XPages in Beta 1 -- Not done enough yet for me to use in production

By Andrew Pollack on 07/02/2008 at 02:46 PM EDT

I've spent 20 or so hours working with XPages now against my local server and have come to the conclusion that as excited as I am about them - its going to have to wait. There are a number of features not yet complete, a few bugs, and a lack of help that leaves me looking in anticipation for a next beta.

It's frustrating that I can't talk about what isn't there that I'm expecting, because that would be breaking NDA. It's even more frustrating that I have to wait before I can go live with some of the things I've been working on.

Don't take this as a backing off on the value of XPages. These things are going to be the heart and soul of where we do development moving forward. For now though, with Beta 1, I'm going to have to hold off.

As someone who read your posting in the IBM design partner forum, I'm asking
myself, why you cannot write about this insight in detail, because everyone can
see "that" in the public beta.
There's not much content in the posting if you just say "I found something that
I don't like, but I cannot talk about it".
There's a difference between what I can talk about...By Andrew Pollack on 07/02/2008 at 04:04 PM EDT the DP forum (which is NOT public, but is private content site not to be
confused with the public beta forum) and what I can say in a public blog.

I can talk about what's missing (help, etc..) but I can't talk about what
features I know are coming that I have to wait for.

Sadly, its a fine line.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
