XPages 2.0

Thanks to TLCC and TeamStudio I had a chance last week to see the latest version of Pete Janzen’s update on the latest plans for future enhancements to XPages. While we have all have probably been frustrated in the delays in getting the next version of Domino (9.0.2) to market Pete and the XPages development team have been busy putting together what is now a compelling list of new features for XPages. I would be bold enough to call this XPages 2.0, IBM are labelling it as App.Next – The Future of Domino Application Development.

In short, when the next version of Domino is released containing these features, XPages developers are going to have out-of-the-box access to a wide range of modern web development tools. This includes:-

  1. jQuery
  2. Bootstrap (including Select2 and Glyphicons)
  3. Three new responsive controls – Carouse, NavBar, an Dashboard
  4. Enhanced support for Relational databases including thread pooling and a new JDBC plugin
  5. Support for document encryption and signatures

jQuery and Bootstrap are probably the biggest stories in Web Development so their inclusion as an official part of XPages is HUGE. The good news is that a number of these features are already available via OpenNTF. There inclusion in an official Domino release will make important Web development capabilities available to a much larger audience of XPages developers.
