Wed, Oct 21st 2015 5:56a Kenio Carvalho
This is not a part of the series I had planned. But after I talked about the blog posts from Toby Samples about using JAX-RS for HTTP Servlets to provide more secure and tailored REST access to an NSF, I was conscious that this begged the question about how to use OpenNTF Domino API in such a servlet application.

A Java Rite of Passage|
Mon, Oct 19th 2015 10:29a Kenio Carvalho
The last couple of weeks has been a roller coaster of fun in regards to a work application and in regards to my extracurricular development activities. Suffice it to say, things are much improved and what follows is what I hope something that others can learn from, though a simple Google search makes me realize that I’m not only not the first, but bound to not be the last, to make the same mistake in Java development.

Fri, Oct 4th 2013 11:57a Kenio Carvalho
Because of changes to Websphere Application Server architecture, it is not possible to perform a straight migration from Sametime 8.5.x (based on Websphere 7.0.0) to Sametime 9 (based on Websphere 8.5.5).
