Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.


Update the Java API

Current API is very dated and a chore to work with. OpenNTF Domino API addresses many issues but would be nice if this was part of Domino out of the box.

    Can you be more specific on what features you would like to have addressed in the JavaAPI ?

    Number one issue for me is dealing with Vectors. Java developers working with Domino tend to view this as a major lack of commitment/support to the product. Having new methods that return modern collection classes such as ArrayList would be a much needed improvement.

     

    For other issues please see what OpenNTF Domino API addresses: https://oda.openntf.org/main.nsf/project.xsp?r=project/OpenNTF%20Domino%20API

    The way you do iterations in the current API is cumbersome, it should be more like standard java iterations work. Also get rid of recycle()... 
    Both things are already solved in ODA.

    The new API should be available for both XPAGES as Java Agents.
