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."

3 strumenti utili per chi lavora con i vari DBMS

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe (Abraham Lincoln)

3 strumenti utili per chi lavora con i vari DBMS

Filed Under:

Ecco qualche strumento molto utile per chi come me deve interagire con diversi DBMS contemporaneamente.

Abituato da anni a lavorare quotidianamente solo con database ad oggetti o comunque no-sql (vedi ZODB, Redis, MongoDB), devo dire di essermi trovato un pò arrugginito sui fondamentali, gli RDBMS. Non tanto sulle basi teoriche che sono solide, ma sulla pratica, cioè negli strumenti.

Tests with WebDriver in Eclipse


Tests with WebDriver in Eclipse

In this article I'll propose a short tutorial on how to easily create automated tests for your web applications using WebDriver for Selenium (in Eclipse environment)

Selenium is a portable software testing framework for web applications.

As known, it provides a record/playback tool for tests (Selenium IDE), but recently it was improved with the inclusion of the WebDriver API, a really useful feature.

Forms with the same alias is *still* a bad practice (Xpages Bug)

Filed Under:

Probably a bug found in XPages 8.5.2 engine

There is not to boast, but perhaps the development team RedTurtle found a bug in the engine of XPages 8.5.2.

It's happened during the development of an application where we had to connect a datasource to a Xpage. It appears that, in case you have two forms with the same alias, the list of available fields always refer to the first of two forms that is found in the list (we know, it's a very bad practice assigning same aliases to different forms, but we inherit this scenario from someone else...)

Only renaming the alias you obtain the right binding of the fields, even if the engine allows you to refer to the two blur.

By submitting the matter to two of the leading experts on the subject, Bob Balfe and John Mackey, we had confirmation that the problem exists.

UI Architect for IBM Workplace Designer has been alerted and will investigate the problem.

Lotusphere Day 1 - JMP106 - “Kum Bah Yah” Meets “Let's Kick Butt”: The Integration of IBM Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino with Microsoft Office, .NET, and IBM Lotus Symphony

Welcome to 2010, where Lotus Notes and Domino are just part of your corporate toolset. This session will introduce you to integration of Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 with Microsoft Office, .NET technologies,, & Lotus Symphony. We'll start with the basics and build up to mail merge, exporting to a spreadsheet, charting, presentations, and integration on the Web. Advanced topics such as Visual Studio Tools for Office, advanced development with C#, and integration with Lotus Domino Web Services are included. Integration with Xpages, Google Docs, Sharepoint, ODF, OOXML, and Windows Explorer will highlight the options available. Every sample is new or updated, so even past attendees will get something from this session.***

John Head e Alex Kassabov hanno mostrato in un talk di sicuro effetto scenico riguardante l'evoluzione del mondo dell'integrazione tra Lotus Notes e i principali productivity tool come Miicrosoft Office e Lotus Symphony, in entrambe le direzioni.

Anche in questo caso la collaborazione tra IBM e OpenNTF farà si che un il progetto open si concretizzi in un template scaricabile per l'utilizzo.

Le novità sono molteplici: innanzitutto l'annuncio dell'implementazione della classe SymphonyApplication, che sgrava lo sviluppatore dall'utilizzo delle classi UNO per l'integrazione con OpenOffice, sia numerosi esempi veramente utili per creare spreadsheet, documenti e presentazioni a partire da documenti notes con un semplice click.
