"Are you available for XPages training for beginners?" was the question asked recently. I am not making this up. I really am not. My first reaction (after several seconds - or perhaps minutes - of total suprise) was: "Whaaat? Why would anybody for crying out loud now START to learn XPages?" Then we talked a bit about dates and after realizing I can only do it in September I was sure they won't want me to do it anymore. To my even bigger surprise they came back. And it got even better today: can you do follow-up advanced training?

I still think that it is some elaborate practical joke from Sutol guys. After several years of presenting sessions about modern ways of development in Domino, doing this would make total sense. I keep telling Sutol audience, that if they want to stay competitive, they need to move on or at least start heavily using Java, ODA, REST etc. in Domino apps. That there is no future for Notes Client applications.

Of course, if you already know XPages, there may be projects where using them makes total sense. But to start with them now?? Planning to invest a lot of money in training? I guess (if this is real) that they must be some big companies/government bureaus. Who else could afford ignoring the reality and live deep in the past?

Moral of the story? There's none. If time permits I'll do the training, I want to see those people and ask them why. And to see they faces when I open up the training with telling them they should run away :-)

SmartNSF is in Beta 5

In case you've missed Christian's latest release of SmartNSF, here is the link . Important addition is the Custom strategy, that allows you to define your own class to process the requests coming via route defined in SmartNSF, such as router.GET("info") { strategy(CUSTOM) { javaClass "org.openntf.rest.MyCustomStrategy" } } and your class needs to implement CustomRestHandler interface package org.openntf.rest; class MyCustomStrategy implements CustomRestHandler { public void process

I have bad case of FOMO this week
Wed, May 31st 2017 8:37a   Martin Jinoch
This week hosts two events I would love to attend: DNUG 44 in Berlin and Social Connections 11 in Chicago. Being part of the team organizing an event and then not be able to go to the event sucks. Big time. With the rest of the team already in Chicago (and asleep now) or en route there, our usual chat channels are quiet this morning. That feels strange. I keep checking my internet connection if it is working. Seems to be ok. At DNUG IBM has just announced acquisition of XCC! Congratulations to

I think I can call it a tradition now, as I every year since 2011 travel to Belgium (or Netherlands) to attend and sometimes even to speak at Engage (formerly BLUG) user group event. This year the latter applies. Christian Guedemann and I will be presenting SmartNSF (https://wiki.openntf.org/display/XRAPI/SmartNSF) and its role in application modernization "movement". The session is scheduled for Monday, May 8 from 11:45 to 12:30 in room D. Gorilla. Looking forward to meeting yellowverse peop

What to expect in upcoming SmartNSF Beta 3 release?
Mon, Mar 20th 2017 11:35a   Martin Jinoch
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
Wed, Mar 15th 2017 7:18a   Martin Jinoch
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
