Last week IBM hosted the Think 2018 conference in Las Vegas which is IBM’s flagship conference that combines previous conferences like InterConnect and World of Watson. Below is a list of announcements and news that I, as a developer, like most.

Quick-Tip: Getting Rules to Work in IBM Verse 

By Oliver Busse | 3/22/18 1:06 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

One thing that bugged me for a long time since we migrated to IBM Verse SmartCloud was that my mailrules weren't working anymore. Though I checked and re-saved the rules via the Notes client (on the replica of the SmartCloud mail NSF) the rules did not work.

A Guide To Single Sign On 

By Gabriella Davis | 3/22/18 1:01 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Single sign-on, single identity and even password synchronization—in this session, we will take you through all the options available to minimize or eradicate logins across IBM's Collaboration Solutions (ICS); whether it is a Domino web server, IHS, Notes client, Traveler, Sametime, Connections or Verse, on-premises or cloud.

Congratulations, Paul Withers! 

By OpenNTF | 3/21/18 6:48 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

With great pleasure, the OpenNTF board likes to announce the latest achievement of one of our board members, Paul Withers, who was awarded the IBM Lifetime Champion on last Sunday at the IBM Think conference in Las Vegas!

Great Start to IBM Think 

By Paul Withers | 3/19/18 4:40 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

The IBM Champion and User Group day was a great start to IBM Think with some interesting sessions, although my morning was busy with delivering a session twice with Tony Holder and delivering a Lightning Talk. On behalf of OpenNTF we also launched open badges for user groups to thank them for their support of OpenNTF. More open badges will come in the future as we expand the programme further.

Think Week – With More Than A Little Help From My Friends 

By Gabriella Davis | 3/17/18 10:23 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

IBM Think starts tomorrow for me in Las Vegas. So obviously here I am in a LV hotel room drinking lots of water, trying to plan the sessions I want to see, when I’m going to be free and and then sign up for several of the labs. This year as well as my technical sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, I will be moderating and contributing to several “soft skills” sessions that are not about technology but about how we work.

Let’s Get Real – What’s Domino V10 – Feb 28 Webcast Synopsis 

By Andrew Manby | 3/15/18 1:43 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Last week we gave the Domino community a sneak peek into what’s currently in the HCL labs. Specifically, that’s available to share in our candidate Domino V10 release coming in 2018. What we covered in the webcast is not the complete story, we will be providing more information about V10 as the months unfold.

Let’s Encrypt now supports Wildcard Certificates and LE4D will support it too 

By Detlev Poettgen | 3/14/18 11:21 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

We’re pleased to announce that ACMEv2 and wildcard certificate support is live! With today’s new features we’re continuing to break down barriers for HTTPS adoption across the Web by making it even easier for every website to get and manage certificates. Wildcard certificates allow you to secure all subdomains of a domain with a single certificate.

Quick Tip: „Design replace failed: cannot add role 

By Oliver Busse | 3/14/18 11:11 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

This is basically for me to remember and to find it again once I stumble upon this message again. Sometimes you will get this error message when trying to refresh or replace the design of a database using a template. If so, please check if the template comes with a predefined ACL, especially roles.

Encryption in XPages: Remember to Set Xsp Properties 

By Paul Withers | 3/14/18 11:07 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Regardless of recent announcements, XPages is still my preferred option for standalone rapid application web development. Once an appropriate level of understanding of the lifecycle is gained, there’s a comfortable level of logic in how it works.

Display all allowed readers of documents in a view column 

By Karsten Lehmann | 3/6/18 11:46 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

By setting the programmatic column name and formula value of a view column to "$C1$", the column automatically displays the content of all reader items in the document. If there are any readers, the column also container the author item values, since these are also allowed to see read-restricted documents.

How SmartNSF came to rescue in a heavily surveilled little (bird) house 

By Robert Ibsen Voith | 3/6/18 8:56 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

One small hobby project of mine is a birdbox with an wifi enabled IP Camera. Much more fun to watch those small house sparrows build their nest and see how hard they work to bring up new kiddo-birds. The images from the web camera surfaces on an web page, and everything worked fine last year. However, firing up the camera this year, nothing showed up!

Next Project: ODP Compiler 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/5/18 5:33 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

One of the larger thorns in my side with my Domino development lately has been trying to automate builds of on-disk projects into NSFs via Jenkins. In theory, the process is pretty straightforward. It even works sometimes! However, particularly once you add in the necessity to deploy OSGi plugins to Designer first and want to run it from Jenkins, things get extraordinarily flaky: Designer may not launch properly from a behind-the-scenes Jenkins runner, the plugin installation may mysteriously fail, and so forth - and the error reporting is difficult at best.

Domino REST Service Plugins and Pre-Loading Caches 

By Paul Withers | 3/5/18 6:07 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Last week I had an email from Mat Newman passing on a query for a REST servlet plugin. The person was noting that when sending a tell http osgi ss command to the server, the plugin was showing as “<<LAZY>>” and only changed to “<<ACTIVE>>” after the first call, when the code in the Activator runs.

Domino 10 App Dev Thoughts - Be Scared, Be Excited 

By Paul Withers | 2/28/18 5:59 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Today’s webinar on Domino 10 brought a lot of announcements. I won’t cover the announcements about Notes Client here – we were teased about a slimmer client and auto-updating of that client, but I’m sure we’ll find out more at IBM Think. I’ve already blogged my thoughts about the Notes Client as well.

Upcoming events & the IBM Champions program 

By Femke Goedhart | 2/28/18 3:34 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

My blog has been really quiet the last few months for which my apologies. It’s one of those times where I simply don’t have time to blog nor the topics to blog about. But as there were a few things noteworthy lately I figured it’s time to do an update blog now.

Updated incinerate() 

By Devin Olson | 2/28/18 4:15 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

Back in August of 2013 I originally posted Nate and Tim's Excellent Recycle. Granted, if you are coding in XPages the OpenNTF Domino API has pretty much made the need for this method irrelevant (as the ODA's first goal is to eliminate the "ham-fisted Exception handling in the lotus.domino API"). HOWEVER, if you are doing non-XPages Domino Java code then this recycle method is still relevant.

[Notes 9.0.1 FP10] - "Script contains errors. Would you like to save it anyway." #ibmchampion 

By Ulrich Krause | 2/24/18 11:16 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

When editing code in the LS editor, code will become corrupt. I was able to recreate the issue with applications that have been created years ago as well as new applications that were created using 901FP10. The error is reproducible by other customers, too.
