Top Smartphone zum kleinen Preis
Thu, Nov 12th 2015 2:56p   Ralf Petter
Da mein Smartphone, dass mir die letzten Jahre gute Dienste geleistet hat mittlerweile schon ziemlich in die Jahre gekommen ist, war die Zeit reif für eine Neuanschaffung. Sehr lange habe ich mit einem Motorola Moto G 3 geliebäugelt, da ich die Vorgängermodelle schon für meine Frau und meine Tochter besorgt hatte. Das einzige Problem ist, dass das Moto G der 3. Generation leider etwas teurer geworden ist und schon stark an meiner Preisgrenze von 200 EUR für ein Smartphone kratzt. Deshalb ha

Erste Starface Module laufen bereits
Thu, Sep 24th 2015 10:00a   Ralf Petter
Die ersten Starfacemodule die ich im Modulcreator Workshop in Wien gebaut habe laufen schon. Der Modulcreator ist wirklich ein sehr mächtiges Tool und ein absolutes Alleinstellungsmerkmal der Starface Telefonanlage im Vergleich zu anderen Anbietern die in diesem Bereich eigentlich gar nichts bieten. Mit wenigen Clicks kann man sich einfache Anwendungen zusammenklicken. Vom einfachen Telefonmenü bis zu komplizierten Callhandlings ist hier alles möglich. Natürlich sind Programmierkenntnisse vo

Tue, Sep 22nd 2015 1:46p   Ralf Petter
Übermorgen Donnerstag bin ich mit meinem Kollegen beim Starface Modulcreator Workshop in Wien. Bin wirklich schon sehr gespannt, welche neuen Möglichkeiten sich für uns durch die Erstellung von Modulen in der Starface ergeben. Eventuell lassen sich damit ja einige Einschränkungen die wir derzeit bei den iQueues haben elegant umschiffen. Meine ersten Experimente mit dem Modulcreator waren auf jeden Fall schon einmal sehr vielversprechend. Ich denke es wird dann sicher auch ein paar Posts zu

The Document Spy learns two new tricks
Sat, Sep 19th 2015 2:44p   Ralf Petter
Today i have uploaded Version 1.3 of the Document Spy for the IBM Notes client. The new version brings two great new features: A simple but powerful filter to only show the rows which are useful for your problem. Just type in the filter value in the text box above the item table and the items in the document will be filtered. With the second feature you can select some rows in the table and then activate a special filter in the context menu of the table to only show the selected rows. You

Performanceprobleme bei der An und Abmeldung an einer Starfacegruppe mittels UCI
Sat, Sep 19th 2015 4:05a   Ralf Petter
Bei uns in der Firma verwenden wir im Verkauf das iQueue Feature der Starface, das eine automatische Verteilung von Anrufern an verschiedene Verkaufsmitarbeiter erlaubt. Eine wichtige Funktion bei einer solchen Lösung ist das An und Abmelden der Verkaufsagenten an den diversen iQueues. Um es unseren Benutzern so leicht wie möglich zu machen, haben wir die An und Abmeldung in unseren Notes basierten CTI Client integriert. Der Benutzer kann sich mit einem Mausklick in mehreren iQueues An und Abm

Herunterladen von Dateien von der Starface mittels Winscp
Sat, Sep 12th 2015 5:22a   Ralf Petter
Oft ist es ziemlich unpraktisch die oft recht umfangreichen Logdateien der Starface auf der Commandline zu analysieren, vor allem wenn man nicht der absolute Linux Crack ist. Da ist es natürlich praktisch, wenn man einen grafischen Client zur Hand hat mit dem man sich einfach Logfiles von der Starface herunterladen kann und diese dann bequem auf seinem Windows Client analysieren kann. Einen solchen möchte ich euch heute mit WinSCP vorstellen. WinSCP ist ein extrem mächtiges aber trotzdem komp

Tips & Tricks für die Starface Postgresql Datenbank

Da wir immer noch relativ große Probleme mit der Performance unserer Starface haben möchte ich mich mal ein wenig in die Postgresql Datenbank die von der Starface verwendet wird einarbeiten, deshalb habe ich mir hier einen Blogeintrag gemacht in dem ich die wichtigsten Commands und Tricks für die Arbeit mit der Postgresql Datenbank von Starface zusammentrage: Alle Arbeiten mit der Datenbank kann man von der Command line von der Starface Telefonanlage ausführen.

Flüchtlinge wie kann man helfen, wenn man nicht selber direkt helfen kann.
Sat, Sep 5th 2015 5:02a   Ralf Petter
Nicht jeder ist in der Lage Flüchtlingen die derzeit in großer Not sind direkt zu helfen, sei es mit Sachspenden oder direkt vor Ort NGO's bei Ihrer Arbeit zu unterstützen. Eine Möglichkeit die aber jeder hat, ist die NGO's die derzeit selbst weit über Ihre Kapazitäten belastet werden, mit einer Geldspende bei Ihrer Hilfe zu unterstützen. Natürlich gibt es Unmengen an NGO's die man unterstützten kann, deshalb möchte ich hier mal die meiner Meinung nach Seriösesten anführen.Wenn je

Remove forward or copy protection of a mail with Document Spy
Tue, Aug 18th 2015 8:09a   Ralf Petter
Sometimes i get e-mails from very nice users which thinks that there mails are so super confidential, that the set the $KeepPrivate flag on their mail. Every time you want to do something like forward, print or even copy paste with such a mail you will get the error message that this is not allowed. Fortunately with the mighty Document Spy this is very easy to solve. Open the Document Spy in the sidebar and select the mail in the UI. Search for the field "$KeepPrivate" in the Document Spy t

Create a Heapdump of the JVM running the Notes standard client
Tue, Aug 18th 2015 2:39a   Ralf Petter
Normally the Garbage Collection of the JVM works without problems, but sometimes caused by programming mistakes the Garbage Collector can not free heap memory and the heap grows and grows till an OutOfMemory Exception is thrown. The best way to find such problems is to use a Heap Analyzer like Eclipse MAT. Before you can use the Heap Analyzer you have to get a heap dump from Notes with these simple steps. Open a command lineChange the current directory to the frameworkrcp directory in your note

How to determine which version of a plugin is active in a Notes installation
Mon, Aug 17th 2015 2:58a   Ralf Petter
Lazlo Nemes has asked me the question how to determine the version of the Document spy which is installed in the IBM Notes client. This is very easy. Simply go to Help->About IBM Notes. Click Plug-in Details to open the list of all installed plugins. You get an list of all installed plugins with detailed version information's. To find the plugins i have provided sort the list with a click on the provider column header and scroll down to "Ralf M Petter"

How to use the new snapshot functionality in the document spy to reverse engineer features in Notes
Sun, Aug 16th 2015 12:28p   Ralf Petter
Today i want to show you how the new snapshot feature in the Document Spy can help you to understand how features in Notes works and how you can re implement such features in your own apps. As an example i show you which fields of an e-mail changes when you set a follow up flag on this particular mail. The first step is open the Document Spy in the sidebar view and select the e-mail you want to use for your analysis. All fields of the e-mail will be shown in the document spy. Create a snapshot

I have got no bug reports for Document Spy 1.2.0 Beta so i have removed the Beta tag from this version and release it as the Production release of this version. If you have already downloaded the Beta there is no need to reinstall it, because the final version is 100% identical to the Beta version.

Drag & Drop install of widgets does not work with new Microsoft Edge browser
Wed, Aug 5th 2015 6:26a   Ralf Petter
A user from France sent me a bug report, that the installation of widgets like the Document Spy does not work when you drag and drop the widget from Microsoft Edge browser to the My widget sidebar panel of IBM Notes. (You can drag the link, but nothing happens when you drop it) As a workaround you can use Firefox or Chrome which works on Windows 10 without problems. In the moment i do not have a Windows 10 installation to analyze this problem, but i hope that i will get a Windows 10 machine soo

New Beta Version of the Document Spy available
Mon, Aug 3rd 2015 2:54p   Ralf Petter
Last weekend the weather was not so nice in Grundlsee and so i decided to code a new feature for the document Spy. It enables the document spy to create snapshots of documents and then compare this snapshot with changes have been made to the document since the snapshot was captured. For example i can take a snapshot of a mail and then set the follow-up flag in the mail ui. The Document spy will then show me which fields in the document has been changed from this action. This is very handy to rev

Gut gemacht Microsoft

Ja Microsoft das habt Ihr wirklich wieder gut gemacht. Ein Upgradeprogramm auf Windows 10, dass 16 Megabyte groß ist und das einzige was es mir sagen kann wenn ich es auf einem ganz gewöhnlichen Windows 7 laufen lasse ist: Wirklich starke Leistung wenn man bedenkt, dass das komplette Windows 3.1 ein kleinerer Download war.

I have discovered a bug in the Document Spy which prevent the widget from loading a document. If you are using my Tool please update to Version 1.1.1 of the widget.

Einstellen des Logginglevel der Starface UCI API
Tue, May 5th 2015 11:54a   Ralf Petter
Die Entwicklung unseres Notes basierenden CTI Client für die Starface Telefonanlage befindet sich kurz vor der Fertigstellung. Bisher war es sehr angenehm, dass die Starface API alle Debugmeldungen auf die Standard Ausgabe geleitet hat. Diese Infos sind während der Entwicklung sehr informativ, da sie praktisch die gesamte Kommunikation des Clients mit der Telefonanlage beinhalten. Im Echtbetrieb ist es aber natürlich ein Ärgernis, wenn das gesamte Client log mit Meldungen der Starface API ü

Remote Debug an IBM Notes client from Eclipse
Sat, Apr 18th 2015 5:22a   Ralf Petter
Normally the easiest way to debug Notes plugins is to start the Notes client directly from eclipse. I have explained how to do this in my tutorial: "Configure Eclipse 4.3 to develop plugins for Notes Part 1 and Part2". But sometimes problems are specific to a special client environment or user configuration and can not be debugged in a test environment. Yesterday i had such a problem with a feature which works great, when i launched the client from eclipse, but fails when i start the client li

How tell Notes that it should roam the preferences of your own plugins too.
Fri, Apr 17th 2015 1:44p   Ralf Petter
One of the best things about Notes is that it can synchronize your settings on different devices. So you have for example the same settings on your Desktop and on your Laptop. This feature is called roaming. This works really great for all IBM provided Features, but when you have deployed your own or third party eclipse features to your Notes client the settings of them will not roam to your other clients as the IBM Features do. This is very annoying for your users. So i have analyzed the whole

There are still marketing videos from IBM that I like.
Sat, Mar 28th 2015 12:50p   Ralf Petter
After the absolute bad marketing video about verse i have found this nice video about one of the best sources of IT knowledge regarding IBM products. The IBM Redbooks. Unfortunatly there have been no new real Redbooks for IBM Collaboration products since the introduction of the not so good IBM Red Wikis. I hope they will go back to the normal redbooks format in the future.

In Java 0 is not always equal to 0
Sun, Mar 22nd 2015 9:00a   Ralf Petter
I am a big fan, of the Java BigDecimal class for arithmetic operations. It provides fast and easy to use methods to do calculations in arbitrary precision. But last week i have got a bug report that in one of my programs a check whether a BigDecimal variable is 0 returns a wrong result. Here is the code: if(value.equals(BigDecimal.ZERO)) System.out.println("Value is zero"); else System.out.println("Value is not zero"); The check for a zero value has always worked, but suddenly last wee

Software problem data for QTETHRD has been logged during debug session in RDI

A RPG developer in our company had problems to debug an interactive RPG program. He wants to hold the program with the hold button while the program is waiting on user input, but it does not work and after some time the debugger in RDI stops and the program on the IBM i runs without interruption. The QSYSOPR message queue shows an error message CPI93B9 "Software problem data for QTETHRD has been logged. Refer to help text for additional information." at the same time the debugger in RDI crash

External USB keyboard does not work when connected to Dell Dockingstation on boot
Wed, Feb 25th 2015 10:27a   Ralf Petter
Today we had the problem that we can not enter the Truecrypt password on the external keyboard connected to a Dell Dockingstation with a new Dell Latitude Laptop. But after we have typed in the password on the Laptop keyboard and windows has booted the external keyboard works without problem. We have tried many things like updating the BIOS and other keyboards, but nothing worked. So we compared the BIOS config value by value with a working Laptop and found out that the Setting "Fastboot" in

Dolby Digital 5.1 Ausgabe bei Netflix und Amazon Instant Video

Ich bin ein großer Fan, der Streaming Dienste von Amazon und Netflix. Das einzige störende war bisher, dass es immer wieder Probleme beim Abspielen von 5.1 Inhalten über meine Heimkinoanlage gab. Meistens erhielt ich nur ein Stereo Signal, obwohl die Inhalte als 5.1 in der Benutzerschnittstelle von Netflix bzw. Amazon markiert waren. Als Abspielgerät verwende ich eine Playstation 3 die über HDMI mit einem Onkyo NR 636 verbunden ist. Heute habe ich mich einmal im Detail mit den Einstellungen

Download customized IBM i CUM and Group PTFs without Java applet trouble.
Sat, Feb 21st 2015 2:03p   Ralf Petter
Everybody who knows me, is aware that i am a big Java fan, but there is one thing in Java which does not work, Java applets. So it will be no surprise that i really hate the whole process to download Cumulative or group PTF's with fix central. The whole process depends on a java applet, which fails most of the time for security reasons. In older releases the use of the green screen "SNDPTFORD" command was not a workaround because it was limited to download only small PTF's and not big PTF

Fastest way to upload iso images to your IBM i
Thu, Feb 12th 2015 2:22p   Ralf Petter
When you plan an upgrade for your IBM i, you need to upload the iso images of the new release you have downloaded from IBM to your IBM i. The easiest way is to use a network share with Netserver, but the upload of 30 GB over a file share can be very slow. It is much faster to upload the images with FTP. In this tutorial i will show you how this works without the use of additional software: Start the FTP server with "STRTCPSVR *FTP" on your IBM i if it is not already started. Create a direct
