09:15 AM - 10:15 AM 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.
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM 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.
