By Jesse Gallagher | 11/19/19 12:22 AM | Business - News | Added by John Oldenburger

I've been thinking lately about what I can do with the Open Liberty Runtime project. If you're not familiar with it, the gist of it is that it gloms the Open Liberty Java/Jakarta EE app server onto Domino to allow deploying up-to-date WAR-based apps "to Domino", sharing the server's access to NSFs.

Writing Domino JEE Apps Outside Domino  

By Jesse Gallagher | 11/9/19 10:59 AM | Development - Notes & Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

In my last post, I mentioned that I decided to write the File Store app as a Jakarta EE application running in a web server alongside Domino, instead of as an app running on the server itself. In the comments, Fredrik Norling asked the natural question of whether it'd have been difficult to run this on the server.

Another Side Project: NSF SFTP File Store  

By Jesse Gallagher | 11/6/19 12:48 AM | Business - News | Added by John Oldenburger

When I Know Some Guys kicked off, we bought a couple of Transporter devices to handle our file-syncing needs without having to rely on Dropbox or another hosted service. Unfortunately, Nexsan killed off Transporters a couple years back, and, though they still kind of work, it's been a back-burnered project for us to find a good replacement.

Configure Eclipse 4.6.x with HCL Notes 10  

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/4/19 11:24 AM | Development - Notes & Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

For years, whenever I needed to configure an Eclipse IDE for IBM Notes plugin development, I used Mikkel Heisterberg's instructions on his blog. Since I currently have a customer requirement to update an existing plugin that we built for them years ago to a newer Java version (1.8), I tried to set up Eclipse 2019-09 with HCL Notes 10.0.1FP2, but failed.

Pastures New, New Challenges  

By Paul Withers | 10/29/19 2:22 PM | Development - Connections | Added by Oliver Busse

After 14 and a half years at Intec, I’m moving on to pastures new. I’ve learned a lot and developed in ways that were never envisaged by anyone when I started at Intec. I’m very fortunate to have had a company that backed me, and I think we’ve both benefited greatly. But I’ve always sought to embrace opportunities and accept responsibilities throughout my career. And now is no different.

I ran into this with Domino on Docker. I noticed that the locale settings have not been detected correctly by Domino when running on CentOS with the German locale. It turned out that this is a more general issue on Docker with other locales than LANG=C or LANG=en_US.UTF-8.

Tika Troubles – Indexing Attachments

Seems to me like the first rule of software development runs something like “Don’t screw up things that have been working just fine for decades” but today we have this. Domino 10.01 FP 3. If we try to FT index any database and index attachments using conversion filters we get this.

Domino is used by, you know, actual business people  

By Ben Langhinrichs | 10/23/19 3:51 AM | Infrastructure - Notes & Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I must admit, there are times when I obsess too much about obscure little bugs in features that most people don't use. I own that. But then there are times when issues comes up that are absolutely standard business practice that are still FUBAR, and that makes me angry.
