NotesIn9 141: Java vs JavaScript Throwdown

This is a VERY DIFFERENT NotesIn9.  It’s less of a normal show and more if a response to a recent blog post regarding one persons opinion on the value of Java in XPages and the Value of the UI vs the backend. Actually this show is more of a really long “rant”.

This show could absolutely suck.  I pretty much broke all my rules and tried to have fun with it.  I do give my thoughts on things so maybe there’s at least a little value there.

There’s no Demo.  There is only the trainwreck.

I would say that if you do give it a shot.  Stick around for the end. That’s when I get my most immature.  For the first time ever there’s even a few bloopers at the very end.  No not me, but one of the cast members.

I want to thank Mark Roden for the original post.  Please check out the comments.  There’s a lot of good information in there.  Here’s the shortlink:

I hope you like it.

NotesIn9 138: XPages Combobox ImprovementsJ

In this show I take a look at using a Combobox inside XPages.  I’m going to demo how to use Java – but it’s NOT scary Java – I show you everything.

We’re going to show the user a pretty value in the combobox but get a hold of and store the key value for our use.

I’m also going to show how you can create categories inside the combobox. That’s kinda cool I think depending on your situation.


Oliver Busse – @zeromancer1972 – has another example of this on his blog.

In that post he’s reading the data in from a view.  Cool!


Update 2:

Ove Stoerholt just did a blog post on comboboxes.  He discusses one “Gotcha” that you need to avoid.  A really good post!

NotesIn9 135: Using Java in XPages Part4

Tim Tripcony returns again for another great show in his Java series.  Today he’ll be introducing the concept of a “MimeBean”.  A “MimeBean” gives the ability to save Java Objects inside a notes field.  It opens up many new possibilities for storing data in your applications.

Not to be missed!

In this show Tim Tripcony continues his series of exploring the use of Java with your XPages application.  Today’s show discusses linking buttons to Java, dealing with ReadOnly properties and how to deal with explilcit getters and setters – but only when you want to!

There’s even a little more Bootstrap goodness in here!

NotesIn9 133: Using Java in XPages Part 2

In this show, Tim Tripcony expounds on the last episode where I did a very basic CRUD example that’s based on Java binding rather then document binding.

I had mentioned one of the problems with building the java classes was that I would create getters and setters for each field. Tim’s going to show how you can build your code to avoid that. He also improves the CRUD example with a little BootStrap Magic!

Tim will return for Part 3 tomorrow!!

NotesIn9 106: Intro to Java Controller Classes

In this show Jesse Gallagher, a great new contribitor, comes on to give us an over view of using Java Controller Classes to help seperate your business logic from your XPage.  By moving your logic outside of the XPage you get much cleaner XML source for your XPage.

If you’re new to the thought of using Java inside XPages, I’d suggest don’t focus on the actual syntax that Jesse’s using here but the overall concepts.  This is very similar to using Lotusscript custom classes to hold your business logic so you have cleaner agents and view buttons.

Hope you like it.

I’ve very excited to announce that for today’s show I have Jeremy Hodge on as a guest speaker! Jeremy is a great developer and friend to the Notes Community. He’s contributed many articles over on and his own blog is found here.

Starting with this episode, Jeremy is going to do a series of videos that is designed to Introduce Java to the XPages Developer.

I’ve been wanting to have a guest speaker on the show for a while and Jeremy’s done a a great job out of the gate with this very timely content. This really came from a couple of posts over on Sasa Brkic’s Blog last week.
