Before you can start developing a Servlet as an OSGi Plugins, you must set up a development environment first. To do this, download Eclipse IDE (Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers) and XPages SDK from OpenNTF (The XPages SDK is a helper to create the JRE environment and the Target Platform).

By Sven Hasselbach | 4/21/17 6:10 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

This is a new serie about developing high performance REST applications on top of Domino. It will contain my presentations from SNoUG and EntwicklerCamp this year and describes all required steps to develop, build and deploy these servlets on a basic level. The code used in this serie is already available at GitHub.

I love Pandas! 

By Simon ODoherty | 4/19/17 3:54 PM | App Dev - Cognitive | Added by Oliver Busse

You can now download your logs from your conversation workspace into a JSON format. So I thought I’d take this moment to introduce Pandas. Some people love the “Improve” UI, but personally I like being able to easily mold the data to what I need.

OrientMe in a test environment. How to make it work 

By Roberto Boccadoro | 4/13/17 11:47 AM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by Oliver Busse

For all my test systems I do not use a real domain name, I usually go with something like server.roberto.local or the like. This is a problem when you try to install the new OrientMe component that IBM has shipped with Connections 6.

Deploying Angular 2 Apps to Bluemix 

By Niklas Heidloff | 4/11/17 9:12 AM | App Dev - Bluemix | Added by John Oldenburger

Over the last months I’ve done quite a lot of Angular 2 development (now Angular 4). Below is a description how to create a new Angular app and deploy it as Docker container to Bluemix in just a few minutes. There are several ways to deploy Angular apps to Bluemix. For example you can build a simple Node.js web server to host the files. Or you can leverage existing HTTP servers like nginx.

Swagger for Domino Developers - Part Three: Mock Server and Thanks Stephan Wissel 

By Paul Withers | 4/11/17 8:41 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

As you may have seen, Stephan Wissel has recently left IBM to join SalesForce, as Rene Winkelmeyer and Mikkel Heisterberg did last year. because this part of my blog series will cover Stephan’s session from IBM Connect earlier this year and setting up a mock server for an OpenAPI (aka Swagger) definition, it seems a good time to thank him for his efforts over the years.

By Niklas Heidloff | 4/5/17 1:39 PM | App Dev - Cognitive | Added by Oliver Busse

One of the newer IBM Watson offerings that I really like is Watson Knowledge Studio. It basically allows identifying information in unstructured data. Below is a quick overview of the Knowledge Studio functionality.

Using IBM Watson Discovery to query Unstructured Data 

By Niklas Heidloff | 4/5/17 1:15 PM | App Dev - Cognitive | Added by Oliver Busse

In my previous blog entry I described how to use Watson Knowledge Studio to create models to identify information in unstructured data. These models can be used by the Watson services and offerings Watson Discovery, Watson Explorer and Watson Natural Language Understanding. Below is a quick intro how to use Watson Discovery to query unstructured data.

Swagger for Domino Developers - Part Two: Swagger Editor 

By Paul Withers | 4/5/17 1:07 PM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

In Part One I gave a bit of background on Swagger. Now onto some tools. The Swagger Editor comes in an online version but you can also install it locally. My preference was previously to use the online version because the local install used NodeJS, so it was a bit outside my comfort zone. After IBM Connect, it was apparent NodeJS was something I should get exposure to, even though JavaScript development is not one of my preferences.

By Eric McCormick | 4/5/17 12:03 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

I’m on Notes in 9 again, with a “grab bag” of a couple of tools I’ve put together recently that may be of a varying degree of useful for other Domino + XPages developers. You don’t need these to do development, but for the right person, they may help with their development workflow.

New in Fix Pack Feature Pack 8 is the ability to move the view index files out of the NSF. NIF is the technical term for these index files and end with the file suffix of NDX. I decided to upgrade my production cluster to FP8 and turn on this new feature that was originally slated for 9.0.2. Here's what I did.

New logging feature in IBM Domino FP8 when using Reverse Proxy - X-Forwarded-For 

By Jesper Kiær | 3/28/17 8:42 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

When using a Reverse Proxy (like Nginx) is in front of a IBM Domino web server you have the issue that the IP address of the client accessing the Domino web server is not forwarded to the log files on the Domino server. What you get is the IP address of the Reverse Proxy instead...which is not very helpful.
