I remember in 8.5.1 a similar issue where passing an error object to some logging started throwing an error because …

OpenNTF Snippets – Investigating The Design

As you’ve hopefully seen, we’ve relaunched XSnippets as OpenNTF Snippets. There are quite a few changes, some decisions made that are less than traditional, but driven by some key factors. Indeed some may seem bad practice and are certainly not what may be made for other applications. But the driving force is a deep understanding …

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 …

Plugins Not Picked Up From Update Site

Recently I’ve been working on an extensive OSGi REST service plugin, based on ODA Starter Servlet. Local development is using a pde launch configuration to load my plugins directly from Eclipse.
