Git reflog to the rescue

Earlier today while slaving away on my code I did some wizard-like changes and solved an issue I had been having with packaging Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) add-ins for Microsoft Outlook. It was soooo cool that I just had to record a video on it as it involved a number of steps and it would be easier to record a video than describing it in text. So I commited my changes and reverted to an easier commit without thinking. And boom!! All my changes was gone - including some stuff I actuall

Part 5 was about extensions/apps on-premises and this - probably final post - will be about extensions for IBM Connections Cloud. There are different ways to extend IBM Connections Cloud - one is to add links to the app menu and another is to add actual UI extensions to the applications within IBM Connections. This post is about the latter (although the observations about the administration UI applies to both). To get it out of the way from the beginning I might as well say it flat out. IBM has

Part 1 was about API's and SPI's, part 2 about Mobile, part 3 about security and "coherent-ness". This part will be about apps/extensions this time moving to on-premises. For on-premises the extension model for IBM Connections is iWidgets and OpenSocial gadgets. You can extend Profiles, Communities and Homepage. OpenSocial is only supported in Homepage. IMO the former two (Profiles and Communities) are probably the ones mostly extended using widgets. Unfortunately these also use the oldest

While previous posts in this series has been about specific parts of the IBM Connections platform this is a bit more generic setting the stage for the next two ports. The next two posts are about extensions/apps for IBM Connections on-premises and in the cloud. Setting the stage for this is talking about the difference scenarios for extensions and what they would like to to and what capabilities they would need from the platform (IBM Connections). In my mind when you provide a platform that al

While part 2 was about IBM Connections Mobile this post will be about security and the "coherent-ness" of the platform. IBM Connections runs/builds on IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) and much of the functionality is delegated to the underlying application server. Delegated responsibility is topics ranging from messaging to SMTP transport to database access and security. WAS also handles the clustering and fault tolerance and does it very well. Being built on WAS is a good thing for s

Developing plugins for IBM Notes on Mac

I've been developing plugins for IBM Notes on Mac for years now but never really got around to sharing the steps on the blog. The below steps - in very crude form - works with Java 8 on Mac OS El Capitan (v. 10.11) using IBM Notes 9.0.1. The below sections are additions to the regular steps on creating a target platform documented otherwise on this blog Main-tab Run a product: com.ibm.notes.branding.notes Execution Envionment: JavaSE-1.6 Arguments-tab Program arguments: -personality com.i

I'm cleaning out my drafts folder and stumbled unto this one I never posted. The steps has changed slightly after IBM Notes 9.0.1 for Mac was released as that release works fine with the never JVM's for the Mac. Actually there are very few steps you need to do to make the code work. To complete a standard console app that prints the username from the current session to stdout do the following: Write the code - could be something like this: import lotus.domino.NotesFactory; import lotus.domino

Part 1 was about API's and SPI's - this part will be about widgets or apps as IBM likes to call them now. There are big differences between how widgets / apps works for on-premises, cloud and on Mobile. Let us starts with Mobile as it's the quickest one to address but also the most depressing... Besides adding menu items to the IBM Connections mobile app menu (the one that slides in from the left) and having the content load in an embedded browser control there is no support for widgets / a

IBM Connections has been on the market for a lot of time now and has always been a real strong player when it comes to application development. I thought it was time to review where we are application development wise over what will probably be a couple of posts. First off is API's... IBM Connections is and has always been strong from the point of API's - there is an API for almost all areas of the product and always has. I think IBM Connections was the first product (maybe still the only on
