Lotus Remote Residency / Wiki Deliverable - Best Practices for Building Web Applications for Domino 8.5
09/28/2009 03:27 PM by Chris Toohey
This residency begins 19 Oct 2009, ends 11 Dec 2009 (8 weeks), and requires 8 residents. The residency is a remote effort, enabling all participants to work from their primary work location.
Having participated in the first Lotus Remote Residency, I'd recommend you sign up - you not only get the opportunity to share what you know (read: SME recognition), but you also get to work with some of the best and brightest in the community. I've made long-lasting connections with both my fellow residency members as well as see a lot of referrals even today coming from my bio page in the wiki.
Specific topics the residency will cover include:
- High level introduction of XPages.
- Introduction to the value of Domino as a Web app platform and Designer as the tool for building those apps.
- Review of the underlying technologies and skills required to build a Domino web app using XPages. Will also include a focus on JSF and Dojo.
- Best practices approach to Domino web application development, including an MVC architecture approach.
- Understanding Domino design elements, specifically focusing on XPages and other design elements pertinent in an XPage built app.
- Sample of building a Domino web app from scratch which illustrates how to use XPages.
- Building workflow into the web application.
- Modernizing existing applications - focusing on conversion of Notes client apps to XPages as well as modernizing Domino Web apps built on the classic technology.
- Server Configuration, with special focus on clustering and other new settings related to XPages 8.0 resources.
