This Week in Lotus 074 - The X-Rated Show. XPages, XSnippets and Xtensions - what have OpenNTF and IBM done to Xtend Domino Development?

Hosts:  Stuart McIntyre (blog | twitter | company) & Darren Duke (blog | twitter | company)

Guests:
Niklas Heidloff (blog | twitter | OpenNTF blog) is is an architect in the IBM Lotus Domino development team and leads IBM's engagement in OpenNTF including XPages.info.
Martin Donnelly (linkedin) is a software architect and tech lead for the XPages runtime team in IBM Ireland and has worked on all three XPages releases from Notes/Domino 8.5 through 8.5.2, Prior to this, Martin also worked on XFaces for Lotus Component Designer and on JSF tooling for Rational Application Developer. In the 1990s while living and working in Massachusetts, he was a lead developer on Domino Designer. Now, once again based in Ireland, Martin lives in Cork with his wife, three daughters, and two greyhounds. When pressed, he confesses to playing soccer on a weekly basis, and salmon fishing during the summer when the opportunity presents itself.
Chris Connor (company | twitter | blog | linkedin) is a Consultant / Developer in XPages, Mobile, Eclipse, Java. Worked with Lotus Notes and Domino for 16+ years. Based in Hamilton (just outside Glasgow) in Scotland. Works for customers throughout the UK.


Topics:
XPages Extension Library update
  • What is the Extension Library?
  • Why did IBM release this as an extra library?
  • What’s new in the release?
    • Mobile controls
    • Social Enabler
    • Extlib tooling plugin for Designer
    • New discussion and teamroom template
    • Upgrade to support accessibility and localization
  • What version of Notes/Domino is required?
  • What happens to the Mobile Library?
  • How does the Extension Library get deployed and how does support work?
Reflections on IBM XWork Server launch
  • What has the reaction been like from customers?
  • Seems the sense is that beyond the 4x4 and 8x8 restrictions the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
Uplift parts for Connections entitlements announced
  • Just 60GBP list price
  • Effectively discounts Connections sales into N/D customers by ~40%
  • Difficult to know how to handle customers where only some of the users need the uplift
XPages Contest
  • Goals: Mobile apps or social applications
  • Awards: 3 iPads/iPhones/vouchers and 1 Lotusphere 2012 ticket
  • Deadline for submissions: 12/02/11
XSnippets - Next Generation of the OpenNTF Code Bin
  • Contributors: Frank van der Linden, Serdar Basegmez, Bruce Elgort, Niklas Heidloff
  • Other goal: Document how we do things, not only the results
DANNotes coming soon
  • Niklas, Chris and Stuart all speaking there
  • 23-24 November, 2011 in Korsor, 75 minutes West of Copenhagen

Tips:
Darren:

Lose hours and hours (via twitter, sorry can’t recall who) - http://www.drawastickman.com/
Niklas:

http://xpages.info/videos
has 10 hours of free XPages videos
Martin:

New books:
XPages Extension Library - ETA April 2012 (Amazon US | Amazon UK)
XPages Portable Command Guide: A Compact Resource to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language - ETA January 2012 (Amazon US | Amazon UK)
Chris:

Look at building XPages apps more around java instead of SSJS.
Stuart:

SocialNotes
- fixed price deployment of Connections Files & Profiles for Notes/Domino customers

TWiL - The show must go on!
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 11:51p   Stuart McIntyre
In response to lots of kind words from our listeners, Darren and I are continuing to produce This Week in Lotus on an occasional basis... Whilst there are really no IBM products left that enjoy the 'Lotus' moniker, there is definitely a 'Lotus community' that survives. Given the closeness of the friendships and the enduring sense of kindred spirit, I have a feeling that we'll still be gathering in person and online many years after all installs of Notes and Domino have long since been r [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm lotus notes community

I've just been going through some blog and site admin as part of a transatlantic server consolidation and I've spotted that we never posted our final ever This Week in Lotus podcast recording from IBM Connect 2013. Seriously! I know we tweeted it at the time, but somehow it never made it onto the site. So sorry! As you can tell, this was a very live and informal session, recorded during the Thursday lunchtime break, so we've done our best with audio and video quality, but this is definit [read] Keywords: admin ibm lotus podcast server twitter

Recorded on 8th November 2012. We are joined by Handly Cameron and Sharon Bellamy to discuss Connect 2013, the launch of Connections 4.0, Social Connections IV and more. Please Read: As you may have noticed, November 8th was a while ago, so yet again we've had a bit of an hiatus in releasing these shows. The fault lies completely with me - vacations and workloads have definitely not helped. However, rumours of our demise have definitely been exaggerated!
