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...
