Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

For those who will be in Austin, TX next week for MWLUG, I'm looking forward to seeing you all. I also wanted to invite you to warm up (in Austin in August, who am I kidding?) for the closing session by hearing my talk in at 3pm Friday in Ballroom D.
 
Data Mining in the Mountains of Rich Text and Beyond 
Whether your company is staying with Notes/Domino, moving to only Domino and a mobile/web/XPages strategy, or moving away from Notes/Domino entirely, chances are you have vast mountains of content in databases created over many years. Accessing the simple data can be done in a number of ways, but data mining in the rich text can be more of a challenge. In this session, I discuss the myriad types of rich text and show various ways they can be valuable. There will be brief demos of techniques for extracting rich text, but the focus will be on how to use the data that is there for both analytical and archival purposes.
 
While we talk about unstructured data in Notes databases, we all know that there is a lot of structure built in by custom, policies or process. I will talk about how to take advantage of this structure, as well as how to tackle the really unstructured parts built into rich text. Data visualization will happen. Free beer will not happen unless you bring it.
 
See you there.

While it is fairly easy to integrate CKEditor into classic Domino designs, the actual results are not great. AppsFidelity can help here, just as it does in XPages. Try for yourself with an AppsFidelity evaluation. By the way, AppsFidelity is not just for applications where you might edit in both Notes and the web, or even for applications where you will ever edit the documents. We have customers who use AppsFidelity so that the documents will render on the web without any design changes or changes to the documents which may be untouchable after signing.

One line to export a Notes mail database to MBOX format with the high fidelity rendering engine in CoexLinks Fidelity, one of various formats supported. This feature will be available in CoexLinks Fidelity V4, due out shortly and a free upgrade to anyone currently on a maintenance plan. The best rendering in the business, and you can make it part of your business. We are open to arrangements with business partners who want to use this as part of migration and archiving products or services.
 
You can try CoexLinks for yourself by requesting an evaluation license. Anybody with an active evaluation when CoexLinks Fidelity V4 is released will get a new eval license and will also get a special discount if they choose to buy it. Current CoexLinks customers will also have a special discount available if they choose to purchase more licenses. CoexLinks Fidelity Export is part of the CoexLinks Fidelity product and will be licensed along with that product.
 
If you want to know more about CoexLinks Fidelity and even see how high fidelity makes a difference in your own email, visit the CoexLinks Fidelity demo page and try the Coexlinks Fidelity sample mailer to have samples sent to you.
 
Best viewed in HD. There is no audio for this, as it didn't seem necessary.

A first look at how you will be able to retrieve Domino data in a myriad of formats, but in this case in JSON. This is a simple demo of an HTML page that retrieves Notes data including rich text and uses it on the page. In this case, it retrieves JSON, but can also retrieve CSV data, HTML, EPUB, MHT and EML from a view, document or field, all using the high fidelity rendering and advanced data mining features of the AppsFidelity Render engine.
 
You can try AppsFidelity for yourself by requesting an evaluation license (oops, corrected). Anybody with an active evaluation when AppsFidelity 4 is released will get a new eval license for AppsFidelity Render and will also get a special discount if they choose to buy it. AppsFidelity Render is part of AppsFidelity, and is licensed along with it for the same price.
 
Best viewed in HD. Closed captions will be provided shortly., though the majority of the impact is visual.
 
 
 
The lines I added to my NOTES.INI to make this demo work are below. There are a couple of additional parameters to restrict exactly what can be done with a db, but the URL will only work with a db that is enabled by name, replica id or template.
 
extmgr_addins=AppsFidelityEdit32
AppsFidelityRenderEnabled=1
AppsFidelityRender1=<LSess12.nsf>

A customer wanted to know what it would take to enhance an XPages template with AppsFidelity so that the rich text content looked better on the web but also in Notes. They have lots of apps built on this same template. (I have changed one small point about the request to make it more generic.)
 
The answer in this case was, it would take five lines. Not code, but lines in the NOTES.INI on the servers where the apps lived.
 
 
1) A line to load AppsFidelity into a 32 bit Domino system (the appropriate software DLLs and license file are assumed to have been put in the Domino executable directory first)
 
extmgr_addins=AppsFidelityEdit32
 
 
2) A line to turn on AppsFidelity's XPage processing. Classic processing would take another line.
 
AppsFidelityXPagesEnabled=1
 
 
3) A line to allow all dbs with the "MegaMarketing43" template to use AppsFidelity (a single db could be specified as <dbname> or by replica as [repid])
 
AppsFidelityXPage1=Marketing43
 
 
4) A line to turn on processing when the "Research Policies" form is used
 
AppsFidelityXPage1Form1=Research Policies
 
 
5) A line to turn on processing specifically for the "Description" and "Justification" fields from the "Research Policies" form
 
AppsFidelityXPage1Fields1=Description,Justification
 
 
and that's it. Basically, you need one line per template, db or replica, and then two lines per form, though if the only rich text field on the form is "Body", you can skip the Fields line for that form. Of course, this not only allows rendering for viewing, but also editing on either the Notes client or web client.
