Quick Tip: Did you know? DDE uses .gitignore  

By Oliver Busse | 5/23/24 10:42 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

ne thing I recently found out is that Domino Designer respects the .gitignore of your on-disk-project (ODP). In general it’s obviously helpful that this file is respected in your local repositories and with your favourite git client. I wasn’t aware though that Domino Designer also uses this file to decide whether or not to import a resource from the ODP into the NSF.

Running MkDocs in a container  

By Oliver Busse | 4/18/24 11:40 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

I recently used mkdocs again, the lovely documentation framework which comes with several useful plugins, nice styling and built-in PDF and static website generation. Sometimes it is a bit tricky to get everything installed on your machine to make in running, such as Python 3 and several add-ons, so you may want to run it inside a container.

Attention, REST service user!

I lately came across a problem with Domino 14, but it turned out that this issue applies to 12.0.2 FP3 as well. When you use the REST service control from the Extension Library to provide a custom REST service, you will get an exception which has nothing to do with anything in your XPage or your Java code. The root cause is yet to be examined, but the defect article is already up:

Quick Tip: CKEditor not loading - a possible cause  

By Oliver Busse | 12/14/23 7:17 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

I recently noticed an issue with the CKEditor on XPages not being displayed for edit mode. The editor doesn't show up completely. A quick glance using the developer tools showed a resource not being loaded and then causing an error: I am using English as my browser language (and also on the OS level) but I wondered why this particular resource was attempted to load, showing the particular UK version of the English locale file. Another check of my browser settings gave the answer:

Notes & Domino 14 - missing the Notes.jar? It's still there  

By Oliver Busse | 12/8/23 2:09 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Today HCL released version 14 of Notes and Domino. Despite I tried the beta version in the EAP I wasn't aware that the Notes.jar was relocated. In my test VM I installed the new version just to find my Eclipse projects failing to build due to my variable NOTES_HOME not pointing to the correct location anymore. So, if you also got your little WTF moment, keep cool and relocate your variables to <NotesProgramDir>/ndext/notes.jar now.

Error 404 - Item Not Found Exception after upgrade to Domino 12.0.2  

By Oliver Busse | 2/2/23 2:21 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

For a customer we also set up a dev environment using our application platform Aveedo where we are creating a brand new CRM system. Very soon we faced the problem, that pages were not loaded properly (404 error) at random occurrence. After some testing with various XPages memory settings etc. I opened a case, and it turned out: there is a problem in the com.ibm.xsp.core_12.0.2.20221101-2131 plugin lib, which means in the XPages core. HCL support immediately forwarded this to the dev team and they were able to create a testfix for us which solved the problem. The fix is addressed for FP1 of 12.0.2.

Big things to come

On Monday this week, I witnessed the future of app development - without a heavy IDE but somewhat "on Domino". There was also another announcement from HCL - HCL Volt MX. Technology-wise HCL Volt MX has nothing to do with HCL Domino Volt. The term "Volt" is just something HCL wants to be understood as their Low-Code idea in general.

I am currently sitting in my hotel room near Amsterdam Schipol airport. I missed my flight in the morning because the Dutch train canceled several connections and the train I was in finally also had delays due to technical issues on the track. Another delay resulted in the need to change the train at Amsterdam Central. Anyway, I didn't make it in time, I was about 1 hour late. But why I am here?

Where am I? Using GPS data in Notes apps  

By Oliver Busse | 10/27/19 9:27 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

With the latest beta of HCL Nomad and the beta 2 of Notes/Domino 11 you are now able to use GPS functions in your Notes apps. This might be interesting for apps that users will use exclusively on their mobile devices to track where they were when the document was created.
