Goodbye NSF ...welcome XSF ...XPages Storage Facility
Thu, Jan 23rd 2014 3:36p   Jesper Kiaer
IBM Notes as development platform has been getting a good overhaul the recent years with the arrival of XPages. This has really boosted, and blown new air into IBM Notes/Domino and opened up for a lot of new possibilities. On the other hand the document database Notes Storage Facility ( NSF) has grown old (but maybe not ugly yet) and there has really been no major evolution the last many years. It is ridiculous the we have to deal with ancient old restrictions in 2014 like: • It is slow or [read] Keywords: dblookup domino ibm notes xpages database development java server sql

Just a slight warning about @MailDbName in version 9.0.1 of IBM Notes. have a customer where they have a lot of old code which rely on @MailDbName and it has worked for years. Last year they started to use Managed Replicas for mail databases, and @MailDbName would still return values as if the mail was server based. In version 9.0.1 it has changed and @MailDbName now returns an empty string as if it is a local replica. [read] Keywords: ibm notes server

The classic recycle design pattern is flawed in some document iterations
Fri, Apr 26th 2013 7:57a   Jesper Kiaer
As we all know you need to recycle your Domino Objects in Java to free up the back-end C++ objects, or your server will crash in the end. People in general use the same pattern when iterating through documents. Something like this: Document doc = view.getFirstDocument(); while (doc != null) { Document tmpdoc = view.getNextDocument(doc); doc.recycle(); doc = tmpdoc; } This will work in must situations, but in at least one situation you will get a serious NotesException: "Object has been [read] Keywords: domino bug database java server

When the order is crucial - use of both compression and encryption on data.

Sometimes the order in which things are done is really crucial. An example to this is the mix of encrypted and compressed data. Should you: Compress encrypted data ? or Encrypt compressed data? Due to the nature of encryption and compression the answer is of course very obvious, but I will anyhow back it with a small example. I have created some simple Java code which does the following: 1.

The "Mitre and The Sans Institute" has revealed a Top 25 list of the most dangerous errors in 2011. The errors are ranked and number one is the well known "SQL Injection". Two is the "Command Injection", while the classic "Buffer overflow vulnerability" came in third. You may think this is not relevant to you as a Lotus Notes/Domino developer/admin, but you are very wrong. Most of these 25 errors can either directly or indirectly be related to your work on the Lotus Notes or Domino pla [read] Keywords: admin domino lotus notes sql

Another reason not to do drugs: "..doctors say cocaine might also rot your skin — literally"
Mon, Jun 27th 2011 4:43p   Jesper Kiaer
I am one in the small minority group of living people, who hasn't done any drugs, and reading this news sure will keep it that way. . The price of cocaine has dropped so low that it has become what is seem to be the "drink" of the younger generations today. Abcnews.com has an alarming article about cocaine making the users body parts rot...literally. Apparently the drug cartels in South America increasingly prefer to use levamisole as a filler, instead of baking soda. Levamisole is a veter [read] Keywords:

Technology is evolving very fast, Sony Demonstrates Life-Altering SmartAR Technology (augmented reality) in Real Time
Tue, May 24th 2011 4:11p   Jesper Kiaer
From Wikipedia: "Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or an indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input, such as sound or graphics. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality" See this video wher [read] Keywords:

A nice little feature has come to my attention in the Domino Designer

A nice little feature has come to my attention in the Domino Designer. The little Filter box above the view listings. As we all know there are often (too) many views i Notes applications and a lot of scrolling is need since 8.5x does not keep the cursor in the view listing when getting in and out of editing views. So to narrow down the list of view just use the filter. Here is an example from the NAB. [read] Keywords: domino notes applications

Which Programming Language Inspires the Most Swearing? What about Lotus Notes?

C++ Maybe not a big surprise :-) Apparently PHP keeps you calm and relaxed on the other hand. Developer Andrew Vos decided to grab some one million commit messages from GitHub and scan them for swear words. Wonder how much Lotus Notes makes you swear.

Upgrading Domino to 8.5.2 FP1 fails with "Not valid Domino version was detected: 852HF17"
Sun, Dec 19th 2010 5:16p   Jesper Kiaer
Normally things runs smoothly when upgrading Domino and Notes installations. Earlier today I wrote about my issues with upgrading to 8.5.2FP1 on the Notes client. Later today I tried to upgrade a Domino server running on CentOS 5.5. (Red Hat) version 8.5.2.HF17. I got the error: "Not valid Domino version was detected: 852HF17" I also did try to upgrade to 8.5.5 HF2 first but I got the same error. Any ideas how to solve this ?

Beware of the URL bug in 8.5.2 and how to avoid it.
Tue, Aug 31st 2010 5:20a   Jesper Kiaer
As I wrote in my blog the other day there is a URL bug in 8.5.2. It seems the problem is that !opendatabase does not work in 8.5.2. This has given me problems in several of my websites, Normally you would for public web sites set the Domino server to use ! in URL command instead of ?. The ? has a special meaning in a URL which (in the old days at least) would confuse search engines when hitting a Domino URL. So IBM came up the idea of using ! in the URL instead.

Upgraded the very Domino server this blog is running on just now, 8.5.1 to 8.5.2. Things went pretty well, the install was blazing fast due to the fact I am using SSD on the server. After starting the upgraded Domino things looked ok, until I tried opening my blog http://nevermind.dk and got a 404. Huh?? I could access the blog by typing the full URL. Something has changed in 8.5.2, since the Internet Site document does not work any more. Changing it to made it work again. The Dom [read] Keywords: domino lotus bug centos server

The test was pretty simple: Check for duplicate files in the Windows directory and subdirectories. By creating a Lotus Notes Java Agent I would: - Loop through all the files in the Windows directory and subdirectories - for each file I would calculate a checksum, using the ADLER-32 algorithm in java.util.zip.Adler32 - store the checksum in a HashMap - for every file I would check if the checksum already existed in the HashMap The results: Checked files: 27900 Unique number of files: 20370 [read] Keywords: agent lotus notes java

Making good use of the useless @DocNumber
Wed, Aug 4th 2010 6:00p   Jesper Kiaer
For some reason a long time ago Lotus decided to create a function @DocNumber, which would show the position of the document in a view, like 1.2.2 This was a great idea except that the function returns "something" which can not be further refined or used in the formular language. Meaning it is actually rather useless. Well except on the web. By using a little JavaScript it can be quite useful. Sometimes it can be really nice to have a numbering, indicating how many documents or entries the [read] Keywords: lotus javascript
