Now that you can have embedded experiences in Notes, you need to send them
Stephan H Wissel    

Courtesy of Apache Shindig IBM Notes 9.0 (the client) and IBM Domino 9.0 (the server) now can render OpenSocial Embedded Experiences.
While Notes always had the option for custom mail experiences (store form in document, send), the Embedded Experiences allow integration into any application (that supports them).
One of the first things you might want to do is to pimp your existing applications to provide this new experience. It would be much lighter than storing the form and also work with other mail front-ends.
The good news: adding embedded experiences degrades gracefully, so all users not on 9.0 or later won't see a thing. This means you can get started immediately:
  1. listen to Niklas' explanation and get the sample code
  2. create/configure the gadget for your application (that's a separate post, coming soon), check the documentation
  3. create a class that does all the notification sending, classic and EE
To give you a head start for #3 use this.
As ususal YMMV

Long Term Storage and Retention
Thu, Aug 14th 2014 6:14a   Stephan H Wissel
Not just since Einstein time is relative. For a human brain anything above 3 seconds is long term. In IT this is a little more complex. Once a work artefact is completed, it runs through a legal vetting and it either goes to medium or long term storage. I'll explain the difference in a second. This logical flow manifests itself in multiple ways in concrete implementations: Journaling (both eMail and databases), archival, backups, write-once copies. Quite often all artifacts go to medium term [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes application archive database email office wiki xml

Time stamped encrypted archives
Wed, Aug 13th 2014 9:12a   Stephan H Wissel
Developers use Version Control, business users Document management and consultants ZIP files. From time to time I feel the need to safeguard a snapshot in time outside the machine I'm working with. Since "storage out of my control" isn't trustworthy, I encrypt data. This is the script I use: #!/bin/bash ############################################################################ # Saves the given directory (%1) in an SSL encrypted zip file (%2) within # the personalFiles folder.

Designing a REST API for eMail
Sat, Aug 9th 2014 11:12a   Stephan H Wissel
Unencumbered by standards designed by committees I'm musing how a REST API would look like. A REST API consists of 3 parts: the URI (~ URL for browser access), the verb and the payload. Since I'm looking at browser only access, the structured data payload format clearly will be JSON with the prose payload delivered in MIME format. I will worry about calendar and social data later on. The verbs in REST are defined by the HTTP standard: , PUT, and DELETE. My base url would be http://localhost [read] Keywords: ibm email wiki

Running vert.x with the OpenNTF Domino API
Wed, Aug 6th 2014 1:11p   Stephan H Wissel
In the first part I got vert.x 3.0 running with my local Notes client. The mastered challenges there were 32 Bit Java for the Notes client and the usual adjustment for the path variables. The adoption of the OpenNTF Domino API required a few steps more: Set 2 evironment variables: DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ibm/notes LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ibm/notes Add the following parameter to your Java command line: -Dnotes.binary=/opt/ibm/notes -Duser.dir=/home/stw/lotus/notes/data -Djava.library.path=/opt/ib [read] Keywords: agent domino ibm lotus notes notes client applications eclipse java openntf

Workflow for beginners, Standards, Concepts and Confusion
Thu, Jul 24th 2014 10:12a   Stephan H Wissel
The nature of collaboration is the flow of information. So naturally I get asked about Workflows and its incarnation in IT systems a lot. Many of the question point to a fundamental confusion what Worflow is, and what it isn't. This entry will attempt to clarify concepts and terminology Wikipedia sums it up nicely: "A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, pro [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm applications email google openntf soa wiki

Adventures with vert.x, 64Bit and the IBM Notes client
Thu, Jul 17th 2014 8:12a   Stephan H Wissel
The rising star of web servers currently is node.js, not at least due to the cambrian explosion in available packages with a clever package management system and the fact that "Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript" (according to Jeff Atwood). When talking to IBM Domino or IBM Connections node.js allows for very elegant solutions using the REST APIs. However when talking to a IBM Notes client, it can't do much since an external program ne [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotus notes notes client application development eclipse google java javascript oracle python wiki ubuntu

Cycle where?
Sun, Jul 13th 2014 1:12p   Stephan H Wissel
I like to cycle, I do that often and from time to time I have fun with traffic participants. One of the interesting challenges are multi-lane crossings (note to my overseas readers: Singapore follows the British system of driving on the left, so cyclists are supposed to cycle on the left edge of the road - which makes me edgy in some situations. So for right driving countries, just flip the pictures) where the outer lane allows more than one direction. Like these: Road rules do require the [read] Keywords: google wiki

From XML to JSON and back
Fri, Jul 11th 2014 8:12p   Stephan H Wissel
In the beginning there was csv and the world of application neutral (almost) human readable data formats was good. Then unrest grew and the demand for more structure and contextual information grew. This gave birth to SGML (1986), adopted only by a few initiated. Only more than a decade later (1998) SGML's offspring XML took centre stage. With broad support for schemas, transformation and tooling the de facto standard for application neutral (almost) human readable data formats was established [read] Keywords: application java javascript server wiki xml xslt

The folly of root cause analysis
Wed, Jul 9th 2014 6:12a   Stephan H Wissel
IT support's dealing with management is a funny business. Whenever something goes wrong, support teams engage in "defensive blaming" and the elusive quest for a root cause. I've seen this quest (and blaming god and country along the way if it doesn't appear) taking priority over problem resolution and prevention. The twisted thought is: "If I'm not sure about the (single) root cause, I can't neither fix nor prevent it from happening again". Why is that a folly? It paralyses: If a pe [read] Keywords: application database google wiki
