Development Server Installation Gotchas

Following on from my last blog post, when I came to installing Domino I encountered two issues, both of which I’ve encountered before and both I’d forgotten the resolution and struggled to find it. Making mistakes is unavoidable. Making the same mistake twice, however, is. So I’m resorting to my standard resolution: blog about it. …

OpenNTF Domino API, Graph Data Models and Visualization

For some time the OpenNTF Domino API has included Tinkerpop and an implementation to store content in a graph database structure. Recently I’ve been digging into that further for potential projects, prompted also by a redevelopment of that area of the OpenNTF Domino API and Nathan’s upcoming session at DanNotes.

A couple of weeks ago Jesse Gallagher posted a blog about getting the JSF faces-config visual editor working in Domino Designer.

Configuring Eclipse for Domino Debug Plugin

Some time ago Niklas Heidloff blogged about three kinds of XPages developers – those who just use drag and drop with SSJS / JavaScript; those who use Java but only in an NSF; and those who develop with Java outside the NSF. For some time I’ve been doing some development outside the NSF, but after …

Adventures in Plugin-Land

Towards the end of last year we were asked about undertaking a Notes client plug-in development project. At the time my plug-in development experience was zero. Apart from a brief look at the source code of the Extension Library source code, my only other Eclipse experience was from about six years ago using the XML editors. And …

Enhancing Your Lotus Experience – A Couple of Usability Tips

While at EntwicklerCamp a couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to share a couple of usability enhancements which seem to have slipped under the radar of some developers. The first is a useful resource for developers using XPages. As many will know, SVN is possible within Domino Designer now and from all the …
