Don't fall asleep using Relational Databases: Using Hibernate with XPages
Toby Samples
Friday, August 29th, 2014 at 11:30 AM - Gerald Ford room

Domino is THE all-purpose Application Server that fits all of your needs even if those needs involve relational databases. Hibernate is an object-relational mapping library for Java and can be used with XPages. The framework can help you easily combine the relational databases that you have with the secure, flexible environment you already know and love. In this session I will demonstrate that with a little setup Hibernate allows you to treat records in a relational database in a similar manner as Domino documents in a Domino Database. You will learn how to setup Hibernate on Domino, setup eclipse to use Hibernate tools, and build an XPages application that is bound directly to your Relational Database.

Java versus Javascript: There really is no competition
Andrew Barickman
Wendesday, August 27th, 2014 at 5 PM - Gerald Ford room

Should you use Java or JavaScript to write XPages applications? The answer is yes. XPages facilitates creating great applications written almost entirely in Java and written almost entirely in JavaScript. There are no right or wrong answers, only circumstances and ramifications. The determining factors as what is best for your development team are many and complex. In this presentation Andrew will seek to dispel the myth that there is even a competition. The answer should always be - it depends. Come and see the session and make your own mind up.

The Mobile Distruption - Why XPages Development is targeting Mobile First
John Head and Matt Engstrom, IBM
Thursday, August 28th, 2014 at 11 AM - Grand View room

Over the next five years, enterprise apps will increasingly be built for mobile as the target platform. This session will cover the business reasons why you need to focus on the mobile experience, from both the IBM and a business partner perspective. With mobile, social, cloud and big data being the top priorities of most CxOs worldwide, we will look at how XPages can play a key role in your application strategy. We will guide you on how XPages can fit into your MEAP (Mobile Enterprise Application Platform) strategy, what you can do today to position yourself for success and demonstrate real world examples of why XPages is a smart choice.

Write once, run anywhere - Angular.js in XPages
Mark Roden
Friday, August 29th 2014 at 3 PM - Imperial room

The business requirement to surface functionality from one application inside of another has long existed and is often difficult to implement. There has always been a gulf between displaying data and creating a functional application. Mark will demonstrate how the power of building a solution based on Angular.js allows an application to be "moved" from Domino to another platform easily and with the bare minimum of code re-write. Taking "Write once, use anywhere" in the literal sense, you will see how to make Domino applications running natively inside of other platforms. Client side frameworks such as Angular.js are the future of web development - come and see it in action.

Look forward to seeing everyone in Grand Rapids!
