It took some time and the domain transfer is not 100% complete, but bleedyellow.com is on it's way from René Winkelmeyer to Mindoo. Our blog is currently configured to be the default website on www.bleedyellow.com We do not have any plans yet for the domain, but did not want to let it expire.

Life sign / Major update for Domino JNA on Github
Fri, Nov 10th 2017 4:25p   Karsten Lehmann
Wow - I haven't written a blog post in the last 9 months! It's just so much easier to write a Tweet than to produce long articles, when I split the week between three customers and my family with two children. Just wanted to let you know that we are alive and kicking and still doing very much Domino related work! :-) Technologies have as always shifted a bit. Most of the time we create pure JavaEE projects now for our customer web apps, developed in Eclipse and not Domino Designer (ok, u

New APIs for Domino JNA project, now available for XPages development
Mon, Jan 16th 2017 8:21a   Karsten Lehmann
It took some time (mainly because I was very busy and my main use case for the project is not XPages), but now the Domino JNA project is available for XPages development. That means that there is an XPages Extensibility API plugin available in the project's release section on Github that can be installed both in Domino Designer and on the Domino R9 server to use the API in your own applications. After installation, the API classes are available in SSJS and Java code including API source c

My latest wish list for the Domino Java API
Thu, Nov 3rd 2016 9:10a   Karsten Lehmann
Last week I sent an email with enhancement ideas for the Domino Java API to IBM development. Most of the stuff listed here (except new @-functions) can be implemented by wrapping existing C API functions or simple copy&paste of already existing code. We already did this using our Domino JNA project, but I thought it would be a good idea to add this functionality to the standard API and provide full platform support. I don't really have unrealistic expectations whether this will ever be

Big update for Domino JNA project on Github
Mon, Jul 11th 2016 9:33p   Karsten Lehmann
Last weekend, I committed a big update for the Domino JNA project on Github. Here is what's new: Note (Document) APIs The last weeks since creating the project, I added basic APIs to work with database notes (documents). The main focus was to be able to read the classic note item value types, e.g. String, Number and Date/Time with single or multiple values per item, handle a few rarely known edge cases (e.g. multiline text values that Domino stores with delimiter between the lines

New on Github: Domino JNA - Cross-platform access to IBM Notes/Domino C API methods from Java
Fri, Apr 8th 2016 5:11p   Karsten Lehmann
I would like to introduce you to a pet project that I have been working on for the last months: Domino JNA - Cross-platform access to IBM Notes/Domino C API methods from Java As you might have already read in this blog in the past, we have been playing with the Domino C API for some time now and found out that you can speed up view reading dramatically when you talk directly to the C API instead of using IBM's Java classes. The C API also provides lots of other functionality for whic

Updated on OpenNTF: Release 1.1 of Open Eclipse Update Site with Mac 64 Bit Client support and other cool stuff
Thu, Mar 3rd 2016 11:23p   Karsten Lehmann
I have updated the OpenNTF project "Open Eclipse Update Site" with release version 1.1 and added the following useful features: added support for the Mac Notes Client with 64 bit new view action to extract selected features as an update site to disk (also available in headless mode via Java agents “(API)” and “(Java-API)“) new view actions to install/uninstall selected features via rcplauncher based deployment, which is used by software distribution systems and should

Notes 9.0.1 64 bit for Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan now available - warning our customers NOT to update for 30+ days!
Tue, Sep 29th 2015 8:30a   Karsten Lehmann
One day before the general availability of Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), IBM released an update for their IBM Notes Client 9.0.1 with 64 bit support: http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?subtype=ca&infotype=an&appname=iSource&supplier=877&letternum=ENUSZP15-0483 Previous versions were using Java 1.6 32 Bit under the hood, which was maintained by Apple for the last 7 years. Since Apple dropped support for Java 1.6 in OS X 10.11, IBM had to update their IBM Mac No

New C API method NIFFindByKeyExtended2 in Domino 9.0 improves view lookups
Fri, Mar 6th 2015 12:48p   Karsten Lehmann
Once again I am digging into the Notes/Domino C API to implement fast and powerful view lookups. What caused it this time was a customer requirement for "Notes Client style keyboard navigation" in web views, meaning that you type a character, press enter and the cursor position should be moved to the relevant area of the view (e.g. where the content in the first sorted view column is greater or equal letter "L"). Using standard Java APIs for this purpose (ViewNavigator.getNextSibling(), unt

Tools we use to build web apps
Sun, Sep 21st 2014 7:50p   Karsten Lehmann
In a recent comment in this blog, Andrew Magerman asked what frameworks I use to build web applications and whether we have looked into Angular. Since the answer got too long for a simple comment and might be interesting for others, I created this blog article. Server side I am using my own regexp based templating system, which simply fills some placeholders in static HTML and JS files and sends them to the browser, e.g. to compute URLs, to insert translated phrases and include content of ot

Status report / collection of web and mobile development frameworks and tools
Fri, Jun 27th 2014 7:49a   Karsten Lehmann
The last post in this blog has been written 6 months ago. Although I have had several ideas for new posts, project work and family life got in the way (our son was born last September). At Mindoo, we have been incredibly busy working on development projects and product prototypes. Some of them are still IBM Domino based with Responsive Web Design using Bootstrap and jQuery or Sencha's ExtJS, others are pure JSF applications using the Primefaces framework. In other projects, we produced E

Now on OpenNTF: Open Eclipse Update Site - based on IBM’s template but with extended functionality
Fri, Dec 6th 2013 5:16p   Karsten Lehmann
I just created a new project on OpenNTF called "Open Eclipse Update Site". The Open Eclipse Update Site database is based on the OpenNTF project "Eclipse Update Site (updatesite.ntf)" from IBM with additional functionality, e.g. Mac Notes Client support (no SWT error messages like in the original template) View action to delete selected features from the database (no need to delete all like in the original template) Support for headless builds (automatic generation of update site, e.g.

Now on OpenNTF: Mindoo XPages2Eclipse - Eclipse APIs for XPiNC applications!
Thu, Nov 28th 2013 5:45p   Karsten Lehmann
I just created a new project on OpenNTF: Mindoo XPages2Eclipse. Our toolkit, which provides extensive Eclipse APIs to XPages developers in the IBM Notes Client (XPiNC), is now available for free! Here is the project description: XPages2Eclipse is a language extension for XPages-development within the Lotus Notes Client Find out how XPages2Eclipse simplifies the development of XPages-applications for the IBM Lotus Notes Client considerably.

New on OpenNTF: Plugin to close XPiNC applications from CSJS code / to detect Notes ID changes
Mon, Sep 9th 2013 8:06p   Karsten Lehmann
There is a new project on OpenNTF that I created a few days ago: Mindoo Xulrunner Prefs.js Management Plugin. It's nothing big, only a small Eclipse plugin that can be installed in the Notes Client to manage the preferences of the Xulrunner engine that renders XPages in the Notes Client (XPiNC). The main purpose for this is to set the property "dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows" to false on a number of machines (the plugin can be deployed via policy). This enables XPages applications to

New on OpenNTF: Geospatial indexing for IBM Notes/Domino data
Tue, Jul 30th 2013 9:11p   Karsten Lehmann
Last weekend I created a new project on OpenNTF.org, which is part of a pretty big "pet project" that I have been working on for several month and that will hopefully be ready for primetime someday. My original plan was to submit this pet project for the last XPages development contest, either in addition to or instead of the Mindoo FTP Server, but the project got bigger and bigger over time - and an FTP server was finally easier to polish and explain than my other idea. This idea has to

XSS security fix in Domino R9 HTTP server may break existing web applications
Mon, Jun 3rd 2013 7:56p   Karsten Lehmann
Last week we noticed that two of our web applications did not work as expected after upgrading our servers to Domino R9. We tracked down the issue and found the problem: In one REST API call, we have a query string parameter that contains a Domino fulltext query to filter the entries of a Notes view. Domino now reported that the query syntax was wrong. The same code had worked in 8.5.3. The reason is that the Domino R9 HTTP server contains a security fix to prevent applications from being v

Quick tip: Fixing Dojo drag and drop issues in a Windows 8 VMWare on the Mac
Thu, Mar 7th 2013 5:33a   Karsten Lehmann
I am currently setting up a new dev environment with Windows 8 and Notes/Domino 9 to work on demos for my Dojo 1.8/AMD session at Entwicklercamp next week. To my surprise, I noticed yesterday, that drag and drop operations on Dojo widgets did not work as expected. For example, I could not drag the splitters of a BorderContainer layout widget and the columns of a LazyTreeGrid could not get resized. It seemed as if mouse events got lost, but I only got that effect in Firefox and Chrome. In IE,

I use DownThemAll for this purpose. You need to be logged in to the website to access the files. Here are the download links: Connect2013_PDFs.html And here is the spreadsheet I u

Fast Notes view reading via Java API:New ViewNavigator cache methods in 8.5.3
Thu, Jan 17th 2013 6:53a   Karsten Lehmann
Preface A posting about new API methods in 8.5.3 may look a bit weird, now that the Notes/Domino R9 beta is already out for one month. I wanted to blog about this topic for one year now, actually since last year's Lotusphere conference, where the new API methods got presented by IBM (in session "AD112 What's new in the IBM Lotus Domino Objects: Version 8.5.3 in Demos"), but could not find the time and have always expected that IBM dev would write a wiki article about it - which they haven
