Best Practice Makes Perfect

A collaboration with Domino developers about how to do it and how to get it right in Domino

I have word from one of our developers at Iris that the problem that causes scripts to load extremely slowly when they use many script libraries, has been found and corrected. Rather than being "ridiculous," performance in such a situation should be merely "bad" from now on -- a considerable improvement. For security reasons, the extra work that caused the slowdown in the first place still has to be done, but at least it can be done more efficiently.

Of course, it will be a while before a release that has this fix is in your hands, but it's something to look forward to.

We have a program in IBM where we can give other employees "thanks awards." Nothing too expensive -- the recipient can choose among hats and jackets and ice chests and secret agent USB drive pens and so on -- but a nice token. I have so awarded the developer who corrected the problem -- in gratitude on behalf of the Notes developer community.

Incidentally, if you're having a problem with this now, the recommended solution is to reduce the number of script libraries by merging some. A main factor causing long load times is the depth of your hierarchy of script libraries -- not just the total number of libraries.
