Link: Securing Your Notes Application

Today we discussed to provide a checklist for developers that can help them with auditing the security of their applications.

In the Notes/Domino Best Practices: Security checklist there is a reference to:

Lotus Education On Demand: Securing Your Notes Application

Overview Introduction Controlling Access to Notes/Domino Data Tools The Access Control List Setting Up and Refining the ACL Access to Database Elements Participants Partners in Securing an Application Web Users Anonymous Users Case Studies Problems … 28 Apr 2005.

However the link is dead. Does anyone know if this tutorial is available under a different address?

Printer-friendly CSS for OneUI?

I have an application which is based heavy on the XPages Framework available on OpenNTF. When printing a document most of the images used for styling disappear. However I would like to provide an even more printer-friendly style-sheet. For example the left navigation, footer etcetera I do not found so very interesting to print.

But before I set up a custom CSS, has anyone done this before and is willing to share it?

Mastering… XPatience

On 29 January I received a confirmation that my Amazon order for Mastering XPages was shipped. What shipped means here I have no idea but from a customer perspective I would expect: “expected to be dropped in your postbox any time now” but this seems not to be true:

Order Placed:

October 6, 2010

Shipment 1 of 1


Delivery Estimate: March 7, 2011

Thanks, but no thanks… I can still see that pile of books in the bookstore at LS2011 in front of my eyes…

Lotusphere 2011 – Final day

A short summary of today’s activities:

Certification Test Lab

After breakfast I thought taking an exam and upgrade my certification. The upgrade exam for Notes 8 had quiet some DB2 related questions and I havent used DXL export at all so without preparation or work experience the exam was not successfull :-/

Brainstorm OpenNTF project

I met a few developers to discuss a possible kick-off for a new OpenNTF project. The project manager has as dead-line defined next month so you will probably hear from us =)


Questions from the audience for the experts. Great fun and great answers.

Ask the product managers

Ed Brill hosted this session. Questions from the audience for the PM’s. Great fun when the crowd did not appreciate avoiding answers from the PM. I wonder how request are being analyzed, for example the ROI of bringing Designer to the Mac and having a whole new potential of developer audience.

I hope some of the PM’s where attending the Ask the Developers session. There was a good question on monitoring IdeaJam.

Ask the developers

Questions from the audience for the developers. Quickr is dead, LotusScript is dead. Just focus  on XPages and Java folks.

Odd that so little developers take a look at IdeaJam. Maybe you could gain a few bonuses by bringing up some highly rated ideas from IdeJam (steal with pride and improve) ?

The news that I heard from this session is that there are (dedicated) template developers. Maybe they could define and publish the product plans for several templates delivered via OpenNTF (blog template, wiki, discussion…).

So that was my Lotusphere 2011. Since I was infected on the plane by a German neighbour (thanks but no thanks) with a fever I spent most of my time after the session sleeping in bed.

In case I infected anyone else I am sorry but like me you will get over with it :-/

Lotusphere 2011 – Wednesday 2 Feb.

After breakfast I went back straight to bed due to some fever. I managed to recover for some sessions after lunch :-/


Show 107 The datasource session

During this session was demonstrated how new binding can be made to other datasources except Notes documents and views. Very interesting and potential allthough you might wonder if it wouldn’t make more sense when IBM provides a couple of out of the box connections for example RDBMS.

AD306 IBM Lotus SameTime Proxy – A collaborative recipe for success

This was more a developer session for the SameTime proxy and some use cases where highlighted.

BP106 Where is the love? How to get your users fall in love with Lotus Notes.

Because the ST Proxy session next door finished early I took a glimpse at this session (we heard already lots of applause in the other room from this session).

My tip: try to get additional time for improving the user experience when developing new application. Users could be working with them the next 10 years. Also dare to invest in the lifecycle of elder applications by reviving their look  & feel.

Lotusphere 2011 Party

Due to a sickness I did not need to take any roller-coaster after having drinking one beer. What else can I see? For some decent food you do not need to be at an amusement park?
