Guo Yi and Chen Yang Jun have prototyped
an extension to the import
and export tool. At some point
OpenNTF used this tool to allow importing XPages custom controls into Designer
(see old video).
There were a couple of issues with this tool though that the new prototype
tries to address.
The old version wasn't that visible
in Designer. The new version can be launched via right clicking on an NSF
project. The old version also used a browser to display the controls, the
new one a native Eclipse UI. Additionally the flow in the old version was
not natural and not all files/design elements were imported (e.g. no custom
Below are some screenshots. Since Guo
Yi and Chen Yang Jun work on this in their spare time feedback from you
would help to get this finished. I'd think this would be a great addition
to OpenNTF and provide a lot of value, now that we have a critical number
of open source controls.

2000 XPages Questions on StackOverflow
Wed, Feb 19th 2014 12:10a Niklas Heidloff What a great story. Two
years ago the XPages community
decided to use StackOverflow for XPages related specific questions and
answers. Since then 2000 questions have been asked and 84% of them have
been marked as answered.
One advantage of StackOverflow is that
XPages developers can get help from other developers who might not even
know anything about XPages. For example questions about Java are often

nice [read] Keywords: xpages community
