Hi Everyone. I recently found a way to have links in the Application Layout that comes with the Xpages Extension Library, to open in their own Window if you so wish. You can see a working example of this on my Xpages Showcase. Below I explain how I achieved this.
Let’s say you created a Footer Link in the Properties of the Application Layout Custom Control called “My Page“, and the href parameter is “http://www.mypage.com“, it would look something like this:
This will work perfectly, except that it will open the URL in the current window, overwriting your Xpage.
1. Make sure that the href property is empty. Otherwise it will take preference over the onClick property.
And that’s it. I hope this all made sense. Until next time….Happy Coding.

Sun, Aug 3rd 2014 1:49p John Jardin This is a short video series that I’m planning for the very near future, on how to get the Bluemix Quickstart Push Sample Project running on your Apple devices.
Purpose of this Tutorial
While the Bluemix team do well to make these sample projects as easy to implement as possible and provide the supporting documentation and instructions, this process is quite daunting from my experience.

Thu, Jun 19th 2014 8:41a John Jardin In the following Node.js Tutorial provided on the IBM Bluemix Cloud environment, you get asked to log in to Bluemix via cf (Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface) using the following command:

TIP: Create global batch files for use in Terminal
Thu, Jun 12th 2014 7:44a John Jardin I’m slowly but surely becoming a huge fan of running my development workflows through Terminal on my Mac, especially in the case of mobile development using Appcelerator Titanium. This is a quick tip to show you how to group terminal commands into batch files and have these batch files accessible anywhere when working in Terminal.
