I’m working on projects that involve many technologies and frameworks.

Particularly in one of our projects the IceGuard many things have been used such as Flutter for mobile application, Node-Red for  integrations,  IBM Cloud and IBM Watson IoT services.

We have reached a point where an asset management application such as sensors and gateways is required.

The application has the requirements:

1 – Run OffLine and Web

2 – Data replication

3 – Authentication and  Data security

4 – Integration with other applications.

5 – Implement a simple flow of approval.

Another detail is that we needed it to be developed rapidly.

Much is said that the Lotus IBM HCL Notes & Domino is dead.

Not for my case. If I were to use another product (s)/technologies I would spend two working days at least to architect the entire application, choose the Framworks to do the job, not to mention  database modeling,  authentication service, etc., etc.

With the HCL Notes & Domino i create the application in just one day!

It is a simple application, but that solved a real problem of my project.

Notes & Domino do the job.

As of April 10, 2018, Google has deprecated Google Cloud Messaging (GCM). The GCM server and client APIs are deprecated and will be removed as soon as April 11, 2019. IBM Traveler uses GCM for push notifications with IBM Verse for Android clients. Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is the new supported notification infrastructure. This flash details what actions should be taken for IBM Traveler and the IBM Verse for Android clients to support the FCM notification infrastructure.

With the launch of Domino 10  knowledge of JavaScript and how to work with JSON Objects will be required for the new development model.

As i am working on a IoT project  i need to learn JSONata to manipulate lots of JSON objects.

JSONata is underpinned by the semantics of the location path inspired by XPath, the ability to format the output into any JSON structure inspired by XQuery, and the functional programming model inspired by Scheme.

The semantics of the location path inspired by XPath

  • Simple and intuitive syntax for selecting values within a structure.
  • Powerful predicate mechanism for complex queries and data joins.
  • Built-in functions and operators for manipulating and aggregating data.

The ability to format the output into any JSON structure inspired by XQuery

  • Standard JSON syntax used for constructing new objects and arrays.
  • Any valid JSON data is also a valid JSONata expression.
  • Allows template style queries to be constructed.

The functional programming model inspired by Scheme.

  • Implements the ‘metacircular evaluator’ described in SICP.
  • Supports user-defined functions (closures).
  • Turing complete.

The lightweight footprint of the runtime processor enables it to run in the web browser or as a node.js module with no package dependencies.

Take a look at http://jsonata.org

Domino 10 beta 2 started last week. I download the files and wish to run it on docker.

I follow Tim Clark’s blog series about Domino 9.0.1 on Docker.

I change a few lines on dockerfile (just change the installation file name).

Another difference was the line to start the container. I add the port 8585 to do a remote setup

docker run -it -p 1352:1352 -p 8888:80 -p 8443:443 -p 8585:8585 –name Domino10Beta -v domino_data:/local/notesdata kenio:Domino10Beta2

An issue was introduced in Domino 9.0.1 FP9 that could result in SMTP mail headers with random characters inserted into From, Sendto, and Copyto fields. This could then result in non-delivery of mail to/from Internet email addresses when using the Domino notes.ini parameter SMTPVerifyAuthenticatedSender=1.

Symptoms of the issue include receiving messages containing garbled sender names. Opening the message and replying results in a number of embedded garbled characters in the header. You can observe this by viewing the page source or by simply examining the content when opening an email. Another method is to capture the SMTP outbound message and examine the header.

Fix Available:
This issue is tracked as SPR# JCARAQSJB6 and is fixed in Domino 9.0.1FP9 Interim Fix 1. For download links, go to the Domino tab in technote 1657963Interim Fixes & JVM patches for 9.0.1.x versions of IBM Notes/Domino & add-ons.

IBM Traveler 9.0.1.18 enabled by default a feature that allows Traveler to “Run as a User” instead of as a server. This feature resolves several long standing issues with accessing the user’s data as the server ID.

The last point above may cause sync issues for mobile users. If the access controls are inadvertently set to values that restrict individual users, but do not restrict the Traveler server, then users that could sync when running as the Traveler server ID might not be able to sync when running as their user ID.

Note that the Traveler administrator can disable the Run as User feature by setting the notes.ini value NTS_USER_SESSION=false on all Traveler servers and restarting the servers. This may be a quick way of restoring sync capability to the few affected mobile users with restrictive access control settings. However, it is not recommended because it is a global setting, so all users will lose the benefits of Run as User when it is disabled.

Last week a customer ask for a change in his Domino mail group management.

Some people with the right to change groups (with the role GroupModifier) made a change on several groups and a big problem arrives with mail routing to this groups.

The question was: How prevent Group Modifiers to modify some groups on Domino?

O only found one solution : Change the permission on the group document.

I created a simple agent and modify the group field “DocumentAccess” and put the Role ServerModifier. (Only admins has this role on Domino Directory) and also change the Group Owner to the group Administrators.

The simple agent is bellow.

FIELD DocumentAccess := “[ServerModifier]”;
SELECT @All

Prepare Ubuntu to install IBM Notes 9.0.1 FP7

Install Synaptic. We need to install some packages

sudo apt-get install synaptic

Start Synaptic and go to Settings -> Repositories -> Other software

Add the following URI for the repository:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse

Close Synaptic. It will ask to reload the repositories and maybe you get the index reporitory error, you can ignore it.

run on terminal:

Install IBM Notes 9.0.1

dpkg -i ibm-notes-9.0.1.i586.deb
dpkg -i ibm-sametime-9.0.1.i586.deb

For Brazilian Portuguese only:
dpkg -i ibm-notes-core-ptbr-9.0.1.i586.deb

After you install and configure the IBM Notes 9.0.1 close the client and install the FP7 using the command:

dpkg -i ibm_notes_fixpack-9.0.1.i586.deb
