By OpenNTF | 11/28/22 10:52 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

A few weeks ago, HCL released Notes and Domino 12.0.2, bringing with them a number of good features for users, developers, and administrators. To go along with these changes, the community at OpenNTF released new versions of several projects within a few days.

Setting up an environment to develop OSGi plugins for HCL Domino – 2022 edition  

By Mark Leusink | 11/27/22 2:51 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

While testing the v12 version of the org.openntf.domino library I found a bug that stopped me from deploying it to v12.0.x Domino servers. I found out what the cause for the issue was, so I decided to take a shot at fixing it myself. There was just one problem: I didn’t have a development setup for OSGi plugins anymore. Online I could find most of the steps involved, but the guides could use an update here and there.

String Functions Performance Considerations  

By Andre Guirard | 11/25/22 12:20 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

I’ve been doing some tests and I see Instr$ in LotusScript is still a lot slower when you start searching in the middle of the string. I wrote an SPR about this sometime back. The same is true of Mid$ – I wrote a timing test that uses Mid$ to get the 1st character of a string as opposed to the 27000th. The latter takes much longer, and I don’t understand why. According to the help docs it’s two bytes per character, so it should be trivial to determine the location of a character from its number position.

XPages Jakarta EE 2.9.0 and Next Steps  

By Jesse Gallagher | 11/22/22 4:54 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Keeping with my productive week off, today I release version 2.9.0 of the XPages Jakarta EE Support project. Similar to the previous release, this one contains new features primarily related to Jakarta NoSQL, but also has some improvements for JSF and a bunch of bug fixes and compatibility improvements.

More Open-Source Updates for Notes/Domino 12.0.2

The other day, I talked about some changes/workarounds for Notes/Domino 12.0.2. Today, I made a few updates to some of the open-source projects I maintain, including another update to the generate-domino-update-site Maven plugin.

Domino Designer 12.0.2 – Object and Agent list is empty  

By Ulrich Krause | 11/21/22 2:04 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

The issue applies to the 32 and 64 bit of the Domino Designer 12.0.2. It occurs in Forms, Views and Folders. Also, the issue only occurs when you open an application in Designer from the Notes workspace.

HCL Domino 12.0.2, Engage 2022 and HCL Factory tour Milan  

By Martin Pradny | 11/20/22 7:38 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I haven't published my recap after Engage this year and the recent HCL Factory tour in Milan is a great opportunity to write a summary about what's happening in HCL (mostly Domino) space. It's a mix of news about 12.0.2, future directions, and my impressions, so it can be a bit chaotic, but I got the impression that many people see it similarly.

Configure Eclipse 4.6.x with HCL Notes 12.0.1 FP1  

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/18/22 4:07 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Once again I had to ask HCL development for setup instructions how to launch the HCL Notes Standard Client from an Eclipse IDE, this time for Notes 12.0.1 FP1. The instructions I had gotten earlier for Notes 10 have not changed much (I think there's one additional VM argument at the end of the list), but enough so that they did not work anymore.

New release of Open Eclipse Update Site to fix issues with Win/64 Notes Client 12.0.2  

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/18/22 5:13 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

As Jesse blogged there are some issues in the new Windows 64 Bit Notes Client 12.0.2 that break the "Import Local Update Site" functionality of the standard Update Site template of Domino. To fix this and other issues, I just uploaded a new release of the Open Eclipse Update Site on OpenNTF.

Notes and Domino 12.0.2 came out today. Generally, there are some neat features in development and on the server, but there are also a couple things you may run into depending on your workflow and installation type.

I’m going to start a post that I will update regular when I get strange errors that can be hard to find the solution for. Feel free to post a comment or use the contact form to send me your strange errors and a solution or how to debug the problem.

Understanding Parentheses in LotusScript Method Calls  

By Paul Withers | 11/7/22 4:28 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Look at the following code and guess the error message. Class Person Public firstName as String End Class Sub Initialize Dim p as New Person Call outerPrint(p) End Sub Sub outerPrint(msg as Variant) innerPrint(msg) End Sub Sub innerPrint(msg as Variant) If (TypeName(msg) = "PERSON") Then Print msg.firstName Else Print msg End If End Sub The error message received will be a Type Mismatch, on the line innerPrint(msg). But the cause might be harder to work out - although the title of this blog post might point you in the direction.

MKDocs Sites on Domino  

By Paul Withers | 10/31/22 4:48 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In the last blog posts I covered using a Jekyll-based site on Domino. Jekyll is a popular documentation option based on Markdown, but another is MKDocs. MKDocs also has a number of themes - a default Bootstrap-based theme, one used by the Read The Docs service, and the one I’ve used, Material for MKDocs.
