Lessons in Optimising Performance
Sun, Sep 24th 2017 11:47a   Paul Withers
Over the last few months I’ve been involved with an application that has needed quite considerable optimisation and architectural modification. A few weeks ago I published a blog post about aspects of developing for performance and then followed up with a discussion about performance and Domino. In this blog I’m going to go into more depth about some of the lessons learned and techniques applied to address performance as required, highlight how performance requirements can change as

New ODA Release and Design API Updated
Fri, Sep 22nd 2017 12:14p   Paul Withers
This week two new releases of ODA came out on OpenNTF and also published to OpenNTF’s artifactory repository, for those wanting to use ODA via Maven. They covered a host of new developments and some minor fixes from over the last few months since Domino FP8 was released. On ODA, it’s worth pointing out there is a short url for accessing the project on OpenNTF – https://oda.openntf.org. 4.1.0 is the next FP8 release, the release notes are on the Release page on OpenNTF. Except f

There are signs you can tell summer is over. For us in the northern hemisphere, the weather starts feeling chillier (although it’s been very changeable in UK most of the “summer”). And things start ramping up as people get back from holidays and Q3 comes to an end. We’ve already seen Domino FP9 or Zircon released last month and another Verse on Premises release. It’s also good that I only just realised I’ve been running FP9 for a few weeks now. With previous r

Notes, Domino, The Cloud and Performance
Thu, Aug 24th 2017 1:04p   Paul Withers
Over the last month or so, I’ve been working on an application that pushes performance quite a bit. Last week I published a blog post about aspects of developing for performance. I’ll be writing a future blog post (maybe more than one) on the approaches I’ve taken for performance. But in this blog post I want to take a step back and discuss why I had to address performance, even after quite a bit of optimisation from the initial development. That’s because the learning re

IBM Notes and Domino FP9 (a.k.a Zircon)
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 4:27p   Paul Withers
Today Barry Rosen announced on Twitter that Notes and Domino FP9 have been released on Fix Central and will be added to Passport Advantage next week. Considering that just last week the target date announced was 25th August, this continues the theme of releases ahead of published schedule we saw with FP8. A look at the Release Notes shows something else, a code name for the release – Zircon. And Barry has also confirmed that FP10’s code name will be Mystic Topaz, continuing a theme o

Dojox Charting Update – Part Two
Thu, Aug 10th 2017 12:11p   Paul Withers
First of all, with the demo database, there are a couple of basic, standard changes. The first is that I’m using the XPages extension library, so that’s enabled in the Xsp Properties. That’s used for the Java code, to leverage the ExtLibUtil class to give easy access to standard XPages objects and virtually every Java XPages developer will be using ExtLibUtil. Whether or not you use Java in XPages is a matter of choice, personally I moved to using Java for anything significant

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:
