Sametime crash on Windows 2003 Server due to out of disk space...

Got a very interesting call from a customer this morning. Their Sametime server had crashed and was unable to start due to lack of free disk space on the system drive. The problem was that the drive had 14 GB free space the other day when I installed the server so something had to be amiss...

Domino server certificate expires after 2 years rather than after 100 years

There has been a bug when doing a "First server" setup on Domino 6.x where the server was only certified for 2 years rather than the normal 100 years. I read about this in the Lotus Domino Support RSS feed some time back but we didn't have any customers with the problem - until now.

LotusScript.doc is being well received

Based on the feedback I have received in regards to the annoucement of LotusScript.doc I think it is safe to say that this is a tool developers has been missing. I have received a number of e-mails from people who would like to enroll as "beta-testers" so that's very nice.

I plan to start the beta-program on Monday and then target a release to the community the coming week (15 August). I just need to finish up the user documentation before sending the application to the beta-testers.

Stay tuned...

Introducing LotusScript.doc

This blog post is to introduce LotusScript.doc to the Notes developer community. LotusScript.doc is a tool I wrote that aims to be for LotusScript what javadoc is for Java.

Why LotusScript.doc?
Notes applications are very hard and time consuming to document. When we think about documenting Notes applications we normally only document the actual application (the user manual) since there isn't a standard way of documenting the LotusScript code - until now...

LotusScript.doc is a Notes application you can use to generate HTML documentation for LotusScript code in Notes databases. The produced format is the same as for javadoc.

To find out more head over to the project website at www.lsdoc.org.

JDBC and Class.forName
