Understanding Notes Client JVM Heap

It’s (hopefully) widely-known that one of the key influencers on Notes Client startup speed are the jvm settings in <notes>\framework\rcp\deploy\jvm.properties.

2014: The Year Notes and Domino Stopped Looking Like Notes and Domino

Notes and Domino have long been lampooned as a bad user experience. From an app dev point of view, XPages came along and gave us some freedom. Notes 9.0 gave us a fresh UI and some nice usability enhancements (Ctrl + v to paste as plain text, Quick Find box, Group By Date etc). On …
