Minor enhancements to the XPages Table Control 

By Cameron Gregor | 12/13/17 6:34 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

As mentioned in my previous post, I have started up a fork of the ExtLibX project and have started contributing to it instead of my previous GregorbyteXspLibrary. Last week I shared the JDBC Configuration Provider which uses Notes Documents to store the configuration info.

Update on Scheduled Xots / "Designer Lite Plugin" 

By Paul Withers | 12/11/17 4:02 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Some years ago I developed an XPages application that heavily used ODA. In fact, it was the first I used Xots in. At the time, I needed a scheduled agent to send email reminders. I was frustrated that the only option if I wanted code in the NSF was a Java agent, which required me to add a jar file of ODA into the Java agent and copy some utility methods from my XPages code across to the agent.

XPages JDBC Configuration via NotesDocuments 

By Cameron Gregor | 12/5/17 6:54 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

If you have used the Extension Library’s Relational controls, then you are probably familiar with the process of configuring your JDBC Connection details. You have the option of setting up a ‘named’ connection so you can reference a database connection by name. This involves creating an xml file.

Watson Developer Cloud Java SDK XPages Library

Recently I’ve been digging into the Watson Conversation APIs. With Java being my language of choice, the natural starting point was the Watson Brewery demo which integrates with Watson Workspace. This in itself was a learning experience as I finally stepped beyond the world of Eclipse to use IntellJ IDEA, as mentioned in the ReadMe.

My New Approach for Sharing XPages Controls and Extensions 

By Cameron Gregor | 12/1/17 7:45 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Over the past few years I have shared a handful of controls and techniques on my blog, and most of these I have made available on github in one way or another. Originally I was creating a separate github project for each one such as EmailValidator, PhoneNumberControl and the Messages Controls. After these few I decided it would be more efficient to create a single project that I could put them all into, so I then began to contribute them via my GregorbyteXspLibrary.

Over the weekend we upgraded our production Domino servers to get to 9.0.1 FP9 HF139(64-bit) & HF137 (32-bit). Well, we “tried” to upgrade the servers. Then all hell broke loose.

Domino and Jar Files 

By Paul Withers | 11/28/17 11:49 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Those of us who have been working with Domino and Java for some time know that one of the big strengths over LotusScript is the host of standard Java libraries that can be utilised. If you want better string or number handling etc, you have Apache Commons libraries. If you want Excel export, you have Apache POI.
