IBM XPages on Bluemix: Domino Hybrid Applications Setup For Use With IBM XPages For Bluemix Runtime


On October 27 the fifteenth release was published of the IBM Notes Domino 9.0.1 version of the XPages Extension Library (ExtLib) to OpenNTF. In the ReadMe file some details were already described on the new Bluemix capabilities for hybrid applications for both Domino Designer and the XPages runtime:
  • Additional Domino Designer Bluemix Preferences provided to support hybrid application production use cases
  • Domino Designer Bluemix tooling changes to support hybrid application production use cases
  • New Bluemix/Domino Designer environment variables introduced to aid in the support of hybrid application production use cases
  • Domino Hybrid Applications On Premises Setup
Today I saw the following Twitter message from Padraic Edwards.


In case you missed it, on IBM Bluemix Docs there is a lot of new information available for Hybrid applications:
  • Domino Hybrid Applications setup for use with IBM XPages for Bluemix runtime
  • Creating a server ID file for Hybrid Applications
  • Pushing your server ID to Bluemix using Domino Designer Bluemix Tooling and Preferences
  • Controlling IBM XPages for Bluemix application access for Domino Hybrid Applications
A hybrid application can be described as an XPages application in Bluemix that needs to be able to access Domino data stored outside its own immediate cloud environment.

  1. The key part is that you have to create a real server ID just for "dummy" purposes. It doesn't have to be the "real" server ID of your on prem server. IBM uses just the certifier part to authenticate to your on prem environment. Of course you have to set this server (ID) as trusted in your server's security settings to let the Bluemix server access it via NRPC (which is a key functionality here instead of using DAS)
