In this post I will document my attempt to create my first XPages application in Bluemix. I will be following the documentation (ish) and also clicking around to see what happens. This was written July 2015 and is likely out of date soon after.
I installed the new ExtLib by downloading the last release, then in designer installing the new eclipse plugin. This is not necessary for the sake of this post but will be later.
Go to the Catalog, then scroll to the bottom and select “Looking for more”
Then from the next page select the XPages Web Starter
You will then get the screen to create the instance – over on the right give it a name – in this case I called it xpages
and you will get a screen telling you it is being created
Click on the “Dashboard” link at the top
Click on the box for the new application (xpages in this case)
Then we click on our new application link at the top – http://xpages.bluemix.net and there we have it.
Setting up our first application was a very simple set of clicking options. This is cloud – self service deployment of services and capabilities.
