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 ...
Update Site for Eclipse Coloor Themes
Mon, Dec 9th 2013 6:11a Paul Withers I’ve had the request to post the update site for Eclipse Color Themes that can be used in Domino Designer, built from version 0.12.0. I’m conscious it can be a bit daunting if you’re not familiar with Eclipse, and although I would encourage developers to have a go (the instructions are on my previous post), here is a pre-created Update Site. All credit goes to the guys who developed the plugin, I’m just packaging up an old version that I haven’t found pre-packaged a [read] Keywords: domino
Eclipse Color Themes and Domino Designer
Thu, Nov 28th 2013 5:17a Paul Withers Jesse Gallagher, amongst others, has blogged before about installing the Eclipse Color Themes plugin into Domino Designer, to give a richer styling for editors. It’s something I did a long time ago and my preferred theme is part of the preferences I have exported from Domino Designer.
But when I installed 9.0.1 I did a fresh install, so didn’t have the Eclipse Color Theme plugin installed. That was not a problem though, because the theme still worked. But without the plugin, you have [read] Keywords: domino
Java and Selections Part Eight: Value Pickers With Label-Value Pairs
Fri, Nov 15th 2013 7:17a Paul Withers About six months ago I did a tutorial series on passing a List or Set into a Value Picker. That covered the scenario where the label and value are the same. Somewhat belatedly, I’m concluding the series with the code for passing in a Map – the scenario where the label and the value need to be different. Some developers may already have implemented that based on my previous blog posts and the XSnippet for the ListPicker dataProvider for Value Picker, though I haven’t seen that b [read] Keywords: java
Optimising View Data and Avoiding Errors
Wed, Nov 6th 2013 7:11a Paul Withers Since 8.5.1 dominoView datasources have had a property dataCache. By default the setting is “full” which means that all the data for all relevant entries and columns is stored in the server-side map of the page. That can impact the size of content held in memory or being written to disk. But there is also another impact, because some data like DateTimes cannot be stored natively in memory or on disk, for the same reason that such Domino objects cannot be stored in viewScope etc. The [read] Keywords: domino
Location, Location, Location
Thu, Oct 17th 2013 3:13p Paul Withers Recently I’ve answered two queries from different sources, both of which manifested themselves with mail functionality not working as expected. In both cases, Notes Clients had been newly installed. In both, the cause was the same.
The first was with an application that was throwing an error when LotusScript was calling NotesDocument.send() to send an email.
The second was an impassioned plea from the one and only Joyce Davis. Calendar alarms were not popping up in her newly-installed Note [read] Keywords: lotusscript
Wed, Oct 2nd 2013 6:12a Paul Withers For as long as I can remember, Bruce Elgort has been chairman of OpenNTF. I just looked up to see how long and found he’s been chairman since December 2001, almost as long as I’ve been developing Domino applications. OpenNTF has been a key resource for me as a developer, an area I’ve contributed to over recent years and recently joined the board. I couldn’t possibly speak about all the work Bruce has done over the years for OpenNTF, but it’s continued to evolve in r [read] Keywords: collaboration
