Using Git with Domino Designer
martin jinoch    

I have recently moved all my notes templates to a Git repository. Well, not all of them, just those I currently have on my disk. And there are in fact several Git repositories they are now in.

When IBM announced version of Notes Client based on Eclipse one of the first things I wondered was 'will I be able to use version control system with Notes, at last?'. The answer was 'No'. And it didn't make me happy, because once you have the opportunity to use even the old CVS in some project, it just feels like having only one hand if you can't in another project.
When IBM posted Source Control Enablement for Designer project on OpenNTF.org site, I was already kind of spoilt by Git. Of course I installed and tried Source Control Enablement project. But I just briefly tested to put NSF into SVN repository and then I did a svn checkout on a different computer. Cool! But what about Git? I quickly found out that EGit project for Eclipse is not working with Domino Designer and that was it.

Luckily Nathan T. Freeman did not stop at that point and made several modifications to EGit to make it work with Domino Designer. So go grab it from OpenNTF.org and welcome to the world of version control, branching, backporting and team development.

Fall - time of the conferences and hard work
Tue, Sep 30th 2014 12:10p   Martin Jinoch
For me the end of the summer means increased number of projects I'm involved in. To finish all of them until the end of the year - that is something I've never managed to achieve. This year seems to be a bit different. Hopefully. Up until now I've resisted to say yes for too many of "just a small 10 mandays work" (usually ending up as 50 MD). One of the reasons is that after Social Connections VI in Prague I'm part of the team preparing the next event - Social Connections VII in Stockholm. [read] Keywords: connections lotus

Social Connection VI
Fri, Jun 20th 2014 6:10a   Martin Jinoch
Well, that was really great experience to be part of the team organizing Social Connection VI conference in Prague. Our team was working hard to make it happen. All other members were also presenting, which I can only admire. I can not imagine myself doing all that work AND preparing for the session(s) as well. Let alone being able to deliver it. After spending some time at the registration booth I'm a bit afraid that my new nickname "registration booth babe" will be with me for some time. It [read] Keywords: connections lotus twitter

Engage 2014
Fri, Mar 21st 2014 10:15a   Martin Jinoch
In the beginning of this week I've attended the best European "Lotus related" conference called now Engage, up until last year named BLUG. For the first time it has taken place outside of Belgium in a nice city called Breda located one hour (by fast train) from Amsterdam. Venue was very also interesting - Chassé Theater. There is no need to point out that organization of the conference was fantastic, because that is automatically assumed when you know who is organizing it - Theo Heselmans.

Speaking at BLUG...I mean ENGAGE
Sat, Mar 15th 2014 1:11p   Martin Jinoch
Tomorrow morning I'll be heading to the airport to catch flight to Amsterdam and then via train to Breda to attend ENGAGE conference (it used to be called BLUG). I'm always looking forward to being there. I hope to meet a lot of old friends and even more new ones. I persuaded a couple of Lotus-positive friends to come this year, so be prepared for more Czech geeks :-) This is my second time as a speaker on this event so I'm even more excited to go there.

Automatic building of NSF from (git) repository
Thu, Feb 6th 2014 8:49a   Martin Jinoch
I finally had some time to try new "experimental" feature that has been added to IBM Notes in 9.0.1 release. And it is the ability to automatically take repository containing so called on-disk project and build NSF out of it. Which is something you probably do daily, but you have to do it manually in Designer. After couple of tweets about this matter Jonathan Roche from IBM offered me help in case I have any problems. I always have problems ;-) But this was easy... What was missing in slides f [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes application database development twitter

2014
Thu, Jan 23rd 2014 7:08a   Martin Jinoch
This year's last digit is going to be the first digit of my age. And that makes me think a lot. Because I always considered age as something not important. I have friends of all ages and have never really cared about how old is a person I'm dealing with. But since my very good friend died 5 years ago and my father died nearly 2 years ago, I started to be aware of age a bit. I still feel like being in my late twenties except I no longer can drink all night and be ready next morning. Nope, it t [read] Keywords: domino notes xpages applications development java openntf

Domino Designer and .git folder mystery
Wed, May 1st 2013 8:36a   Martin Jinoch
Twitter conversation about version control has brought me to the debate about .git folder appearing in NSF file and how to avoid having it there. I remember seeing one NSF file with .git folder in it a while ago and I've deleted it from NSF without any consequences. NSF is still fine, git repository it is connected to as well. But Cameron Gregor (and probably Sean Cull too) had different experience. Cameron was kind enough to "record" how this happens on his computer. When I was reproducing [read] Keywords: domino openntf twitter

BLUG 2013
Mon, Mar 25th 2013 2:12p   Martin Jinoch
I am writing this at Brussels airport on Sunday afternoon waiting for evening flight back to Prague. Since Wednesday when we came to Leuven to attend BLUG 2013, weather got really bad and although we have March 24 whole Brussels (and Antwerpen and I am sure more other places) are covered by snow and it is freezing out there. Yet even this really unpleasant ending could not spoil great feeling I have about this year's BLUG. In fact all previous BLUGs as well. This was my third. First one in 2011 [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes xpages community development podcast twitter

Call doc.closeMIMEEntities after touching doc.getMIMEEntity
Tue, Jan 22nd 2013 6:14a   Martin Jinoch
Another stupid mistake has taken a lot of my time last week. I developed a small library to provide function(s) to move attachments from rich text fields to separate db (nsf or some other). This function was supposed to be part of bigger process, so saving of document being processed was meant to happen in other code. That is why I had not tested what doc.save() would do. My tests were just checking destination db for created records containing moved files. Other part of process was developed by [read] Keywords: domino ibm rich text xpages bug development java server

Dynamic binding of fields bug?
Mon, Jan 21st 2013 3:32a   Martin Jinoch
I was developing very simple XPages component recently and because it was basically loop through a list of field names (and the task was to show something for each of them) I have used repeat control and inside of it there was custom control with properties such as fieldName (String), label (String), isRequired (boolean) and so on. In the custom control I was binding fileDownload and fileUpload controls (based on read/edit mode) to document field via EL as "document1[compositeData.fieldName]" [read] Keywords: notes xpages bug properties
