I have released a stability fix for my utility Client Killer now version 3.1 to help you kill the Notes Client if it hangs. You can also clean the log files after you have killed it, I have seen jvm dumps of 2GB in the log folders. If you’re not downloaded it yet get it here –> Client Killer
My other tools designer memory or it should be names Client memory helps you to configure the memory parameters of eclipse in the client. Did you know that the memory configuration is cleared if you install a fixpack? But if you have my tool in autostart it will fix this automatically. Check the Extras folder for the preconfigured icons. Get Designer memory utility here —> Designer memory
If you have a improvement suggestions or an idea for a new utility, add a comment or send it to me thru contact.
I often have quite large databases at customers and in the QNova development phases with lots of design elements. You look at a button and find that and agent is used or a function is called in a script library, you switch to the agents view and starts to look inside the view for the agent by scrolling down.
But there is a better and faster way to find what you are looking for, Designer filter.
The filter is in all design element views so it’s not a XPage only feature.
The great thing about this is that it’s lightning fast and you could write parts of name and it doesn’t need to be in the beginning of the name.
A great feature that needs to have some light on it. It’ helps me be more productive everyday!
Google breaks with Webkit and starts a competitor rendering engine Blink and the main reason is that they don’t want to be controlled by Apple what goes into the engine or not. Opera also annouced they will start using this engine. I think this started when Apple did throw out Google from IOS 6, now they throw out Apple from a free ride to browser rendering.
Checkout the developer Q&A
Another big news today was the that Firefox and Samsung is developing their own nextgen rendering engine Servo. Samsung announced earlier that they are going to switch focus from Android to their own smartphone OS Bada, I think that will be difficult for Samsung, look at HP and Web OS.
Facebook also announced an Android facebook takeover application that will take over your phone with Home. It will replace homescreen, dialer and messaging app in your android phone with Facebook Home.
Check out my two post last year regarding a SSJS Debugger –> Link
Conditional breakpoints was one of the suggestions that was voted up as a function in the debugger and we get that. I don’t know if someone at IBM did read this and the feature is there because of the post but I like to think so 😉
If you have any great tip regarding debugging in Designer 9 please feel free to comment.
