TiDomino is now an Idea Space on IdeaJam.net

Firstly, a big thanks to Mr Bruce Elgort for creating a category on IdeaJam.net for TiDomino.

For those who aren’t aware…TiDomino is a JavaScript module that allows Appcelerator Titanium developers to use IBM Domino programming patterns to structure local data sets and integrate with IBM Domino and XWork Applications.

IdeaJam.net is an online social site that uses the power of “crowd-sourcing” to rank ideas and allow the best ideas to rise to the top. (NOTE: IdeaJam is available as a product for companies that are interested. Speak to Mr Bruce Elgort or Click here for more info)

SO WHERE TO FROM HERE?

To date, there have been 83 downloads of TiDomino from OpenNTF. I published the very first version on the 29th November 2013 and provided a 2nd release on the 13th December. The 2nd release was motivated by a suggestion that Sean Cull raised during his testing of TiDomino.

Now, I already have my To Do list for the next release of TiDomino, which I’m targeting for February, once IBMConnect is over and the dust has settled.

However, moving forward, I really want to urge everyone who’s interested in this community product, to raise ideas and suggestions on IdeaJam. I would love nothing more than to turn this into an Uber product that makes sense for everyone in terms of usability and time saved on programming.

I, myself will be listing all the ideas I currently have for this product. I look forward to everyone’s feedback and involvement on this. I’ll see you on the other side!!

New version of TiDomino released on OpenNTF

Hi All. I’ve just released version 1.0.1 of TiDomino on OpenNTF. This release introduces a new Notes Database called “TiDomino Sample DB“.

Thanks to Mr Sean Cull’s suggestion, there is no more need to create your own Notes/XPages Application to test out TiDomino’s integration capabilities. The Sample DB contains all the design elements and test records to have the TiDomino Kitchen Sink in Appcelerator Titanium produce and display results when run.

I recommend following the Developer Guide that’s part of the OpenNTF Download for more details, but in short…place the Sample DB in your Server’s Data Directory and sign the database accordingly.

In the Kitchen Sink, you’ll need to tweak the Server, Username and Password Parameters. That’s it!

Oh…and just a small bonus…the entire TiDomino Project is now available on GitHub.

Enjoy :)

DanNotes Session Slides: Appcelerator Mobile and XPages

Here are the slides for my 1 session at DanNotes this week: Appcelerator Mobile. The Doppelgänger to XPages.

I cleaned it up a bit. Sadly there were 2 live demos, but I will publish more content around this soon enough.

I will submit my other slides early next week and will also be blogging about my Denmark trip soon enough.

Enjoy :)

Hail Bruce The Mighty

Bruce Elgort: Teacher. Leader. Podcaster. Tweeter. OpenNTF extraordinaire. And all round nice guy.

Mr Bruce. This is a short post just to say thanks for all the hard work and effort you have thrown into the IBM Community. Thank you for making OpenNTF what it is today, and what we all know it will be in the near future. You are an inspiration to all of us Online IBMers and as far as I’m concerned, you walk a Titan amongst us as well.

Hail Bruce!!!!

TUTORIAL: Integrating XPages with DB2 – Part 2

Hi everyone. So, just 2 things firstly:

1. This is an extended Post to David Leedy’s NotesIn9 Posting of “Intro to XPages and Relational Data – Part 2“.

2. I do apologize that this took a while to publish. This is one of the more challenging years to find some free time to contribute to the Domino and XPages community. Having said that, I have quite a few Video Tutorials planned before this year ends, so stay tuned :)

 

Now that that’s out the way…..this post is Part 2 to the “Integrating XPages with DB2 – Part 1“. In this Video I show you how to Create/Read/Update/Delete DB2 Data using XPages. More importantly, I show you how to empower the User to perform all these functions via a User Interface. It’s usually easy to write this logic in the back-end, but a little more involved when handing that power over to the User.

 

The good news is that it’s fairly straightforward. I show you some quick functions that will get you up and running in no time. As I explained in the Video though, there are much more advanced ways of integrating to DB2. This will involve some knowledge of DB2 itself. The keyword is…..”Stored Procedures“. This is where the power lies. A Stored Procedure is very much like a Sub Routine in LotusScript or a Function in Java or JavaScript, but you code in SQL Language. You can pass the Stored Procedure parameters, have all your logic neatly set out in a central place in DB2 and return values from the Stored Procedure which will allow you do things like create Child Documents, etc.

Later on in the near future, I will think up a straightforward Tutorial which will show you how this all works.

I hope you enjoy this Video. I really enjoyed making it. It was one of my smoothest recordings where everything went right the first time.

I want to thank David Leedy as always for adding this to his NotesIn9 Series. You da man :)

Cheers.

John
