@ThisName and The Power Of Repeat Controls

After using XPages for some time, I am currently coding an interface for 7.0.x Notes Client to allow users to review and update multiple documents at once. Not surprisingly, I’m getting a bit frustrated at how easy it would be in XPages. Just add a repeat control, define the data, add one set of controls, …
