The Domino Object Model classes for Java that deal with multi-value items use the java.util.Vector class for item values. For example, see the lotus.domino.Item.setValues(Vector) method. That was a good design back when those classes were first created for Java 1.1. But since Java 1.2 the recommended best practice ...
This is applicable to the Notes and Administrator clients too, but I only get to pick one IdeaSpace. :(
As a 'relatively' new entrant to Notes design and administration (I've only been doing it for a few years off and on), I'm incredibly frustrated by the poor learning materials ...
I wish we have a programming API to access and edit the mail database, the
personal address book and the Domino Directory
The API must support LotusScript and Java.
It is not professional to create a document with field and than find ...
Even having a rough way to do this in Midas, I would really like to see a simple @formula (and matching LotusScript) method for determining if there was anything in the rich text. Even better would be if it took an argument that specified whether whitespace was included, so you ...
I've seen a LOT of workflow processing agents in Notes. And the one thing they all have in common is that they have to waken up at a regular interval, check all pending documents, and move around document status.
What any workflow system needs is the ability to ...
Add the NotesUI classes like NotesUIDocument, NotesUIWorkspace etc. to the Java Notes-API.
I am a big friend of developing java agents or java Script-libraries with Eclipse. Following sound design principles as low coupling, high cohesion, the code which actually accesses the Java Api for Domino is well encapsulated in a few classes or methods. All the rest is junit-Testable. The ...
Groovy is getting more and more interest in the Java community.
Its kind of faster to write, especially if you implement detail-rich business logic, which is typical for Domino projects.
Groovy might even be easier to learn than full blown Java and as a language its far more feature rich ...
Most developers are used to Lotus-Script. They would not have much of a problem to write scripts in Java. The general syntax can be learned in a few hours and the main knowledge lies actually in the object-modell of the Notes-Classes, which are identical to LotusScript. However what ...
I would like to see the choice of programming Notes applications with either LotusScript or Java become more one of personal preference rather than significant differences in functional capabilities. To achieve this we need to enhance the LotusScript language to provide some of the things Java can already do (e.g. polymorphism) ...
I would very much like to see some new Classes or API's if you like, that makes it easier to create Appointments, Memo's and other Mail/Calendar entries, without having to remember all the speciel fields, that have to be set. Then we could create AppointMent and memos as objects and ...
A lot of notes developers who want to start java development on their prefered platform are scared away by the well known recycle() and error-cleaning-up-agent-threads issue. For those with a bit more experience with and confidence in java, this is not so much of an issue. At least that has ...
What about right mouse click in the Designer pane and selecting Code from Library local or server
I like the Drag & Drop for design forms and views idea too
I am suprised to see still no type ahead feature for Java agent like Lotus Script. R8.5 is Eclipse based environment , At least this should be included. Also, Ease of error debugging . E.g, If I've class defined "getRecords" and If I've used "getrecords" , It says "Unable to ...
Generation of this error is useless, it only hinders. Quite enough to return Nothing.
Similar GetDocumentByID method does not generate errors.
With notesDxlImporter we can insert code in for example database scripts. In the process the compiler tries to automatically compile this fresh code. Unfortuatedly I get no information about if the code actually did compile or did not due to errors in the inserted code in the new environment like ...
I am curious if there is any interest i the community for a Notes based tool that generates a shell webservice in either LotusScript or Java for a selected Notes Form.
Using a simplistic UI to select a Notes Database then Form and some simple options like key field(s), ...
