Java With Domino After XPages 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/14/19 2:45 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

IBM and HCL held a webcast today to detail some plans for Notes/Domino V11. There were some interesting tidbits elaborating on things like the pub/sub support, and it'll be worth tracking down a recording of the event when it's available. What's important for this series, though, is that this event served as the long-promised "roadmap" announcement for XPages.

XPages to Java EE, Part 13: Why Do This, Anyway?

In the introductory post to this series, I started by saying that I've come around to the idea that Java EE (and its kindred technologies) is the future for Java development with Domino, and I think it's worth taking some time to make the case that you should think so too. A lot of it starts with a nagging question: Is XPages Dead?

AbstractCompiledPage, Missing Plugins, and MANIFEST.MF in FP10 and V10

Since 9.0.1 FP 10, and including V10 because it's largely identical for this purpose, I've encountered and seen others encountering a couple strange problems with compiling XPages projects. This is a perfect opporunity for me to spin a tale about the undergirding frameworks, but I'll start out with the immediate symptoms and their fixes.

XPages to Java EE, Part 12: Container Authentication 

By Jesse Gallagher | 2/20/19 12:45 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Coming from Domino, we're both spoiled by the way it handles users and authentication. The server comes with an implicit directory far removed from the app, and so we just use that. Moreover, the HTTP "container" handles authentication for us: we configure whether we want HTTP Basic auth, simple session auth, LTPA, or SAML (I guess) authentication at the server/web site level, also far from the app.
