Vor ein paar Tagen ist im > GBS Blog ein neuer Beitag von meinem Kollegen Irfan Duheric zum Thema Continuous Integration erschienen: > Continuous Integration: Eine Methode setzt sich durch.
Interessanter Artikel meines Kollegen Jens Winkelmann im GBS Blog: > XPages – Die Technologie für moderne Web-Anwendungen.
I had a discussion about the licensing of an XPages application on a Domino server and we found no answer. I have a single XPages application (without messaging) and put this onto a Domino server (by an hoster). For example, a blog with sections only for specific users. The XPages application is open for the public in the Internet. So each one can create an account and manage his data in the application. This is a typical internet application. But what license is necessary for such an application? It is necessary to buy a user license for each (unknown) user? Or do I need only a user license to design the application?
Two hours ago I was very frustrated. Some time ago I created a new agent in a Lotus Notes database. I wrote the code and during a Sametime chat, my Domino Designer crashed. I restarted the Designer, but all of my code in the agent was lost. I started to re-implemented the code. I do not know why, but after several lines of code, I have closed the Designer and re-opened it. Then, I wrote some more lines of code. Some times later, my Designer crashed again. I restarted the Designer and all the new code since the last restart of the Designer was lost… 😦 I have saved the code several times before the Designer crashed, since I run the agent several times to test it. I had never before this situation. Normally, I implement the code in a library and do not use an agent interface. But I’m wondering why the saved code was lost after the crash. It is possible that the Domino Designer uses an internal cache?
Last week I have got a new laptop and switched from the > Eclipse Ganymede release to the current > Eclipse Helios release. Further, I have re-installed all workspaces. After that, each file search included the > Subversion .svn directories. On > Stack Overflow I found a solution for that problem: In Eclipse you can select “Project -> Properties” and then “Resource -> Resource Filters” and add a new filter with the option “Exclude all”, type “Folder” with name “.svn”. Then the file search will not include the .svn directories.
If you want to migrate to > Mozilla Firefox 3.6.14, please consider that Java applets are not working in this version.
Mozilla are aware of the issue involving Java applets not working in Firefox 3.6.14 and are working on a fix, no timescale but they are planning on a quick release. They are currently creating Firefox 3.6.15 which should fix this and will then be testing it to ensure the fix is working. (Source: > http://bit.ly/hi2UoT)

As you can read in the > press release leading members of the OpenOffice.org community has launched The Document Foundation. This foundation will coordinate the development of > LibreOffice. From the press release:
The Foundation will be the cornerstone of a new ecosystem where individuals and organisations can contribute to and benefit from the availability of a truly free office suite. It will generate increased competition and choice for the benefit of customers and drive innovation in the office suite market. From now on, the OpenOffice.org community will be known as “The Document Foundation”.
Oracle, who acquired OpenOffice.org assets as a result of its acquisition of Sun Microsystems, has been invited to become a member of the new Foundation, and donate the brand the community has grown during the past ten years. Pending this decision, the brand “LibreOffice” has been chosen for the software going forward.
Some supporters are Google, Novell, Red Hat, but not Oracle and IBM.
