a weird date
Fri, Aug 29th 2014 4:05a   Vince Schuurman
While testing our new system we came across this very strange error message: org.joda.time.IllegalInstantException: Cannot parse "1940-05-16": Illegal instant due to time zone offset transition (Europe/Amsterdam) So we checked and it appears that there was a problem with date/times during that date: The time was changed from UTC+00:20 to UTC+1 and joda does not know what to do with that date.

extractFile alternative for exporting attachments with diacritics from Domino
Wed, Jun 25th 2014 2:45p   Vince Schuurman
We are in the last stages of our Migration project from Domino to JEE and one of the hardest parts was to find a good search engine for full text searching. We decided on Elasticsearch a very fast and powerful searching engine based on Lucine. The problem we encountered on exporting the pdf's from Domino on Linux were filenames with diacritics. Domino's embeddedObject.extractFile functionality does not work well with diacritics so I decided to use the InputStream instead: InputStream inputS [read] Keywords: domino linux

An update in the series migration from Domino to JEE . We have all been working very hard on this project, we had some setbacks, lots of personnel changes (good and bad) and lots of stress. We planned to migrate the old site page per page, but we got to a point where we have to migrate everything related to customer and user settings at once, and that means it will be more like a big bang than an evolution.

Spring project part 7: Phase 1 First Release
Sun, Oct 27th 2013 4:42a   Vince Schuurman
Ok, we had our first release last week, we have finally migrated some parts of a very complex Domino infrastructure to JEE. This is only Phase 1 we are talking about, so lots more to come. But at least we can now get a feeling of how it runs under pressure and whether or not we have to adjust our calculations for the other 5!!! phases of the migration from Domino to JEE project. So far it looks like we are still within budget. However I get the feeling we are moving more and more functionality f [read] Keywords: domino javascript mysql network server sql

I will post a schema of our final setup for the DTAP environment soon. It is pretty slick including Jenkins and Sonar for automated code checking, building and testing projects. But since I have been temporarily assigned to projects to improve the current (Domino) production environment I don't have much to report on the actual techniques used in the project itself.

As part of the project we need to send both individual e-mails from the website and newsletters using batch processing. Using Thymeleaf e-mail templates sending Rich HTML emails is very simple. The only thing that was disappointing to me is the handling of inline images. But since the 'old' environment uses internet based images that is not an issue now.

I am afraid there is not much to tell at this point, because I am currently half sidetracked. First we had a serious problem with our infrastructure and after that the management decided they wanted new functionality in production that could not wait until the new infrastructure was finished. What I did learn however is that the datatables4j however cool does not offer enough functionality for me so I changed my code to call the underlying jQuery datatables directly.

Performance gain after SAN crash
Tue, Mar 19th 2013 10:09a   Vince Schuurman
Due to Harddisk faillure a customer had to move his Domino webservers to other hardware. This particular piece of hardware runs on SSD disks and there was only room for one server, so we kept our fingers crossed. I knew moving to SSD is a performance boost especially for heavy Domino sites, but seeing it in your own production environment is something else! The one server can easily handle the load that we used to divide among three Domino servers. In fact their site runs 50% faster now. So if [read] Keywords: domino bleedyellow bleedyellow.com server

I was one of the first to buy the 'old' (2007) Macbook Air's. I thought it would be the best 'travel companion' since it was small light and still had enough on board for work. Sure it lacked an internal CD/DVD ROM player and only had one USB connector, but I didn't expect to need that much anyway. Turned out I was right. What I wasn't expecting though was the effect of a max. 2GB memory in combination with what appeared to be a very slow IO.

and pfew do I need some sleep :) But the event was brilliant again thanks to the usual suspects; Paul, Warren, Matt, coatsie, Kitty, Eileen, Bill, Steve and all the others!! The nearby Indian restaurant wasn't as good prepared for our invasion though and ran out of RICE!!! the second night. Except for a small storm (moderate breeze in Irish terms) on Wednesday, even the weather played along nicely. Good enough even to make my visit to The Giant's Causeway a very pleasant one :) [read] Keywords: ilug wiki

Installed MeeGo on the N900
Sun, Nov 7th 2010 12:20p   Vince Schuurman
It took many hours and lots of strong words, but I finally managed to install Maemo and MeeGo dual boot on my Nokia N900. While testing I wonder why I took the trouble, because MeeGoo is not just 'not ready yet', it's painful. After typing a space or a dot for example you may or may not get a repeating 'b' or 'c' respectively until you hit the backspace or the app crashes. I thought it would be nice to play with, but since the app's are either not stable enough or not even available, [read] Keywords:

Nokia replaced the N900 with faulty display with a brand new one. Let's see if we can put MeeGoo on it. On second thought, I will probably wait for the packaged Maemo version because this is even for a freak like myself a bit too much for a 'simple' phone. [read] Keywords: wiki

Quick tip: Loading indicator on partial refresh xPage
Fri, Oct 15th 2010 3:14a   Vince Schuurman
If you do a partial refresh in a large database, it may take some time for the application to react. Since there is no visual sign of activity users may get a bit frustrated and click multiple times. Of course it is not the frustrating bit that motivates us to fix this, it is the multiple clicking that impacts performance ;) Solution: Show a loading indicator if you do a partial refresh: Add a 'loadingPanel' with a suitable background, set the z-index high and display to none and add the [read] Keywords: xpages application database

Very very strange problem that took quite some digging into. Create a database with some documents with reader fields, a view and an XPage. On the xPage, add a datasource to the Domino View and two computed fields; one with dominoView.getColumnValues(0).size() and the other with dominoView.getEntryCount() Now (pre)view this xPage in a browser and you will see that both fields will show the total document count in the view independent of whether or not you have read rights on those documents [read] Keywords: domino xpages database server

Location, organisation and especially the speaker line-up was really impressive. I did notice however that the saucijzen broodjes and the worstenbroodjes raised some eyebrows with the international speakers, but once assured that the meat (if any) was pork related they were kind enough to approve the Dutch delicacies [read] Keywords: lotus
