  36. <content:encoded><![CDATA[ <span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">Today we pushed up
  37. some changes to the OpenNTF website. The previous area &quot;IP and Legal&quot;
  38. has been split down into &quot;IP&quot; and &quot;Legal&quot;. The Legal
  39. area covers legalistic documents for aspects such as our bylaws, IP policy,
  40. privacy policy etc. If you're looking for practical content about the IP
  41. process and how to apply it, you should look instead at the IP area. A
  42. lot of the content here has been restructured or slightly reworded to better
  43. explain why we do it, why you want us to do it, and do make it less daunting
  44. to implement. It may seem scary if you've not done it before, but in practice
  45. it's very straightforward and our IP Manager Jesse Gallagher will help
  46. you through any typically minor amendments, if they are needed.</span>
  47. <br />
  48. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">Hopefully we've
  49. updated all links within the site, but if you spot any or have ideas for
  50. any improvements, please let us know either on the OpenNTF Slack chat or
  51. posting to our @OpenNTF Twitter account.</span>

  69. <content:encoded><![CDATA[ <span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">When the free non-production
  70. Domino server license was launched on <a href=""
  71. title="developerWorks" target=_new>developerWorks</a>
  72. earlier this year, it brought that area of developerWorks to the conscious
  73. awareness for possibly the first time. I looked at the &quot;<a href=""
  74. title="Communities" target=_new>Communities</a>&quot;
  75. sub-page and, in particular, the &quot;Social&quot; area near the bottom
  76. on the right. That highlighted that there were Twitter feeds being publicised
  77. that were not being maintained. That needed addressing.</span>
  78. <br />
  79. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">CollaborationToday
  80. has a team curating the content that appears there in a variety of categories
  81. and the Home Page of OpenNTF has a widget that displays new releases. There
  82. is content that could and should easily be blogged by <a href=""
  83. title="@Collab2day" target=_new>@Collab2day</a> and
  84. <a href="" title="@OpenNTFProjects"
  85. target=_new>@OpenNTFProjects</a>. But we're all busy people
  86. and we endeavour to work smarter. There are tools to automate posting to
  87. a Twitter account and one of those that I've been using since the end of
  88. last year for various integrations is <a href=""
  89. title="IFTTT" target=_new>IFTTT</a>.</span>
  90. <br />
  91. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">For those who
  92. haven't used it, IFTTT allows you to set up &quot;recipes&quot; which will
  93. perform some action based on something else occurs (<b>IF</b> <b>T</b>his
  94. <b>T</b>hen <b>T</b>hat). Two of those endpoints are an RSS feed and Twitter.
  95. So for a few months now we've had various recipes so that if there is a
  96. new feed item, IFTTT will automatically post a tweet. But CollaborationToday
  97. includes a variety of categories and few will be interested in all categories.
  98. So to make the tweets more useful and more informative, there are different
  99. recipes for each category, adding a prefix to the tweet depending on the
  100. RSS feed category filter, as you can see below.</span>
  101. <br />
  102. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif"><img src="$File/ifttt.jpg"
  103. alt="ifttt.jpg" style="width:500px"/></span>
  104. <br />
  105. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">You can see the
  106. result below:</span>
  107. <br />
  108. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif"><img src="$File/twitter.jpg"
  109. alt="twitter.jpg" &nbsp;style="width:500px"/></span>
  110. <br />
  111. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">Currently there
  112. is no RSS feed for new project releases, so that is proving less straightforward
  113. to automate. But obviously that's feasible, it's just going to take some
  114. custom development.</span>
  115. <br />
  116. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif"><b>UPDATE:</b>
  117. As a duplicate tweet just reminded me, I also set up an IFTTT recipe for
  118. the main OpenNTF account to automatically tweet new stories via the OpenNTF
  119. Blog RSS feed. The lesson to learn is automation is great until you forget
  120. what you've automated!</span>

  139. at Social Connections, we announced the winners of the OpenCode4Connections
  140. IBM Connections Customizer contest. To support the contest there was a
  141. great amount of effort from Christian Guedemann, Martin Donnelly and others
  142. to set up the infrastructure and enablement materials to help ensure the
  143. contest was a success. Even though the contest only ran for a short period
  144. of time, the numbers were impressive:</span>
  145. <br />
  146. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">- over 40 organisations
  147. were provisioned by IBM during the pilot phase</span>
  148. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">- 20 organisations
  149. developed or partially developed something for the contest</span>
  150. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">- there were 11
  151. submissions which went to voting and you can see all repositories on <a
  152. href="" title="OpenCode4Connections'
  153. GitHub" target=_new>OpenCode4Connections' GitHub</a>.</span>
  154. <br />
  155. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">The winners were:</span>
  156. <br />
  157. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif"><b>Enhanced Activity
  158. Stream - Jay Agrawal</b></span>
  159. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">This project contributed
  160. a notifier and infinite scroll to the Activity Stream in Connections and
  161. was something Jay had previously built as custom code in the header.jsp
  162. of the homepage of Connections and extended into the Connections Customizer.
  163. As the <a href=""
  164. title="ReadMe" target=_new>ReadMe</a> says, by taking
  165. the code you can also add this functionality to a Connections 5+ instance.
  166. Jay is also a first-time contributor to OpenNTF, so it's great to be expanding
  167. our contributor-base.</span>

  174. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif"><a href=""
  175. title="This project" target=_new>This project</a>
  176. is a very unobtrusive contribution which analyzes the tone of the status
  177. update, allowing the user to review before posting. The status is analyzed
  178. in intervals of 2 seconds while the update is typed. In the screenshot
  179. below it's been highlighted because, as I'm sure you can tell, it blends
  180. well with the rest of the content around it.</span>

  186. Widget / Watson Workspace Links - Brian Gleeson</b></span>
  187. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">The <a href=""
  188. title="first project" target=_new>first project</a>
  189. adds a weather widget to the community overview page of a chosen community,
  190. based on the community's UUID entered in the JSON. If you want it to apply
  191. to all communities, the &quot;match&quot; property of the json can be removed.
  192. This points to an XPages application running on Bluemix and the Weather
  193. Company data from Bluemix and is a great example of integrating all these
  194. technologies into Connections.</span>

  200. title="second project" target=_new>second project</a>
  201. again can be contributed to a specific community using the UUID or to all
  202. communities, by removing the &quot;match&quot; property. This allows posting
  203. to a Watson Workspace defined in a watsonSpaceId property. You'll also
  204. need to set up a Watson Workspace App, adding the appId and appSecret to
  205. the JS file.</span>

  214. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">A special award
  215. was given to Daniele Vistalli who contributed not a customization per se
  216. but <a href=""

  224. <br /><span style=" font-size:10pt;font-family:sans-serif">Some time ago
  225. OpenNTF investigated the use of <a href=""
  226. title="Open Badges" target=_new>Open Badges</a> to
  227. reward those who get involved with us. It's something we first became aware
  228. of when IBM issued them to IBM Champions, but for various reasons we've
  229. not been in a position to progress it. However, this contest gave us the
  230. opportunity to issue the first Open Badge, to our winners. You'll notice
  231. the badge features a laurel wreath (in pink, the colour associated with
  232. the current developments around IBM Connections) around the new OpenCode4Connections
  233. logo. Thank you to our contest winners for their patience with our faltering
  234. steps on this new journey!</span>

  239. Open Badges out wider during the coming months for various initiatives
  240. and you will see how we will vary the badges for our different brands.</span>

  421. Tookit was to make the IBM Connections API easy to consume from any Web

  424. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">It seems to be the right moment, &nbsp;for
  425. IBM and the OpenNTF community to join forces and bring the Social SDK to
  426. the next stage. The community has already moved on with the SocialSDK for
  427. bugfixes and also enhancements. But now it's time to make the SocialSDK
  428. ready for the future. Please join the discussion about the direction of
  429. the Social SDK under </font><a href=><font size='2' face="sans-serif"></font></a>
  430. <br />
  431. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Why? Because you as a possible consumer
  432. of the SocialSDK are the right audience to bring your needs, wishes and
  433. dreams to the planning board. Help us to understand what Framework, Server
  434. and Tools you use. Give us feedback, how you have used the SocialSDK, what
  435. worked well for you and where you struggled.</font>

  458. <content:encoded><![CDATA[ <font size='2' face="sans-serif">The application development landscape of
  459. today's world is completely upside-down. While in the past a platform has
  460. to integrate all and should consume open standards, in today's world a
  461. platform should be capable of <i>being </i>integrated everywhere and <i>providing
  462. </i>open standards. This shift is a logical consequence of the new paradigms
  463. of microservices and microservice-oriented architecture. While the previous
  464. times an application development platform had to provide as many services
  465. as possible to make the development easier, today's world is more pure
  466. then ever! But what to do with existing platforms like IBM Domino? Are
  467. all the services of IBM Domino only become obsolete because of a new development
  468. paradigm?</font>
  469. <br />
  470. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>IBM Domino: Rock-Solid, Low-TCO,
  471. and Over 25 Years of Proven Capabilities</b></font>
  472. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">IBM Domino delivers a lot of strong
  473. services, which are easy to consume if you use IBM Domino as a application
  474. development platform. In the beginning, the services where only available
  475. for IBM Notes applications, later via Java or COM API for other rich client
  476. platforms. With XPages, IBM began to deliver an extended application development
  477. experience, based on the at-the-time popular JSF Framework. XPages not
  478. only used JSF, it extended it with a lot of brilliant concepts. Even in
  479. today's microservice world, XPages is still one of the fastest and most
  480. complete application development platforms and there are thousands of applications
  481. developed by a huge community, running and bringing value to its users
  482. and customers! But instead of feeling proud of the value that these applications
  483. bring to their customers, for some different reasons a lot of developers
  484. feel themselves unworthy and lousy developers. </font>
  485. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">... But back on track. IBM Domino is
  486. still rock solid and, since FP8, has a recent Java runtime. Feature Pack
  487. 9 will bring Designer to the most recent Eclipse-based development platform.
  488. But that's not all!!</font>
  489. <br />
  490. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>REST APIs and SmartNSF</b></font>
  491. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">To make IBM Domino even more valuable,
  492. IBM is providing for the standard services of IBM Domino existing and newly-designed
  493. REST APIs. The following services are for the first phase in focus:</font>
  494. <br />
  495. <ul>
  496. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Data Service</font>
  497. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Calendar Service</font>
  498. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Freebusy Service</font>
  499. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Mail Service</font>
  500. <br />
  501. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">But there are more under discussion,
  502. like Directory Service, Configuration Service, and others.</font>
  503. <br />
  504. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">But only providing this service is<b>
  505. 20% of the work for success</b>. To support the adoption and usage of these
  506. services, IBM's Dave Delay has shared a set of OpenAPI Specification based
  507. files for <a href=""
  508. title="feebusy and calendar on OpenNTF's Github Repository" target=_new>freebusy
  509. and calendar on OpenNTF's Github Repository</a>. The OpenAPI Specification
  510. is today's standard for documenting REST APIs, and the tooling at
  511. leverages the OpenAPI Specification to generate source code for the server
  512. implementation and, even more importantly, the client code to consume and
  513. test the REST API.</font>
  514. <br />
  515. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>Complete the Story with SmartNSF</b></font>
  516. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Millions of IBM Notes Applications are
  517. still out there, providing value to their customers and covering valuable
  518. business needs. What to do with these applications? There are several proven
  519. approaches to modernize such an application. Starting with building XPages
  520. Applications, using frameworks like Aveedo, Darwino, or Sapho, or exposing
  521. the business logic via a REST API. And, to be honest, since version 5 it
  522. is possible to write REST APIs based on LotusScript agents, the Extension
  523. Library provides a proven REST Service Component, ODA has a REST service
  524. framework, and the XPages Toolkit provides a mechanism as well. So why
  525. write another REST API Framework (other than &quot;because it's fun&quot;)?</font>
  526. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">SmartNSF has a single purpose: inspired
  527. by Node.js, it lets you define a full REST API with a single file. It protects
  528. your business logic and lets you intercept the REST service calls with
  529. defined events. SmartNSF is designed for low- and medium-complexity IBM
  530. Notes applications and targets the existing Notes/Domino developer. You
  531. will be surprised about the simplicity of the approach, so give it a shot!
  532. We (Martin Jinoch and I) have released <a href=""
  533. title="Beta 2 and are working on Beta 3" target=_new>Beta
  534. 2 and are working on Beta 3</a>. Our target is to deliver Release
  535. 1.0 at Engage.UG. Release 1.0 should contain the capability to export the
  536. REST API as OpenAPI Specifications and will also contain a wizard to generate
  537. the REST API.</font>
  538. <br />
  539. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">I hope you now have an first impression
  540. and you can understand why REST services are so important. Again (and yes
  541. it's a repetition), today's application development platforms no longer
  542. have to integrate as much as possible: instead, they have to be ready to
  543. <i>be </i>integrated everywhere.</font>
