You may have noticed that there is new project available on OpenNTF.org site. It is called SmartNSF (https://openntf.org/main.nsf/project.xsp?r=project/SmartNSF/summary) and it aims to help developers build REST services on top of the Domino databases. Unlike other approaches I am aware of, this project adds Designer integration and smart definition of routes, data retrieval strategies and returned values in one place. And this definition is made using Groovy syntax. How cool is that?:-) You can implement business logic there as well.

First beta version was released little over two weeks ago. Most of the work on the project is done by Christian Guedemann.

Beta 2 has been recently released (with a little help from me) with these new features:

  • It now supports handling of attachments, yet this is still in experimental stage
  • New paged strategies have been added, so you can specify start position and count of returned documents
  • SELECT_DOCUMENTS_BY_SEARCH_FT and SELECT_DOCUMENTS_BY_SEARCH_FT_PAGED strategies support both GET and POST methods
  • Partial documentation is available at https://wiki.openntf.org/display/XRAPI/How-to+articles

I will be updating the documentation this week to make it up to date with Beta 2 features.

Please test the new release and let us know at https://jira.openntf.org/projects/XRAPI/issues if - or should I say when? - you find any bugs. Or if you miss some features.

What's in the pipeline for next beta? Things such as generation of OpenAPI .yaml file for use with Swagger, handling for response and response to response documents or code assistance in Designer.
Stay tuned!

What to expect in upcoming SmartNSF Beta 3 release?

Changes We've decided to rename strategies to make the names shorter, yet still descriptive enough. We've basically removed all SELECT_ and ALL_ parts of the names. For example SELECT_ALL_DOCUMENTS_FROM_VIEW is from now on DOCUMENTS_FROM_VIEW. Extending the life of your keyboard is just a positive side effect of this change. Bug fixes Date format of returned DATETIME items was broken, so we fixed it. Bigly! ARRAY_OF_DOUBLE data type was returning array of nulls instead of array of actual doubl

Re: Domino REST performance analysis

Csaba Kiss has published blogpost http://xpagexplorer.org/domino-rest-performance-analysis/ about his findings regarding performance of various REST technologies available on Domino now. Just a couple of remarks: use case for reading 10000 documents at once is probably very far from most real world scenarios some may argue ReadViewEntries method is not REST service per se. And it is a core function deep in the HTTP server, probably developed in C. That's something we can't beat I guess SmartN

Get ready for Java 8 in Domino/Notes
Mon, Feb 6th 2017 10:42a   Martin Jinoch
Java 8 is coming to Domino/Notes. First just runtime environment for server and client in FP8 and later this year hopefully to Designer as well. That will be huge improvement for developers, because it means - apart from Java 8 new features - we'll get newer Eclipse, newer OSGi etc. Yay! At the same time I feel like admins are not going to be that happy. Change of Java runtime from 6 to 8 should - in theory - be safe. Chances are, however, some stuff will be broken. A really really thorough te

IBM Champions 2017 - welcoming new Czech one!
Thu, Dec 15th 2016 8:39p   Martin Jinoch
I am very very happy that my friend and real yellowbleeder Jan Krejcárek has been named IBM Champion in ICS for 2017. He is the third one from Czech Republic (in ICS) and it is a well deserved achievement. I do not have any real statistics (apart from those I am just making up), but I think we might be the best in "champion per capita" ratio. There might be some smaller country though, I really should check it before writing it in the blogpost. But we have post-fact era after all :-) Thanks

[In Czech] GeeCON 2016 - Praha
Mon, Oct 24th 2016 4:16a   Martin Jinoch
Na úvod je asi vhodné uvést, že s organizováním a přednášením na konferencích nějaké zkušenosti mám a ačkoliv se v následujících řádcích někde vyjadřuji kriticky, tak celkově byl GeeCON výborně zvládnutý a přes hodně slušnou návštěvnost jsem nikde nezaznamenal výraznější problémy. Konečně se mi zadařilo mít čas zajít na GeeCON. A navíc díky Romanu Pichlíkovi z CZ Podcastu jsem měl volný vstup, takže dokonalá win-win situace. O to více, že js

The 8th SUTOL Technical Conference: Nov 10-11, 2016, Prague
Thu, Oct 13th 2016 3:36a   Martin Jinoch
SUTOL (Czech Lotus User Group) has published agenda for its annual event in Prague. I think the lineup of speakers is great - with one exception :) - and conference will be full of interesting information and cool technologies. After successful last year's event we are doing it again in English, day and a half instead of one day, with three tracks instead of two. You can find additional info about the event on SUTOL website. I really do hope to meet as many of you as possible in Prague on Nove

Domino/Notes support extended to (at least) 2021
Tue, Sep 13th 2016 9:10a   Martin Jinoch
IBM has officially announced that it will support IBM Domino/Notes 9.0.1 until September 2021. Although the announcement does not specifically say so, IBM was communicating it as AT LEAST until 2021. Which is good news, regardless if your plan is to migrate off the platform or to stay there. FixPack 7 for 9.0.1 is now in Stage 4: Gold Build and list of fixes now has 81 entries (well those two regarding Java 6 are technically the same change, so 80). Still no sign of Java 8 being added in FP7 an

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
