Agile Outsourcing
Wed, Feb 8th 2017 12:00p   Stephan H Wissel
The problem Outsourcing is a "special" animal. Typically the idea is to save cost by letting a service provider execute work. The saving cost happens because the service provider is supposed to be able to perform this actions at scale. Increasingly outsourcing deals are motivated by a skill squeeze. So instead of maintaining in-house expertise, rely on the vendors to keep the light on. This is where the trouble starts. Negotiations on outsourcing contracts revolves around price (drive it down

SAML and the Command Line
Mon, Jan 30th 2017 4:41p   Stephan H Wissel
One of the best kept secrets of Connections Cloud S1 is the Traveler API. The API allows interactions that are missing from the Admin UI, like deleting a specific device or implementing an approval workflow. Unfortunately the API only offers authentication via SAML, OAuth or BasicAuth are missing. So any application interacting with the API needs to do The SAML Dance.

Serving Single Page Applications with Domino
Wed, Jan 11th 2017 9:14a   Stephan H Wissel
Single Page Applications (SPA) are all the rage. They get developed with AngularJS, ReactJS or {insert-your-framework-of-choice}. Those share a few communialities: hhe application is served off a static web server data is provided via an API, typically reading/writing JSON via REST or graph authentication is often long lasting (remember me...) based on JWT authentication is highly flexible: login with {facebook|google|linkedin|twitter} or a corporate account. Increasingly 2 factor authenticatio

Project OrangeBox, the Solr free search component was launched after the experiments with Java8, Vert.x and RxJava in TPTSNBN concluded.

Domino meets RXJava
Tue, Sep 13th 2016 7:33a   Stephan H Wissel

There was a lengthy, high quality discussion and quite some effort evaluating alternatives. In conclusion it was decided to deliver the subset of Solr capabilities needed for VoP as series of OSGi plugins to the Domino server. The project was formed out of the experience with ProjectCastle, which continues as Project OrangeBox to del
