Thinking of U and I...

Vaadin: installation, use and integration with Lotus Domino

Vaadin is an open source Web application framework for rich Internet applications. I'll show you a brief example of integration with Lotus Domino in Eclipse environment

I discovered Vaadin accidentally and I think that could be a good framework especially if you are a Java developer and want to create web application quickly.

From Wikipedia:

"The framework incorporates event-driven programming and widgets, which enables a programming model that is closer to GUI software development than traditional web development with HTML and JavaScript."

A brand new Javascript library for progress activity monitoring

Filed Under:

A brief explanation on how to integrate this new JavaScript library, pace.js, within our XPages. Very cool... and, I hope, very useful

Many times I have used this technology, using some of the most popular Javascript frameworks (Prototype, JQuery ...), but sometimes manage progress indicators can be a little bit boring.

This library is right for us.
