Run everywhere XPages need planning

Decompose
UI functionality into blocks that fit the smallest UI you are targeting

Make use of Custom Control Parameters

What wires would you want to use?

Wires”

Build higher level custom controls

Don't make assumptions on the containing page

Take advantage of custom parameters to define interaction between custom
controls and pages

Extend the same principles when connecting XPages in Portal or XPiNC

Wires = SOA of UI

Browser

No all browsers are created equal

Test in as many browsers you can

Test on as many platforms as you can

Rule of thumb: Dojo version needs to be released
AFTER
the browser

Some vendors interpret HTML5 in their own way

Mobile applications

Canvas

Language settings might differ

Default fonts

XPiNC

Consider using a composite application instead of a plain XPiNC

No Drag & Drop support between XPiNC Windows

Wires in PIM are sensitive to timing

Has a set of distinct properties
