!NO! more struggle with XPages as RSS source and JWPlayer

I am working on embedding JWPlayer in a Domino app and I want to use an XPages to generate an RSS feed for a playlist. Via this way I can apply some ‘intelligence’ and direct which related items the playlist should contain. How the code should look like you can see here.

The problem I am facing at the moment is that JWPlayer has problems using a source that is based other that the xml extension.

Task Queue failed at step 5: Playlist could not be loaded: XML could not be parsed or playlist was empty

Whenever I save the .xsp results as an .xml file and add it to the application as a file resource and call it the player works fine.

In traditional Domino development it is possible to call an agent e.g. rss.xml but XPages does not allow it, it can only contain numbers, letters, underscore and hyphen.

  • Do you see any options using XPages or am i thrown back to writing an agent?

Update: problem solved as you can see in the image below.

Q: How to use an XPage as XML source (RSS)

I noticed that you can specify an RSS playlist for a movie in the JW Player. The playlist should be similar according like this example file.

In my Bildr application I am still relying on a the combination of a view/$$viewtemplate form/webqueryopen agent combination which seems like a deprecated approach in XPages Domino development.

Since I haven’t used an XPage before as an RSS feed I am wondering what would be the easiest approach/implementation?

  • my XPage should be able to take a document UNID as identifier
  • my XPage should perform a search and return a collection with an X number of documents from the same author (channel)

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I will also update the RSS feed in Bildr with the solution…

Below an impression how far I have come:

(probably the app will be uploaded on OpenNTF in case I manage to qualify for the IP scan =))
