Quick tip: test HTML pages on a local webserver with NodeJS 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/14/18 4:10 AM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

At a customer we are building lots of microservices with Spring boot which runs on Pivotal Cloud Foundry hosted at the Azure platform. Some of these microservices are called from web pages with certain specific information, like field info. So in our projects we have most of the time a test html page to mimic the actual behavior.

I’ve made no secret of my liking for Watson Workspace. Recently the first part of integration between Watson Workspace and Connections Cloud has gone live. This is integration from Connections Cloud to Watson Workspace. The details are in the IBM Knowledge Center. Currently this comprises two areas of integration.

Here’s an intro to a new blog series I am starting to hopefully take us all through preparing for v10 of the ICS products due out later this year. If you have suggestions for what you’d find useful outside of the things I mention in the video please let me know. I’ll be using the hashtag #perfect10 for this.

Quick tip: run your Cloudant data everywhere with CouchDb 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/10/18 12:31 PM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

I moved our HR Assistant application to a Spring boot to run everywhere, but the data was still stored in a Cloudant database running on IBM Cloud. No problem, but not that flexible. So I was looking for a way to to store the data somewhere with minimum impact.

Repost: "On The Shoulders of Giants - How We Learn" 

By Paul Withers | 5/10/18 12:25 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Today, I came across via Twitter a blog post from Gab Davis, community and IBM Champion legend – and I make no apologies for calling her that, because she is. The blog post concerned me a lot because our community is lauded – rightly so – as being generally more helpful, more collaborative, more open than other IT communities.

During the past period, in addition to my developer tasks, I have also been assigned the administrator tasks for Notes Domino. One of the tasks that I recently performed is the upgrade of the HTTP Passwords in the Domino Directory to version 3 (V3)

The Champion & Confidence Dilemma 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/8/18 4:26 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

I wanted to share today something I’ve been dealing with for a few months and inspired by shares from others. For those of you who don’t know the IBM Champion program, in short it was set up to acknowledge the work done by people who contribute to their Community outside of their regular jobs.

Importing an SSL Certificate Authority into the JVM 

By Devin Olson | 5/7/18 3:29 PM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by John Oldenburger

Java code running on a Domino server (or from within a Notes client) can reach out and pull in information (such as with a REST API, or an HTTP GET) from an outside source. Due to the Notes/Domino security model, all of these communications must occur over an encrypted (HTTPS / SSL) channel.

An Introduction Into Configuring Domino for Docker 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/2/18 5:04 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

9.0.1 FP10 brings support for Domino on a docker platform. You may know that docker is a container solution but what does that mean and how could it affect your Domino infrstructure? In this session we’ll review how to install and run Domino in a docker container, whether it can support external clustering and the decisions to consider when designing container architecture.

Domino & Spring Boot: ScheduledTasks 

By Sven Hasselbach | 5/2/18 8:55 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

When developing Spring Boot applications running on Domino, there is a feature which runs out of the box and makes developers happy: ScheduledTasks. These are the equivalent for agents, but they are running directly in the HTTP task (which allows to access the complete Spring Application at runtime).

A small open source project: Cloudant REST API - elstar IT 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/2/18 8:54 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Kenio Carvalho

I got an idea to provide a Cloudant REST API, with the same endpoints of the Domino API but storing everything in Cloudant or CoucheDb. Which results in a Spring Boot application. All the endpoints of the Domino REST API are available in this new REST API.

NSF ODP Tooling Example Project 

By Jesse Gallagher | 4/29/18 5:01 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

This project demonstrates how to use the tooling to create an XPages library project and build an NSF that uses it within the same Maven tree. This example project also serves as a reasonable template for the standard kind of project setup I make for Domino nowadays, minus a compile-time test plugin (which I'll probably add in eventually).

NSF ODP Tooling 1.0 

By Jesse Gallagher | 4/28/18 6:14 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

A couple weeks back, I started a new project, and today I decided to declare it a 1.0. The premise of this project is simple: I really, really hate Designer. Since the original post, it's expanded into a set of tools that cover three main tasks

Navigators and RepeatTreeNodes - A Brain Dump 

By Paul Withers | 4/26/18 10:02 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

In an application I was extending, I wanted to use a Navigator component that worked very dynamically. It was to replace nested repeat controls. The Navigator has a RepeatTreeNode and it seemed a reasonable approach to nest them.
