Installing OpenNTF Essentials with local web preview

This took some time (OK, it took me day and it was painful), so here are some hints :

  • If you have uploaded the updatesite-runtime.nsf from, you MUST sign all the plugins (Actions/Sign all).
  • In order for the Web preview to work, you will need to manually copy the plugin and feature files found respectively in

    C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Notes\Data\workspace\applications\eclipse
    C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Notes\Data\domino\workspace\applications\eclipse\features

  • finally, when you read ‘restart http’ the command you want is

    Restart Task HTTP


    Tell HTTP Restart

And here are the most useful articles and ressources I found on the interwebs:
