Mikkel and the Taking Notes Twitter podcast

Just listened to the latest Taking Notes podcast – I really love this series.

One thing that caught my attention was the comment about product documentation and samples. We are in the process of revamping the Notes and Lotus Expeditor documentation around composite applications so if you have any requests or feedback I would love to take that back to our documentation team. Anything, really. From spelling mistakes, typos, format, you name it.

I really like Mikkel's comment about the “business problem” and how to solve those. It reminds me of a book I reviewed a while back “The MFC Answer Book

Just the format alone of this book is priceless. The question-answer format makes it very easy to find things and makes a great quick reference with good examples.

New export function in RAD 7.5 rocks

Ok, I am not sure if this came from Eclipse 3.4 or this is something Rational added but I absolutely love it!

Now, I don't have to change all of the manifests to provide patches or export my plugins to a configured runtime. This is going to save so much time and get rid of a big headache.

What the feature does is automatically replace “.qualifier” with what you specify in the field to the right. I matched it to my Notes 8.5 install for the property broker plugin. Very cool.
