Compiling and Testing XPages Plugins With Java 9+ 

By Jesse Gallagher | 4/16/18 1:16 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Thanks to 9.0.1 FP8, we've been able to use Java 8 on Domino for a while, and FP10 makes that support a bit more official at the OSGi level. However, Java 8 is no longer the latest Java runtime, and so anyone writing XPages plugins and compiling/testing them via Maven will likely run into a situation where the compiling JRE is 9 or above.

Watson Assistant Outside US 

By Paul Withers | 4/16/18 1:12 AM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

Over the last few months I’ve been digging further into Watson Assistant (previously Watson Conversation). If you’ve watched my OpenNTF contributions, that’s apparent from the XPages library I put up there which wraps the Watson Developer Cloud Java SDK.

Think 2018 – A new format 

By Femke Goedhart | 4/11/18 11:19 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Two weeks ago I returned from Las Vegas and due to personal circumstances I wasn’t able to post my opinion on the event sooner. So a bit late but here are my two cents on a few days in Las Vegas!

IBM Connections and IBM Sametime group chat are moving to Watson Workspace ! Please join us !

During last years one of most valuable resource for my job was the Skype group related to the ICS products, where IBM Champions , IBMer, BP and customers was collaborating for free resolving issue and giving great advice about configurations.

java.security.AccessControlException kills productivity 

By Sven Hasselbach | 4/9/18 2:34 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Dear IBM, can you please remove the totally useless java policy restrictions? Especially for agents running on the server? I can’t imagine how much life time and customers money was spent during the last decades just to find a workaround for these limitations.

Scheduling XPages Code - Video and Addendum 

By Paul Withers | 4/9/18 1:13 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Following the blog posts and the demo, which took some time, I’ve finally created a video on my YouTube channel, which you can also access below. It’s quite a long video but that’s because I go through all that I’ve gone through in the blog posts and more.

LotusScript Agent Send Email to Multiple Receipients Per Recipient Including a Doc Link Based on a Search Formula 

By John Oldenburger | 4/5/18 4:38 PM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday I created a LotusScript Agent for sending emails to multiple receipients (per receipient) including found documents and a doclink based on a search formula. In response to the Tweet I received the request to publish the Agent. Below a short description and the sample code of the LotusScript Agent.

What I am thinking about IBM Think 

By Frank van der Linden | 4/5/18 10:59 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

2 weeks ago I have attended IBM Think in Las Vegas. The super conference of IBM by merging all the other conferences, like InterConnect, Edge, Amplify, World Of Watson and Connect/Lotusphere.

IBM Domino and GDPR, what is this? 

By Fredrik Norling | 4/4/18 5:29 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

On the 25th of May this year a new set of rules come in affect for companies that deal with European citizens. This will give some basic rights to people and the information related to them. This will affect all companies in EU or working against EU, so if you are an US based company but have customers inside EU you are affected by this.

Scheduling XPages Code - Part Six 

By Paul Withers | 4/4/18 2:06 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

So far we’ve covered using Node-RED triggering REST services which could be SmartNSF routes, XAgents or custom Java REST services in OSGi plugins – and indeed any REST endpoints, on Domino or beyond. Apart from re-using XPages code, there’s no real advantage so far over LotusScript or Java agents.

Scheduling XPages Code - Part Five 

By Paul Withers | 4/3/18 3:45 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

n the previous part we used a basic XAgent and a SmartNSF custom route to trigger Xots tasks. But both still required setting up a Xots task as a specific Java class. As long as all we’re wanting to do is process a REST service and send a basic response, there are more things we can do to make it even easier.

IBM Think Presentations 

By Paul Withers | 4/3/18 3:37 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

At IBM Think I presented four sessions. Two were on The IBM Champion and Community Day on Sunday. One was titled “Social Zero to Community Hero” with Tony Holder and Alex Ivanov, who was also announced as an IBM Lifetime Champion that afternoon. This detailed what a Champion is and the different paths a champion takes.

IBM Think through Maria’s eyes – although I forgot to bring my sunglasses 

By Maria Nordin | 3/31/18 7:56 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

I wasn’t going to go to IBM Think. It was not even in my plans. Would this be the year since 2011 I would miss out on that yearly energy boost I normally get from IBM Lotusphere/Connect? The boost that keeps me going with high spirit long and well into the summer.

Build your own Watson Workspace Linux Client 

By Christoph Stoettner | 3/29/18 6:12 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Watson Workspace Clients are only available for Windows and Mac OS. I’m a 100% Linux user on my devices and I use a Windows virtual machine only if I can’t avoid it. To communicate with colleagues, IBM and DNUG I need to use Watson Workplace, opening the web view is possible, but then I need to search the right tab or forget to open it. Since some weeks there is Zoom (Web / Video meetings) integrated with Watson Workspace too.

LetsEncrypt Announcing - Lets Encrypt for Domino v2.0 - Just Do SSL 

By Detlev Poettgen | 3/28/18 1:12 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

If you are already using LE4D, be sure to update to the new version 2.0. Starting March, 16th, the renewal of certificates generated with version 1.0 is longer possible due to a changes Let's Encrypt made to their CA-API-infrastructure.

Run Your Notes Apps on Your Ipad Without Any Development 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 3/28/18 11:55 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

The conference IBM Think was held in Las Vegas from March 19th to 22nd. Over 30 000 people were there, and the conference covered subjects like collaboration, IBM Connections, blockchain, cloud, encryption and artificial intelligence. As I’m an IBM Champion for ICS I was mostly interested in the portfolio of IBM Collaboration Solutions.

IBM Think Review 3 - Domino App Dev 

By Paul Withers | 3/28/18 11:49 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

I was fortunate enough to have a number of discussions with various people from IBM and HCL while I was at IBM Think. Some of those were with people I’ve known for a while, like Jason Gary and Barry Rosen, while others were with newer contacts like John Paganetti, Andrew Manby and the (quite new) marketing people.

IBM Think Review 2 - ICS Announcements (Excepting App Dev)

There were a host of announcements at IBM Think, some of which I may have missed. But I’ll cover all the ones I did catch here. I will leave Domino app dev for a separate blog post covering everything announced about V10 to date as well as my thoughts about what they mean to all kinds of Domino developers.

IBM Think 2018, my thoughts 

By Wannes Rams | 3/27/18 8:03 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

Back from Vegas a couple of days now, adjusted to the time difference and Summer time (almost). Time to reflect on the week I spent at Think. Was it worth it? did I learn new cool things? Did I got reunited with friends I had not seen in a while? Did I meet new friends? But most importantly, did I get the vibe? You know, that sparkle that makes you smile again, the winding up of an old school alarm clock, enough turns to rock a full year, the one that gives you the energy to pull of big projects, take on new things…

Time to reTHINK – Application Design and Modernization for IBM Notes and Domino 

By Red Pill Now | 3/27/18 5:42 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Last Week’s IBM Think conference was very different to recent Lotusphere and Connect conferences for a wide range of reasons. In fact for me, having attended my first Lotusphere back in 2010 (Project Vulcan), this was my first major IBM event in which the star (within the ICS portfolio) was a product named Domino! The message would have been more impactful if the ICS presence had not been such a small part of the Think event itself. For me the major take-away from the event was that Domino was back and we need to start rethinking what that means!

Think! - Back to the Future - SocialShazza 

By Sharon James | 3/26/18 8:41 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Think is over and man that was full on. To say this conference was massive doesn’t actually do it justice. The show floor and think park took most of the ground floor of the Mandalay Bay conference centre. A wander around the show floor could easily take an hour without stopping by any booths.

IBM Think Review 1: Non-Technical Observations

There will be a number of reviews of IBM Think from me, on various topics – gone are the days when there was a very tight narrow focus to my attendance at an IBM conference. But this first post is a review of some of the non-technical aspects of the conference.

Quick-Tip: Getting Rules to Work in IBM Verse 

By Oliver Busse | 3/22/18 1:06 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

One thing that bugged me for a long time since we migrated to IBM Verse SmartCloud was that my mailrules weren't working anymore. Though I checked and re-saved the rules via the Notes client (on the replica of the SmartCloud mail NSF) the rules did not work.

Great Start to IBM Think 

By Paul Withers | 3/19/18 4:40 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

The IBM Champion and User Group day was a great start to IBM Think with some interesting sessions, although my morning was busy with delivering a session twice with Tony Holder and delivering a Lightning Talk. On behalf of OpenNTF we also launched open badges for user groups to thank them for their support of OpenNTF. More open badges will come in the future as we expand the programme further.
