NotesIn9 206: Rest Servlets
In this episode, OpenNTF Board Member and long time IBM Champion, Paul Withers returns with a great show on how to get starting building REST Servlets inside an EXTERNAL Library. This is a longer show as getting started with Libraries is a little involved but believe me it’s so worth it. Just like you take advantage of the Extension Library you can now make your own custom library.
NotesIn9 205: Leverage Domino Development with New Tools!
In this show Eric McCormick returns to talk about ways in which Automation can help you. While this is not needed for basic XPages development if you want to level up on your skills be sure to check this episode out!
Eric has some further information about this show on his blog. Check it out!
NotesIn9 203: A Smart Admin Bootstrap Theme for XPages
This show brings us not only a brand new contributor to NotesIn9, but it’s the first official appearance of newly minted IBM Champion Csaba Kiss! Congrats Csaba!!
Csaba is an amazing developer and friend to the community. He was my personal number 1 choice to become an IBM Champion and I’m so happy he has been recognized for his contributions.
His website is : http://xpagexplorer.org/
In this episode he’s going to look at using a popular Bootstrap theme inside XPages.
This is also the first show produced by John Jardin. John is a long time IBM Champion and he has contributed on over 17 NotesIn9 episodes. I’m very excited to have John join the team!
NotesIn9 202: Using Grunt With XPages
This show is also the first show from Oliver Busse, a new Video Producer for NotesIn9. I’m beyond excited to have his assistance in getting more content shared with the community.
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.
NotesIn9 200: Access Server Databases From Code
Wow! Major milestone here. I really don’t want to make too huge a deal of this at the moment but I do have to say thanks for all the contributors that helped the show get to 200 episodes. NotesIn9 has contributed 94 + hours of free tips and tricks to the community. Most importantly to me, 41 contributors have donated their time and talents to the show and I am so grateful for them helping out with my silly little corner of the Internet. I could never thank them enough.
I had many ideas for what to do with this show and in the end I decided to try and help a viewer who sent me an email. NotesIn9 was created to help others so to me it seems so very appropriate to mark this milestone with at least an attempt at helping others learn to code.
Learn. Code. Share.
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.
