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. Those articles (Part One and Part Two) concentrated on images, the most useful resource. Like many developers, at Intec we have a suite of databases with resources (some images, css files, […]

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.

Meditations on an Application

Yesterday Chris Toohey provided one of his typically insightful articles about the change of nomenclature with Domino R8, from database to application. To paraphrase the article, it was a challenge to developers to think before hitting Ctrl + N, that a developer’s toolkit should contain reusable modules that are extended and assembled into an application.
