BLUG has been really good event this year. Again!
Theo is a great host, doesn't matter if you're speaker or attendee, he treats you well. Extremely well. All that chocolate in a speakers room! I was full of energy and good mood until late night hours even after the whole busy day at a conference. Splendid!
At the end of each year nearly all Lotus related blogs have titles like "I will be speaking at Lotusphere...". At the end of each year I wondered why people write those blog posts. Now I think I know it. So, once more, just for my pleasure: I will be speaking at BLUG 2012 :-)
Until we are stuck with Eclipse 3.4 under Domino Designer, using some Eclipse plugins is limited to older versions of them. But we have Nathan T. Freeman on our side (of the Force), so at least for Git plugin (EGit/JGit project) this is not true. Go grab new release of updated Git support to OpenNTF.org. Now!
There was a problem with submitting comments to this site. And by problem I mean one could not submit them at all. There is apparently a bug in Antispam module for Drupal, when it is configured for use with Akismet antispam service.
If by any chance you're running Drupal and you want to use Antispam module, use this patch to make it work again.
I am taking a scientific approach, so part 1 is procrastination :-)
EDIT: In fact I am now close to the end of part two: holiday in Thailand. But immediately after return (and by immediately I mean after usual cold I am going to catch because of 40 degrees of Celsius temperature difference and - at least - a stroke because of returning to work) I am going to try it. At least this is my New Year's resolution. And I - as you - take these resolutions very seriously.
Happy New Year 2012! Or 2555, if you're in Thailand. Or Year of the Dragon, if you're Chinese.
In one of my previous posts I mentioned Play! framework. I'm now working with it almost exclusively, all of my non Notes work is in Java and when I am not dealing with SOAP web services or Android, I use Play framework. But it is not what I want to tell you about this time. It is MongoDB. It could be easily used in Play application using play-morphia plugin that uses Morphia project to map MongoDB to JPA. But again this is not what I want to talk about - although it is also very interesting :-)
After installing 8.5.3 and a new release of Extension Library I started to play with the Mobile controls included in it. It was originally a separate project on OpenNTF but now the controls are part of library itself. So you need 8.5.3 server (with extlib installed on it) to run apps using these controls. Thanks to new updateSite.ntf included with 8.5.3 it is now far more easier to deploy ExtLib to your server.
After upgrading Notes Client on Linux to 8.5.3 (it is in fact related to update of embedded sametime to 8.5.1) I started to get an error message "Unable to initialize Computer, and it can't be used at this time. Processed unsuccessful response: null for: REGISTER..." and then there were some details about the connection. Quick Goggle search helped: How to suppress SIP registration failures in the Sametime 8.5x client
Just a quick addendum to previous post. MessageContext is available in 8.5.3 gold version too, although I did not find any documentation on it in Help, in Release Notes and in fix list database.
So this is probably "let's uncomment this and don't tell anyone" kind of fix :-)
But thanks a lot for it!
