At the Lotusphere 2012 Opening General Session (OGS) and throughout the conference IBM showed the next version of IBM Connections (to be called IBM Connections 4.0?). My first impression of the next release of IBM Connections is that it looks really, really great! Among many things it features exciting new elements such as activity streams, social mail and embedded apps (using open standards such as Activity Streams and OpenSocial gadgets).
Embedded apps for activity streams can be created using e.g. XPages. An embedded app makes it possible for the user to take action directly from the invidual post in the activity stream (without leaving IBM Connections).
The integrated mail and calendar of IBM Connections (social mail) will support Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange as backend mail servers. This is an interesting move that makes the underlying mail server in use irrelevant to the IBM Connections deployment.
IBM Connections 4 also includes community metrics (to track e.g. adoption rates), optional realtime group video chat using a plugin from Polycom, ECM library integration and realtime co-authoring of documents, presentations and spreadsheets using IBM Docs (IBM Docs is currently in beta on IBM Greenhouse).

Using an existing SSL certificate on IBM Domino
Thu, May 2nd 2013 2:22p Per Henrik Lausten A customer of mine had an existing wild card SSL certificate running on IIS. They wanted to use this wild card SSL certificate for their IBM Domino server.
I had all the SSL certificate files available (the trusted root CA, the certificate and the private key). So I quickly found the guide from Gab Davis and did something similar: I created a key ring using the Server Certificate application on the Domino server and installed the trusted root certificate into the key ring. I then opened the ke [read] Keywords: domino
