@IsRichTextEmpty and LotusScript/Java equivalents

: Domino Designer
: richtext, @formula, lotusscript, java
Ben Langhinrichs7382 - 05 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Programming API for the Mail Database, Personal Address Book and Domino Directory

: Domino Designer
: api, lotusscript, java, mail, database, domino, directory, personal, addressbook
Jens Winkelmann485 - 08 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Open up all the document properties to Java/LS

: Domino Designer
: lotuscript, java, properties
Andy Harris727 - 06 2008 / (0)
The Document/NotesDocument classes currently allow read access to things like creation date, last modified, etc.
However, there are a lot more properties to documents than that (when created in the current file to name one).
These should be made available as properties like the others.

Book Proposal: Domino goes mobile: HTML5, CSS3 and Ajax

: Domino Designer
: mobile, ajax, browser, iphone, java
Jason Hook2740 - 15 2010 / (0)
Not your usual here's how to mobilize your companies business process applications.  Instead a look at using Domino to host a twitter integrated, location aware application fit to run on Android, iPad and iPhone.
We'll cover:
    1) What's ...

Agent Manager - schedule ahead...

: Domino Designer
: agent, manager, agents, lotusscript, java
Bill Buchan735 - 04 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Debugger for Java

: Domino Designer
: java, debugger
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 02 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Make design resource document data available programatically (with LS or Java)

: Domino Designer
: files, resources, lotusscript, java
Jake Ochs359 - 09 2009 / (0)
Make file (and other) resources' data available programatically. I can currently grab a resource design doc using a NotesNoteCollection and find what I'm looking for by searching for the $Title that I need, but if the resource is -say- a file I can't get the file data in any simple manner using LS ...

Remove the need of recycle()

: Domino Designer
: java
Per Holmberg442 - 10 2010 / (0)
There should be no need calling recycle() on Domino Java objects. Java has a garbage collector and for almost every other Java API there is no need for doing this kind of memory clean-up.
The knowledge and documentation of how the use the recycle() (and if you need to ...

Detect when UI-document are in Dialog mode

: Domino Designer
: dialog, notesuidocument, isdialog, lotusscript, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 02 2009 / (0)
To unify the use of code and design elements (Subform) is sometimes useful to know we are in dialogue or not. Example: Subform used as embedded (checking for filling in the fields needed on QuerySave) and as a dialogue (on QueryClose). I propose to add a property IsDialog as Boolean ...

Remove Err=4091 from GetDocumentByUNID method

: Domino Designer
: notesdatabase, getdocumentbyunid, err, error, 4091, lotusscript, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 25 2009 / (0)
Generation of this error is useless, it only hinders. Quite enough to return Nothing.
Similar GetDocumentByID method does not generate errors.

Make task functionality with // TODO comments in Java available for LotusScript etc

: Domino Designer
: dde, java, lotusscript, tasks, comments
Phil Warner216 - 21 2010 / (0)
In Designer 8.5.1 I've added the Tasks window to the Domino perspective (Window>Show Eclipse Views>Other>General>Tasks), which will list the stuff I've still got left to do when writing Java, if I add "// TODO...etc" comment lines in my code, which is great. It would be lovely to have this feature ...

New classes for Appointments and other mail/calendar entries

: Domino Designer
: javascript, lotusscript, java, api, simplifi´cation
Michael Falstrup788 - 05 2011 / (0)
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 ...

Add NotesUI classes to Java

: Domino Designer
: java
Thomas Bahn4937 - 03 2007 / (0)
Add the NotesUI classes like NotesUIDocument, NotesUIWorkspace etc. to the Java Notes-API.
This would allow programming Notes client applications completely with Java (and @formulas/JavaScript) and thus replacing LoutsScript. I see this as an alternative to enhance LotusScript to become a "real" OO language.

Special Builder for Notes Java compilation, once Designer on Eclipse

: Domino Designer
: eclipse, java
Axel Janssen6869 - 17 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Some member in NotesDXLImporter to inform about compile issues

: Domino Designer
: lotuscript, dxl, java
Axel Janssen6869 - 08 2008 / (1)
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 ...

Modernize web service support to JAX-WS

: Domino Designer
: java, web services
Per Holmberg442 - 01 2010 / (0)
I think the web service support in Lotus should be modernized and support the JAX-WS (JSR 224), which is the standard web service API in Java from Java version 6.

As far as I know, the built-in web service support in Domino 8.x is based on the ...

Working with pictures without DXL

: Domino Designer
: notesrichtextnavigator, picture, ls, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 12 2010 / (0)
Propose to add type RTELEM_TYPE_PICTURE into NotesRichTextNavigator.FindFirstElement, etc.

Share Java codes for agents, XPages etc. in a Notes application

: Domino Designer
: java, agent, web services, xpages
Starrow Pan5103 - 12 2014 / (0)
Thanks to XPages, Java development takes a bigger role in Notes dev. However, while an agent, web service and XPage app can all be written in Java, the compilation paths for them are different. An Java agent can use a Java script library but not a Java code or package ...

Change Java item method parameters to use List instead of Vector

: Domino Designer
: java, dom
Nick Radov1404 - 26 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Refinement NotesLog class

: Domino Designer
: noteslog, class, lotusscript, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 27 2009 / (0)
Good idea, but there are some disadvantages in its use. I propose:  
  • add property ParentDatabase As NotesDatabase (read/write), in which will create a log entry (it will make it possible to redefine the database into which you are recording);
  • OpenNotesLog method make returns the result As Boolean;
  • LogError, ...

Remove Err=4411 from NotesUIDocument.Save method

: Domino Designer
: notesuidocument, save, err, error, 4411, lotusscript, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 26 2009 / (0)
Generation of this error is useless, it also hinders. All error handling should be done in the proper place - on QuerySave.
I propose that the Save method returns the result as Boolean, it's would be very convenient and usefull.

Ability to Refresh/Replace a database design via code cross platform

: Domino Designer
: refresh, replace, design, java, lotus script
Vlad Sh10679 - 22 2013 / (0)
Notes C API does not fit - do not cross platform.
Server task is not suitable for all, such as transfer design to the local databases.
NB. It would be desirable to have an option (bool paramether) that ignores and deactivates "Prohibit design refresh or replace modify" and "Prapagate ...

Improvement in Item.getText()

: Domino Designer
: java, item, gettext
Vlad Sh10679 - 12 2012 / (0)
Currently, the method returns all the elements, separated by a semicolon. This can be inconvenient, because the field values may also contain a semicolon.
I propose to add an optional parameter to specify the separator: Item.getText([String sep])

Get and set the data in the item as a simple array

: Domino Designer
: java, getitemvaluearray, setitemvaluearray
Vlad Sh10679 - 12 2012 / (0)
Often, for other task, it is necessary to get or set data in the item as an array, for example String[]. Now you can get the data only as Vector, which is not always convenient, since you have to manually distil data into an array.
Please add the methods for ...

Domino DOM educational wiki

: Domino Designer
: domino, designer, tutorials, education, lotusscript, java, javascript
Samuel Allen484 - 29 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Type ahead feature in Java Agent

: Domino Designer
: java
Rishi Sahi1556 - 04 2009 / (0)
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 ...

: Domino Designer
: documentcollection, search, java, lotusscript, api
Vlad Sh10679 - 10 2012 / (0)
Work on the interface (XPages) - very good, but would like to not forget about the improvement of  Domino  API.
I beg to add the ability to search in collection of documents using @formulas, by analogy to The FtSearch method is inconvenient for programming and not as flexible.

Ability to determine whether there is a profile

: Domino Designer
: profile, ls, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 15 2012 / (0)
The presence of a profile without a key can be verified with getProfileDocCollection.
If the profile with the key, then using getProfileDocument has old and serious problem - profile is stored on disk, that by logic of the application can be very undesirable.
This can be implemented with ...

Lightweight "Spacebased programming"

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, formula, java
Alois Gruber1713 - 28 2008 / (0)
Spacebased programming is a concept for loosly coupled systems and has a small set of functions. Within Java there are implementations of JavaSpaces. IBM has TSpaces for that. Commercial products in the field offer far more functionality than I think for. For Notes, I would use it ...

Ability Java Library in Source Java Build Path

: Domino Designer
: java, script library
Wesley Guisso44 - 31 2009 / (0)
When writer Java in Script Library and need referenced into JavaScript (Server Side) this solution is to create a Folder, like WebContent/WEB-INF/source, put the Java files inside that one and point the Java compiler source path to this directory.
Could add automatically Java Library into "Source Java Build Path"?

Handle Java design element copies consistently

: Domino Designer
: script library, java
Mike Woolsey4870 - 06 2014 / (0)
If I write an agent to copy a Java script library into / over an existing one, Domino Designer goes a bit crazy. It complains that anything calling the script library doesn't find it, even after a "Build All".
This kind of copy-design-element is essential when using multiple templates ...

Create a mock framework for Domino Java API

: Domino Designer
: java
Axel Janssen6869 - 05 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Design code

: Domino Designer
: ls, formula, java
Palmi Lord178 - 06 2008 / (0)
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

Remove Err=4469 from NotesDocumentCollection.AddDocument method

: Domino Designer
: notesdocumentcollection, adddocument, err, error, 4469, lotusscript, java
Vlad Sh10679 - 27 2009 / (0)
I propose that it's method returns the result as Boolean, is quite enough. It is better add to Desinner Help describe the situations where the method may return False, and this:
  • getting NotesDocument object from another instance of the NotesDabatase object;
  • addition duplicate of document.
Generating the error ...

Add more "don't repeat yourself" (DRY) features to building managed beans & controls

: Domino Designer
: java, jsf, development
Mike Woolsey4870 - 10 2012 / (0)
Domino Designer's XPage interface has a masterful way of managing items so I'm not chasing around for the random file in the random directory. I'm heavily indebted to the designers of Designer for this.
The bean & controls file arrangement needs that  kind of treatment. I wish all the java, ...

Generate Shell Web Service based on a Notes form

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, java, webservice
Steven Rieger36 - 07 2008 / (0)
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), ...

Provide Parity Between LotusScript and Java

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, java
Peter Presnell28487 - 25 2008 / (0)
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) ...

Parity between Java/JavaScript and LotusScript

: Domino Designer
: development, lotusscript, java, javascript
Samuel Allen484 - 30 2007 / (0)
It would be really nice if when IBM tells new developers that they can start developing for Lotus Notes using the language that their most familiar with, the actual act of developing for the platform didn't require them to learn ALL the languages because LotusScript, Java, JavaScript, and @Formula work ...

add Groovy support natively to Notes Java Programming

: Domino Designer
: java, scripting
Axel Janssen6869 - 13 2008 / (0)
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 ...
