Flow v1.0 Beta 3 LS Logging Engine Released

October 10th, 2008 by Corey Davis

Notes 8 LogoThis latest release of Flow, an open-source LotusScript logging engine, includes a speed enhancement provided by Kevin Pettitt, a fix for a rare inaccuracy in the error count, and adds new functionality such as ContinueText, a log cleanup utility, localization for easier international integration and more.

I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Kevin Pettitt (SuperNTF) not only for the bug fix but for encouraging me to get Beta 3 out the door. Also, if any international developers using Flow takes advantage of the localization I would very much appreciate it if you would send me your localization libraries for inclusion in future versions of Flow.

Flow is available on OpenNTF.org.

    Now if I can just get you to change the name :-)

    How about log4Dom ;-)

    Check out my posting circa 2003 in the openntf code bin.

    I also wanted a logging tool to write to a document (like log4j), rather than the openlog way and to write to log files or messageboxes.

    I must say though, I like your implementation better than my own. Having the richtext support and mail enabling – something that I thought about but never implemented.

    I’m not sure how I missed your original posting – I’ve sort of assumed that most people use openlog these days.

    BTW : I still use the same(ish) code for my applications today. You can never under estimate the value of a good logging system.

    Thanks for the kind words! I agree that most people do use OpenLog, and why wouldn’t they? It is fantastic! But, it really doesn’t address what Flow or log4Dom does. BTW…I have to admit I missed log4Dom. Before releasing Flow I searched through the projects for something like Flow and didn’t find anything. I didn’t think of looking at the Code Bin. I’ll look at it in the next few days.

    Just goes to show how important the name is for effectively conveying what something is all about.

    I knew you were going to say that! :-)
