OSGi, Maven and Building Domino p2 Update Sites

**SHAMELESS PLUG:** With me moving to HCL next month, it’s always important to ensure there is sufficient resiliency in the development teams of open source projects. There are always areas where OpenNTF Domino API may be of benefit, but there will be projects I’m involved in where it won’t. There will also be a big …

Understanding Pub Sub

One of the big amendments in Domino V11 is pub sub. It brings a lot of potential, but only with the proper understanding of how to leverage it. It’s a concept many Domino developers may be unfamiliar with, but one that has a lot of parallels in web development. In Vert.x there is the Event …

John Jardin added a web sockets server to our React application for our JavaScript session at IBM Think 2018, so …

What Domino Makes Trivial Number Two: Synchronous / Asynchronous Processing

Another topic that becomes key when moving beyond Domino is synchronous and asynchronous processing. But it’s probably something most Domino developers haven’t come across. LotusScript and standard Domino Java are single-threaded. That means your code starts at line 1, runs line 1, then line 2, then line 3. If line 4 is a function / …

Jesse Gallagher posted a thoughtful blog about the challenges for the way forward with XPages. It’s a challenge I’ve had a number of discussions around, many of which are ongoing. The reason there’s not a simple solution – throw whatever resources are required into XPages – is that it simply doesn’t make business sense. There …

Modernising Domino Applications: Technical Deep Dive Part Three

I didn’t realise this post was still in draft, so it’s took much longer than expected to publish. But it’s quite timely, because this covers Node-RED, and a blog post has been published this week covering some of the content from the slides of my session with Fredrik Malmborg at Engage. Still, better late than …

LotusScript and The “Static” Keyword

Moving from language to language, I’m constantly re-evaluating how coding improvements can be made to make the applications I work with more pleasurable and the code I write smarter. Unless a language has a narrow focus or limited power, there are likely to be aspects you’ve not dug into. That’s particularly the case if it’s …
