Howdy, stranger!

Welcome to my cabin in the woods!

This site is dedicated to (web) development with IBM Collaborative Solutions (esp. IBM Notes/Domino and XPages), work, life and other stuff I may find important enough to write about. The rules are simple: if it fits in here I post it - and you are invited to comment on that if you like.

Creating a simple REST service in XPages

This evening I encountered this question on twitter: Do any Notes friends know if you can use JAXB to unmarshall XML in a java Notes Agent? — Steve Zavocki (@szavocki) 28. August 2017 The answers were clear and so was mine: don't try to mimic XML or something using an Agent. Use a Custom REST Service instead.

Schalten - aber smart!Post in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Seit einiger Zeit befasse ich mich mit Smarthome und Homeautomation. Die Möglichkeiten, die sich bieten, sind vielschichtig und bringen etwas mehr Komfort ins eigene Zuhause.

Da einige Lichtquellen wie z.B. günstige LED-Strips meist nicht “smart” sind, wollte ich sie wenigstens [...]

Today the ICS community got this important information via common social networks aka Skype, Twitter and Facebook: The cat's out of the bag! in just a few weeks I'll be joining the @salesforce #Ohana I'm ridiculously excited! — Amanda Bauman (@amandabauman) August 15, 2017 To be honest: I expected that sooner or later. We talked about the situation inside IBM months ag [...]
