I am still complaining about DDE because I am facing the following situation:
I am working with a colleague on a project. Our code resides in a central repository on TFS. We both develop with a local clone and we sync towards our own NSF on a Domino server where we do our development work. The problem is that she is unable to build the project and have her NSF running. I do not have those problems but perhaps that is because I have written most code lately. When I build HER NSF, the application WILL run.
We have a similar setup (version DDE, installed plugins).
When she performs a clean, build, refresh she does not get errors or anything whatsoever. What might cause that her build process does not succeed or complete?
Just a simple description I wrote for back log.
Installation Liberty Profile
I am trying to run a lab to install a custom app in connections cloud. Only I have a problem with Eclipse and installing a local Liberty server. For another project I performed the Liberty installation earlier. Piece of cake! But for this project I started with a clean sheet: re-installed Eclipse and when I choose to install Liberty server from a repository Eclipse (Lunar 4.4.1) simply collapses.
As a check I installed Eclipse and a Liberty server on a clean OS and I do not have the same problems there. Do you recognize this?
After this screen it goes wrong. I choose no additional add-ons and select Next
*crying* I never get to this next step.
As I said, it worked before and it was easy as pie 😕
In presentation AD103 ‘Embracing the EclipseTM Within’ Maureen Leland says (slide 14):
- Code templates can be a tremendous time saver, and help implement common team conventions
- Well received for LotusScript, but also available for:
If you take stylesheets for example, you can import them from the Database Navigator. But maybe you work on new projects where the stylesheets differ but you want to re-use a genuine setup of the file, setting up templates in Designer might help you.
I am not gonna write how you write a well structured css file and the benefits of it, but just explain how to setup a scratch for new css writing in Domino Designer.
First, open in Designer the Preferences and search after CSS. Select the ‘Templates’ links. Here you will see an overview of all your available CSS templates. Press ‘New…’.
Give your file a name, description and fill the pattern. Here for example I describe the basic layout for an HTML5 app. For the Context I select ‘New CSS’. Press OK to close the Preferences dialog.
Okey, so how you can get this in your next stylesheet?
If you haven’t already got it to your Designer setup, open the Package Explorer (Windows, Perspective, Open…). Go to the Resources folder, select Stylesheets and from there:
In the wizard enter CSS or navigate to the Web folder and select CSS.
Give your new css file a name.
In the next dialog you are asked if you want to use a template. Select here the template you want and press Finish. The CSS Editor will open from where you can continue to write your CSS file.
Last year we had Johan Nordlinder as a student working on an essay about managing plugin development. The complete report (PDF) you can read here.
