Build Automation for XPages Presentation Slides – AUSLUG/Inform 2015

I just finished a presentation today at AUSLUG / INFORM 2015 in Melbourne, Australia.

Thank you to the organisers and sponsors for putting on the event, and thanks to all the attendees as my session!

The slides from my session have been uploaded to the Auslug connections community, I have also uploaded them to slideshare, and they should appear below.
Please note there is an Appendix at the end which explains the build.properties that we use for building XPages OSGi plugins.

Please leave a comment or message me on twitter @gregorbyte if you have any questions I will be happy to answer them!

  1. Great topics and info! Thanks for posting the slides. I wish I could've seen your presentation in-person.

  2. Thanks Eric! If there is anything that wasn't clear from slides just ask and I can fill in the gaps.

    Hello.
    I try to put it here, though it is not very relevant.
    I’m trying to create my first DOTS tasklet using Domino 9.01FP8

    I followed the slides here from 19 to 20 and from 21 to 27.
    https://www.slideshare.net/sbasegmez/bp207-download?next_slideshow=1

    Unfortunately, the code that is generated by two errors:

    – The project was not built since its build path is incomplete. Can not find the class file for lotus.domino.NotesException. Fix the build path then try building this project fox.test Unknown Java Problem
    – The type lotus.domino.NotesException can not be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from required .class files

    Unfortunately I could not attach pictures.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Hi sorry for delay I have been on Holidays!
      I have never done DOTS for FP8, however it sounds as though your target Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is not set properly?

      The NotesException class should be available from the Domino JRE. so make sure the JRE library in you build path is not using the default eclipse one, but is using target Domino JRE.

      Are you using the XPages SDK to set up your eclipse environment? this should create the Domino JRE for you, and help set up the DOTS target platform

      In any case I recommend joining the XPages Slack Chat https://xpages-slack.herokuapp.com/ as there are a few people in there who are familiar with DOTS and should be able to help out (you can post images and code snippets in there too.

      Also try posting the question on Stack Overflow using the ‘xpages’ tag as this can also be a good way to get some help

    No way.
    Four days (including weekend) trying to create my first DOT task but I will not even compile it.
    I can not imagine to debug and upload.

    I followed this:
    https://www.slideshare.net/sbasegmez/bp207-download?next_slideshow=1

    and this:
    https://www.slideshare.net/flinden68/let-me-introduce-you-dots?qid=99fdcfa4-2d7a-4e01-8ab4-004c0468df3b&v=&b=&from_search=1

    And lots of other stuff on the internet but but it’s all old stuff for version 8.5.

    Can you tell me where I can find documentation for version 9.01 to create DOTS tasklet?

    Very much appreciated any help.
