XPages Extension Library: A Step-by-Step Guide to the Next Generation of XPages Components

XPages is a truly groundbreaking technology. Its initial release in 2009 revolutionized web application development on Notes®/Domino® and brought new life and vibrancy to the developer community. As a runtime framework built on top of standards-based technologies and open source libraries, it greatly simplified the art of web development for the existing community and removed barriers to entry for non-Domino developers. Suddenly, it was a breeze to create a web page that pulled data from a Domino view or extracted a set of fields from a Notes document. The process of weaving these pages together to form compelling web applications became a nobrainer. In a nutshell, the advent of XPages meant that cranking out a half-decent Domino web application was easy and fast.

The good news is that after the 2009 revolution, XPages evolution continued apace. Within just nine months of XPages’ official debut, we shipped a new release in Notes/Domino 8.5.1, which included lots of new features and, most notably, support for the Notes Client. This meant that users could take XPages web applications offline and run them locally in Notes! While we were working hard to push out more XPages technology, its adoption continued to grow. By Lotusphere® 2010, we were getting invaluable customer feedback on real-world XPages application development—the good, the bad, and the ugly. (It was mostly good!) A key theme emerged from the community at this time, one that really resonated with us. The message was simple: Yes, it was indeed easy and fast to write XPages web applications, but developing truly sleek and professional applications remained difficult and required expertise that was often beyond the core skill set of the typical Domino developer. Solving this would be our next big challenge.

The XPages Extension Library’s next-generation XPages controls make application development far more efficient, effective, scalable, and rewarding. With IBM® Lotus® Notes®/Domino® 8.5.3 and Upgrade Pack 1, IBM has incorporated powerful new capabilities and support. These components and technologies are now fully ready for even the toughest production challenges.

XPages Extension Library is the first and only complete guide to Domino development with this library; it’s the best manifestation yet of the underlying XPages Extensibility Framework. Complementing the popular Mastering XPages, it gives XPages developers complete information for taking full advantage of the new components from IBM.

Combining reference material and practical use cases, the authors offer step-by- step guidance for installing and configuring the XPages Extension Library and using its state-of-the-art applications infrastructure to quickly create rich web applications with outstanding user experiences. Next, the authors provide detailed step-by-step guidance for leveraging the library’s powerful new support for REST services, mobile and social development, and relational data. The book concludes by showing how to include Java™ code in Domino XPages applications—a great way to make them even more powerful.

It’s amazing to think that AutoCAD came into being more than a quarter of a century ago, at a time when most people thought that personal computers weren’t capable of industrial-strength tasks like CAD. (The acronym stands for Computer-Aided Drafting, Computer-Aided Design, or both, depending on whom you talk to.) What’s...
