Julian have a fantastic conversation with Adam Gartenberg -- IBM/Lotus
Offering Manager for Real-time and Team Collaboration -- regarding the

details to list them all here in the show notes (you'll just have to listen
to the podcast ;-), but here are some of the topics we touched on:
shared some great details with us, so make sure you listen to the whole
thing. Also, here are a few links related to what we discussed:
course the OpenNTF update with John

|In Episode 21 Julian talks about his excellent
project. OpenLog provides
a common error and event logging framework for all of your IBM Lotus Notes
applications. Julian discusses how to set up OpenLog, how to configure
it, how to add OpenLog to your existing databases, how to configure notifications
and much more. No longer will you have to write to the Notes log file,
the console or to an agent log database. |
OpenLog provides you with a single database to collect all of the errors
occurring in your code. We know (and hear) what you're saying so don't
even say that your code is perfect and has no errors - yeah right! Only
Bruce writes perfect code - NOT.
