Preventing “Build Automatically” Via Policy

As one of the first steps in XPages training I cover making configuration and settings changes to Domino Designer to optimise your experience. One of those is switching off Build Automatically. Unless your day-to-day ID only has Editor or below access to applications, sooner or later having Build Automatically enabled will cause problems. Its enabled …

Why Source Control is Key to Everything

After a couple of days deep in XPages development (more on that shortly), I surfaced again to read Oliver Busse’s blog post about development IDEs. He makes some very salient points, but there is a more critical pre-requisite that’s not mentioned – source control, or rather DXL round-tripping. The root of the issue about development …

Update Site for Eclipse Coloor Themes

I’ve had the request to post the update site for Eclipse Color Themes that can be used in Domino Designer, built from version 0.12.0. I’m conscious it can be a bit daunting if you’re not familiar with Eclipse, and although I would encourage developers to have a go (the instructions are on my previous post), …

Eclipse Color Themes and Domino Designer

Jesse Gallagher, amongst others, has blogged before about installing the Eclipse Color Themes plugin into Domino Designer, to give a richer styling for editors. It’s something I did a long time ago and my preferred theme is part of the preferences I have exported from Domino Designer. But when I installed 9.0.1 I did a …

Restoring Domino Designer…Including Working Sets

Since 8.5.0 I’ve been searching for everything that needs to be done to restore Domino Designer. Some time ago I blogged about exporting and importing Domino Designer preferences but I had always struggled to work out which files / folders were required for Working Sets. Today I decided to do a clean install and finally managed …

Generating Javadocs for XPages Applications

A few weeks ago Stephan Wissel blogged about securing XPages applications using an ANT script and, in a side note, also recommended generating a Javadoc at the same time. For some time I’ve seen the Generate Javadoc… option on the Project menu of Domino Designer. If you’ve ever tried clicking on it, you’ll have found that …

They can be found in the Designer Help in IBM Domino Designer User Guide > Designing XPages Applications > Adding Controls from the XPages Extension Library > @Function (Extension Library).

Increasing Local History

I’ve always been a huge fan of Local History. It’s one of those pieces of standard Eclipse functionality that adds great power to Domino Designer. And because it’s standard Eclipse functionality it’s something developers find out about over time. So a bit of background quickly. Local History allows you to retrieve previous saves of design …

Managing Tasks and ToDos in XPages

Earlier this week I was running a technical enablement session on XPages for IBM. One of the first steps was to configure Domino Designer. I’ve championed before some of the benefits that Eclipse brought to Domino Designer, such as the search and local history (which has been my saviour on many an occasion!). But one I only …
