In this show, Shean P McManus returns with an awesome demo on using AngularJS and the Pocket website.
In the beginning of the show I talk about a couple of things community and XPages related. Where to ask XPages questions for instance.
However the biggest news is this:
I’ve been elected the director of XPages.Info!
I talk more about this in the opening of the show. Please tune in.
Note: This demo and show was a RUSH job.
Between my libsyn.com hosting and YouTube, the total downloads/views for NotesIn9 have now hit 300,000.
Not too shabby for my little corner of the internet I think. Was almost a year ago that I announced 250,000 downloads. So looks like there’s still strong interest in XPages. It’s also good to see people doing lots of videos on their own site or via OpenNTF!
I do have more shows coming up. A great one by Sean McManus will be up next.
Hope everyone has a great 2015! Thanks for watching the show.

It’s the time of year again. Every year my family plays a simple game to get into the holiday spirit. It’s competitive and borderline cut-throat at times but at the core it’s simple. We count the number of Christmas Trees that we see on cars and trucks. By count I mean the first one who sees it and calls it gets a point. And by calls it I mean the first person who shouts “TREE!” get’s that tree as a point. It’s actually loads of fun while still stressful haha.
Last year I made a website – http://treeonatruck.com and wrote a quick little XPages Mobile Controls app where you could sign up, enter all the players in your family and keep track of the score. Last year there were 25 groups from several different countries and several hundred trees spotted. That was pretty cool.
Anyway – this year I waited too long to start working on it but I ditched the mobile Controls app and relaunched the website app using XPages, Bootstrap and the really cool BootCards project.
I’m still working on the site in my off hours. I hope to get the leaderboard working next and integrate pictures. Once it’s all done I’m sure it’ll be coming to NotesIn9 as well.
Anyway, if you want to play along – just sign up. Add members to your team. Read the rules. It’s an honor system thing so play fair. The game starts FRIDAY. Not before. We’ve already seen one tree on a car AND a whole truck carrying trees to a store. And even though they didn’t count I’m still ticked that certain family members called them before I could.
I just added a comment section so please leave me a note if you have any problems with the site.
In today’s show I take a break from the Learning XPages series and do a little demo on updating a project in source control. So it kind of goes with the Learning XPages series but really isn’t part of it.
The Learning XPages series is going on a little break while I work on a more important holiday project – but hopefully that project will turn into shows as well.
As always let me know if you have any comments or questions.
In this show I continue on to the goal of CRUD. CRUD stands for Create, Read, Update and Delete. By the end of this show we should be able to achieve all 4 actions against the Company document.
I’ve not done anything to really make this app look pretty yet. Honestly I’ve given the UI very little thought so far. I’m trying to just focus on the core functionality at the moment so the UI stuff doesn’t distract. I do want to better integrate Bootstrap to clean up the UI at some point when it makes sense.
Note: I’ve been pushing a bunch of these shows out quickly. I filmed them a while back in one evening. I believe I have one more small one then I’ll probably take a little break from this series as I have another personal XPages project that must be ready by Thanksgiving.
In this show I demonstrate how to setup and set using a Java “Page Controller”. This is a technique that Jesse Gallagher came up with and I absolutely love. Without a doubt it saved me a TON of work on a recent day job assignment. There’s a little effort involved in setting it up but it’s so worth it in the long run.
In this show we finally start coding. Horaay! I’m going to create a form and a couple views to start setting up how the data for the applicaiton will work and then I’ll go right into some Java which will act as a bridge between our application and the data that gets stored into the database itself.
This show should be particularily good if you’re interested in starting to use Java with your XPages applications.
Note: This episode was filmed a couple weeks ago when I was watching the Philadaphila Eagles beat up on the New York Giants. The Eagles won 27 – 0! It was a good night.
IBM has officially released an Interim FixPack to correct the Mobile Controls issue! Horaay! As I said in a previous blog we got this a tad early and have deployed it and that has corrected all the XPages specific issues of iOS 8 devices talking to our Mobile Controls application.
Also in this fix are some other key security fixes for issues that’s been discussed heavily recently.
Here’s the link. Go get it!
It looks like what is in this fixpack was a lot of work. So a BIG thanks to the teams at IBM for getting this out as soon as they did!
FYI – I’m not an admin but I believe this is specific to Domino 9.0.1 FP2. So you need to be on that level. But let’s face it. That’s the best version to be on anyway.
Also – Big thanks to Steven Podrouzek for sending me the link that saved me time from having to dig through my Twitter history.
Pete Janzen just tweeted this:
I’m happy to say that we’ve been testing this fix for a little while and 2 days ago put it into production. Yay! This does seem to fix all the known XPages / Mobile Controls / iOS 8 issues.
Sadly not that our Mobile Controls app works on iOS 8 we discovered a new issue that I blogged about the other day. But that’s strictly an Apple problem. Nothing to do with XPages.
Sounds like it’ll be available next week.
Big thanks to IBM for all the hard work in getting this out do fast!
