Give your web applications a speedboost and HTML5 compatibility boost in Internet Explorer
Stephan H Wissel    

With the accelerating emergence of mobile devices HTML5 takes centre stage. While the first round of the "browser wars 2.0" was all about speed, the second round is about HTML5 compatibility behaviour. With the dominance of Android and iOS in the mobile market Microsoft's Internet Explorer isn't the gold standard for browsers anymore, the test results rather show IE as trying to catch up. Furthermore, since it isn't a standard if it doesn't allow for divergent interpretation, Microsoft implements HTML5 features different than the rest, creating a headache for developers. The irony in the whole situation is, that Microsoft won "browser wars 1.0" because the implemented HTML more faithful that its then competitors.
Quite some organisations claim (with various levels of credibility) to be stuck/standardised on IE (which I usually reply to with: "Interesting, what version of IE is running on your CEO's iPad?"), so you can't use all the new fancy stuff you could use on the mobile devices (until Windows Phone7 becomes popular and the "IE does it differently" headache starts on mobile). Luckily there is a cure: Chrome Frame. It installs inside IE and doesn't load any pages until you tell it so. So all the legacy code can still run with IE, but your new stuff uses Chrome's webkit rendering engine, solves a lot of XPages/Dojo headaches too. There are a few steps to get going:
  1. Add <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1"> to your HTML head section. This will ensure Chrome Frame is activated when rendering your page. If all of your applications on your (Domino) server should use it, you also can use a HTTP header (that's the web/Internet Sites section in the Domino directory) X-UA-Compatible: chrome=1
  2. Add discovery and download options to your page(s)
  3. If you are the system administrator, you want to download the MSI Installer and push it out (I like OCS Inventory for that). Make sure you read the admin guide
You can install it now. As usual YMMV.

In the last instalment I got vert.x to emit a Notes view, read from your local mail file, to be emitted as JSON stream. While that might be perfectly fine for the inner geek, normal mortals want to look (and interact) with something more pretty. The cool kids on the block for web interfaces and applications are Twitter BootStrap and AngularJS, so these will be the tools in this instalment. Not familiar with them? Go and watch some videos. Back? Let's get going. Since I'm not much of a desig [read] Keywords: admin ibm notes application applications css twitter

Rendering a Notes view as JSON REST service - on your client
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 11:13a   Stephan H Wissel
My next goal after getting the basic connection to Notes working is to be able to serve a potential API. Still making friends with the non-blocking approach of vert.x, I'm taking baby steps forward. In this round I want to be able to deliver a view or folder as JSON string. On a Domino server that is easy. You can use ?ReadViewEntries&OutputFormat=JSON. On a Notes client you have to do it yourself. In round one I will ignore categorized views (that's for the next time), but I already will [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes notes client application database java openntf server

Keeping up with all the GIT
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 6:13a   Stephan H Wissel
Unless you stuck in the last century, you might have noticed, that the gold standard for version control is GIT. Atlassian likes it, IBM DevOps supports it and of course the Linux Kernel is build with it. The prime destination for opensource projects is GitHub, with BitBucket coming in strong too. Getting the code of a project you work with (and I bet you do - jquery anyone) is just a git clone away. Of course that opens the challenge to keep up with all the changes and updates.

Collaboration in context

Harry, a storm is coming, at least if you follow Cary Youman. Nothing less that the way we collaborate will be, again, a focus for IBM. The need has not found a definite solution. The attempt to reinvent eMail is starving in the incubator. Great minds try to reinvent the conversation (and looks suspiciously like Wave). So what is so tricky about collaboration? In short it is context, the famous 5 W. In our hyperconnected world context can get big rather fast: [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm email openntf twitter wiki

Creating nginx configurations for Domino SSL
Sat, Sep 20th 2014 1:12p   Stephan H Wissel
Websites need to be secure, so the SHA-1 cipher is coming to an end. Despite best efforts, Domino is stuck with this outdated Cipher. While you can, on Windows, hide Domino behind IHS, I find nginx easier to tame. Jesse explains how to configure nginx as the Domino proxy. So all is good, expecially since he also covered High availability. But when you have a lot of sites, that's a lot of typing (and copy & paste from the Internet site documents). Mustache to the rescue! I've written abou [read] Keywords: domino ibm java server

Tracking down slow internet on SingTel Fibre to the home
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 8:12p   Stephan H Wissel
SingTel makes big claims about the beauty of their fibre offering. I do not experience the claimed benefits. So I'm starting to track down what is happening. Interestingly when you visit SpeedTest, it shows fantastic results. I smell rat. So I ran a test with Pocketinet in Walla Walla, WA. SpeedTest claims a 5ms ping response, but when I, immediate before or after such a test, issue a ping -c5 www.pocketinet.com I get results rather in the range of 200-230ms.

When you learn cooking, there are a few basic skills that need to be in place before you can get started: cutting, measuring, stiring and understanding of temperature's impact on food items. These skills are independent from what you want to cook: western, Chinese, Indian, Korean or Space Food. The same applies to software development. Interestingly we try to delegate these skills to ui designers, architects, project managers analyst or infrastructure owners.

Flow, Rules, Complexity and Simplicity in Workflow
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 6:13a   Stephan H Wissel
When I make the claim "Most workflows are simple", in return I'm hit with bewildered looks and the assertion: "No, ours are quite complex". My little provocation is quite deliberate, since it serves as an opening gambit to discuss the relation between flow, rules and lookups. All workflows begin rather simple. I'll take a travel approval workflow as a sample (resemblance of workflows of existing companies would be pure coincidence). The explanation is simple: "You request approval from [read] Keywords: google

Rethinking the MimeDocument data source
Mon, Sep 1st 2014 12:13p   Stephan H Wissel
Tim (we miss you) and Jesse had the idea to store beans in Mime documents, which became an OpenNTF project. I love that idea and was musing how to make it more "domino like". In its binary format, a serialized bean can't be used for showing view data, nor can one be sure that it can be transported or deserialized other than through the same class version as the creator (this is why Serialized wants to have a serialid). With a little extra work, that becomes actually quite easy: Enter JAXB. [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes xpages email java linkedin openntf oracle profile xml

Bikepad SmartPhone mount review
Mon, Sep 1st 2014 10:12a   Stephan H Wissel
This is my field impression of the Bikepad SmartPhone mount having used it for a few weeks on my Montague Paratrooper pro TL:TRThe Bikepad is a highly functional accessory to keep your phone on your bike fully functional. Is has quality craftsmanship and a sleek design. If I had an editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award to give (I actually paid for it), I would award it. I do cycle for longer durations and some rough spots, so I like to keep a phone in reach. Not at last to keep SWMBO updated. [read] Keywords: iphone wiki
