  38. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>Over the past 4 years, I&#8217;ve had a great streak of not having any issues with my Visas to enter Europe or USA. Unfortunately, this year, thanks to silly admin issues, I was told that I would not receive my Schengen Visa in time to attend the <a href="https://engage.ug" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Engage UG</a> event next week.</p>
  39. <p>I can&#8217;t begin to explain the disappointment I&#8217;ve faced this past week. It took longer than what I thought to get over it. For those of you who don&#8217;t know, <a href="https://engage.ug" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Engage</a> is a major User Group event that operates from the Benelux (last year it was held in Netherlands). The focus of the event is all things IBM Collaboration Solutions and Analytics. This year, it will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, on the 8th and 9th of May, in the Elisabeth Center.</p>
  40. <p>Thanks to many awesome sponsors, this event is free of charge to anyone who wants to attend, keeping in mind there are limited seats. I do believe there are a few seats available and if you can find the time to attend this event, I encourage you to make the effort, as it is hands down one of the best events I&#8217;ve attended.</p>
  41. <p>This year I was privileged to be selected to speak at Engage. My session would&#8217;ve been &#8220;<strong>Optimus XPages 2017: Client-side Programming Gone Loco</strong>&#8220;. So not only do I not get to attend the event and meet up with many I call friends from around the world, but I also miss out on an amazing opportunity to present at Engage. A real disappointment!!! I just want to thank <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/theoheselmans/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Theo Heselmans</a> once again for the opportunity that was given to me. I also apologize once again for any inconveniences caused from my side. I trust this will be the best Engage yet and wish you and your team the very best for next week.</p>

The design refresh worked 99% until it suddenly popped up with the following error: &#8220;<strong>Design replace failed, cannot add role, maximum number of entries has been reached</strong>&#8220;.</p>
  61. <h2>Quick Solution</h2>
  62. <p>Thanks to this <a href="http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO43246" target="_blank">tech note</a>, the solution, whilst not preferred, is to make sure that the target NSF has the same Roles as the source NSF. In my case I was missing 4 roles. After adding them, everything worked fine again.</p>
  63. <p><strong>NOTE:</strong> I&#8217;m not sure what would happen if the source and target databases are meant to have different roles. This should not be the case most of the time though.</p>

  83. <p>On Monday <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/dleedy" target="_blank">David Leedy</a> released <a href="http://www.notesin9.com/2016/09/26/notesin9-201-thoughts-on-the-future-of-xpages-and-notesin9/" target="_blank">episode 201</a> of <a href="http://www.notesin9.com" target="_blank">NotesIn9</a> which focused on 2 primary points:</p>
  84. <ol>
  85. <li>The future of <a href="http://xpages.info" target="_blank">XPages</a></li>
  86. <li>The future of NotesIn9</li>
  87. </ol>
  88. <p>As far as the future of NotesIn9 is concerned, I couldn&#8217;t be more excited and honoured to be one of the producers of the show moving forward, and I congratulate <a href="https://de.linkedin.com/in/oliver-busse-31769347/en" target="_blank">Oliver Busse</a> for being one of the other producers. Thank you David Leedy for this opportunity. I have no doubt that great things are to come for this show.</p>
  89. <h2>A Quick Back Story</h2>
  90. <p>In this year alone, I had the opportunity to not only become proficient in technologies such as <a href="http://firebase.com" target="_blank">Firebase</a>, the MERN stack (<a href="http://www.mongodb.org" target="_blank">MongoDB</a>, <a href="http://expressjs.com" target="_blank">Express</a>, <a href="https://facebook.github.io/react/" target="_blank">React.js</a> and <a href="http://nodejs.org" target="_blank">Node.js</a>), <a href="http://www.ecma-international.org/ecma-262/6.0/" target="_blank">ES2015</a>, <a href="http://nodered.org" target="_blank">Node-RED</a>, etc., but I also had the chance to apply most of these technologies in real world projects. Those who follow me on the social channels would&#8217;ve noticed that I became somewhat quiet around May this year, just after my Webinar on <a href="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/2016/05/13/my-2-webinars-on-optimus-xpages-an-explosion-of-techniques-and-best-practices/" target="_blank">Optimus XPages: Part 2</a>. It was from May that I had to dive into serious deep learning and deliver results almost weekly using technologies I only had ideas about. I&#8217;m now thankfully at a sweet spot where I&#8217;ve delivered what was promised for the projects that are done, and where I&#8217;m now focusing on how to transfer this knowledge with the confidence of its success in the real world.<strong> Queue NotesIn9</strong>.</p>
  91. <h2>My strategy for NotesIn9</h2>
  92. <p>My way of thinking when it comes to developing applications has changed drastically. For example, I am no longer pro full-stack strategies, where you use a single platform like <a href="http://xpages.info" target="_blank">IBM XPages</a> or a framework like <a href="http://angularjs.org" target="_blank">Angular</a> to develop end to end solutions. I now prefer a much looser approach, where first and foremost, I completely separate UI from the platform it sits on and secondly, I work via integration middleware and APIs to bring everything together into 1 solution. This is great news because I no longer care if I have to develop an application for Microsoft, XPages, Node.js, etc. I now have the freedom do develop a User Experience that I deem is fit, without worrying about any limitations the platform it runs on may have.</p>
  93. <p>Yes there&#8217;s the server-side component to consider, but to me that&#8217;s never really been the issue when it comes to developing awesome applications. Server-side architectures are solid for the most part, even if they are sometimes outdated. For me, what makes all the difference in the world is:</p>
  94. <ol>
  95. <li>Am I limited to what User Experience I can offer my client in terms of presentation and performance</li>
  96. <li>Am I limited to what tools I am forced to use to develop the solution</li>
  97. </ol>
  98. <p>So here&#8217;s the good news. The knowledge I plan on sharing with everyone will speed rocket you into new technologies that are being used everywhere by many thousands of developers. You will be able to use most of this technology not only in your XPages applications, but on other runtimes as well. I&#8217;m going to show you the beauty of developing for the cloud, designing micro service strategies, integrating with anything and everything, lightening fast user experiences, etc, etc.</p>
  99. <h2>Closing</h2>
  100. <p>All of this will proudly happen through <a href="http://www.notesin9.com" target="_blank">NotesIn9</a>. The best part is, I haven&#8217;t even touched on what David, Oliver and many other contributors are going to bring to the table.</p>
  101. <p>So get ready to get your learning on. Keep an open mind and whatever you do, don&#8217;t shy away from the new tech. It&#8217;s really not that difficult to grasp and will empower you 100 fold in return.</p>
  102. <address>Cheers for now<br />
  103. John</address>

  119. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>In your XPages app, you can use an EditBox control and set it&#8217;s display type to be a Date/Time control with certain formats. 2 examples are Date only or Time only. This all works great, except when you want to save these values to a Notes Document either via SSJS or Java. The saved values are definitely stored correctly in a Date/Time field, but always contain both a date and time value.</p>
  120. <h2>Example</h2>
  121. <p>Below is a snippet of an EditBox control set up as a Date Only component in an XPage or Custom control, bound to a Java bean of object type &#8220;Date&#8221;:</p>
  122. <p><a href="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/STACH/uploads/sites/2/2016/08/Screen-Shot-2016-08-18-at-2.25.14-PM.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2041" src="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2016/08/Screen-Shot-2016-08-18-at-2.25.14-PM.png" alt="XPage Snippet for Date Only" width="500" height="142" srcset="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/STACH/uploads/2016/08/Screen-Shot-2016-08-18-at-2.25.14-PM.png 1002w, https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/STACH/uploads/2016/08/Screen-Shot-2016-08-18-at-2.25.14-PM-300x85.png 300w" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px" /></a></p>
  123. <p>Your Java logic to save this value to a NotesDocument will look something like this:</p><pre class="crayon-plain-tag">DateTime tempDate = null;
  124. tempDate = session.createDateTime(bean.dateOnly);
  125. doc.replaceItemValue(&quot;DateOnly&quot;, tempDate);</pre><p>Sadly, in the NotesDocument Field Properties tab, the saved value contains both a date and time:</p>
  126. <p><a href="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2016/08/XPages-Date-Time-Value1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2045" src="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2016/08/XPages-Date-Time-Value1.jpg" alt="XPages Date Time Value" width="400" height="272" srcset="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/STACH/uploads/2016/08/XPages-Date-Time-Value1.jpg 606w, https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/STACH/uploads/2016/08/XPages-Date-Time-Value1-300x204.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 400px) 100vw, 400px" /></a></p>
  127. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  128. <h2>Solution</h2>
  129. <p>Thankfully, the solution is very simple. When you create your DateTime object in either Java or JavaScript, before adding it to the doc.replaceItemValue, do the following:</p>
  130. <p>To remove the time from the Date/Time value:</p><pre class="crayon-plain-tag">tempDate = session.createDateTime(bean.dateOnly);
  131. tempDate.setAnyTime();//This removes the time value
  132. doc.replaceItemValue(&quot;DateOnly&quot;, tempDate);</pre><p>To remove the date from the Date/Time value:</p><pre class="crayon-plain-tag">tempDate = session.createDateTime(bean.timeOnly);
  133. tempDate.setAnyDate();//This removes the date value
  134. doc.replaceItemValue(&quot;TimeOnly&quot;, tempDate);</pre><p>The above java example is very similar to what you would do in SSJS as well.<br />
  135. As simple as that <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p>

  151. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>I&#8217;m happy to announce that both my webinar presentations titled &#8220;Optimus <a href="http://xpages.info" target="_blank">XPages</a>&#8221; are available for viewing.</p>
  152. <h2>Overview</h2>
  153. <p>The first part focuses on techniques and best practices on a high level, where most of the video is presentation slides with a few short demos at the end.</p>
  154. <p>The second video is a lot more fast-past. Nearly the entire video is live code. I pretty much design an <a href="http://xpages.info" target="_blank">XPages</a> Single Page App from start with explanations of what&#8217;s happening along the way.</p>
  155. <p>You can delve straight into Part 2, but I do recommend watching Part 1 if you have another 1.5 hours to spare, as it really gives some great insight to how apps should be developed.</p>

Well, next week you&#8217;ll have the answer.</p>
  207. <p>I will take the core messages from my initial webinar and present them in a live session, showing off the code and practices I used to develop XPages applications. This will be a pretty intense session, as I show off everything live and explain on the fly.</p>

  279. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>Yup, thanks to an article published today by yours truly ?, the &#8220;<a href="https://wiki.openntf.org/display/XOB/XPages+on+Bluemix" target="_blank">XPages on Bluemix</a>&#8221; Space is officially active on the <a href="http://wiki.openntf.org" target="_blank">XPages Knowledge Base</a>.</p>
  280. <p>This is in no way near where <a href="http://openntf.org" target="_blank">OpenNTF</a> want the XPages Knowledge Base to be, but it&#8217;s definitely a step in the right direction. For those who don&#8217;t know what the Knowledge Base is, <a href="https://johnjardin.ukuvuma.co.za/2016/02/09/its-time-for-the-xpages-knowledge-base-to-officially-co-exist/" target="_blank">click here</a> for more info.</p>
  281. <h2>The first XPages on Bluemix Article</h2>
  282. <p>The first article is titled <a href="https://wiki.openntf.org/display/XOB/Quick+Facts+about+running+XPages+on+Bluemix" target="_blank">Quick Facts about running XPages on Bluemix</a>. The idea behind the article is simple: To provide the community with a quick-to-reference list of the pros and cons of running an <a href="http://xpages.info" target="_blank">XPages</a> application on the <a href="http://bluemix.net" target="_blank">Bluemix</a> cloud. I&#8217;ve populated a number of positives and negatives and will most likely be updating this article frequently.</p>
  283. <p>This marks the first of many articles to make their way to &#8220;XPages on Bluemix&#8221; Space. I will be counting on a few contributors to help me make this a reality, but have no fear, much is already in store ?.</p>
  284. <h2>Call To Arms</h2>
  285. <p>As always, I implore everyone to please contribute in any way possible. For those who don&#8217;t have the time to publish articles, you can easily add value by commenting and providing feedback. The article <a href="https://wiki.openntf.org/display/XOB/Quick+Facts+about+running+XPages+on+Bluemix" target="_blank">Quick Facts about running XPages on Bluemix</a> is a great place to start. Either comment on this blog post or if you have an OpenNTF account, you can log into the XPages Knowledge Base and provide feedback directly against the article.</p>
  286. <p>What I&#8217;m looking for here is everyone&#8217;s questions, suggestions and concerns relating to XPages on Bluemix. I&#8217;m planning additional articles that will structure this content to be easily referenced by all. The more transparency we have as a community the better.</p>
  287. <p>Thanks in advance everyone. See you on the other side <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p>

I&#8217;m asking all experts that either have created content or are willing to create tutorials, to please join me in populating the <a href="https://wiki.openntf.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=5275718" target="_blank">OSGI Plugins Space</a>. The sooner we can get more individuals (including myself) working with OSGI plugins, the better it will be for everyone.</p>
  308. <p>If you have content and are not sure how to add it to the <a href="https://wiki.openntf.org" target="_blank">Knowledge Base</a>, please <a href="mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank">contact me</a> and I will assist in any way possible.</p>
  309. <address>Many thanks in advance<br />

  327. <p>I find myself yet again preparing for long flights to vast never before seen countries. This time it&#8217;s the Netherlands, where I&#8217;ll be presenting my session titled &#8220;<strong>The XPages of Things</strong>&#8220;, at an awesome user group called <a href="http://engage.ug" target="_blank">Engage</a>, on <strong>Thursday</strong> the 24th March 2016 at <strong>2:45pm</strong> (Netherlands Time &#8211; UTC/GMT+1).</p>
  328. <p>I am extremely excited for this session, as it really shows off what is possible using a Cloud platform like <a href="http://bluemix.net/" target="_blank">Bluemix</a> and integrating it with an on-premise platform like IBM Notes and Domino. The feedback I received re my session from <a href="http://www-01.ibm.com/software/collaboration/events/connect/" target="_blank">IBM Connect</a> this January past was also super positive, and for those who are still considering if they should attend my session, here&#8217;s a pitch&#8230;pretty much everything is a live demo ?.</p>
  329. <p>If you haven&#8217;t registered for <a href="http://engage.ug">Engage</a> as yet and are considering&#8230;well consider faster, as there are only a few seats left and remember that registration is free thanks to the <a href="http://engage.ug/engage.nsf/Pages/about" target="_blank">Engage team</a> and the <a href="http://engage.ug/engage.nsf/Pages/Sponsors2016" target="_blank">sponsors</a>.</p>
  330. <p>The event takes place on the 23rd and 24th March 2016 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. <strong>And check out where the event will take place!!!</strong></p>
