Discovering the unexpected is more important than confirming the known

Without question, this quote by the great statistician George E. P. Box certainly applies to software development in general and Beta testing in particular. Beta testing is one of the most important phases of the software development lifecycle. Quality, performance, stability, security and reliability are some factors that are achieved by doing beta testing. Beta testing is the best chance to find bugs and usability issues before a product is fully released. While internal testing can uncover many problems, nothing can truly simulate real users trying to complete real tasks.

Rewriting The OpenNTF Site With Jakarta EE: Data Access  

By Jesse Gallagher | 6/22/22 3:08 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In my last post, I talked about how I make use of Jakarta REST to handle the REST services in the new OpenNTF site I'm working on. There'll be more to talk about on that front when I get to the UI and my use of MVC. For now, though, I'll dive a bit into how I'm accessing NSF data.

After opening a case I received 2 informations very quick informations ( thanks to Neha Bansal !! )

Domino ZFS Snapshot Backup  

By Daniel Nashed | 6/20/22 2:05 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

ZFS is one of my favorite file-systems. And I posted before about using it as a backup target. The integration is pretty simple with Domino backup, because it is a simple file backup. Now that we have the new VSS Writer for Domino 12.0.2 on Windows, it is time to look into ZFS snapshots.

Danube - Early Access 1 - What are you getting?  

By Cormac McCarthy | 6/13/22 1:46 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

On my blog last week recapping Engage, I mentioned the Early Access Program for Danube (Domino 12.0.2). This is quite unusual how early for a release of this type in that usually there will be some form of closed early access program ahead of a public beta. What this shows us is that HCL are confident in the release, but also completely transparent about where the code base is(or was two weeks ago when this was released).

Using AdminQ to process (web) user requests  

By Ulrich Krause | 6/2/22 4:12 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

First of all, AdminQ is not a typo. Administration Quick (AdminQ) is new as of Domino 12.0.1 and can be used to expedite the processing of Administration Process (AdminP) requests that affect the user IDs of web users, for example, HCL Verse users. The users must have IDs in an ID vault.

Recovering a lost Domino server notes.ini quickly  

By Daniel Nashed | 5/26/22 1:39 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

On Linux by default the notes.ini is in the data directory. On Windows it is per default in the binary directory. You could move it to the data directory, which would make sense from backup point of view in many cases anyway. But what if you have it in the program directory and install a new major version where you get rid of all your binaries as a best practice?
