A completely password-less IBM Notes set up using SAML and ADFS - the movie

By Darren Duke | 9/2/15 11:20 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

So in the post yesterday I kind of kicked IBM in the balls as bit. So today I'll give them kudos....while the Notes and SAML implementation is 9.0 is a bit ropey (it was new), in 9.0.1 they fixed all the issues and have now provided a truly impressive bit of functionality.

How to use 2 CSS Rules to replace the IBM Domino XPages Extension Library Picker Icons

By Chris Toohey | 9/1/15 9:11 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

The IBM Notes Domino XPages Extension Library (or ExtLib) controls offer a level of configurability and flexibility that addresses most XPages developers needs... but for those XPages developers looking to do something different with a control that's either beyond the scope of the original intended use or simply wasn't conceived at the time of the creation of the control, that Properties pane can look rather limiting.

Wrangling Tycho and Target Platforms

By Jesse Gallagher | 8/30/15 3:48 PM | App Dev - Web | Added by John Oldenburger

One of the persistent problems when dealing with OSGi projects with Maven is the interaction between Maven, Tycho, and Eclipse. The core trouble comes in with the differing ways that Maven and OSGi handle dependencies. The Maven way of establishing dependencies is to list them in your Maven project's POM file.

By Frank van der Linden | 8/27/15 4:21 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

In one of my XPages projects there was the need of a calendar display of data. First stop was the Demo application of the OpenNTF Extension Library, which contains a calendar control. After some attempts to get my data displayed in this control, I skipped it and moved to a JQuery plugin, FullCalendar.

By Chris Toohey | 8/26/15 11:56 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

The try, catch, finally syntax is both something that I use every day, and something that I think most Notes Developers may not be familiar with when they make the transition to Web Developers. For those of you unfamiliar with the syntax, here's a brief breakdown via code example.

MWLUG2015: AD113 – Speed Up Your Applications With Nginx and PageSpeed

By Eric McCormick | 8/26/15 11:05 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

MWLUG has been going great, as expected. The worst thing I’ve been fighting is the overlap of some really good sessions. In fact, mine went up against two other app dev sessions and one entitled “free beer”. It would seem I need to do a better job of bribing and/or coercing @RichardMoy.

The XPages and IBM Bluemix showstopper, for me at least

By David Leedy | 8/24/15 12:44 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Ok I’ll admit it.. I’ve not really been paying much attention to IBM’s Platform as a Service offering called “Bluemix”. For the longest time there was no XPages component. Of course I’d love to play with all the other technologies that it offers, and there are a lot, but as primarily an XPages Developer at the moment I just don’t have good time or practical ideas for anything else.
