  • Our LS10 session offering on Wednesday: BP203 - new Java APIs in 8.5.1 with up to 10 demos, 2 undocumented Notes functions and Lotusscript like you have never seen it before

    Our session "BP203 Leverage the New Java APIs in IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.1!" will provide a high-level overview of two new Java APIs in Lotus Notes 8.5.1 - the UI API and the Domino Designer API.
    Instead of showing too many technical details, our plan is to focus on real-life scenarios for the new APIs.

    We have created a collection of up to 10 demos for both APIs, including
    • a universal help system for the Notes sidebar that provides information for the current database, form and field
    • an integration of Mikkel Heisterberg's LotusScript.doc into Domino Designer
    • an alternative picture based address selection dialog for emails that can be used without modifying the mail template

    and we'll demonstrate ways how LotusScript code can communicate with the Eclipse framework to leverage the new API functionality as well.
    This will include an application that uses multithreaded LotusScript - a new technology to move your long running LotusScript tasks into the background in order to make your Notes applications snappier.

    Come and join us on Wednesday from 3:00pm - 4:00pm in DL S. Hemisphere III !

    And please also join us on Thursday from 7:00am - 8:00am in SW Toucan 1 to share our experiences with Application Architecture based on Composite Application (BOF206).

    The session was great! Could you share the demo files and/or write tutorials in this blog?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! We did not show much code in the session, because that would have been quite confusing for the audience. But it will certainly be explained and published in the next weeks in this blog - some in complete details, others with the general idea, a reference link to documentation and a code snippet that helps you to develop your own solution.

    In fact, we developed up to 10 demos for the session, but we could not show them all. So there is also some other stuff that we can publish, e.g. design modification in DDE (1-click action on a Notes view in DDE to make it look like a PIM view).

    Even though the slides are two years old, i found them quite interesting. I tried to use a custom URL handler in Lotus Notes. I was able to register my URL handler in Windows. But Notes ignores it and sends all URLs to the default browser instead of the registered application. The browser finally opens the application. But this leaves an empty browser window behind.

    So I'm eager to know, how you were able to make your custom URL handler known to Lotus Notes.
