Last year at Lotusphere, XPages burst onto the Lotus Domino application development landscape. Since then, the developer community has embraced XPages and delivered compelling Lotus Domino Web solutions. 8.5.1 delivered on the vision by providing the ability to build an application once for the Web, the Notes client or expose as an iWidget.Come hear about other 8.5.1 enhancements, what is coming in 8.5.2 and glimpse towards the future.**
Annunciate le novità per le XPages (nella 8.5.2)
- REST e nuovi advanced controls
- modalità off-line e repliche locali
- wiring con le composite applications
- Performance improvements
- iWidget mashup
- hidden field text control
- RichText editor migliorato
- riuso delle funzionalità esistenti: LS libraries, forms, vies
- utility per convertire vecchi form, viste in xpages
- nuovi DataSource (jdbc, db relazionali)
Understanding the XPages architecture is key to building performant scalable enterprise-ready Lotus Domino web applications. We'll show how to go under the hood to discover functional features that help your application perform and scale well. You'll learn about design patterns and techniques that ensure your applications are optimally tuned for your business requirements, and we'll show how to integrate existing business logic -- without increasing performance cost.**
Tips&Tricks veramente utili per incrementare le performace
- i tool di monitoring consigliati: Firebug, YSlow, PageSpeed
- IBM Xpages Profiling tool: database per il tuning delle XPages in termini di CPU, cache ecc...
- consigli per il rendering delle pagine e per migliorare il JSF cycle lifecycle

- come usare Java nelle XPages per mantenere performance ridotte
In the form of "aspect - goal" that's the key sentences of the Domino server future:
- Database management tool improvements - Leverage a single tool that performs all application/database maintenance tasks (eg compact, index update, ...).
- SAML - Provide greater flexibility regarding secure authentication.
- Platform expansion – Lower costs, improve flexibility and scalability (64 bit, virtual env, Linux platform).
- RESTful APIs – Enable ISV's and application builders with broad set of API's usable from any application endpoint.
- DXL – Roud-trip DXL design elements with no loss.
