he “HCl Domino Volt“ brand passed away. Maybe to avoid the confsion with the new and fancy Volt Mx product, HCL had decided to rebranded to “HCL Domino Leap“. And it still getting more and more functionality. That point makes the product more “complete” and enlarge the number of use cases that you can resolve with HCL Domino Leap. At the beginning, HCL Domino Volt was a “NoCode” development product too focused (or limited) on data entry for not-too-complex applications. This meant that there were very few use cases that Volt was suited to. While it had a unique simplicity in creating responsive web forms, was a fact that the product lacked in data presentation options. It gradually improved and also increase in the integration options with our Domino applications. Not only from REST applications, but we would also have direct access to the data included in our Domino applications with the UniversalID or across a traditional Notes view.

The Importance of Reproducers

You may be a consumer for the code you think you’ve found a bug in. But you’re also a committer to other code. How many times has someone raised a problem where the code is actually working correctly? How many times has someone raised a problem but given insufficient evidence to know what’s going on, resulting in the famous “works for me”? And how many times was it PEBKAC (problem exists between keyboard and chair)?

Case insensitive deserialization

Case insensitive deserialization - Growing up in Windows with BASIC you learn case doesn't matter, so Color is the same as COLOR or cOLOR when it comes to variable names. Same applies to @Formula or item names in Notes documents. On the other side, Linux, Java, JavaScript and JSON are very much case sensitive. This poses a challenge when deserializing (handcrafted) JSON files.
