by Keith McCormick | October 2013 | Cookbooks Enterprise Articles

In this article, Keith McCormick co-author of IBM SPSS Modeler Cookbook expresses pride in the fact that as a group of authors (Dean Abbott, Meta S. Brown, Tom Khabaza, and Scott R. Mutchler) that they have often provided the unexpected, the innovative, and boundary testing aspects of using Modeler everyday. Even the reviewers played a critical role in this. Two of the reviewers, Terry Taerum and Jesus Salcedo, made improvements to recipes and supplemented the recipes in the final days of the review process. All of the reviewers played a role in making the collection more innovative. Colin Shearer kindly observed in his Foreword:

“The author of this book are among the very best of these exponents, gurus who, in their brilliant and imaginative use of the tool, have pushed back the boundaries of applied analytics. By reading this article, you are learning from practitioners who have helped define the state of the art”

IBM Lotus Domino: Exploring View Options for the Web

by Richard G. Ellis | May 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

Views serve as indexes to documents in a database. Virtually all Domino applications that contain composed documents also contain one or more views that facilitate locating and re-opening previously saved documents. Some views are intended for users, and some views are intended to be used only by internal processes or by formulas to look up values. Of course, you can use the same view for both users and lookups, but doing so can be problematic.

Topics in this article by Richard G. Ellis, author of IBM Lotus Domino: Classic Web Application Development Techniques, include the following:

  • Understanding view Action buttons
  • Use Domino-generated default views
  • Use the "Treat view contents as HTML" option
  • Use the View Applet (with caution)

IBM Lotus Domino: Creating Action Buttons and Adding Style to Views

by Richard G. Ellis | May 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

Views serve as indexes to documents in a database. Virtually all Domino applications that contain composed documents also contain one or more views that facilitate locating and re-opening previously saved documents. Some views are intended for users, and some views are intended to be used only by internal processes or by formulas to look up values. Of course, you can use the same view for both users and lookups, but doing so can be problematic.

In the previous article by Richard G. Ellis, author of IBM Lotus Domino: Classic Web Application Development Techniques, we explored various view options for the web.

View templates are forms that can accommodate buttons, fields, and computed text as needed to enhance your views. Most views include a few Action buttons, so this article offers suggestions about including buttons on view templates. We will also take a look at adding style to views, opening documents in a separate window, and adding view scrollbars dynamically.

IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager: Exploring Object Store-level Items

by William J. Carpenter | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Content Management

The previous article dealt with Exploring Domain-level items. Let's turn our attention now to the Object Store and things inside it. Since an Object Store is a repository, things that reside inside an Object Store are called repository objects. It's a slightly technical point, but the Object Store itself is not a repository object.

In this article by William J. Carpenter, author of Getting Started with IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager, we'll cover:

  • A discussion of an Object Store and what's in it
  • An example of creating a custom class and adding custom properties to it

IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager: End User Tools and Tasks

by William J. Carpenter | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM Content Management

Our primary motivation is to show concepts more than it is to present a tutorial for particular applications.

This article by William J. Carpenter, author of Getting Started with IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager, covers the following topics:

  • An overview of the XT application
  • Browsing and related operations
  • XT entry templates
  • Workflow interactions
  • Document versioning
  • Properties and security manipulation
  • XT search interfaces

IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager: Administrative Tools and Tasks

by William J. Carpenter | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Content Management

Although we will be using FileNet Enterprise Manager (FEM) to illustrate most of the features, remember that these are really features of the Content Engine (CE) itself. As such, they are sometimes available in other tools and always available via the CE APIs. The point is not to show how to operate FEM itself, but to illustrate Content Manager (CM) features. Because FEM is an administrator's tool, we'll concentrate mostly on administrative concepts and tasks.

In this article by William J. Carpenter, author of Getting Started with IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager, we'll cover:

  • A discussion of the P8 Domain and what's in it
  • How to use topology levels to configure your environment
  • A discussion of the objects that reside directly within a Domain
