Watson Work Services Java API Introduction
Thu, Nov 24th 2016 2:45p   Paul Withers
For a few weeks now, Christian Guedemann and I have been working on a Java API to send requests to Watson Work Services to interact with a Watson Workspace. I blogged about the approach recently. I was determined to avoid Java developers having to write strings of JSON data to pass as queries to Watson Work Services. Over the weekend I saw a tweet from Christian where he had incorporated the code into a Workspace Client 4 Eclipse plugin: @guedeWebGate @PaulSWithers looking good mate — Mat Ne

DDE Local Preview and CKEditor
Thu, Nov 24th 2016 1:51p   Paul Withers
For a long time I’ve been a strong advocate of using a local Domino server for XPages development. DDE Local preview had its place for Notes Client development, but has not had the required investment to keep pace with XPages enhancements. There are now too many quirks and workarounds required when using local preview to justify it as a viable tool. And the amount of development required to address those issues (not to mention QA and testing), even if possible do not justify the request. W

Watson Workspace and Watson Work Services
Thu, Oct 27th 2016 3:11p   Paul Withers
This week has brought the preview beta of Watson Workspace and Watson Work Services, what was previously called Toscana. These are very early days, without a doubt. Some are disappointed at the progress since the announcement at IBM Connect in February (seem screenshots can be seen here). The majority of features users take for granted in comparative products like Slack and Skype (e.g. direct messages, @mention alerts, favourites) still missing. But there has clearly been a lot of work undertake

Whatever Happened to “XPages Extension Library: Second Edition”
Tue, Oct 11th 2016 9:53a   Paul Withers
I’ve mentioned at user groups that there is unlikely to ever be a second edition of “XPages Extension Library” and many of the reasons have been apparent for all well before now. Whatever the decision about the future of application development on Domino that IBM release, whether at the end of this year or later, I am now more convinced than ever that there will be no point in writing a second edition. A little over two years ago, “Mastering XPages 2nd Edition” had

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

Thanks, David Leedy!
Mon, Sep 19th 2016 6:15p   Paul Withers
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

Intec at ICON UK
Tue, Sep 6th 2016 9:05a   Paul Withers
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
