I'm on 8.5.3 FP2, using the ExtLib that's part of the 8.5.3 FP2 build, and am having no end of problems. I'm trying to develop for XPiNC, but am even having issues when previewing an XPage in browsers.
- Design changes aren't being reflected. I gave up using custom controls 'cause those changes never showed up. Even if all code is on 1 XPage, design changes are being ignored. I've shut down DDE, my Notes client, my browser, my pc, and still the old XPage is lingering.
- If I copy/paste from 1 XPage to another via the Source Pane, anything from the ExtLib starts to trigger errors (like The prefix "xe" for element "xe:dialog" is not bound), and loses its design like below:
- I get random Error 404 or Error 500 pages periodically whenever I make changes to the XPage design.
Cleaning project, refreshing project, shutting DDE, browsers, client, etc. do not seem to get rid of the cached design.
I know this issue has been reported here before:
This is causing me to be the least productive developer on the continent!
Do I have to drop down to 8.5.2 to get back to a stable DDE/XPages environment? Any other suggestions? Desperation is setting in ...
