Remotely Debugging Java Applications with Domino 11
For Domino customers on v9 or 10, you might be familiar with debugging a Java agent remotely on IBM JVM using the following server ini’s and set Port 8000 in Debug Configuration from the Designer client: JavaEnableDebug=1 JavaDebugOptions=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=8000  This will work up to Domino v10 but not on Domino v11. In fact, doing so will cause it to crash! This article is going to help developers looking for a way to debug Java agents remotely on Domino v11. The pre-requisites are:  Domino v11 or above on Windows Server 2016 / 2019. HCL Domino Console. Notes, Designer and Administrator Client v11 or above. Java agent to be debugged. Any Web Browser to run Java agent.  Domino v11 uses OpenJDK. With the above ini's enabled, both the JVMs would attempt to bind to same port (8000) and the second process that attempts to bind to this port would fail and crash. To overcome this problem, the idea is to remove the Port 8000 from the Debug and attach it to some other random Port.  First, you will need to add the below ini’s to the server’s notes.ini.   JavaEnableDebug=1  JavaDebugOptions=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n  Note that we are not binding the Debug to Port 8000 by omitting address=8000, as compared to ini which was set on earlier version of Domino.  The JVM will then pick a random port. To know the random Port number, simply quit and load http or run your Java agent from web browser and check the console from HCL Domino Console Program. You will need to restart http task after adding those ini’s to make it work.  Note down this Port number somewhere as you would need it in next step. (The server console in the Administrator Client doesn’t show the Port number information.) With your Port number, you are going to bind to the Debug from the Designer client. Go to Tools menu > Debug Server-side Javascript > Manage Debug Configuration You should land on the Debug Configuration window. Here you need to mention the Port number which you noted down from the HCL Domino Console...

Sending future mails from your HCL Notes Client
Have you ever wanted to schedule future emails from your Notes Client? Well, now HCL Domino supports scheduling email messages, which allows you to do just that. So, draft your email, assign it a send date, and sit back and relax. The email will be delivered by the router at the time you specify. This feature is very useful for scheduling announcements, newsletters, or any mail which you want to be delivered at a future specified time. You need to be on Domino v10 or v11 (using the Mail10.ntf or Mail11.ntf template) to be able to schedule messages to be sent in the future. Here’s how it works. The configuration document setting “Allow users to schedule a delivery time for messages” is enabled by default, so you don’t have to change anything in that document. You would make sure that the mail policy setting has the checkbox selected to enable the delivery option, as illustrated here. If you don’t have a mail policy, then you can create a new one. If you already have a mail policy, you merely update it. After creating or updating the mail setting, you need to give the following command to update the mail policy in the user’s mail file. Tell adminp process mail policy The next step is to restart the Notes Client, so that it will pull the new policy settings from the server. Advanced users can use this command from the command prompt of their client machine to update the policy on the client's side without restarting: C:\notes\ndyncfg -2 Once the settings are pulled by the Notes Client, you will see the following option in delivery options while sending mail: “Delivery Options at the user side.” Simply select the date and time for delivery and the router will deliver it at that...

HCL Domino Notes Client 11 New Feature
Last January 2020, we launched a new version of Domino Notes Client (V11) which contains cleaner and modernized UI, minimalist menus, simplified forms and user experience improvements for Mail.   Under Modernized UI Notes Client V11 appearance has changed the new color scheme and design. Notes Client UI focused on Simplicity so that it will be more user friendly.  Also, for user experience Improvements, we focused on Progressive disclosure to show the advanced features and actions as the user needs them.  Finally, we focused on Notes Client performance to be faster and more stable to increase effectiveness of the user.  In addition to the aforementioned enhancements, new features are also made available in response to the feedbacks and requests from our customers.  What’s New in Notes v 11  Export to PDF - You can now export emails and documents to PDF from the HCL Notes Client. 24+ hour meeting support - Meetings that are longer than 24 hours are now supported by the HCL Notes® Calendar. Three Click Support - Three click support adds a level of security when a user opens an attachment within an email. Network resiliency improvements - When there is no network connection (when the cable is unplugged or the wireless is unavailable), the Notes client responds with an error message.

Synched release schedule - Starting with this release, Sametime and Notes follow the same release schedule. TLS 1.2 support for SAML - Notes and Embedded Sametime now support TLS 1.2 with Notes Federated login (SAML).

Licensing Update: Introducing CCX, External User Entitlements
This year, HCL Digital Solutions has delivered a modern, per user, licensing model for Domino – HCL Domino Complete Collaboration Business Edition (a.k.a. “CCB”). CCB has helped facilitate the growth in the Domino customer base and new user adoption and we’re proud to announce the completion of CCB licensing with the introduction of an eXternal user entitlement – the “CCX” Authorized User.  CCB: Simplifying HCL Domino Licensing  CCB is a key step in our journey to provide one license model for HCL Domino, eliminating the uncertainty of server capacity and sub-capacity (PVU) licensing. A simple “Per User everything model” - use any client and any protocol for any server capacity to run all applications – including enterprise e-mail (HCL Verse). Transparent license compliance management by simple user counting. Adding additional capabilities to the core Domino environment under CCB entitlements – like HCL SafeLinx 1.1 which is now entitled for all CCB users. We recently added a Guest user entitlement to permit web applications to run on CCB licensed servers – vastly improving the value of CCB. (This blog post contains updates to the announcement, “HCL Complete Collaboration (CCB) Guest Licensing” from July 29, 2020) More capabilities will be provided using a simple “add-on” scheme for CCB licensing, which now includes: Domino Volt: can be licensed to all CCB users at renewal or new CCB license sale Sametime Premium v11.5: special price add-on to all CCB users , as soon as Sametime 11.5 goes eGA in November. (Sametime Premium stand-alone will also be available at full price.) CCX: per user add-on for external users, from the end of September. Introducing CCX   CCX is an add-on to a CCB entitled Domino environment extending applications to external users at an attractive per user price. We now distinguish between internal users - who must be...
