Configure Eclipse 4.6.x with HCL Notes 12.0.1 FP1  

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/18/22 4:07 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Once again I had to ask HCL development for setup instructions how to launch the HCL Notes Standard Client from an Eclipse IDE, this time for Notes 12.0.1 FP1. The instructions I had gotten earlier for Notes 10 have not changed much (I think there's one additional VM argument at the end of the list), but enough so that they did not work anymore.

As Jesse blogged there are some issues in the new Windows 64 Bit Notes Client 12.0.2 that break the "Import Local Update Site" functionality of the standard Update Site template of Domino. To fix this and other issues, I just uploaded a new release of the Open Eclipse Update Site on OpenNTF.

By Karsten Lehmann | 6/1/22 1:18 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Today we released version 0.9.48 of Domino JNA as OSGi plugin for XPages developers and on Maven Central.

New utility class to format view data as markdown table Added method to get agent design doc UNID Added hierarchical recycling (parent/child auto recycle)

Ralf Petter’s blog about Notes, Eclipse and Expeditor back online  

By Karsten Lehmann | 12/21/21 2:37 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Yesterday I noticed that Ralf Petter's blog "Everything about IT" is not online anymore. Ralf died years ago from cancer and his blog contains invaluable tips around Notes, Eclipse and Expeditor development. In June 2017 when I heard about his death, I downloaded all blog articles and kept them on my local disk. Now that the official blog is gone, I uploaded them to our server, added them to the Google index and made them available here

News Update from Mindoo Land: Domino JNA / JNX  

By Karsten Lehmann | 7/26/21 7:41 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In a pandemic (in particular with two young kids of 5 and 7 years), times flies by even faster than in regular times, so it's no surprise that this blog has not seen many updates for a very long time. Just wanted to let you know that we are still very busy, leveraging and improving the Domino AppDev platform.

Change OSGI_HTTP_DYNAMIC_BUNDLES in Notes.ini from LotusScript

Call this agent with Agent.RunOnServer to change the value of OSGI_HTTP_DYNAMIC_BUNDLES on a Domino server without using a server configuration document and a server reboot. OSSetEnvironmentVariableExt with isSoft=true lets the method only check an internal hard list for forbidden variables.

Configure Eclipse 4.6.x with HCL Notes 10  

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/4/19 11:24 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

For years, whenever I needed to configure an Eclipse IDE for IBM Notes plugin development, I used Mikkel Heisterberg's instructions on his blog. Since I currently have a customer requirement to update an existing plugin that we built for them years ago to a newer Java version (1.8), I tried to set up Eclipse 2019-09 with HCL Notes 10.0.1FP2, but failed.
