A Practical Primer for XPages Application Development, Debugging, and Performance

 

Using XPages, Lotus® Notes® and Domino® developers can quickly create state-of-the-art web, mobile, and Notes client business applications using standard technologies like HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and XML. Now, there’s a perfect portable XPages quick reference for every working developer. Straight from the experts at IBM®, XPages Portable Command Guide offers fast access to working code, tested solutions, expert tips, and example-driven best practices. Drawing on their unsurpassed experience as IBM XPages lead developers and customer consultants, the authors explore many lesser known facets of the XPages runtime, illuminating these capabilities with dozens of examples that solve specific XPages development problems. Using their easy-to-adapt code examples, you can develop XPages solutions with outstanding performance, scalability, flexibility, efficiency, reliability, and value.

 

Covers lots of commands and parameters related to

  • XPages behavior modification through xsp.properties
  • Notes/Domino configuration files
  • XSP Command Manager and OSGi Console
  • The XSP Client-Side JavaScript Object
  • Server Side JavaScript scripting
  • Server Side JavaScript debugging via global functions, simple programming constructs, and logging
  • Instantly access all XPages commands: Use this book as your quick offline solutions resource
  • Logical how-to topic groupings provide one-stop research
  • Compact size makes it easy to carry with you—wherever you go
  • “Create Your Own Journal” section with blank, lined pages makes it easy to personalize this book for your needs
  • “What Do You Want to Do?” chart inside the front cover helps you quickly find specific tasks

Designed for all Lotus and Domino developers with at least some XPages experience, XPages Portable Command Guide is the ideal companion and follow-up to Mastering XPages from IBM Press, the world’s #1 book on XPages technology.

Synopsis:

This is the definitive reference for every Lotus/Domino developer who wants to succeed with XPages. Drawing on their own unsurpassed experience pioneering XPages technologies and helping IBM customers succeed with them, the authors covers everything readers need to configure the XPages runtime for any target platform, and to optimize XPages for any end-user requirement. XPages Portable Command Guide thoroughly covers XSP properties, XSP Command Manager instructions, XPages INI variables, OSGi console commands, debugging, logging, and more. The authors explore many lesser-known facets of the XPages runtime that offer developers immense potential, including special framework preferences, properties and programmable objects that enable applications to be tuned and adapted for even the most rigorous real-world environments. These advanced features are illuminated through dozens of practical examples which offer immediately usable solutions to everyday challenges related to performance, scalability, and application behavior. The perfect complement to IBM Press's popular Mastering XPages, this book helps experienced XPages developers go even further - building solutions that offer even more performance, scalability, flexibility, efficiency, reliability, and value.
