Swedish army changing email

The swedish armed forces decided to change to Lotus Notes in 2001 and the project was fully implemented in 2005. They have now decided to replace Lotus Notes / Domino with MS Exchange and one of the major reasons why they do this is because Lotus Notes doesn't support the new security classification that the new SAP system they will begin to use "Prio" require this.

The interesting part is that the company that implements "Prio" for the armed forces is IBM.
So the new SAP system that IBM is implementing will move the 20 000 users from Lotus Notes to Exchange.

Finding the end of the code segment in a java agent

My Del.icio.us Tags :)Image by halidCan! (: via Flickr

If you edit some java code in the new eclipse based Domino designer you can find the end of your code by placing the cursor behind the start { then the end } will get a box around it

But if you doubleclick at the start { you get this instead much easier to find the end or what do you think?

I think this is a great way to find the end.

Does the lack of fullscreen editing in the eclipse based designer annoy you

I hate it until I found a way around it, that I haven't seen this documented.

Just double click on the tab you want to edit in fullscreen.
And double click again you you want to go back.

Simple, yes

You never becomes surprised with Microsoft

Microsoft Word 2010 IconImage via Wikipedia

I was working with a strange error when working with Word from the Notes client today. I was opening a .Doc file (word 97 format) editing the file and pressed save. And when I reopened the wordfile I got an error that the textconverter mswrd632.wpc doesn't work.

Strange I thought. After some investigation I found out that, Word is actually saving docx file format within the .doc file despite the fact that the file was in word 97 format before.
And when I reopen the file Word is giving the problem because due to a security update one file extension can't contain another file format.

IBM please focus on integrating good richtext editors, the users want this!!

This is the fix for enable open of .doc files with .docx content

Run from agent list adds brackets to alias also

The Agents name in 8.5.1 becomes strange in if you have an alias in 8.5.1
it starts with a ( and ends with a bracket after the alias name.

In 8.5.2 Code drop 4 Beta this is fixed with a bracket around both the name and the alias.
But this will breaks your old applications if you have added agent names without brackets.

In 8.5.1 you could do a work around by creating the agent with brackets around the name
with the option "from action menu selection" to fix this.

I'm confident that IBM will solve this until we get a Gold release of 8.5.2.
