One of the great things about Notes and Domino has been the iterative growth of features. Well, that was true until about 4 years ago. Lately, a lot has been said about IBM's poor performance in keeping Domino's security stack up to date:
Web sites such as GMail, Facebook, FeedBurner and most other service oriented sites offer users the ability to stay "logged in" to their site using some type of cookie. Idea Jam would like to use this type of authentication out of the box for Idea Jam and can't without building ...
(I droped mentioning xhtml after reading Stan Rogers comment).
Bob Balaban has mentioned on his blog that there might be some ideas to modernize the Domino HTTP engine for a later release.
I think this is getting more and more important for different reasons:
- we now have ...
It happens too often. I come upon a server that the customer has called in as being unstable while running the Web server. I come in, and
the domlog is huge. I mean lots of gigabytes of data.
The domlog is unused. That's mostly because it can't be opened, so much data's ...
while it's possible to use domcfg.nsf to map some types of http errors to special forms in the domcfg.nsf database the level of control it provides is not great and relies on the Domino administrator to work with the designer to edit that particular database and create the mappings etc....
Attempts by people or bots to find vulnerabilities by hacking at HTTP often manifests as invalid URLs.

Instead of just showing the username (a recent addition since about 8.0), the IP address and/or remote host should be displayed.
I encounter very often issues that users can not download bigger (>70MB) files which are stored as attachments into richtext fields via HTTP. I had to install FileZilla FTP server which supports download continue control, when the previous attempt was interrupted. This might need also that Domino starts to support ...
I'd really like to be able to send a file attachment as a response without a redirect (since I'm creating the file in memory, I don't want to save it and then purge it at some later date).
It would be great if I could set the DOCTYPE for all pages generated for a given database. It needs to be able to be set at the application level because different applications could use different DOCTYPEs. The setting would work for xPages, Forms, Pages, and Agents.
This setting could ...
I like to use WEBDAV on Domino to publish simple websites. Some tools I use, generate .html pages that are called with url-parms, like:
Trying to open this on domino creates an Error 500.
Rearranging the link to:
The above of course works on ...
As far as I know, keyring files are not supported by other powerful web servers on the market. Even Websphere group is not using and supporting this file format.
I'd like to know if there is a clear advantage of SSL keyring files. If not, it should be replaced ...
Currently there is no way to force all http session-authenticated users to re-login. I think restarting the server works but that is brutal. Restarting http doesn't do the trick because session cookies remain valid.
