Even though some of us wish they were real since it was said they could make poisonous water potable and heal sickness — both things that could certainly come in handy — unicorns are the making of fantasy. While Domino isn’t a mythical creature of great grace, it has proven its security, versatility, scalability and value in large enterprises for the last thirty years. Because it’s been around so long and has such a committed and die-hard customer community (even calling themselves “Team Yellow”) it has taken on legendary status. It has also inherited misconceptions — such as the platform is out of date or even obsolete. Nothing is further from the truth. Let’s walk you through some of these myths and show you what is possible with the Domino of today.

HCL Nomad brings the power of HCL Domino applications beyond the desktop, directly to where your users need to be. Get the same applications, unparalleled security, and offline capabilities — now on mobile. Deliver your apps on Apple iPhone and iPad, Android phones, and Android and Chrome OS tablets with minimal effort. Check out this feature sheet to learn more about HCL Nomad

While you can still use your Notes client to access your Domino appsapps can now be written for web browsers. Existing apps can be modified to run on a browser, and new apps can be written for browser access. The example you see here is an internal app we use for order processing written for the web and is used daily by our sales team.  

As much as we love and appreciate our Domino developers and administrators fluent in LotusScript and XPageswe want to open organization up to a much broader range of skills and talent and future proof your investment 

Now, any JavaScript developer can enhance, integrate and build new applications that include data and processes from Domino — without rewriting from scratch. This example here is a tracker application built with a web UI written in React – complete with cool filter sets. 

HCL Domino v11 is the most open version of the platform yet. Our integrations enable enterprises to more fully leverage Domino with other tools and applications across their business.  

Here we show a couple of integrations we’ve enabled. On the left, you see an integration between our internal sales app with our CRM system that enables real-time data verificationOn the right, we’ve integrated an app with Slack to provide instant notifications within a channel. Within Slack, a user is able to directly approve or reject a proposal submission which then advances the document according to the workflow set in our app. 

Domino apps are rocksolid and reliable. Which is probably why most of our customers haven’t thought about redesigning their apps or assume that Domino doesn’t provide the flexibility to do so.  

Here are several examples of how we modernized an app to today’s design standards. We also recently wrote a blog post about it. We not only gave complex, business-critical app a face lift, but made it work on mobile devices.

Domino v11. Fantastic, not fantasy. Get it done with Domino. Get a demo today.

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...
