To give a little more background as to why I decided to post: I was not to be antagonistic or instigate a storm in a tea cup. It was because for the third time in 2014 I had been told by a notes developer something along the lines of “I can’t learn XPages because I have read that you need to learn Java and I do not have the time/skill to do so”.
For right or wrong the perception gleaned from community blogging was that was Java was required learning, which is not the case. And so I blogged.
What I did not forsee was the outpouring and wealth of knowledge bestowed on my blog comments by more that 20 members of the XPages community. I believe what was created was much much better than the original post alone and is one of the best examples of the community working together to get the *right* information out there.
The comments are unfortunately not the easiest thing to follow as there are so many of them (which is great) so what I will be doing in the near future is putting together a compilation of the sentient parts of the conversation ( ignoring the pointless sarcasm) as a resource for all.
In the mean time I wanted to say thank you one an all who contributed and to let you know I got so much more out of the post then I ever hoped for.
