Updated Single Page Application Wizard walk-through

I have updated the walk through of the Single Page Application Wizard available in the Extension Library. You can find the document here. The document covers release 901v00_06.20140424-0600 which contains some improvements for the control e.g.:

  • Improved warnings were created to alert the user to missing or badly configured options.
  • Better defaults were created for certain Wizard options.
  • The Document Viewer label position was changed to “above.”

The default CRUD options are a big time saver, also the checkboxes for fields to display on a Document Viewer Page.

Comparison between Extension Library (OpenNTF) and Upgrade Pack 1 (IBM) – You’re help is appreciated

Some days ago I posted a question on the XPages development forum: Comparison of functionality between Extension Library (OpenNTF) and Upgrade Pack 1 (IBM).

I work in a hosted environment and having a change applied (continue to work with extension libraries from OpenNTF via Update site instead of Upgrade Packs) is a complicated issue. Therefor I have wrote down some use cases where new functionality in the Extension Library which are not available in the Upgrade Pack can bring value to the organisation.

To save time I only did the comparison on paper, which means I have only looked in the “readme” files distributed which each new release and compared them the “What’s new in Domino Designer 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 1” online document. I admit this is probably not the best research but it helps you to get started.

Below you will find the comparison. Please respond in case I have missed something or understood incorrect. The use cases are too sensitive so I will leave them out of this document. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
