Artikel zu XPages in Java Aktuell erschienen

leave a comment »

In der aktuellen Ausgabe der Zeitschrift > Java Aktuell – Das iJUG Magazin ist ein Artikel über XPages mit dem Titel “XPages – Ein neues Framework zur Entwicklung von Webanwendungen” von mir erschienen. Der Artikel ist als Einstiegsartikel zum Thema XPages für Java Entwickler gedacht. Ein kurzer Auszug:

Mit XPages lassen sich leistungsfähige Webanwendungen entwickeln. Eine XPage basiert auf XSP, einem XML-Dialekt, welches bei der Ausführung in Java-Code umgewandelt wird. XPages sind auf einem IBM Lotus Domino Server lauffähig und können von jedem Webbrowser und dem auf Eclipse RCP-basierten IBM Lotus Notes Client ausgeführt werden. Die Entwicklung von XPages erfolgt mit dem IBM Lotus Domino Designer, einem kostenlos erhältlichen, auf Eclipse IDE-basierten Entwicklungswerkzeug. Objekte lassen sich hiermit per Drag & Drop auf eine XPage platzieren und mit Java oder JavaScript erweitern.

Der vollständige Artikel ist über diesen Link verfügbar: XPages – Ein neues Framework zur Entwicklung von Webanwendungen (> iJUG)

leave a comment »

Wie auf der > Powersphere im September angekündigt, ist mittlerweile die Version 10 von > PAVONE Espresso Workflow freigegeben. Hauptneuerung ist die Realisierung mit XPages. Dadurch können einmal entwickelte Workflow-Anwendungen im Webbrowser und IBM Lotus Notes-Client ausgeführt werden.

Der im Screenshot zu sehende Workflow Materialbeschaffung wird standardmäßig ausgeliefert. Weitere Workflows können mit dem grafischen Modellierungstool PAVONE ProcessModeler erstellt werden.

Die Umsetzung erfolgte basierend auf dem > OneUI, um möglichst wenig Abhängigkeiten zu einem speziellen User Interface zu schaffen.

Die Version ist in deutscher und englischer Sprache verfügbar, umschaltbar in einer IBM Lotus Notes Anwendung.

Weitere Informationen gibt es hier:  > PAVONE Espresso Workflow mit XPages. Der Download ist übrigens kostenlos, bedarf nur einer Registrierung.
