Welcome to the Redbooks Wiki on using Best Practices for Domino 8.5 Web Application Development
The focus of this Redbooks Wiki is to help you understand improvements in IBM Lotus Domino 8.5 as a web development platform. The primary focal point is the introduction of XPages in IBM Lotus Domino 8.5 and discussing how XPages dramatically shortens the learning curve for Notes and Domino developers. Not only do XPages now allow you to incorporate Web 2.0 features and functionality into your web applications, but XPages continue to leverage your existing Domino development skills, while intuitively incorporating new design element features.
Objective of this Redbooks Wiki
The objective of this Redbooks Wiki is twofold:
- Provide guidance on Best Practices for Domino Web Development, with emphasis on the new XPages design element. We introduce the key new features of XPages and discuss how and why these are meaningful within the context of Domino Web Development.
- Within this Redbooks Wiki, we provide two hands on tutorials and sample code which provides you with an excellent chance to begin working with XPages and understanding the improvements in Domino 8.5 Web application development. As a foundation application for each of the tutorials, we begin with a well known Lotus Notes and Domino application - the Document Library Template.
- Sample Tutorial 1 shows you how to extend the life of your existing Lotus Notes Client applications by enabling them into an XPages application. You can review the scope and objectives of this scenario example here.
- Sample Tutorial 2 shows you how to build a new XPage web application from scratch, creating the functionality of the Document Library while incorporating best practices such as using the OneUI theme at the foundation of your application.
