Intro to the XPage Java dev Tutorials

It is finally on its way!

In February or March I decided that I want to start a tutorial series on XPage development and really share what I have been able to figure out this past year or so.  As I have said numerous times, I am a big fan of Java and think it is very important for every serious XPage developer to know.  I spent a great deal of time setting up an environment at home to be able to do this.  It includes a domain controller (samba) running on an Ubuntu Linux Server, Domino running on windows 7, and a client also running on windows 7.  I do a short intro in the video.

I want to do these tutorials differently from those that I have seen so far.  I do not want to just write a class and say, here use it, but rather go into a “real” project, or better a project that could be real.  It is not enough for me to just show a few snippets and say have fun with it, I want to build something that can be used so that we also hit real world problems.  I am not going to sugar coat the videos and edit out every little mistake and plan out every line that I am going to write…. I have an idea of what I want to accomplish, mistakes be damned.  My mistakes can help you learn as well as show that we are all human.

In this video, we will be giving a quick intro to the environment, take a brief look at the server documents and groups that I set up, and most importantly install the extension libraries and openNTF Domino API.  (May I please just call it ODA?)  We install them both onto the server and onto designer.  Please keep in mind that this video also serves as a test for me so that I know that the software I am using actually plays in the quality that I am going for.  So without further ado, enjoy the video!


Just a quick note, I am really annoyed with the video quality.  The good news is that the source video is much nicer.  I am going to have to go through and re-edit it with better software.  At least it is the intro video / ExtLibs installation video and not the project kickoff.  Also, do not be too disturbed by the first linux part and the small window.  The windows stuff is displayed full sized.

About reederProgramming

I already have an about me page, so I will just put a quick bit of info here. I am a Notes/Domino developer at holistic-net GmbH located in Hannover, Germany. I use Java primarily at home and as often as I can at work. I have dabbled in C# and a few other languages and platforms. This website started out as a place for me to quickly store and access some of my most important how-tos and has started to become a place where I can really help others too!
