Upcoming Sessions With OpenNTF and at Engage

This month contains a few presentations and sessions of note for me, and I realized I should compile a list.

To start out with, I'll be the second presenter at next week's OpenNTF webinar, which will be about the Domino One-Touch Setup capability from V12 onward. The first leg of the presentation will feature Roberto Boccadoro covering its use in the standard case of easing the lives of administrators, while my section will cover more developer-centric needs, particularly my use of it as a tool for repeatable integration-test suites of Domino code. This webinar will take place next week, on May 19th, and you can register for it at

While I won't personally be attending Engage this year, it's shaping up to be a good conference and OpenNTF and Jakarta EE will be well represented (in chronological order):

  • Ro05. Happy Birthday, OpenNTF! Now What? - on Tuesday, Serdar Basegmez (and possibly other OpenNTF directors) will run our traditional community roundtable, where you can hear about what OpenNTF has been up to and provide ideas about where you'd like us to go.
  • De20. Domino apps CI with Docker - also on Tuesday, Martin Pradny will discuss the use of the NSF ODP Tooling project within a Docker container to automate NSF building within a CI infrastructure in a smooth and reliable way.
  • De17. Domino + Jakarta EE = AppDev In Heaven - on Wednesday morning, Daniele Vistalli will cover the XPages Jakarta EE Support project, going over the myriad Jakarta and MicroProfile specifications that it brings to Domino development and showing how you can bring them to bear to fix a lot of long-standing Domino dev limitations.

If you're attending Engage, I definitely suggest you check out all of those.

My Slides From Engage 2019 - De04. Java With Domino After XPages

Engage 2019 has come and gone, and I had an excellent time. I also quite enjoyed presenting my "group therapy" session on some options that XPages developers have for the future. In a lot of ways, it was similar to my presentation at CollabSphere last year, mixed with the various new developments I've talked about on here since then:

Engage is just around the corner in Brussels, and I'll be joining everyone there, presentation in hand. Specifically:

Dev04. Java With Domino After XPages
Tuesday, May 14 at 16:00 in room E. Mahy

XPages guided Domino web development out of a world of archaic proprietary hacks and into the realm of Java server development and something approximating Java EE. Now that the XPages framework is moribund, the question is: what's next? If you've built up Java skills over the years, you have a direct path to use them in the new modern world, whether via OSGi plugins and new XPages extensions on Domino or standalone Java web projects. This session will discuss the lessons we learned from XPages, how they correspond to newer technologies, and how to bring your existing apps and plugins forward.

If you attended my session CollabSphere last year (by the way, you should go to CollabSphere this year too), you may note that the title is pretty similar to that one, albeit changing "In Domino" to "With Domino". This massive change in preposition reflects how things have only gotten more awkward for us in the intervening year.

So, if you're attending Engage, join me as we work through our sorrows together!
