Presentation: Showtime! An XPage Dynamic Table Managed Bean
Presenter: Russell Maher, President, RGM Consulting

Heard about or seen managed beans? Not sure how to actually use them in your real-life XPage application? Need an XPage dynamic table that is easily user-configurable, is very fast and allows users to save document drafts? In this presentation I will take you step-by-step through the requirements, logic, development, deployment and configuration of a dynamic table solution implemented via managed beans and XPage custom controls. By the end of this presentation you will have plenty of information to enable you to use this code in your own applications, a detailed explanation of how this works and why, and a better understanding of when, how and why to use managed beans in your own XPage applications. Everything is easy once you know how.

Presentation: Using A Mobile Approach: Proven Strategies For Mobilizing Your IBM Lotus Domino Applications
Presenter: Graham Acres, President, Brytek Systems

This session presents strategies to employ when planning to build a mobile application within your Lotus Domino environment. Whether you are a project manager, admin, developer or business leader, this session is for you. Using a real-world coast-to-coast mobile customer service application implementation project as an example, the presentation will address the challenges organizations face in first-time mobile projects and the strategies that work as a result. What devices will I support? Does the business team understand the user interface considerations of a smartphone or tablet vs a browser or Notes client when providing requirements? Does the admin team have the skills to support the mobile environment? Can I take advantage of my existing Domino infrastructure and skills? How will I test and support the app? How will the application be deployed? You will leave with an understanding of the key considerations involved in building a mobile application strategy for your organization.

More Fun Creating Dojo widgets and MVC
Fri, Oct 3rd 2014 11:12a   Richard Moy
Here is another article in my "Fun with Dojo" series. Dojo traditionally has been considered slow. One reason is that Dojo loads alot of modules before it instantiates the page. Dojo with AMD helps reduce the number of modules when it first loads but not the number of modules. This is great. However, one thing that I really dislike are Dojo Dijit widgets. They are heavy, slow, and require a lot of modules to be loaded. We like the Bootstrap widgets because they are lightweight.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly about AMD in Dojo

We were testing iPhora Touch 2 with the attendees of MWLUG 2014 in the MWLUG portal and as usual, the interface had issues even after having outside users provide feedback before we rolled it out. When you are so focused on the creation process it hard to see issues until it is seen by fresh pair of eyes. So we are working on a new faster and improved interface for iPhora Touch. This is the evolution of any product.

Why an Ideal MVC Framework Fails
Wed, Oct 1st 2014 9:13a   Richard Moy
One of the "Next Big Things" these days is the use an MVC framework for developing Web applications. There are a number of MVC frameworks out there including Backbone, Ember, and the rapidly growing Angular. Ideally these MVC frameworks are great, hook things together and any changes to the model (data) and all the views are updated based on the controller code. If there is changes to the model, the data is automatically updated on the server. This is the ideal case. However, it assumes on [read] Keywords: domino application applications blogger development dojo interface security server widgets

Don't What it, Hitch It

Async callbacks and closures is an incredible thing about JavaScript. This is what makes environments like nodejs possible, a topic of many blogs to come. Many of the JavaScript frameworks like my favorite framework Dojo have the ability to deal with closures and callbacks. One of the issues that one needs to deal with is getting a handle to the current scope within a closure. We discussed this and how to deal with it in Dojo in a previous blog. http://dominointerface.blogspot.com/2014/03/ [read] Keywords: domino blogger dojo interface javascript widget widgets

Installing Nginx Reverse Proxy on CentOS for Domino Our Experience
Mon, Sep 29th 2014 12:12p   Richard Moy
Over the past few weeks there has been a significant number of discussions about Domino and the lack of SHA-2 support. Jesse Gallagher had an entire MWLUG 2014 session on this very topic. When I ask Jesse to present on this topic, unbeknownst to me what a hot topic this would become and so timely. First, IBM should have fixed these problems years ago. For us this is a critical issue that if not addressed will kill the market for Domino. Thanks to Jess efforts and contributions, there is a w [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm notes apple blogger centos interface linux network server skype ubuntu

Gotcha, Creating Dynamic Script Blocks Using SSJS
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 10:11a   Richard Moy
For our iPhora applications we only use one XPage and dynamically create the content that appears. We do this by storing the dynamic content in Notes Rich Text fields and using SSJS to read and generate the HTML/JavaScript during runtime. Since we are moving to an single page MVC model, we were adding a few addition xp:scriptBlock to generate the initial loader and pulling the information from a NotesRichText field. We were using doc.getFirstValueString('richtextfield') to pull and create [read] Keywords: domino lotusscript notes rich text applications blogger interface javascript

As many of us who have attended Lotusphere/IBMConnect/Connected know that IBM references a fictitious company for their demonstrations called Renovations Inc. We have a number of XPages with Java sessions and we wanted to apply the demos and designs to a company and cohesively tie the different sessions into how one company that was using XPages throughout their business. So we came up with Midwest Bicycle Incorporated. So as you attend these sessions you will learn how the Midwest Bicycle Inco [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotusphere xpages blogger interface java

As many of you know MWLUG is not just about building knowledge of IBM solutions and networking with our fellow ICS community members, it is about being part of the community. This is one of the reason we move MWLUG from city to city. It is about getting to know your local community whether it is in your town or a different town. Each year we have a fundraising drive for a local community organization in particular a local food bank.
