change – the first build was incremental. Just to revisit, I would always recommend having Build Automatically switched off unless you’re in an instance of Designer that can only ever have access to a local Domino server or local applications. Building a database remotely is not quick. Building a database has been known to break it if t [read] Keywords: domino ibm xpages application applications database server

Triggering an EventHandler from Another Button
Tue, Jul 8th 2014 7:15a   Paul Withers
Today there was a question on StackOverflow about how to trigger an eventHandler of control A from control B. I knew I’d done it before, but couldn’t remember where and couldn’t find where I’d blogged on it. So here is the way I originally did it and the better way. The Padawan’s Way Once you start going to the source pane, you see much more than you do in the Design pane. One of those things you see is that you can click on an xp:eventHandler component and you see [read] Keywords: xpages java properties

What Happens When An XPage Loads?
Wed, Jul 2nd 2014 4:11p   Paul Withers
There have been a few questions lately on StackOverflow trying to troubleshoot activity during the initial page load. So I thought I’d write a post to try to clarify the process. This certainly helps me pre-empt some functionality and provides an explanation for some of the questions I’ve seen. Using code from Jesse Gallagher’s XPages Scaffolding in projects has really helped give me this understanding, so I’d like to give Jesse a shoutout for his work.

10 Steps to deploying a successful social business platform Step 10 – Dismantle delivery team
Mon, Jun 16th 2014 1:12p   Paul Withers
If all has gone to plan, then a point will be reached (between two–three years on) where it is sensible to dismantle the delivery team and to replace them with platform managers from the different de-partments as the collaborative community matures. This does not necessarily mean that personnel who worked in the delivery team are no longer required, but rather that the role will have changed from a design and development role to a second line platform support and maintenance position.

10 Steps to deploying a successful social business platform Step 9: Now paint the bridge from the other end
Mon, Jun 16th 2014 1:12p   Paul Withers
With an established group of champions and leaders in place and 2nd wavers starting to make use of the platform, the delivery team can now look at the next phase of the platform development and follow many of the steps completed above. In terms of the next phase, much will depend on the nature of the business and its priorities. That said, there are today a number of digital developments that all companies will be obliged to evaluate: Gamification; Social media integration with social business; [read] Keywords: collaboration development integration

In a recent project I’ve extended the document wrapper Tim Tripcony showed in his NotesIn9 series on XPages and Java. Previously I’ve just used the dominoDocument datasource on the XPage. Today I was battling with a problem when editing a document that had been created in Notes. I was getting the very helpful message “Validation Error: Value is not valid”, with no help on which field it was referring to. I eventually tracked it down to a Combo Box. On the underlying docum [read] Keywords: notes rich text xpages java

10 Steps to deploying a successful social business platform Step 8: Use platform analytics to inform next action
Fri, Jun 13th 2014 6:12a   Paul Withers
Just as there is no real ‘go live date’ for a collaboration platform, there is also no end of project date. The collaboration community grows and needs to be maintained at all times. With most 2nd wavers now on the platform, usage and interaction will mushroom and this is the point where the delivery team needs to be able to gather platform analytics which they can share with the business and which will inform their next actions. So, for example, an HR initiative around talent management can [read] Keywords: collaboration community

10 Steps to deploying a successful social business platform Step 5: Identify champions and leaders
Wed, Jun 4th 2014 8:15a   Paul Withers
As a result of the immersion workshops the delivery team will be pleasantly surprised to see natural platform champions and leaders emerge. These are people who are either regular users of networking technology in their private lives (champions), or they are people who can immediately see the business benefits to be gained from this way of working (leaders). Identifying and ‘recruiting’ these people to help develop the company’s collaboration goal is the number one priority of the delivery [read] Keywords: collaboration networking

10 Steps to deploying a successful social business platform Step 7: Roll out in phases
Wed, Jun 4th 2014 8:15a   Paul Withers
There is no definitive ‘live date’ for a social business platform. With both 1st and 2nd wavers it is necessary to develop it in stages. After all, these people will be busy with their respective jobs and the time that they can devote to the platform in the early stages will vary enormously. This is the art of the community manager – the ability to work with users to identify a few simple business tasks that can be performed solely in the platform. They should then assist the business to c [read] Keywords: collaboration community email
