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

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
Tue, Mar 10th 2015 7:07a   Ralf Petter
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

Replication in Notes fails with error file does not exist
Wed, Mar 4th 2015 11:13a   Ralf Petter
Yesterday i had the problem that a user who got a new replica of his mail file does not get new mails. Every time he start the replication of his mail file he got the error "File does not exist" in the replicator tab.  The replication log shows that the replica is sending data to the server, but does not get any data from the server.

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
Sun, Feb 22nd 2015 7:51a   Ralf Petter
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
