Last Call for Passengers who want to attend the IBM ICS Developer Competition 2016

Dear Friends Its so amazing to see that over 10 Teams have registered to this "long term" competition. This means that we have so far over 25 participant. This is very promising! I had also the chance to see the topics, each team has chosen, but my lips are sealed with a BIG SMILE! But not only a BIG SMILE, also some tears: The WebGate Team can not attend, because we have a conflict of Interest. As Chairman of OpenNTF, Judge in the Contest and CTO of WebGate, this would be unfair

For this month's project spotlight, I wanted to highlight error logging. Firstly, it's worth making a clear distinction, that the projects on OpenNTF help with error logging. But error handling is a completely different topic and no framework, regardless of the language, can ensure errors are appropriately handled for custom applications. Error handling comes down to managing the process in which the error occurs in a way that best supports the user and application, to ensure quality and

Yes you should really think about participating the "IBM Collaboration Solution Developer Competition 2016". It will be fun and a real good experience. Before I was the Chairman of OpenNTF, I had the chance to build myWebGate with our Development staff. We where a gang of 6 team members, but if you think 6 Developers... you would be wrong.

World IP Day
Tue, Apr 26th 2016 10:05a   Paul Withers
Earlier today I came across a tweet saying that today is World IP Day. Over the last year we've been looking at the role of OpenNTF, looking at what Apache and Eclipse offer and considering how the changes in personal websites and cloud source control repositories like GitHub and BitBucket offer. These days there are a host of ways open source projects can be made available to the public. But one of the key differentiators we identified that OpenNTF provides is IP clearance of projects.

This will affect all the tools of the Atlassian Suite. Expect that this services could be down for a short period. We will inform you when all maintenance tasks has been done. Have fun Christian

A search of OpenNTF projects for the term JSON will return a number of projects over a long period of time. JSON has long been a key data interchange format, being language independent and not requiring a fixed agreed schema. It is this reason in particular that has led to it overtaking SOAP as a data transfer mechanism, enabling microservices to be built and further developed without breaking existing interactions. Anything that delivers JSON data can of course be access via (Client-Side

Thank you to both contributors and consumers for your feedback to the recent survey.

The PERFECT Open Source Project
Sun, Mar 27th 2016 4:44p   Christian Guedemann
OpenNTF has during the last year done a lot of research and discussions to figure out what is the PERFECT Open Source Project. Based on our research, we have changed the way we look at Open Source. The result is a complete new Process for our Projects. But let us start with a definition about the PERFECT Open Source Project: Open Source … Identifies a problem that needs to be solved, by creating a community of people / companies that have a vested interest in solving the problem.

OpenNTF is a Community across all time zones and countries. Our main platform for communication inside OpenNTF is openntf.slack.org.

But not only the web presence, we have also introduced the tools from Atlassianto manage and control all our open source projects.

Fellow OpenNTF Members, Contributor, Friends and Enthusiasts This year was in the sign and mood of building the infrastructure for OpenNFT V 2.0. We have integrated the Atlassian Tools in our infrastructure to support our new process. As one of the final steps, we are now activating a dedicated SonarQube for OpenNTF Projects. But more on this on a later blog post. As we started the year with infrastructure, we will also end the year. One of my wishes for OpenNTF was to have all our site pr

Bootstrap 4 is coming to XPages

Just over a year ago the Bootstrap4XPages project was subsumed as part of the XPages Extension Library on OpenNTF. Bootstrap is a world-leading framework for building responsive web applications that play well across the gamut of modern computing devices, from phone to tablet to the plain ol’ PC desktop. The Bootstrap framework has integrated well with XPages and is probably the most popular choice amongst XPages developers when building application front-ends today. This post is all about

You wanna build a community, take your time, bring people together and invest some money in beer. And be aware the community will not grow deeper with more beer. So don't let them get drunk. In the last 12 month did we try this. We spent money to be the beer sponsor for some major events. We also organized the Notes 25 Year anniversary at IBM Connected 2015 together with Socialbiz.UG and the IBM Champions Program. Yes we brought people together! But what's next.

XLogback is the OSGi plugin implementation of Logback Project for Domino environments. Logback has been started by Ceki Gulcu as an unofficial successor of Log4J.

This week a new release of XPages OpenLog Logger was released. In the blog post about it today, I made a request for other developers to get involved. As I mentioned, it's not because of any imminent or planned intention to step aside from the project. Instead it's part of an ongoing plan for improved governance of projects on OpenNTF - giving less risk of a project being left without a chef to take it forward, providing more breadth for supporting bugs and feature requests, and providing more

Since 8.5.2, Domino Designer has allowed integration with Eclipse's source control functionality.

But one of the issues has always been that some design elements store metadata like last accessed date which changes even when no material changes have
