A lot of things happened since Monday morning. It turned out I was not at all alone in thinking this. So there are some other posts on the subject, much better than my rant. And most importantly you can find Ed Brill's comment under Darren's post. (I tried to sort them chronologically, not 100 % sure I did it right, though) Oliver Busse Paul Withers Darren Duke Volker Weber - reacting to Ed's comment, read the comments here as well Heiko Voigt So we now know IBM will support Domino/Notes unti

Bye bye Domino!
Mon, Aug 22nd 2016 4:42a   Martin Jinoch
TL;DR: My suggestion for every Domino/Notes developer is to run away! First time I was planning to "abandon" Domino as my primary application platform around 2002, when I decided to switch to Java. A decision that has proven to be very wise during last 14 years. First of all learning how things are done elsewhere helped me to get better at developing programs in general. And it helped me to recognize what were weak points of Domino/Notes platform, what were its strong ones and when to use it a

Working with PDF files in XPages apps

I'm just making this quick short note to save myself a few searches next time I'll need this: Do you want to manipulate PDF files, for example to merge them? Use Apache PDFBox. Version 2.0.1 works just fine on Domino, API is well documented and reading PDF files from notes documents is easy - EmbeddedObject has method getInputStream().

Family reunion 2016 (also known as Engage)
Tue, Mar 29th 2016 3:57a   Martin Jinoch
This is starting to be a little old, but after every BLUG/Engage every blogger from the community simply has to - contract is very strict about this :) - write that Theo and Hilde did it again, that Engage was bigger than last year, venue was impressive and event most successful. It's very easy to do so, as it is 100 % true. In previous years you may have noticed, though, that most of the "post-event" blog posts don't mention specific sessions but more the general vibe of the event (and tha

#WinterInSpain My "digital nomad" experience
Fri, Mar 4th 2016 1:08p   Martin Jinoch
My wife and I are not the biggest fans of winter, especially version of it that we usually have in Prague. Every year we plan our vacation to cover as much winter time as possible. Last year we spent 7 weeks in Nicaragua and at the end of our stay we felt we hit the limit of how long we can/want be abroad and NOT doing anything else than travelling. Therefore we've decided to try another approach. Digital nomad, you say? This winter "adventure" started in the middle of December, when we fle

Let's Encrypt certificates and BlackBerry
Mon, Feb 15th 2016 5:00a   Martin Jinoch
You may have heard about Let's Encrypt. If not, go there and check it. You can have SSL certificates for your servers for free, so there is now no excuse for not using https by default. But Let's Encrypt certificates are not yet trusted in all browsers/systems. And one of those is my beloved BlackBerry OS 10. Here comes the good news: there is a way to fix it! Go to https://letsencrypt.org/certificates/ and download https://letsencrypt.org/certs/isrgrootx1.pem and https://letsencrypt.org/certs

Plugins disabled in DDE after installing 9.0.1 FP5IF1
Sat, Dec 26th 2015 8:00a   Martin Jinoch
You may already have 9.0.1FP5 or better FP5IF1 installed. If Designer is part of your installation, chances are all your plugins in DDE got disabled. I mean the plugins you have installed to DDE, such as newer version of Extension Library or OpenNTF Domino API. Solution seems to be simple: in Designer go to File - Application - Application management, expand the second entry and there you should see list of user installed plugins. You can select them all and then Enable them. Or simply enable o

IBM Champion for 2016
Thu, Dec 3rd 2015 9:46a   Martin Jinoch
I finally have some more time to write blogpost about thing that has made me very happy recently. Thanks to all of you who have nominated me and all people involved in final decision my IBM Champion status has been extended for the next year! Being awarded for something I love to do is very nice, right? I mean I was making contributions to the community before I was awarded. I never did it because I wanted to be awarded. But it feels good to be officially recognized, to know people are appreci

Conferences. Conferences? Conferences!
Mon, Nov 30th 2015 6:30a   Martin Jinoch
You may know that I'm involved in organizing Social Connections and SUTOL conferences. I do love working with both teams to make those events happen. It's never ending work, lots of hours, lots of effort and lots of fun. But during the events I don't (none of the organizers) have time to enjoy it. So what we need is the feedback from attendees, speakers, sponsors and pretty much everybody else involved. And feedback is sometimes not only positive, because a) mistakes happen and b) you can nev
