NotesIn9 201: Thoughts on the Future of XPages and NotesIn9
This show is the sequel to my recent blog post titled “No More”. As I said in that post I HATE doing opinion stuff but feel that I now must. I also HATE talking about myself but because of things that happened at IconUK that is also a topic in the show. Because I wanted to talk about IconUK the show has grown bigger then I originally intended. Sorry that couldn’t be helped.
As mentioned in the show I have LOTS of people to be thankful for, especially, Mark Roden, Rob Mason, Amanda Bauman, Tim Clark and too many others to mention. I want to thank everyone not just for the activity and comments around the Marky Roden video, but also all those who sent me comments showing support for the No More post. I’ve NEVER gotten that kind of reaction before and it meant a lot to me!!
The show does contains an announcement on the future of NotesIn9.
Once all that is out of the way I do give my personal opinions on the Good, the Bad, and the Future of Domino XPages.
At the end of the show I also have a clip from the end of the IconUK event simply because I just wanted to never lose it.
This show is about 38 minutes. There are no rules for today.
From the NotesIn9 Vault: Advertisements!
I’m still working on the next show, but to tide anyone over I thought I’d dig up some old advertisements I had done.
First I think this might be the only XPages TV ad ever!!
Then the kids played the roles of cousins to talk about Domino vs Sharepoint.
P.S. The boy is now taller then I am!!! WTH? 🙂
NotesIn9 199: Bitmask, Enums and Creating Excel reports from XPages
This is the big one! The last demo of my presentation at MWLUG 2016. In this show I’ll demonstrate how you can use something called a “Bitmask” and combine it with some Java code and the Apache Poi project to allow the user to create a custom Excel spreadsheet. The user will be able to choose any column they want from the data provided and save it to Excel. Users like that kind of stuff.
NotesIn9 198: Convert a Document to a Java Object in XPages
In this show I show you how I typically go about converting a Domino Document to a pure Java Object.
NotesIn9 197: Sending Alert Messages to an XPage
In this show I’ll demo a little thing I do where I combine page controllers with a custom java object and the Bootstrap CSS Framework from the Extension Library to easily send useful alert messages back to the user.
NotesIn9 196: No Dependency Page Controllers
We’ve talked about using page controllers before on the show, but typically I’ve used an external library. Today I’ll show a way to get started with page controllers with no external dependency.
I consider my move to page controllers as one of the best things I’ve ever done as an XPages Developer. Now there is no excuse for you to not consider using page controllers in your XPages applications.
NotesIn9 195: Use XPages To Fill a PDF Form
In this show I demonstrate how to take an existing PDF form, and use iText from inside XPages to populate fields on the form.
NotesIn9 194: Upload Files With PLUpload
Who likes the built in XPages File Upload Control? Well not me at least. In this show I’ll demo how to use PLUpload to better upload multiple files to your XPages application.
NotesIn9 193: Force User Logout from XPages
In this show I’ll demo how you can add some code to your application to force a user to logout after a certain period of inactivity.
Thanks to Steve Zavocki for the original blog post that this show is based on.
