  165. <content:encoded><![CDATA[ <font size='2' face="sans-serif">The application development landscape of
  166. today's world is completely upside-down. While in the past a platform has
  167. to integrate all and should consume open standards, in today's world a
  168. platform should be capable of <i>being </i>integrated everywhere and <i>providing
  169. </i>open standards. This shift is a logical consequence of the new paradigms
  170. of microservices and microservice-oriented architecture. While the previous
  171. times an application development platform had to provide as many services
  172. as possible to make the development easier, today's world is more pure
  173. then ever! But what to do with existing platforms like IBM Domino? Are
  174. all the services of IBM Domino only become obsolete because of a new development
  175. paradigm?</font>
  176. <br />
  177. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>IBM Domino: Rock-Solid, Low-TCO,
  178. and Over 25 Years of Proven Capabilities</b></font>
  179. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">IBM Domino delivers a lot of strong
  180. services, which are easy to consume if you use IBM Domino as a application
  181. development platform. In the beginning, the services where only available
  182. for IBM Notes applications, later via Java or COM API for other rich client
  183. platforms. With XPages, IBM began to deliver an extended application development
  184. experience, based on the at-the-time popular JSF Framework. XPages not
  185. only used JSF, it extended it with a lot of brilliant concepts. Even in
  186. today's microservice world, XPages is still one of the fastest and most
  187. complete application development platforms and there are thousands of applications
  188. developed by a huge community, running and bringing value to its users
  189. and customers! But instead of feeling proud of the value that these applications
  190. bring to their customers, for some different reasons a lot of developers
  191. feel themselves unworthy and lousy developers. </font>
  192. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">... But back on track. IBM Domino is
  193. still rock solid and, since FP8, has a recent Java runtime. Feature Pack
  194. 9 will bring Designer to the most recent Eclipse-based development platform.
  195. But that's not all!!</font>
  196. <br />
  197. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>REST APIs and SmartNSF</b></font>
  198. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">To make IBM Domino even more valuable,
  199. IBM is providing for the standard services of IBM Domino existing and newly-designed
  200. REST APIs. The following services are for the first phase in focus:</font>
  201. <br />
  202. <ul>
  203. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Data Service</font>
  204. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Calendar Service</font>
  205. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Freebusy Service</font>
  206. <li><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Mail Service</font>
  207. <br />
  208. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">But there are more under discussion,
  209. like Directory Service, Configuration Service, and others.</font>
  210. <br />
  211. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">But only providing this service is<b>
  212. 20% of the work for success</b>. To support the adoption and usage of these
  213. services, IBM's Dave Delay has shared a set of OpenAPI Specification based
  214. files for <a href="https://github.com/OpenNTF/das-api-specs"
  215. title="feebusy and calendar on OpenNTF's Github Repository" target=_new>freebusy
  216. and calendar on OpenNTF's Github Repository</a>. The OpenAPI Specification
  217. is today's standard for documenting REST APIs, and the tooling at swagger.io
  218. leverages the OpenAPI Specification to generate source code for the server
  219. implementation and, even more importantly, the client code to consume and
  220. test the REST API.</font>
  221. <br />
  222. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>Complete the Story with SmartNSF</b></font>
  223. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Millions of IBM Notes Applications are
  224. still out there, providing value to their customers and covering valuable
  225. business needs. What to do with these applications? There are several proven
  226. approaches to modernize such an application. Starting with building XPages
  227. Applications, using frameworks like Aveedo, Darwino, or Sapho, or exposing
  228. the business logic via a REST API. And, to be honest, since version 5 it
  229. is possible to write REST APIs based on LotusScript agents, the Extension
  230. Library provides a proven REST Service Component, ODA has a REST service
  231. framework, and the XPages Toolkit provides a mechanism as well. So why
  232. write another REST API Framework (other than &quot;because it's fun&quot;)?</font>
  233. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">SmartNSF has a single purpose: inspired
  234. by Node.js, it lets you define a full REST API with a single file. It protects
  235. your business logic and lets you intercept the REST service calls with
  236. defined events. SmartNSF is designed for low- and medium-complexity IBM
  237. Notes applications and targets the existing Notes/Domino developer. You
  238. will be surprised about the simplicity of the approach, so give it a shot!
  239. We (Martin Jinoch and I) have released <a href="https://smartnsf.openntf.org/main.nsf/project.xsp?r=project/SmartNSF"
  240. title="Beta 2 and are working on Beta 3" target=_new>Beta
  241. 2 and are working on Beta 3</a>. Our target is to deliver Release
  242. 1.0 at Engage.UG. Release 1.0 should contain the capability to export the
  243. REST API as OpenAPI Specifications and will also contain a wizard to generate
  244. the REST API.</font>
  245. <br />
  246. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">I hope you now have an first impression
  247. and you can understand why REST services are so important. Again (and yes
  248. it's a repetition), today's application development platforms no longer
  249. have to integrate as much as possible: instead, they have to be ready to
  250. <i>be </i>integrated everywhere.</font>

  332. development contest with IBM with a difference: there had to be a team
  333. involved. The winners were Frank van der Linden and Frederic Dehedin. The
  334. application covered a variety of technologies, including Bluemix, Cloudant,
  335. and Watson. It also used the Jackson JSON Mapper Frank also submitted to
  336. OpenNTF and which has been covered on this blog before. As well as being
  337. a competition winner, the project is of particular interest because it
  338. goes beyond the technologies typical of many OpenNTF projects. So much
  339. so that a session covering the application has been accepted not only for
  340. IBM Connect but also IBM InterConnect, as Frank covers in the post he has
  341. kindly penned below.</font>

  345. <br /><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif"><b>Introduction</b></font>
  346. <br /><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">The Job of a Human Resources
  347. Employee is hard work, especially when it comes to handle hundreds or thousands
  348. of Job Applications. Often, the Cover Letters are coming in unstructured
  349. formats.. Keeping these data in order and prioritize interesting job applications
  350. can be difficult.</font>
  351. <br />
  352. <br /><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif"><b>The details</b></font>
  353. <br /><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">HR Assistant is an XPages
  354. application running on Bluemix and is leveraging IBM Watson services which
  355. are helping:</font>
  356. <ul>
  357. <li><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">Using the Tone Analyzer
  358. to get the emotions of the cover letter and job descriptions. </font>
  359. <li><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">Using Personality Insights
  360. to get more insights of the applicant </font>
  361. <li><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">Using Alchemy Language
  362. to get the keywords used in the text in jobs and job applications. </font></ul><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">&nbsp;</font>
  363. <br /><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">We have decided not to
  364. store the data the traditional way in a Notes database, but in IBM Cloudant
  365. datastore.</font>
  366. <br /><font size='2' color=#2f2f2f face="sans-serif">The main reason to use
  367. Cloudant was to experience a new NoSQL data store. In the end it was a
  368. good decision, because the returned data of the IBM Watson service where
  369. pretty big, and with Cloudant we where not hitting any limitations.</font>

  427. the conference should meet that expectation.</font>
  428. <br />
  429. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>But for me, as a developer, there
  430. was always something missing at these events:</b> the hands on experience.
  431. Yes, there where labs (which I enjoy), but try to do something cool and
  432. crazy. Work together with other developer and do something special. There
  433. was no time - too many good sessions, too many good opportunities to talk
  434. with friends, customers, experts, and executives.</font>
  435. <br />
  436. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif"><b>This year, IBM and OpenNTF have joined
  437. together to something special</b>. We will hold a Hackathon on Monday,
  438. the day before IBM Connect. 10 Teams, each with 10 people, 10 hours (that
  439. was the vision). And each team solves an individual project, lead by Project
  440. Leader from the community. All teams should be staffed with people from
  441. the community, local students, and IBMers.</font>
  442. <br />
  443. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Our target is to break boundaries and
  444. integrate cognitive into all kinds of applications. It starts with giving
  445. Domino Domain Monitor the capability to send messages to Twitter (and maybe
  446. also direct to Watson Workspaces?); we will extend IBM Verse; we will use
  447. IBM Watson Work Services to analyze emails that are processed in a service
  448. desk; and we will customize IBM Connections Cloud.</font>
  449. <br />
  450. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">This day will become the day where your
  451. hunger for new and exiting stuff is satisfied!</font>
  452. <br />
  453. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">Do we have prizes for the winners and
  454. runners up? Yes, care of OpenNTF:</font>
  455. <br />
  456. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">$1000 for the winner</font>

  481. Software and renamed to OpenNTF, OpenNTF.org has become 15 years old. I
  482. think the founders of OpenNTF - Bruce Elgort and Nathan T. Freeman, and
  483. also Vince Shuurman who was involved in the early years of OpenNTF - did
  484. not imagine how important OpenNTF would become after all these years. OpenNTF,
  485. the home of the Extension Library, the home of over 850 projects, and the
  486. place where IBM ICS learned how to reintegrate open source code in to a
  487. core product. While people with a strong charisma like Bruce have made
  488. OpenNTF popular and advocates like Niklas Heidloff have demonstrated the
  489. enormous value and power of Open Source and OpenNTF, <b>there was another
  490. man involved in the success of OpenNTF like no other.</b></font>
  491. <br />
  492. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">The formal title was<b> IP Manager</b>,
  493. but <b>Peter Tanner was more</b>. He was the conscience of OpenNTF. He
  494. gave OpenNTF everything that an open source community needs. His knowledge
  495. about intellectual property rights, licences, and how to build an organisation
  496. that has clear processes on how to publish software is more valuable than
  497. gold. But now the time has come for his second retirement. We had the pleasure
  498. and also the financial power to hire the services of Peter for one last
  499. year, but this year ends now. He will pass his duty to a young brilliant
  500. mind with the name Jesse Gallagher and we wish Jesse all the best for this
  501. important position.</font>
  502. <br />
  503. <br /><font size='2' face="sans-serif">And Peter, I want to thank you personally
  504. for all the time you spent on OpenNTF, for all the work and discussions
  505. we had together, and for introducing the idea of open source to me and
  506. connecting me to the big world of open source community. Yes, we will miss
  507. you, for sure, but all good things comes to a end, and I wish you all the
  508. best in your second retirement. Enjoy travelling around the world!</font>
