Getting data from an HTTPS site in backend using XPages

If you want to connect to an SSL protected site and get information it could be an webpage or a webservice if you are using xpages and the certifier isn’t already in Domino you need to import the certificates.

Open up the Domino Name and adress book navigate to Security -> Certificates

When you are in this view the action menu will have a new option

Select these and import each of the certificates that you have.

When they are imported you need to create a Cross certificate.

Go in to each one of the newly imported certificates and in the actions meny you will have create cross certificate create a cross certificate against the server. Make sure to change from Local to the server in registration server. When you are done.

Restart task HTTP on the server console and you should be able to connect.

If it’s an old Java agent this doesn’t work then you need to import the certificate in the keystore in the jvm.
If you are doing this let me know and I assist you.


Wild click events on my XPage

Today I had a strange issue on an XPage application I was working on I it didn’t matter where I clicked
my button on the form got clicked. Very strange. First thing I started to look for was if I had some onClick event that was bind wrong. Nope that wasn’t the case.

Then I went over to the client side and thought I could find what event listener that was making the call but this doesn’t say anything to me.


Then I started to look at the XSP.Attachevents at the bottom of the xpage

But if you have a large xpage and 20 events attached to it, it’s hard to find what is what. The my suggestion is give you components real names. And it was then I found the problem.
Can you spot the difference

The working client side code
his this the XPage with the faulty code


on’t scroll more spoiler alert










Yes, the partial event listener is bound to an object that doesn’t exist view:_id1:_id5
why you might ask, I found that this happens if a button don’t have a name and is set to do a partial refresh.


Then you will get that you will click the button where every you click on the xpage. Hopefully fixed in a future release with an error or a correctly generated id.

IBM Notes Domino 9.01 XPages Fixlist

If you look in the IBM Fixlist there are several interesting fixes in 9.01

One of them is that we can close an XPage thu code in the Notes client.

Not a big deal you might think but it is when adding xpage functionallity to “old” design notes applications.

If you have another fix that I’ve missed feel free to comment. Ofcourse all fixes might not end up in the release but we hope.

And also don’t miss the
