This blog is down since 2008

Fri, 10 Aug 2012 06:32:00 +0000

Please go to my new place since 2008 - Wohill



Still here...

Thu, 04 Sep 2008 12:28:00 +0000

It has been rather quiet here for a while now. I haven't put this blog to sleep for ever but I let it rest for a while. All my attention has been going to the new project Wohill other sub projects 

Wohill is another blog that I share with another author. I'll definately take care of this baby now and then anyway.

I have been saying for quite some time now that I am going to put a Java Web Service Consumer notes database here and I also intend to do so. I am only going to modify a few minor things. So for those of you interested in that(and patient enough) it will be here (and on Wohill I guess) with code for both a Lotusscript and a Java Web service consumer.

Take care!



MessageBox and InputBox easily in a Notes Java agent

Thu, 03 Apr 2008 08:48:00 +0000

When you start to code Java as a notes developer you will very quickly start missing the msgbox and dialog boxes for simple interaction with the users. I did and started to develop my own MessageBox class which certainly could be better. Well, if you go through the Java API and look at the swing classes there are message boxes ready to use - Just what I was looking for.

Use this row to display information to the user:
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Test");

Use this row to get information from the user:
String s = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Get me some input dude!");

Example:
Add this code into a new Notes Java agent and run it from the Notes client:
import lotus.domino.*;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

public class JavaAgent extends AgentBase {

public void NotesMain() {

try {
Session session = getSession();
AgentContext agentContext = session.getAgentContext();

/* Display message to user - like Notes MsgBox or MessageBox */
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Test");

/* Display message to user and get user input - like Notes InputBox */
String s = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Get me some input dude!");

/* Display the input */
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, s);

} catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

PHP's next major release

Sat, 15 Mar 2008 07:31:00 +0000

I have been working some with PHP but mostly as a script language for building blogs, admin interfaces or standard websites with lookups to mysql db's and similar, not too advanced that is. But the reason I keep doing it is that it has so much capability and there is so much information and examples all over the Internet.

PHP has come a long way and already is an object-oriented language. With the new upcoming release (5.3) more interesting things will come (originally intended for release 6) that makes it more competitive and assuring that it will continue being one of the best. Some of the new things you can expect are native MySQL support, variable static calls (like in Java), enhanced error reporting and namespaces (really cool). Read this article for all this information.

An if you want to get started your self, use the following two sites which is close to anything you need, except Google of course ;-)

- W3Schools tutorial
- php.net

JavaScript references

Fri, 14 Mar 2008 06:34:00 +0000

In my series of reference pages (see blog's sidebar) there is clearly one about JavaScript and its surroundings missing. So here it goes.

Get your own animated favicon

Wed, 30 Jan 2008 13:22:00 +0000

A favicon for your site makes a better overall impression. My blog's favicon is the icon with the white B on an orange background in the address bar, which stands for Blogger (the platform).

It's actually possible to use animated favicons as well.
Either you can make the icon roll from up to down or you can have a marquee horizontel scroll text. It took some time before it started work in IE though and I have had some troubles with version 6 as well, but it should work for version 7 anyway and of course for mozilla.

Great feature!
This site will show you how to do it and provide you with animated icons as well.

(image) www.wohill.com is an example site that uses an animated favicon. Reload the page if you don't see it first, it runs again on each refresh.

I will be on vacation for the next three weeks by the way, so no more posts til then. See you soon!

Folder and embedded view problems

Fri, 18 Jan 2008 09:00:00 +0000

Notes is not being nice to me right now!The last couple of days I have been struggling with notes problems that are really frustrating and to me seems like they are limitations hard to get around. If it's possible to get around them it's a lot of work and causes something else in the requirement specification to fail. I have another problem not described below which makes this feeling worse. I might post about that later on.I posted on developerworks the other day about one of the problems and got a response which were good suggestions but not solutions I'm afraid.Here is the issue with more information on other approaches:We have a situation where there are currently 13 databases, one for a specific project and all inheriting from the same template. The prediction is that a new database (with the same template) will have to be created every week for some time. This is not a suitable solution and instead we want one database where all projects can fit in.The people working with a specific database still need to feel that they are working the same way seing only the documents for a particular project. The database has a frameset with an outline displaying 23 views which are opened in the right frame.Approach #1:For each existing and each new project (former db), create 23 new outline entries and 23 new views. Since we don't know how many projects the new db will contain this is not a good solution looking at performace and usability.Approach #2:Use an environment variable to set which project a specific person is working on. Depending on the choice, a fixed amount of outline entries would display computed content in a fixed amount of views or folders, based on the environment variable.Using approach #2 and views:It is possible to (in queryopen of a view), when clicking an outline entry for the view, perform an FTSearch (for example FIELD field_name = field_value) to find and display the documents for a specific project. However the resultset is not categorized and it has to be, so this is not an option.Using approach #2 and folders:In queryopen of a folder, delete any existing content in the folder using "RemoveAllFromFolder" (from previous runs), perform a lookup to a view (getDocumentsByKey on the environment variable value) and put the result (notesdocumentcollection) into the folder.This last solution works great BUT only when there are no response documents and also only if you are the only one working with the folders since they are shared. When clicking on a folder that has response documents, a message box displays saying:"Notes error: All related response documents are being removed from this folder along with their parents. (FolderName)".Also when refreshing the folder afterwards, all documents disappears. This error is due to the "RemoveAllFromFolder".I can't seem to catch the error either (I think it is 4005) and do a Resume Next or similar because it is not treated as an error. A messagebox appears and the folder is not rendered as it should.If I uncheck the folderoption "Show response documents in a hierarchy" the problem is gone. However this is not an option either.So even if I got rid if this problem I would still be stuck with the shared folder problem. I don't won't to create private folders because then I would be stuck with perfomance issues anyway if there are many users.I guess I could create a new folder each time an outline entry is clicked for a user, populate it and then remove it when the user leaves. But that really seems complicated as well as time-consuming for the user. It can not take longer time than it already does to open a folder as it is now.Approch #3:Each outline entry refers to a form which has the original view embedded. Now this is simple and works great BUT now I can't search in the embedded view AND the embedded view can not be auto-collapsed which makes it harder to read.I tried to fix th[...]



Conditional statements in html code

Tue, 01 Jan 2008 14:20:00 +0000

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2008 is here and I am confident it will be a very good year. My first post this year is no breaking news. Still good to know.

When creating web sites it always comes up browser specific issues where Internet explorer and Firefox don't render the code equally. So annoying... However using css and/or conditional statements in the html code it is possible to launch different html blocks depending on if the browser is Internet explorer or not.

The HTML will run if the browser is Internet explorer:


The HTML will run if the browser is NOT Internet explorer:

HTML



W3schools has an excellent css reference and this blog post explains and shows examples on conditional statements.

When "Recompile All LotusScript" returns an error

Wed, 12 Dec 2007 13:01:00 +0000

Recompiling all lotussript for a database returned an error today:
"
: LotusScript Error - Syntax Error"

Good thing it did, but it would have been helpful knowing what was wrong. I got no hint at all other than the form name. So I looked at the modification date and by who a change was last made and tried to find the most probable change request. Still its not easy if the form is big with a lot of scripts tied to it.

I opened query save, removed a bunch of code and tried to save and there it was. The other day I had copied over a small table with some fields from another form and forgot about two buttons which were making calls to functions in a script library. This script library was not declared in Options with Use "scriptlib", but no error was raised when saving until now that is. I decided to copy the functions into another script library that was used in this form, modified them slightly and everything worked and went back to normal.

While searching for this on developerWorks I found another probable cause which might be good to know about. When defining a public class in Lotusscript named 'Picture' it can be saved without errors, but when running "Recompile All Lotusscript" the same error occurs.

Book recommendation for SCJP 5.0

Thu, 06 Dec 2007 13:12:00 +0000

It's time for a new book recommendation from me. In May earlier this year I recommended the book "Head First JAVA". I finished the book two months ago or so. The book stayed being excellent through the end and it's time for the next step in my mission to be a Java God ;-)

To really understand and remember everything I have combined my theoretical knowledge with practical work in the Domino environment as well as outside in Eclipse since experience is invaluable in the learning cycle. Of course I have oceans of information and experience to learn and teach but we all have to start somewhere.

(image) So this mission must include a certification and therefore the natural choice for me had to be a preparation book for the certification test. I want to be a certified programmer for Java 5 so what would be better than reading a book named "Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5" with the same authors (Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates) as the previously recommended book? The book is really thick and is good exercize for my muscles carrying it around to and from work. Oh, and it is good reading as well. I have completed a chapter now and I am impressed as before. It has excellent coverage of all parts for the certification exam with tips and tricks, exercises and so on in a very structured way. It not only learns what to study but also how.

So go ahead and get this one if you want what I want. Read more on Google book search.

An interesting topic post from 2004 - Does Java certification matter?

Slow database performance

Sat, 01 Dec 2007 12:42:00 +0000

A database with slow performance can be caused by a lot of reasons. My last two cases were probably due to readers fields and deletion stubs.

If you have a slow view with a lot of documents in it, check if the documents have readers fields, it's a common cause and there are several suggested actions to take. If the user accessing the view only has access to a small part of all the documents it will render very slowly. A page (memory unit) will be read into memory consisting of approximately 300 documents. When scrolling down the view it will be recalculated. If you have access to all documents it will render pretty much as usual.

The other day I was troubleshooting a database which was slow to open with slow views. It had a view that it took about 2 minutes to open. The database had 50.000 documents and 129 views and this and several other views used readers fields so I figured that would be the problem.
I copied the database with all documents and accessed it with the same user and they behaved very differently. The same view that took about 2 minutes to open in the original database was opened in about 5 seconds in the copy. The only difference was the size of the database. The original was about 990MB and the copy started at 108MB.

So I figured that would be due to view indexes. An it probabaly were to some point but together with the view index it turned out that deletion stubs were part of it.

Five days a week, on each day, approximately 40.000 documents was deleted an new ones were created from an excel file (this was an old solution to update them). The purge interval was set to 120 days. So this means that there were about 40.000 * 88 (only weekdays) = 3.520.000 deletion stubs in the database. Since a deletion stub is about 100 bytes (at least it was in version 6) it means that the they used approximately 352MB of the space and the database consisted of a minimum of 352MB of deletion stubs although the count is more impressive.

The number of deletion stubs probably together with a corrupt view index caused the database to perform very slow. Fixup and Updall took a very long time as well and had to be aborted.

A copy of the database solved the problem but a long-term solution is of course to recode the agent to update the documents instead of replacing them and to make the purge interval more frequent.

Problem printing rich text fields

Wed, 31 Oct 2007 07:10:00 +0000

If you have a rich text field that contains a fair amount of information it will print nicely, but when it exceeds a certain amount of information each text paragraph will be printed on a separate page which causes a printout that normally would be of two pages to turn up on 40-50 pages. Really annoying and a waste of trees!

The solution to this problem is to enclose the rich text field in a table which compresses the content in the rich text field and prints nicely.

While testing, look at the print preview which shows the same result as the actual printing.

Prevent pasting documents into a view

Tue, 23 Oct 2007 13:41:00 +0000

Short tip today!
If you want to prevent documents from being pasted into a view, click on section 'Querypaste' for the view and type Continue=False in the sub routine.

Print selected documents and attachments from a view

Thu, 18 Oct 2007 16:11:00 +0000

I have been trying to figure out how to print a document and its attachments when marking it in a view. A colleague had an agent which did the works as long as the attachments only are word documents. But if you don't know if it is a word, pdf, rtf, jpg or any other attachment the code gets long, uggly and still you proabably haven't covered all possible cases. I have however found a solution thanx to Charles Robinson who shows how to shell a windows application to open the attachments.I have used my existing code with this one and the result is an agent that can run on selected documents in a view, print the documents and each document's attachments. It is run through a view action.The code is not ultimate at all and there are still some minor problems left like when no application gets associated with the attached file nothing is printed out and that acrobat reader doesn't close when done. Probably fixable, but I am satisfied for now.As you can see below I have used a sleep command. This might have to be adjusted depending on many different things, but it is needed or else the documents and attachments competes who gets to the printer first and everything is unsorted.Here's the code. Hope someone can enjoy it!In Options add Uselsx "*lsxlc" In Declarations add Charles Robinsons code:Const SEE_MASK_NOCLOSEPROCESS = &H40Const SEE_MASK_FLAG_NO_UI = &H400Private Type SHELLEXECUTEINFO cbSize As Long fMask As Long hwnd As Long lpVerb As String lpFile As String lpParameters As String lpDirectory As String nShow As Long hInstApp As Long lpIDList As Long lpClass As String hkeyClass As Long dwHotKey As Long hIcon As Long hProcess As LongEnd TypeDeclare Function ShellExecuteEx Lib "shell32.dll"_Alias "ShellExecuteEx" (SEI As SHELLEXECUTEINFO) As LongDeclare Function TerminateProcess Lib "kernel32"_Alias "TerminateProcess" (Byval hProcess As Long, Byval uExitCode As Long) As LongIn Initialize add the following code: On Error Goto ErrorHandler Dim SEI As SHELLEXECUTEINFO SEI.cbSize = Len(SEI) SEI.fMask = SEE_MASK_NOCLOSEPROCESS Or SEE_MASK_FLAG_NO_UI SEI.lpVerb = "print" SEI.nShow = 1 SEI.hInstApp = 0 SEI.lpIDList = 0 Dim s As New NotesSession Dim session As New LCSession Dim db As NotesDatabase Dim object As NotesEmbeddedObject Dim dc As NotesDocumentCollection Dim doc As NotesDocument Dim downloadfolder As String Dim extrachar As String Dim filecounter As Integer Dim filecount As Integer Dim filen As Variant Dim antalfiler As Variant Dim i As Integer, x As Integer, y As Integer Dim sFile As String Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace Dim success As Variant ' Create a folder for temporary storage of files downloadfolder = Environ("tmp") Set db = s.CurrentDatabase Set dc = db.UnprocessedDocuments For i = 1 To dc.Count Set doc = dc.GetNthDocument( i ) ' Print document Set uidoc = ws.EditDocument( False , doc , True , ) Call uidoc.Print(1) ' Get all attachments and print them filen=Evaluate("@AttachmentNames",doc) antalfiler=Evaluate("@Attachments", doc) Call uidoc.Close Delete uidoc If antalfiler(0)>0 Then For filecounter=0 To antalfiler(0)-1 x=x+1 Set Object = doc.GetAttachment( filen(filecounter) ) If ( object.Type = EMBED_ATTACHMENT ) Then fileCount = fileCount + 1 If Dir(downloadfolder+"\"+ filen(filecounter))="" Then extrachar="" Else ' Extra character in case there are attachments with the same name extrachar=Left(doc.universalid,4)+"___" End If Call object.ExtractFil[...]

Conventions for Java code

Fri, 12 Oct 2007 06:50:00 +0000

I like the structure with Java. Although you can create structure with any language it somehow feels as it comes with Java, so it feels easier to accomplish and is kind of satisfying (in a really geeky way). So included in my personal project to be a kick-ass java developer (;-) I am also aiming towards writing nice, readable code that is based on predefined code conventions and guidelines both for the programming part but also for commenting.

You might have heard that really good written code doesn't need commenting. Maybe that's a bit exaggerated but in some sense true. If all variables, methods, classes and so on are named after specific conventions they will be more readable to you and other programmers that might inherit your code some day.

Take a look at the conventions for coding and commenting here:

Get started with Dojo

Wed, 03 Oct 2007 09:50:00 +0000

Did you know that you could do this on any web page and fairly quickly? All you need to do is to access some javascript source files and add your own pictures. I might add the fisheye example to this blog later when I have more time.

With Dojo someone else has done the work for you to use for free and it works in any browser (or at least the most common ones).

I am currently looking into dojo and playing with it and I really like the way it's heading. An API (0.4.2) already exists much like Java's although they can't really be compared since the documentation certainly could be better with examples and references and it takes quite a lot of time to understand what to do with the objects if you're new to the toolkit. A really good thing is that you, as in Java, can choose what to include in your webpage. That is you don't have to import the entire library but only for example the widget functionality (dojo.widget.*).

Follow the link to dojo below to get started with several good tutorials and examples. But just to mention it, all you need to do is to download a zip-file and extract it to your file system. Then create a html-file, include dojo javascript source files and you're up and running.

Further on, and this is really interesting, there is a rumour that says that Dojo will be installed by default on the next version of Domino. Now if that's going to happen or not, I don't know, but it certainly gives me another reason to start looking at this.

If anyone knows any other good references or examples that you recommend please leave a comment.

4n0th3r gr8 g33k d8

Thu, 27 Sep 2007 07:27:00 +0000

(image) Well, I had no doubt about if this was going to be a good one or not, but just to be clear, it was!

This tuesday we had our second g33k date and approximately 30 developers, both customers and partners and actually an IBM:er ;-) showed up to listen to Viktor Krantz and Troy Reimer from Snapps talking about Quickr, dojo, JSON and other stuff. They showed us demos and really good code examples as well.

I have been looking more into the dojo toolkit that Viktor brought up during their presentation and it really fascinates me. It is SO easy to do cool stuff (depending on what you want to do and your level of skills of course). I can't believe I have avoided it before (not intentially though). Viktor explained to us about the pros of dojo and that it most likely will be part of next release of Domino as well, which makes it even more interesting.
Troy seems to be the king of coding structure and commenting just to mention something. A closer look at a lotusscript agent he made was a beautiful sight and I have learned a lot from that too. Thank's a lot guys for a great evening!

Besides this excellent show, we all had the privilege to meet each other and discuss those geeky things we like so much. Can't wait for next time!

Just before and in the beginning of the meeting I got a chance to very shortly show Ekakan's office that I have built in Second Life. I explained a little about what second life is, the purpose, how to build stuff, scripting and business ideas and I hope I am not the only one seeing the opportunities that lies here.

If you are interested in more info about Viktor and Troy, I described that in a recent post that you can read more about here.

And as a last thing I recorded a little piece of video where Viktor talks about Dojo. It's of a horrible quality but you can at least probably here something.

New ODS for Domino 8

Mon, 10 Sep 2007 06:00:00 +0000

The ODS (On Disk Structure) has changed for Domino from ODS 43 to ODS 48. It is not turned on by default though. Add this new notes.ini parameter to either the Domino server or the client and every new application you create will be with the new ODS version:

Create_R8_Databases=1


Upgrade existing databases to ODS 48 by using the notes.ini parameter and perform a copy-style compact (Load Compact -c).

Read more on this technote and on Chris Whisonant's blog who also writes about design compression.

Vince Schuurman writes about compression problems which is caused by the fact that encryption is enabled by default in Domino 8 (which can be read in the comments by Chris Whisonant).

September G33K

Thu, 30 Aug 2007 16:39:00 +0000

* UPDATE *
Date for september g33k has been changed to the 25th of september


(image)
In may 24th earlier this year the first g33k date took off for which the expectations were set high and which also ended up very successfully. Another g33k meeting has been planned for september 25th and you wouldn't want to miss it!!!

This time Viktor Krantz and Troy Reimer from Snapps (US) are keynote speakers and will talk about the relatively new product Quickr and other things I'm sure. Snapps is the official IBM Design Partner for Quickplace (Quickr) and has produced high-quality, free Quickplace and Quickr templates. For the interested you can find templates for Quickplace 7 here and Lotus Quickr 8 templates at QuickrTemplates.com. Snapps are also co-producers of Collaboration University and let's not forget to mention Rob Novak's and Viktor Krantz's very popular session 'The great code giveaway' which is held every year at Lotusphere.

This is a great opportunity to meet other developers working with Lotus Notes/Domino, Java, web etc. and I assure you it will be both instructive, fun and beerish in a comfortable mixture that especially g33ks like us appreciate ;-)

The time for the meeting is set to 06:00 PM and will be held in the center of Stockholm, Sweden also this time at Ekakan's premises. Check here for more details and the latest information.

Sign up here in a comment or send a mail if you would like to join us!

Java 5 in Notes 8

Mon, 27 Aug 2007 11:21:00 +0000

Java 5 (Tiger) is included in Notes 8. N/D 8 is backwards compatible though and defaults to earlier API. To make use of the new Java API when writing source code directly in the Notes client some adjustments are needed.

Add the following line to Notes.ini and restart notes:

javaCompilerTarget=1.5

Got this tip from Mikkel Heisterberg on lekkimworld.com.
