Format: Paperback
Yes, you read that right: every Domino administrator should read the new XPages Portable Command Guide. Developers should too, but from what I've read so far, I feel it's more crucial that admins pick up a copy of this book.

Let's assume that you're a diligent administrator. You've known for maybe a decade now (or more) how best to configure an end user's Notes client installation. You can set up an efficient replication and mail routing topology in your sleep. You've even kept current, so you now know all the best practices for configuring DAOS and Traveler. Congratulations! You're a top notch email administrator.

But if I'm your Notes developer, and I need you to deploy a new XPage application, do you know what questions to ask me in order to ensure that the correct persistence settings are enabled in the application's xsp.properties file? Do you know what heap size should be set in the server's INI to provide a solid balance between performance and scalability? It's fantastic that you know exactly how to support every last detail of an email environment, but do you know how to support applications?

If you don't, or you're not sure, or even if you think you're sure, buy this book. Sorry for the blunt honesty, but I haven't met a single Domino administrator who could instinctively tell me what the xsp.persistence.mode setting should be, based on whether the users want the application to be fast, scale to massive amounts of concurrent users, or provide a healthy compromise between the two. If, at a minimum, you can't answer that question without even stopping to think, and you administer production Domino servers running 8.5, or ever plan to, you need this book.

Hint: the answer is on page 24.

Format: Paperback
IBM Press is filling a much-needed gap that has been voiced by many Administrators and Developers working with IBM Collaborative Solutions (IBM Lotus Notes Domino) by publishing multiple books on XPages application development, deployment, and administration. The latest of these publications, XPages Portable Command Guide: A Compact Resource to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language, is designed to cover more of "the things you need to know when running XPage-based applications in production" vs. "here's how to develop an application with XPages".

IBM Press also hit various new media outlets to get the word out about this book, including podcasts, a Meet the Authors YouTube Video, and blogs.

XPages Portable Command Guide: Meet the Authors

Was all of this hard work to expose the latest IBM Press XPages imprint worth it?

Mastering XPages: A Step-by-Step Guide to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language is mentioned by this book several times as the most authoritative resource for learning and... mastering XPages, and if you don't own that book I highly recommend purchasing it first.

The Portable Command Guide is an excellent companion to Mastering XPages, and the information in these pages are invaluable. It doesn't duplicate the information found in Mastering XPages (outside of reviewing some of the very basic fundamentals and possibly some of the most common features/functions).

To put it simply, the XPages Portable Command Guide is the book that you'll be more apt to pack into your laptop bag, where Mastering XPages will sit on your desk.

This book is packed with extra information that lies under the covers you will not find anywhere else. The authors do a great job explaining why things are the way they are when they present solutions and configuration settings. The authors do a great job priming you before they start sharing the guts of the topic.

I have all three XPages books now, and you really need them in your hands to be successful coming up to speed with XPAGES.

First 3 chapters are a must for the Domino Administrator and very useful for the Developer the rest is full of the AH HAH! moments that I wish I had in the beginning of my XPage career. This is a must have book in your library if you work in XPages at any level.
