The State of Domino App Dev Post-Connect-2017 

By Jesse Gallagher | 2/24/17 11:07 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

I'm en route back from this year's IBM Connect in San Francisco, and this plane ride is giving me a good chance to chew over the implications for Domino developers. First off, I'll put my bias in this matter right up front: Darwino, which I've been working on and discussing quite a bit, is one of the three "chosen" vendors for app enhancement/modernization/what-have-you.

Over the past 12 months Red Pill Now has continue to explore new and exciting ways in which we can exploit the potential of Graph Databases.

XPages webmail – Using Mime Inspector to debug Mime 

By Cameron Gregor | 2/14/17 3:35 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

In a previous post in this series I did a bit of an overview on how MIME works. We also did a little bit about how MIME works in XPages + Domino land. With this knowledge in hand we can now start to analyse the different ways a ‘Pretty words, pictures and attachments’ can be stored in the document.

IBM Connect 2017 

By Paul Withers | 2/13/17 1:56 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

With a little over a week to go, IBM Connect 2017 looks set to be as busy as ever. 2016 was a challenging year as a Domino developer, testing the faith and patience of many. My attendance at IBM Connect as a speaker, Business Partner and IBM Champion may seem “business as usual”, but it has not been a straightforward journey. So I hope the experience is as positive as last year but with a more positive rest of the year.

Pasting Images into XPages CKEditor 

By Cameron Gregor | 2/13/17 1:03 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Programs like ‘Snipping Tool’ on Windows, are super useful for users to make a quick snapshot, do some quick markup on the image, paste into chat/email and send. Unfortunately when using the default configuration of CKEditor in XPages (the inputRichText control), support for pasting images is not available for all browsers, and even for the ones that do support it, the images are only pasted as a PNG data URI.

Setting Names, Readers and Authors the ODA Way

No matter how long you work with an API, there can still be surprises. Yesterday proved one of those for me. While troubleshooting an issue for someone with setting an Authors field in a document (it turned out there was an obscure bug that meant it was trying to recycle a String in a Vector), I shared two ways I’ve been setting Readers or Authors fields in an application using OpenNTF Domino API for a while.

Git Flow, Maven, ODA and Domino FP8 

By Paul Withers | 1/27/17 5:05 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

The last few weeks quite a large amount of my work has been outside the NSF, so using more standard development tools in a more standard environment. There have been some challenges but also some refreshing experiences.
