Daniel Nashed's Blog 

By Daniel Nashed | 5/23/19 5:28 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

This week I had a couple of discussions about start script management and deployment. I have been at a customer who wanted to keep their existing none-standard locations for the Domino data directory and also the binary location. Now with systemd environments we have another file that contains the path to the main script logic which is located by default in /opt/ibm/domino/rc_domino-script.

Follow Up to What’s New in Sametime V10 and Beyond? 

By David Hablewitz | 5/23/19 5:28 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

Good news with persistent chat and with eliminating WAS and DB2.  Persistent chat is coming in V10.  WAS and DB2 will be eliminated in V11 or V12.  System Console is also eliminated in V10.  V10 also supports login on multiple devices concurrently.  It is worth listening to the replay (at 1.5x speed).  Be sure to…

Modernising Domino Applications: Technical Deep Dive Part Two 

By Paul Withers | 5/23/19 12:10 PM | App Dev - Mobile | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Last time I covered Notes Client and XPages modernisations. In this blog post I’ll cover Domino Mobile Apps enhancements. DMA is already available on iPad, with Android and iPhone to follow. You can use a Notes Client application on mobile with no changes. My personal view is that if you just hand it over, without review, without modernisation, without consideration, you’re doing it wrong.

Domino Server Health – Monitoring and Managing @ Engage 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/22/19 2:49 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

This is my session on Domino Server Health given at Engage in Brussels last week. If you’re a Domino administrator how do you decide what to monitor on your servers and how to manage them ? What are the key things to monitor? How do good practice management tools such as statistics reporting, DDM, cluster symmetry, database repair and policy settings make your work lighter and faster. Finally we’ll talk about some of the “must dos” in the day, week and month of a Domino admin.

As usual the Engage usergroup conference was a highlight. Here’s my summary and how to keep Norwegian roads safe with Domino! I’ve already written a little bit about the conference here, with links to my photo album from the event.

Modernising Domino Applications: Technical Dive 

By Paul Withers | 5/20/19 9:19 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Last week I did a session on modernising Domino and XPages applications. Filling an hour seemed daunting when the session was accepted. So I went to the Oxford English Dictionary definition of modernisation: The process of adapting something to modern needs or habits

My Slides From Engage 2019 - De04. Java With Domino After XPages 

By Jesse Gallagher | 5/20/19 8:36 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Engage 2019 has come and gone, and I had an excellent time. I also quite enjoyed presenting my "group therapy" session on some options that XPages developers have for the future. In a lot of ways, it was similar to my presentation at CollabSphere last year, mixed with the various new developments I've talked about on here since then

Engage 2019, We Came, We Saw, We Heard 

By Keith Brooks | 5/20/19 7:02 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

I went to Brussels last week for the excellent conference Engage, run by Theo and Hilde with a supporting cast of dozens. Thank you for an excellent event and Dinners! Not only was I speaking, I was looking forward to the discussions with the HCL team and seeing friends and meeting new ones in person, and learn a few things along the way.

Engage 2019 Summary 

By Paul Withers | 5/19/19 7:31 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Historically Engage has been shortly after a major conference in US, so it’s been an opportunity to catch up on sessions missed there. This year it followed the Factory Tour by a few months. Unfortunately for me, most of the key products sessions conflicted with sessions I was delivering or preparation.

Impressions from Engage 2019 

By Heiko Voigt | 5/17/19 7:38 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Oliver Busse

Wow, these were three great days ! This has been my 2nd Engage Conference that i attended, the first one as a speaker. Theo Heselmans really outdid himself again this year by finding a cool venue (Autoworld Brussels) and topping it off with perfect logistics like always.

Stuck in Brussels

I spent this week at the Engage conference, which this year took place in Belgium. I gave a presentation yesterday about a solution that my colleagues at iSi have made. People went “wow!” when they saw it. Which was nice, and I sent them a message telling them that they had impressed people.

Engage 2019 Recap

Theo Heselmans and his wife Hilda have once again pulled off a wonderful event in Brussels. The world’s biggest ICS conference attracted attendees from all over the world, from as far away as New Zealand, Japan, the U.S.A and even La Réunion.

I have just returned from Engage UG – Theo Heselmans’ European conference, this year held at Autoworld in Brussels. A beautiful location, even for someone who cares little for cars (but enjoys belgian beer, frites and chocolate).

Notes 9/10 Standard Client issues in combination wth LibreOffice 6 installed fonts "NOTO" 

By Daniel Nashed | 5/16/19 3:37 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

This issue came up already some days ago but I wasn't able to reproduce. The first reports have been that this occurs when too many fonts are installed. But I had more fonts and I did not happen. This is a specific problem with the some fonts that LibreOffice 6 installs. LibreOffice 5 doesn't have the "NOTO" Fonts and works file.

Engage 2019: The good, the bad and the ugly: a not so objective view on front end development 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/16/19 3:35 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Oliver Busse

This week was Engage 2019 in Autoworld in Brussels. Theo Heselmans and crew did an amazing job, again, in a stunning venue. I was privileged to be speaking again. I was really surprised to have a full room. I enjoyed it very much to deliver my opinion on the current most populair front end frameworks, VueJS, React and Angular.

Engage 2019 – Part One 

By Milan Matejic | 5/15/19 7:31 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

The reason why this post is not carrying the title “Day One”, is because I flew over to Brussels already at Monday to attend the Champions Day Europe. The Champions Day event was interesting, I had a lot a fun to talking with fellow IBM Champions and finally meeting some of them in person. Today, at Autoworld, the first day of Engage officially started.

UPDATE on Domino Designer and LibreOffice issue 

By Jesper Kiær | 5/14/19 7:40 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In my other blog entry "Domino Designer (and Sametime) breaks..." I wrote about the issue many had with Domino Designer V10 breaking down with fonts issues, XPages not working, Sametime looking weird etc. After working on the issue for months I had finally nailed it down to LibreOffice 6 as being the culprit.

Domino Designer (and Notes Sametime) breaks in version V10, this is why and how to fix it. 

By Jesper Kiær | 5/10/19 10:14 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

There is a horrible bug in V10 (maybe V9FP10 too). In Designer open a form, close a form and everything breaks, font changes, XPages no longer works etc. In search for the cause Over the past many frustrating months I have been changing different settings, doing upgrades and downgrades, uninstalls, NICE, doing a fresh Notes install, install to different folder... to fix the issue

High Usage Views and publishing statistics to New Relic. Bug in Domino 10.0.1

I found a bug, or better an incompatibility between two new features of Domino 10. If you enable the High Usage Views feature, it will break the publishing of the statistics to New Relic.

Java Grab Bag 2 

By Jesse Gallagher | 5/6/19 1:45 AM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

Following in the vein of "Java Hiccups", I've had a couple things floating around my head lately that I think collectively make for a good post for Java developers, particularly those working in the Domino arena. Without further ado: Map#computeIfAbsent. This is a method that was added in Java 8 and, while it's not as big a deal as the addition of streams, it's one of my favorite additions and something I use very frequently.

Preparing for HCL’s Domino: What The Community Needs to Know 

By Paul Withers | 5/3/19 9:42 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Following on from my last blog post it’s also a good time to assess the readiness of the community for the future. I blogged last year about the importance of community to the product, and I reiterate that importance. But that didn’t make any value judgement on the health of the community. It’s worth highlighting a few points:

OpenNTF at Engage 

By OpenNTF | 5/3/19 7:02 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

It‘s probably fitting thatI’m writing a blog post about Engage sat in a coffee shop, on my iPad, using Domino Mobile Apps. The last year has brought the product a long way and one of the most significant new projects has been Theo Heselmans’ Wine App. Admittedly the OpenNTF Blog database is unchanged from the desktop version, but it’s probably only going to be seen by a handful of people, so investment is less beneficial.

Preparing for HCL's Domino: What Managers and Technical Need To Know 

By Paul Withers | 5/3/19 4:46 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

With Engage around the corner and the acquisition of Domino, Connections and more expected to close soon after, followed by build up to Domino V11 it’s a good time to assess readiness for the future. A few facts are clear: The pace of delivery of new features for Domino has increased significantly. That pace shows no sign of slowing after HCL closes the deal. HCL is committed to taking Domino into new markets and opportunities. The strategic direction for application development on the platform is evolving. Customers need to evolve to consider the needs / requirements for their strategies and their technical teams.
