Teaching an ol' dog a new trick: SET CONFIG param=value update
Stephan H Wissel    

One of the cardinal sins of Domino administration (besides FTP/copy of a server NSF) is the manual editing of notes.ini variables. To update an notes.ini variable instantly you can use the server console and type set config param=value, while for permanent changes you would add the value to a server configuration document. Using the server configuration document has the advantage, that your ini changes not only will survive a reboot or even loss of your notes.ini, but they serve as documentation too.
My colleague Thomas Hampel today pointed me to a technote that I wasn't aware of. It explains how to combine these two steps into one:
set config param=value update will instantly activate a parameter and wite it back into the server configuration document. For lazy or forgetful administrators you can issue this command once: set config ENABLE_SRVCFG_NAB_UPDATE=1 update and it will automatically update any parameter into the configuration document when you change it through a set command. Just keep in mind: don't edit that notes.ini on the OS level:
I will never edit a notes.ini on the OS level

Mustache and CKEditor - Round two
Mon, Apr 14th 2014 9:11a   Stephan H Wissel
ving just a few static values in the CK Editor drop down list really doesn't cut it. So we extend the bean today to have more flexible options. There are a few that spring to mind: List of all items in a given document List of all fields in a form (including subforms), eventually with or without the $ fields List of provided field names So here we go: Mustache and CKEdit demo The big change here is the replacement of the EL Expression mustache.sampleData wit [read] Keywords: ibm xpages database java javascript xml

Lotus de la Mancha
Wed, Apr 9th 2014 10:12a   Stephan H Wissel
One of my personal heroes is Don Quixote de la Mancha. He is a bat-shit crazy knight, who is true in his courtship of his Lady Dulcinea and never tired to pick a fight with a giant (windmill). His charge against the windmills, is regarded as a result of his craziness, but digging deeper you will find a nobility, worthy of a true knight: stand in for what you deem is right, regardless of the odds of success. Being true to your calling resonates with me. Wikipedia has an image of the crest of La [read] Keywords: lotus wiki

CKEditor and Mustache become friends
Tue, Apr 8th 2014 9:11p   Stephan H Wissel
In the beginning there was WordStar and CSV and the possibility of (then printed) personalized mass-communication arrived in the form of mail-merge. For Notes eMails that is still a challenge (the latest version of OpenOffice now seems to have a reasonable eMail-Merge, but that's off topic here) since creating the template is kind of fuzzy (a.k.a usually out of the reach of mere mortal users). XPages, Mustache and CKEditor to the rescue! The CKEditor shipping with XPages can be easily customiz [read] Keywords: ibm notes rich-text xpages email java javascript openntf openoffice wiki xml

MongoDB to switch to IBM storage backend
Tue, Apr 1st 2014 6:12a   Stephan H Wissel
One of the rising stars in NoSQL land is MongoDB. It is prominently featured in IBM BlueMix and in conjunction with Node.js the darling of the startup scene. However it isn't trouble free, has been called broken by design, bad for data and a folly. In a bold move to silence all critiques, the makers turned to IBM to get access to a distributed, robust and secure backend storage engine: the venerable NSF.

Communicate with a German

It was going around for a while, how to decode what an English man actually means when he says something. A Harvard Business Review article attributes the insights to Nannette Ripmeester's research and insights. What I was missing in all those tables is the reverse translation. So here it goes: What a German saysWhat the British should hearWhat the German meant Bad idea!Please think about that some moreBad idea!

On a quest for the best biking application
Thu, Mar 27th 2014 9:11p   Stephan H Wissel
Preparing for my June adventure, I'm tracking my cycling progress. So far I tried Endomondo, RunKeeper and had a look at Strava. They all have their ups and downs: Endomondo doesn't provide a open data API and I never got the live broadcast working, but the UI is readable on a bike RunKeeper UI is too tiny for cycling mount, but live broadcast works nicely and the data API is open Strava doesn't seem to provide live updates, but rather tracking after the tour Battery live sucks for all of th [read] Keywords: application

Learning a new language or platform
Thu, Mar 27th 2014 11:11a   Stephan H Wissel
The first programming language I learned was COBOL both using a Microfocus compiler (with an innovative tool called Animator, today commonly refered to as "Source level debugger") and on an IBM System /36. Until today I think Cobol is cool, not at least since you can reuse its source code, read aloud, as tranquiliser and only in COBOL this compiles without error: PERFORM makemoney UNTIL rich. You have to read "full stop" at the end to get all COBOL nuts laughing, because when you missed it [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotusscript xpages applications development javascript mobile server wiki xml

Fun with {{Mustache}} and Notes Forms
Wed, Mar 12th 2014 12:11p   Stephan H Wissel
Creating output from your objects is a never ending story. In XPages we use Expression Language, in classic Notes forms (including $$ViewTemplates). For the JavaScript front-end developers there is an ever growing selection and there's the good old String concatenation. On the JavaScript side I like AngularJS and Mustache. The big question with templating is: how much logic should go into the template. Mustache is one of the logic-less approaches that expects most of the logic to be presented [read] Keywords: notes xpages interface java javascript twitter wiki xml xslt

Rethinking Social Software
Sat, Mar 1st 2014 5:11a   Stephan H Wissel
Einstein is attributed with a famous quote:"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler." (called Einstein's razor, the counter balance to Occam's razor). Looking at the social software landscape today I must conclude that it is both too simple and not as simple as possible. In the "too simple" camp with have the notion: "everything is just one big stream of collaboration and a few tags will do" (and it's variations). If you follow this notion all collaboration you w [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm email social software twitter wiki

What is your investment in Notes applications - revisited
Tue, Feb 25th 2014 8:11p   Stephan H Wissel
About 2 years ago I asked: "What's your investment in Notes Applications?" and provided steps using DXLMagic to base the answer to that question on evidence rather opinion. With the arrival of version control capabilities in Domino Designer that task became easier (or different - your take). Revisiting the code base I devised new requirements: The analysis should run against the On-Disk-Project rather than the NSF. The simplified assumption here: you deselected the "Use Binary DXL for sourc [read] Keywords: domino dxl ibm notes application applications database integration java openntf properties server
