Two new interesting CLFAD:s in XPages today

I had some strange problems today in 8.5.2FP1 that resulted in error 500.

CFLAD0246: Exception and CFLAD0134E:

The error occurred when executing this line of code currentDocument.save()
Crap I thought some internal error inside the XPages engine. I was searching for the error and thought
perhaps I should see if the error still occurs in 8.5.3. Yes box it did but in 8.5.3, I got and more developer friendly error .

Could not save the document 18B1E NotesException: Vector must contain objects all of the same class

Aha I thought I have some fields that contains multi value so I started to search there and found that I had
an array that contained numbers but in one case JS added text to this array. That was the problerm in this case.

Perhaps if there were a list of the most common CFLADS and what causes the problem would be good to have!

So hurry and upgrade to 8.5.3 and perhaps you will also benefit from some more developer friendly errors. 

Select your web preview port

Before 8.5.3 local web preview often didn’t work for a number of reasons. Skype blocking port 80,

HTTP Server: Error – Unable to Bind port 80, port may be in use or user needs net_privaddr error

Or some other problem. Now your problems is solved, just open preference -> Domino Designer and change the port to a higher port i.e. 5000.

 

8.5.3 is live on my work machine

I’ve installed 8.5.3 on My work machine.
So far everything works great. Need to really get time to try out all the new features sorting of ft results, running web querysave agents and the PostScript event (this name is really funny and unfortunately it didn’t make it to the Gold Release 🙁  ).
There are so many new functions in 8.5.3 great work IBM getting this out. I’m looking forward to start using this in production.

No need for MS Office anymore with 8.5.3

>If the gold version of Lotus Notes 8.5.3 has Symphony 3.0 as the beta releases has then

The need to Microsoft Office on company pc is almost 0%
Symphony 3 release note
The new support for VBA script is the key enhancement that will make the transition from Ms Office to Symphony easier. Why pay alot for MS Office when you can use Symphony for free??
