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.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
