IBM XPages for Bluemix Now Generally Available!

Share this post:

xpages runtime We are excited to announce that today the IBM XPages Runtime is generally available on IBM Bluemix. This is great news for the IBM Notes and Domino community because it means developers can now use the runtime to build cloud-based applications for a real-world production environment.

According to a survey by Evans Data Corporation, more than 85% of development projects take longer than three months to complete. XPages speeds up time to value for line-of-business applications:

  • XPages gives developers a library of over 100 XPages controls to build applications
  • XPages applications can be enhanced with other built-in tools such as Bootstrap, Dojo and jQuery
  • By using the XPages runtime with an IBM Domino server, developers can also make use of directory services, messaging capabilities and the security model of the Domino platform to rapidly develop and deploy their applications.

With these built-in services, developers can concentrate on process flow, while building a modern user experience for their clients.

Having the XPages Runtime on Bluemix provides XPages developers with a large scale standards-based platform as a service (PaaS). Bluemix’s large library of services provides a way to add innovative capabilities and application management to your solutions, without having to code the entire solution from scratch. For example, Watson Language Translation can instantly translate content into multiple languages, and DevOps Monitoring and Analytics helps you to understand the performance and availability of your application.
