Dojox Charting Update – Part One
Thu, Jul 20th 2017 1:25p   Paul Withers
It’s over three years since my last blog post on the charting options available with Dojo. At that time the version of Dojo in XPages would have been later than 1.6, when a major overhaul of Dojo for AMD processing had taken place. But then and afterwards I didn’t revisit the code to load Dojo charts. This week I needed to create some charts again, so took a step back and looked at the documentation on the Dojo site (there’s also the reference guide). Although a lot of the func

Call to Action: Designer Lite Plugin
Wed, Jun 28th 2017 12:15p   Paul Withers
At Engage I hosted a round table discussion titled “Domino Next Generation IDE“. The discussion was around giving / promoting CRUD API access to databases, views and forms, as well as managing scheduled processes (which in the NSF world is handled as agents). The discussion was useful and covered a number of aspects. Since then I’ve digested and distilled the feedback I received, done some further investigation, and put together a spec. That has now been published on OpenNTF

CRUD, NoSQL, Domino and Workflow
Thu, Jun 22nd 2017 8:30p   Paul Withers
For many months now – dating back to the middle of last year when Domino app dev was in limbo – I’ve been wrestling with what seems to me to be an elephant in the room with regard to Domino, NoSQL and REST. At the time many were looking at alternatives to part or all of the Domino stack. An alternative backend was one area developers looked at, many considering alternative NoSQL databases like MongoDb or Cloudant. Using a JavaScript web development framework (e.g. Angular or Re

Swagger for Domino Developers – Part Four: Generating Domino Design Elements
Fri, Jun 16th 2017 12:21p   Paul Withers
This final part has taken a while, because of problems that will become apparent during the blog post! But I’ve finally overcome them, in a (hopefully) future-proofed manner, which I’ll also go into. Introduction Another one of Stephan Wissel’s projects on GitHub is the Swagger Domino Code Generator. If you’ve followed the other parts of this blog series and looked at the Swagger Editor, you’ll see there are various code generators for generating server-side code:

Some Recent XPages (and Plugin) Learning Points
Wed, May 24th 2017 12:11p   Paul Withers
With a recent project, I’ve been deep in the bowels of the XPages component tree and run-time, with some detailed debugging involved. This has brought a few things to my attention Dialogs and Component Loading I’ve been adding a component to an XPage and then using Java on page load to access it. But when I put the component in a Dialog, my code failed. The problem is that although the Dialog component is accessible, the components within it are not loaded into the component tree unt

Bootstrapv3 Form Table and Edit Box Width
Tue, May 23rd 2017 1:21p   Paul Withers
Yesterday I fought for quite some time trying to get Edit Boxes in a Form Table to go full width. It’s a starter database I’ve had for some time and converted from OneUI to Bootstrap. So I have some styles for setting the width of Edit Boxes, depending on whether I want small, medium or full-width. My CSS class for full width sets “width: 100%”. But this was being ignored. Using Firebug I could see it wasn’t being overridden by something else. I could see that the E

Engage Review and Slides
Thu, May 11th 2017 1:15p   Paul Withers
Over the last few days I’ve been attending Engage. As ever, it was an excellent conference, with a great attendance from across Europe. (If you’ve not attended a user group recently and will not this year, put it on your list for next year, May 2018.) As ever, Theo is a brilliant organiser and the social events were great. As ever, the speakers were top quality. The conference got off to a great start when Barry Rosen told me on Sunday evening that a free non-production entitle

Domino Server for Developers Entitlement Announced
Mon, May 8th 2017 9:29a   Paul Withers
Today at Engage Ed Brill announced that in Q3 there will be a Domino server licensing entitlement for developers. Yes, you read that correct. There are still some logistics to be finalised (e.g. access to feature packs to keep up to date), but this is great news. I’d like to thank Ed, Barry Rosen and Peter Janzen as well as anyone else I’m not aware of who has been involved in making this happen. It’s something I’ve been speaking to Barry and Pete since IBM Connect 2016,

Intec Speakers Next Week at Engage
Thu, May 4th 2017 12:50p   Paul Withers
Next week IBM Lifetime Champion Theo Heselmans is hosting Engage, back in Antwerp, of which I have fond memories. The last time the conference was there, Tim Tripcony and I spent quite some time discussing all things XPages on a walk around the city and at the speakers dinner. I’m looking forward again to enjoying the beautiful city. This time both myself (Paul Withers) and Tim Malone will be speaking. The Power To Believe On Monday at 11:45 Tim Malone will be speaking with HP Dalen will b

Swagger for Domino Developers – Part Three: Mock Server and Thanks Stephan Wissel
Mon, Apr 10th 2017 12:20p   Paul Withers
Stephan Wissel – One of Our “IBM” Champions As you may have seen, Stephan Wissel has recently left IBM to join SalesForce, as Rene Winkelmeyer and Mikkel Heisterberg did last year. because this part of my blog series will cover Stephan’s session from IBM Connect earlier this year and setting up a mock server for an OpenAPI (aka Swagger) definition, it seems a good time to thank him for his efforts over the years. His twitter feed has been very helpful in giving early noti
