Getting started with Domino AppDev Pack Java API - Part 2  

By Martin Pradny | 10/28/20 5:47 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In my previous post I've shown how to quickly start coding with Domino AppDev Pack Java API. I used an insecure connection to avoid dealing with certificates, now it's time to fix this. If you are testing the new Java API, which is marked as a preview, you probably enjoy living on the edge and may also have a V12 EAP Domino server somewhere. This may help us see how the future may look.

Data from Domino 1: Rows ≠ Documents  

By Ben Langhinrichs | 10/27/20 4:09 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

A couple of weeks ago, we had a migration customer ask if we could change the way their data was extracted. In this case, we were going to CSV. I can't show their data or structure, but it contained a feature I lot of you will recognize: many, many fields correlated with each other by table rows. Since the customer wanted to retain the row-like association of the various items, we used Repeat By Item, a feature which allows you to export the same document multiple times with each element of a multi-value field or formula, matching up parallel items. We can include the UNID on every line or not, depending on whether we want to maintain the association the data had in Domino.

Update HTTPPassword item in names.nsf (backend)  

By Ulrich Krause | 10/26/20 3:29 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Yesterday, we ran into an issue with the HTTP Password in the person record in names.nsf. The problem occured after we upgraded the customers Domino server from V 9.0.1 to V11.0.1FP1. The customer has some backend processes installed that let them delegate the process of register, update and delete users and groups to different departments. One part of the process is a piece of code that sets the HTTP password in the person record. The issue was that the password was stored in clear text after upgrading the server. I looked into the design and could spot the root of the issue.

Are You Tired of Domino Designer?  

By NCUG | 10/16/20 9:53 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Poor old Domino Designer. It has received a lot of flak, and let’s face it: It’s very, very dated and not something you want for 2020. HCL now seems to have come up with it’s successor: Volt MX! First of all: Don’t let the Volt part of Volt MX fool you into thinking that this has anything to do with Domino Volt. HCL will be using the term Volt for all their low code products, and Volt MX is something else entirely.

Big things to come  

By Oliver Busse | 10/15/20 9:40 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Martin Pradny

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.

October Webinar - XPages Flexible View Control with Michael G. Smith  

By Paul Withers | 10/9/20 11:15 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

If you’ve been building XPages applications for any amount of time then you probably have struggled integrating view data into your apps and thought to yourself “it shouldn’t be this hard”. The Flexible View Control for XPages can simplify this process for you. The FVC is a re-usable XPages custom control built on jQuery and DataTables that sources data from Domino REST Services and xAgents.

A Notes-Client-Friendly Way To Access JWT-Protected Resources  

By Jesse Gallagher | 10/9/20 2:31 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Martin Pradny

I recently had call to access the Zoom REST API in a Notes client app so I figured it'd be as good an opportunity as any to use the HTTP and JSON classes added in V10 and 11. The basics there are fine enough - though those classes aren't featureful, they can get the job done. However, the Zoom API needs specialized authentication, beyond the username/password.
