We need an Ultimate Connector for Everything...
Serdar Basegmez    

Did you see that old advertisement video from IBM?



OK, Universal Adapter does not exist. But it was a funny video :)

Anyway, it wasn't my topic.

We have several content repositories within different IBM products. Connections (and LotusLive of course) has Files, Quickr (for Portal or for Domino) has Document Libraries, Domino has Teamroom, FileNet has Files again... The list goes like this.

So far, we have different connectors for most of these repositories. I think it's the time to design a universal content connector for every repositories we have. It's not a big problem for the server-side platforms because most of these systems has document APIs based on REST.

I have a small wish list for this connector:

- It should be implemented with Eclipse. It would be heavy, but it will be platform-independent and can be easily integrated to existing applications (Sametime, Notes and Symphony).
- A seperate Mobile version is a must.
- User should be able to create multiple proffiles for multiple repositories.
- Should support offline capability. User would make some libraries available offline to sync them later.
- Administrative deployment for large systems.

What do you think about it?

Changing URL in File Download Control...
Wed, Jun 25th 2014 7:11a   Serdar Basegmez
After a very long period of silence, here I am with a tiny little trick about File Download Control in XPages. I saw that there are lots of questions about this component, related to showing attachments instead of downloading them. Stephen Wissel explained how to build a download url with the XPages syntax. The old style notation (which DOES NOT work in XPiNC): http(s)://[yourserver]/[application.nsf]/[viewname|0]/[UNID| ViewKey]/$File/[Attachm [read] Keywords: domino ibm ldd lotus notes xpages application database development javascript server

A Quick Question for Administrators...
Tue, Jun 10th 2014 6:14a   Serdar Basegmez
Just a quick question. Especially large domains have lots of users with the same full name. In modern directory systems, we can decrease the possibility of conflict by using hierarchical naming, however that will become an issue eventually, when you need to specify an e-mail address. I have seen that adding a number to the first or last name (John Smith , John 1 Smith, etc.) is highly popular. How do you handle people with the same name in your environment (e.g. Domino, AD, Connections, et [read] Keywords: connections domino lotus

RIP Tim Tripcony...

As many friends around, we are shocked and deeply saddened by unexpected loss of our own Tim Tripcony. Tim Tripcony was one of the most talented developers I have met... He inspired all of us by challenging all kinds of limits in our platform and finding really elegant patterns in various problems. He was always polite, helpful and positive with people. RIP, my friend. You'll be missed a lot. [read] Keywords:

Just an off-topic post, but can't help blogging about that. We are having bad times in our country. Summaries in English can be found here, here and here. Last two incidents are strongly related to very social context of our information and technology domain... Welcome to the remake of Orwell's 1984... The first is the change in the "Internet Bill", legal changes around monitoring and censorship.

This is going to be my third IBM Connect and second session. Excited! Last year, my session co-presenter was my dear friend Bruce Elgort. I feel privileged this year again, because I am sharing the stage with a great speaker, Graham Acres... The session is all about the IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK, which has been first announced at Lotusphere 2011. After three years, we will see much more content about it this year. Since first hearing about the toolkit, I had trouble under [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotusphere notes xpages application applications integration java javascript openntf twitter

Yesterday, I have blogged about the renewal of my IBM Champion title. This morning I woke up with lots of notifications on my mobile. Apparently, my dear friend Bruce liked my blog post very much and he has posted it everywhere (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin Google Plus). The real surprise was on PlanetLotus waiting for me :) Wow! I must be really famous and people want to know about my happiness. Thank you all! :) OK I'm joking.

Yes! Change is good... For a couple of weeks, I've been working on Bootstrap and as I learn it, my blog became a great playground for me! It's still using Domino Blog template at the back-end but skin is completely renewed. I have not optimized for performance yet but I can tell you, our blog template is so powerful that I have not changed anything in the application design! Please share your thoughts and tell me if you see any problems! BTW, I can share my templates in case you [read] Keywords: domino application

Before writing this post I tried to remember when I have met Bruce for the first time. It was just 2.5 years ago when I received a twitter DM from him. I was at an airport in Germany waiting the boarding time. I remember had a short discussion over Skype. 2.5 years? Really? I feel like I know Bruce for decades. Bruce Elgort is one of the founders of OpenNTF, which is a very important initiative which bands passionate developers together, improves communication and collaboration within [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm lotus lotusphere notes blogger community openntf podcast skype taking notes twitter
