Using Security-Restricted XML as an XPages Data Source

At ILUG I attended Paul Calhoun’s excellent session “Using XML and RDBMS Data Sources in XPages”. The XML element of the session built upon articles Paul had contributed to The XPages Blog and the Lotus Notes and Domino Application Development Wiki. Over the last few days I’ve been experimenting with various methods of using XML …

Creating a Live Text XPages Widget Revisited

Some time ago I produced a video, on Intec’s channel on youtube, showing how to use an XPage to create a live-text enabled widget. The beauty of this technique is it works in any 8.x Notes Client, it just needs a Domino 8.5.x server. I’m currently using the same technique to create a reporting sidebar panel for …

XPages: Accessing Server-Based Resources – External Database

This follows on from two previous articles where I outlined what became evident from the oneui themes, ways to reference server-based resources from XPages.

Breaking the Language Barrier: The Rosetta Stone of XPages Languages

When I first started on XPages last year, one of the big benefits was that virtually anything can be computed. When you do so, you get the option to use three languages: Expression Language (EL), Server Side Javascript (SSJS) or Custom. I immediately started using Server Side Javascript, but the others were a bit of a mystery. If …

My recent work on XPages in an existing web app

Over the last week I’ve been rather busy including some XPages functionality in an existing Domino web application, and as an example I wanted to explain why I chose XPages, some steps I took and the main challenge I encountered. XPages suited for this because: We wanted the available documents to change depending on selections, …

What is XPages? A Little Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing

There has been huge discussion over the last week on the future of Domino and how to maximise the power of the platform in the eyes of senior IT executives. That XPages is and should be part of that future, I am convinced. But recent discussions I have had, comments I’ve seen on the blogs …
