ColdFusion, Java, and Web Development | 9/21/17 6:00 PM | Java

Recordings from ColdFusion Developer Week 2017 [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 9/21/17 5:00 PM | presentations, cf2016
If you didn't hear, you can get free access to view the recordings of the Adobe ColdFusion Developer Week (devweek) which was held July 31-Aug 4 and offered several useful sessions. And unlike previous Adobe cfdevweeks, which often involved non-Adobe presenters (including myself), this year's sessions were all from members of the Adobe CF team, on these topics: The now and the next of Adobe ColdFusion

Quick Note on CFLib [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 9/21/17 1:00 PM
I haven't blogged about ColdFusion, or CFLib in a while, but I wanted to give folks a quick update. I migrated CFLib to Node, and then static, years ago. Due to me not really working with ColdFusion anymore and a general slowdown in submissions, I thought it was best to convert it to a static site. My intent wasn't to "retire" the site of course. While submissions slowed down, they still trickled in and folks found bugs from time to time. Un

JavaScript 201 [+]
South of Shasta | 9/21/17 7:00 AM | JavaScript
So you've learned the basics of JavaScript (and programming in general) – variables, if/else statements, loops, and you even know how to use functions. Now what? The “next steps” are often the first places things start to get confusing – DOM manipulation, event listeners, “this”, classes, object literals, JSON, and so on. We'll discuss these steps, and how you can start using them in your JavaScript applications. We'll also go over the basics of Object Orie

Run Visual Studio Code Insiders from WSL [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 9/20/17 3:00 AM
A quick tip that is 100% thanks to the Visual Studio Code twitter account. For a while now I've been able to run Visual Studio Code from WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) by simply doing code . in the directory I'm working in. However, a few months ago I switched to the Insiders build. I was hesitant to do so as it seemed like it would be risky, but after one of Microsoft's engineers assur

Microsoft's Edge Web Summit 2017 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 9/17/17 11:00 PM
This past week I spent a few days in Seattle for my first Edge Web Summit. I was also invited to spend a day extra for some discussions with various teams at Microsoft involved with the web and engineering in general. I'd like to share some thoughts about the event and Microsoft's web efforts in general. If you are ignoring Edge as a browser, you are definitely making a mistake, and even outside of that, Microsoft's efforts here should be of int

Ben Nadel explores JavaScript's String.prototype.split() method, which will return the delimiters in the result-set if the given Regular Expression pattern uses a capturing group. This provides some new and fun ways to parse strings....

Using LogBox For Logging In FW/1 [+]
ColdFusion Chef | 9/16/17 7:00 PM
I’ve seen talk of FW/1 and LogBox integration come up a few times on the CFML Slack, so I figured I’d run through a way to get that set up in your application and start using it. What Is LogBox? LogBox is a standalone enterprise ColdFusion (CFML) logging library designed to give you flexibility, simplicity, and power when logging or tracing is needed in your applications. Based on Log4j, LogBox offers capabilities to log events and data in your application using various appenders s

CommandBox, Rewrite Woes & How to Debug Them [+]
ColdFusion Chef | 9/16/17 7:00 PM
Over the last day and a half, I’ve been plagued by what seemed an oddity when working on a logging demo in CommandBox. It had me thrown to the point of thinking I came across some strange bug. So I wanted to touch on how to debug the network requests and responses going on behind the scenes of a CommandBox server instance. What was happening? Well, when I fired up my application in CommandBox and went to check for a log entry, I was literally seeing double.

New Version of vadacl Released as an NPM Package [+]
Thought Delimited | 9/15/17 2:00 AM | Angular, vadacl
It's been a LONG time since my last blog post.  Work and life simply kept me from doing a lot of personal coding.  But I'm making an effort to get back into the swing of things, and I decided to start my comeback by moving forward with my vadacl Angular validation library. For anyone not familiar with what vadacl is about, here's the current synopsis: vadacl is a library that e

I'm Still Alive! [+]
cf_gems | 9/14/17 11:40 PM | AWS, this.Blog, ColdFusion
I've really neglected writing for the past couple years. My last real post (other than yesterdays) as in November of 2015. My excuses are I wasn't 'feeling it', I was too busy working, I didn't care about writing. Whatever. I think some people figured I dropped from the face of the earth. I sort of did in some ways. In other ways I've been doing the same things I've always been doing. WORKING and WORKING. I'm still with CF Webtools

Why Is Lucee So Much Better At Handling JSON? [+]
Coder's Revolution | 9/14/17 9:43 PM | ColdFusion, Lucee
There was a Twitter conversation today where Ben Nadel mentioned that one of the continuing issues with ColdFusion was bad JSON support. I assume by that, he's referring to CF's tendency to change the datatype of variables while serializing them. I mentioned that Lucee Server has much better support for this and I'd like to show very quickly why this is. String All The Things! It all boils down to this. In Adobe ColdFusion, every single simple variable is stored as a java.lang.String. Numbers?
