AD108: The grand tour of IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.3 upgrade pack XPages capabilities.

Posted by:

Very informative session with lots of demos of the components available in Upgrade Pack 1. No information how skinnable the components are, but since they’re probably based on One UI v2.1 this shouldn’t be a problem. I would definitely look into this before implementing any components in an external site as they look… Well… Very much like Domino web based apps. Not brilliant, to be nice. 😉

With UP1 (Upgrade Pack 1) we now have access to using REST services. There are three different kinds, depending on where you wish to utilize them.

  • Domino Data Service
    When you’re not using XPages to access Domino data.
  • XPages REST Services Control
    When you ARE using XPages. This is more flexible then the above, so it’s preferred.
  • Custom Database Servlet
    When you need complete control! Requires Java skills.

There is a Kitchen Sink/Demo application that allows you to test all these new features and of course have a look at the source code. The application is automatically installed with the UP1.

The differences from the Extension Library are:

  • UP1 IS supported by IBM, where ExtLib is not.
  • UP1 shows the design element instead of just a computed text – enhanced Designer experience.
  • UP1 is fully accessibility compliant, where ExtLib may not be.
  • UP1 comes with an installer/uninstaller. ExtLib comes in a .ZIP-file.
However, UP1 are missing two things from ExtLib:
This may or may not be a deal braker for you.

Time to unveil our latest product!

Posted by:

In just a few short days Infoware will unveil our latest product (although still under development) – DomainPatrol Social, a graphical administrative tool for IBM Connections.

DomainPatrol Social

Administering IBM Connections can be a pickle. Working with IBM Connections for many years, we’ve seen the need to simplify the administrative process and to provide easy ways of performing tasks that currently don’t have any associated tools. Tasks that currently requires deep knowledge and manual changes to the IBM Connections databases.

With a fast and intuitive user interface, DomainPatrol Social is just plain easy to use. If you’re attending Lotusphere 2012, don’t miss the opportunity to see it for your self. Visit booth #206 in the Solutions Showcase to get a demo!

If you’re not attending Lotusphere 2012, keep your eyes on kickassadministrator.com in a couple of days. More information about DomainPatrol Social will be unveiled there when the Solutions Showcase opens on Monday 10:00 AM EST.

Stay tuned! 🙂
