Will Domino 10 fix this?

Wed 21 Mar 2018, 01:59 PM

I am excited that so many customers and partners are excited about Notes/Domino 10 and all that it can do. Even aside from the new features (which sound awesome), the excitement will get some reluctant companies spending on Notes/Domino again, and what infrastructure wouldn't be helped by an occasional revisit.
But my guess is that the solutions and features will not sufficiently address a nagging problem (which I most conveniently have a solution to). It may be that IBM/HCL will pour the resources in to properly convert Notes rich text to HTML/MIME, given that it is used at the very least in a) email, b) web rendering, c) REST services that deliver content, d) mobile apps, e) Traveler/Verse, f) etc.
Let's look at what AppsFidelity can do for example, what it has been able to do for many years while IBM has not been pouring resources in.
A table in the Notes client
Table in Notes client
Table rendered by the Domino 9.0.1 web server
Table rendered badly by Domino 9.0.1
Table rendered by the Domino 9.0.1 web server using AppsFidelity (no code changes or agents)
Table rendered well by AppsFidelity
See any difference? All this is done with an extension manager plugin which doesn't need to touch the design. It works with REST, with  web browser, with  XPages, with mobile apps. So, if IBM/HCL isn't going to pour the resources in to do this properly, you should know that you can fix it by getting a license to AppsFidelity. You can do it today, just as you could have done it a year ago or even ten years ago. Sure, it has improved since it was a Beacon Award runner up in 2006, but it has consistently been better than the Domino web engine. I'm betting it still will be in Domino 10.
Makes you wonder why IBM and HCL don't know about it.  
Try AppsFidelity yourself. Request an evaluation license today.
