Lotus Greenhouse

by Volker Weber

Welcome to Lotus Greenhouse - This is where you will experience new technologies under development by the Lotus Software team. We encourage you to explore, provide feedback and become an extended member of our development team. We'll handle the back-end hosting so that you can focus, not on configuring and deploying, but using. We're interested in your comments, feedback and reviews as well as any bugs you may find.

Not much going on yet, but you may want to bookmark and revisit later. Depending on your browser, the exact url and the phase of the moon, the site isn't really working yet:

No workie

Apparently we are a bit early. Update: Now they are mucking around on the live production server:

IBM building on the live production site

or...they could give us an RSS feed!

Give ’em time Paul, give ’em time... they have the Web 2.0™ graphics going on, surely RSS / Atom will follow? ;o)

Tried the link but got 404 Not Found..

Nice Red Hat Enterprise Linux Test Page! :)

Colin Williams, 2006-06-09

William, try the link without the "index.html", i.e. simply the root directory.

I wonder how that is a good idea to ignore the maintenance procedures for the software. From what I read from multiple forums and discussions, one of the major issues with IBM's flagship software products is not that they're largely failing on features but rather that they're beasts to install and maintain.

It's working for me, but they greet me with white letters on a yellow background... *shakeshishead* way to go, fellas...

If RHEL is their newest technology,...

Now I got it right once, and then, staraight away:
Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /index.html.

Reason: Error reading from remote server

IBM_HTTP_Server/6.0 Apache/2.0.47 (Unix) Server at greenhouse.alphaworks.ibm.com Port 80

Oh, and now the page title says "IBM: IBM Rational Team API" - aparently, they are working straight way on the production server :-)

Gregory Engels, 2006-06-09

...and now i am only getting a 403 error from an Apache Tomcat/5.5.17 :-(

Most probably, they're building a gallery of web server error pages to gather a bit of inspiration on what errors to put into Hannover.

Karsten W. Rohrbach, 2006-06-09

There is a new one:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, farl@us.ibm.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

It’s back up! This time, with a Greenhouse-styled log-in screen :o)
