DXL Blues »

FERDY CHRISTANT - OCT 8, 2004 (03:27:36 PM)

Had quite some frustrations this week with DXL...

I was exporting the DXL of all the databases on the server at work using a script agent. I kicked the agent client-side and kept getting red boxes of death, time after time. Bill advised me to switch client from 6.5 to 6.0.x, but this did not fix it either. It turned out that the DXL export got stuck on every Lotus Workflow main database on the server. I'm not sure, but I suspect this is because of the way the Lotus Workflow engine is compiled: using external LSS files.

Bill's point is very valid though, apparently random memory leaks occur when using DXL on a 6.5.x client. On top of all this I ran into some other buggy behavior of DXL processing before, such as incompletely exported DXL. Not all were self-caused, I can tell you.

DXL...a great feature, but not fully implemented?

comment » DXLPeek showed us a great things about Domino's XML capabilitites. Unfortunately, when all was said and done we had to conclude that DXL as a full functioning service (import and export) is not ready for prime-time. I find this to be a bit frustrating, as I am looking forward to do much more with DXL. «

comment » Also, we saw memory leaks when working with the exportDxl class in Java agents. This came into play when exporting large dbs or note collections. To get around this we had to develop our own class, DXLPeekExporter, to handle the exporting. This class simply spoon feeds the exportDxl method and returns valid DXL. «

comment » Same experience here, Mac: It's not ready. The memory leak may have to do with which client version you run though, but I'm not sure. «

comment » I can confirm the memory leaks on the export. :-(

One Application I have in the pipeline is to use DXL to send documents via email. I need to get documents from one note system to another over a firewall and stuff. THought I would emded the dxl in a mail doc (or attachment) and fire it over to a mail in db on the other side. Somebody else must have done this already m'thinks

I havn't thought all this thru obviously, but then thats never stopped me in the past :-) «

comment » Hi - would you share the class you built to overcome the memory issues? We are also encountering problems with 6.5.1 and don't have a solution. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks «

comment » It seems DXL exports have an network issue. I tried to export database design to DXL in fairly large databases from R5.0.11, R6.0.3 and R6.5.2 servers using R6.5x clients and was greeted with frequent RCoD. We tried different client machines with no improvement (however patterns of RCoD changed).

However when exporting the same design from a local replica I works like a charm.
