    Sven Hasselbach has created an optimized version of the XSP.partialRefreshPost() method.

But his version does not include support for running server-side actions because the the form fields included in the POST doesn't include the server-side event handler. So I have created an optimized version of his optimized version that supports this My versions adds a 'submitid' parameter that should point to the id of the event handler that you want to execute on the server.

  • The URL Mess

    Sam Ruby
    16 Sep 2014 | 11:49 am
    tl;dr: shipping is a feature; getting the URL feature well-defined should not block HTML5 given the nature of the HTML5 reference to the URL spec. This is a subject desperately in need of an elevator pitch.  From my  perspective, here are the three top things that need to be understood: 1) From an HTML5 specification point of view, there is no technical difference between any recent snapshot of the WHATWG specification and anything that the WebApps Working group publishes in the upcoming weeks. 2) The URL spec (from either source, per above it doesn’t matter) is as backwards compatible to…

    New laptop for work: MBP 15.4/2.6/16GB/1TBFlash.  First time I ever went the Apple route.  I did so as I figured with those specs, I could run multiple operating systems simultaneously.  So far, so good.  I’m using VirtualBox to do so. Notes: First, Mac OS X 10.9.  My biggest problem with previous versions of this operating system is that they always appeared to me to be fairly hostile to installing open source scripting languages and tools.  For example, each time I updated my Rails book, I would update the instructions on how to install the necessary software.  This now appears to…

    Today, I got a pull request from Ryan Grove to make nokogumbo work on Ruby 2.1 and add Travis support.  Very cool.  I was surprised how easy it was to set up. A few hours later I got ruby2js to work on Ruby 2.0 and 2.1 and added Travis support.  Wunderbar worked right out of the box.
  • Frameworks as Stepping Stones

    Sam Ruby

    Joe Gregorio: But something else has happened over the past ten years; browsers got better. Their support for standards improved, and now there are evergreen browsers: automatically updating browsers, each version more capable and standards compliant than the last. With newer standards like HTML Imports, Object.observe, Promises, and HTML Templates I think it’s time to rethink the model of JS frameworks. There’s no need to invent yet another way to do something, just use HTML+CSS+JS. I’m curious as to where Joe believes that these features came from.  For example, promises were first…

  • Removing thumbnails from JPEG images

    Klaus Johannes Rusch
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    JPEG images downloaded from a digital camera often contain thumbnails in the EXIF metadata, which Windows 7 appears to use for the thumbnails shown in folders.Unfortunately not every image editor also updates the thumbnails. As a result, changes to images are only visible on the full image, not on the thumbnail preview.That's where the marvelous ExifTool library and command-line application by Phil Harvey come into play. This one-liner removes the thumbnail image and related size information, and sets the file modification timestamp to the capture timestamp:exiftool -if…

    Thirty years ago, on July 2, 1984, I started my first summer job in the accounting department of Gebrüder Ulmer, a hardware retailer and wholesale firm.The little I remember from those days are fixed working hours from 8–12 and 14–18, with sufficient time for a lunch break at home, handwritten memos, a plethora of documents arriving every few hours that needed to be stamped, sorted, numbered, processed and forwarded to the next department or stored in the archive, and the mix of historic and then-modern business machines.My responsibilities were mostly sorting and archiving documents,…

    When the World Wide Web was created 25 years ago few people probably realized how much change this would bring, not only to the academic community where this started but to the world at large.Twenty years ago, IBM published the first homepage on www.ibm.com. The initial site on May 24, 1994 had only a few pages of content and an audio greeting by then-CEO and Chairman Lou Gerstner. (That was the time when most homepages greeted visitors with “Welcome to the Internet”.) Among the things Gerstner said, in retrospective the most important statement was “We are committed to the Internet,…

    Over the course of the last six months it’s been quite an interesting experience, to say the least, being asked, on a rather frequent basis, why did I leave big corporate life at IBM, specially, with the last round of dream jobs, to instead build my own business into the unknown with that inherent flair of uncertainty, specially, given the current times we are living in, and still have no regrets about moving on into that next adventure, whatever that may well be like. Well, after all of that time I guess I am now ready and have a proper answer that I can go by with and that pretty much…

    A couple of months back you would remember how I put together a blog post over here on an upcoming business trip I was about to embark on heading to Prague, by mid-June, to speak a couple of times at the Social Connections VI event (#soccnx). A few of you have asked me over the course of time whether there were some recordings made available of the different presentations and all along I mentioned that they would become accessible online, eventually, since they were all recorded live, while we were there. It was just a matter of time, and a bunch of hard work to make it happen. And lo and…
  • Active Listening – When Shutting Up Matters

    Luis Suarez
    22 Aug 2014 | 12:56 pm
    There is a lot that the business world can learn from NGOs in general. And vice versa, I am sure. We all know that. But if there is anything that I have learned just recently that certainly has stroked a chord with me in terms of what would be rather critical and paramount for enterprises (whatever the size) to, finally, understand and embrace in equal terms, is to stop being both rather patronising or paternalistic and, instead, just shut up and listen. After all,  “[…] In economic development, if people do not wish to be helped, leave them alone”. Why? Well, it’s all about respect,…

I guess it’s been far too long, so when my good friend Cecil Dijoux launched a meme invitation to a group of us around #LeadWithRespect : a Challenge for 21st Century Management, based on a recent blog post he published upon embarking himself on reading the book “Lead With Respect” by Freddy and Michael Ballé (Already got my Kindle copy, by the way, although I haven’t gotten started with it just yet…), I just couldn’t help diving in and see where it would take us all…

  • Creating nginx configurations for Domino SSL

    Stephan H Wissel
    20 Sep 2014 | 10:26 am
    Websites need to be secure, so the SHA-1 cipher is coming to an end. Despite best efforts, Domino is stuck with this outdated Cipher. While you can, on Windows, hide Domino behind IHS, I find nginx easier to tame. Jesse explains how to configure nginx as the Domino proxy. So all is good, expecially since he also covered High availability. But when you have a lot of sites, that's a lot of typing (and copy & paste from the Internet site documents). Mustache to the rescue! I've written about Mustache before and it suits the task quite nicely: Create one well working sample configuration…

    SingTel makes big claims about the beauty of their fibre offering. I do not experience the claimed benefits. So I'm starting to track down what is happening. Interestingly when you visit SpeedTest, it shows fantastic results. I smell rat. So I ran a test with Pocketinet in Walla Walla, WA. SpeedTest claims a 5ms ping response, but when I, immediate before or after such a test, issue a ping -c5 www.pocketinet.com I get results rather in the range of 200-230ms.

    When you learn cooking, there are a few basic skills that need to be in place before you can get started: cutting, measuring, stiring and understanding of temperature's impact on food items. These skills are independent from what you want to cook: western, Chinese, Indian, Korean or Space Food. The same applies to software development. Interestingly we try to delegate these skills to ui designers, architects, project managers analyst or infrastructure owners. To be a good developer, you don't need to excel in all of those skills, but at least develop a sound understanding of the problem…
  • Flow, Rules, Complexity and Simplicity in Workflow

    Stephan H Wissel
    3 Sep 2014 | 2:55 am
    When I make the claim "Most workflows are simple", in return I'm hit with bewildered looks and the assertion: "No, ours are quite complex". My little provocation is quite deliberate, since it serves as an opening gambit to discuss the relation between flow, rules and lookups. All workflows begin rather simple. I'll take a travel approval workflow as a sample (resemblance of workflows of existing companies would be pure coincidence). The explanation is simple: "You request approval from management, finance and compliance. When all say OK, you are good to go". Translating them into a flow…
  • Rethinking the MimeDocument data source

    1 Sep 2014 | 9:09 am
    Tim (we miss you) and Jesse had the idea to store beans in Mime documents, which became an OpenNTF project. I love that idea and was musing how to make it more "domino like". In its binary format, a serialized bean can't be used for showing view data, nor can one be sure that it can be transported or deserialized other than through the same class version as the creator (this is why Serialized wants to have a serialid). With a little extra work, that becomes actually quite easy: Enter JAXB. Serializing a bean to XML (I hear howling from the JSON camp) allows for a number of interesting…

    I’ve long been interested in the impact of digital technologies on the media industry.  While all industries are subject to the forces of creative destruction, media is one of the most affected.  Everything seems to be changing at once, from the way content is produced and delivered, to the sources of revenue and profits.  It seems as if, - to borrow Marc Andreessen’s words - digital technologies are eating the media world. Studying such dramatic changes helps me better appreciate the transitions our economy is going through.  Moreover, unlike other…

Customer self-service is my preferred candidate for the killer-app of the early days of the Web.  These kinds of apps were relatively easy to implement, yet so useful that they helped convince companies that the Web…
