IBM ConnectED 2015 – Day Three Questions

Day 3 in Orlando started early – pre first cup of coffee for some of my team.  I joined <a href=”https://twitter.com/russodesigns”>Joe Russo</a>, <a href=”https://twitter.com/miguelestrada”>Miguel Estrada</a>, <a href=”https://twitter.com/tx_kg”>Kirti Gani</a> and <a href=”https://twitter.com/vijfrancis”>Vijay Francis</a> at the IBM Connections Developers ChalkTalk.

The ChalkTalk was very well attended for 7:00 AM on the last day of the conference – partners, customers and developers came with questions, comments and thoughts.

The ChalkTalk had a wide range of questions ranging from User Interface, to tapping IBM Developers, to chats, to OSGI plugins and to our website – <a href=”https://developer.ibm.com/social”>IBM Connections Developers</a>.

After the ChalkTalk, I demoed to a customer the <a href=”https://greenhouse.lotus.com/sbt/SBTPlayground.nsf/Explorer.xsp#”>API Explorer</a> and she had a simple request for a quick curl command to easily see an operational command.  It’s a fair point, and we are considering it for the <a href=”https://github.com/OpenNTF/SocialSDK”>Social SDK</a>.

In Between the ChalkTalk and <a href=”http://www-01.ibm.com/software/collaboration/events/connected/techlabs.html”>Meet the Developers</a>, I answered a few question.

Question:
I have an SBTSDK question.  How do I get the data out of a JsonJavaArray, how do I use it?
Answer:
You can always browse github and search for the java source you’re interested in and find the code.
JsonJavaArray is java lang iteratable.
JsonJavaArray jja = …
for(JsonJavaObject jsonObject : jja){
… process the object …
}

Question:
I ran into an issue with Maven/Liberty and the photosharing app. What can I do to fix?
Answer:
If the user starts the web app on Liberty, and receives the following error in the Liberty Console. SBTFilter class not found.

Then the user should switch to the Error Log in the Eclipse J2EE perspective

Expand the folloing error, click on class path

Click Ctrl + 1 (Quick Fix)

Question:
I have a wiki that I am using via API.  How do I tell if the user has edit capability?
Answer:
The docs describe this well.  The doc uses an enclosure link that rel = edit if the users has the ability to comment or post.

I also helped a partner debug an OAuth Provider issue.  If I get a lesson learned, I’ll post a blog for you all.

I attended the Ask the Developers and the Product Managers. I sat in the front row waiting for an AppDev question that needed my expertise (after looking at the people on the stage that need was near zero).  Did you expect anything less from that session?  I did not.  It was also cool to see <a href=”https://twitter.com/johnpag”>Pags</a> called up to the stage to answer cool domino questions.

From “Ask The”  I went with Miguel to Social File Sharing presentation and copresented with Miguel on our experimental Bluemix service.  More information to come on the developer.ibm.com/social site.
