Best Practice Makes Perfect

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

I'd earlier reported a weird bug that caused one script library to suddenly get dozens of superfluous errors when another library that it includes, is edited. I got word this morning that a fix was submitted for 8.5.3. Caveat: As usual, nothing is final until it's released.

1) Wow

8.5.3 sure is shaping up to be a major fix release. That's good news for DDE.

I just pray there aren't any major regression bugs. 8.5.0/8.5.1 was pure torture in that area... so many *awesome* things held up from deployment because standard mission-critical basic functionality was made unreliable.

It doesn't sound like there are any major re-architecting changes underway for 8.5.3 though, so I'm hoping my suspicions are correct that this is truly a quality-focused release.

2) Thanks for that

It would be nice if this fixed compiled script libraries with %INCLUDE references where the file does not exist.

I see this frequently since our products are distributed with compiled script libraries and a %INCLUDE that references a source file on one of our servers.

This becomes a problem when a user wants to do something as change an agent's schedule.

Red boxes appear all over the place once the agent is opened in Designer.

3) More details on this bug?

Hi Andre, I have a customer reporting similar superfluous errors so the timing of this is great. Unfortunately I'm not having much luck finding more information on the details of the bug (on your blog or elsewhere) so could you point me in the right direction please?
