CFML: initmethod and CFC inheritance [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/18/15 7:58 PM | CFML
G'day:This was supposed to be one of three PHP articles I have up my sleeve and need to write, but whilst testing some Lucee stuff I came to be thinking about this. That said, this is a general CFML question, not a Lucee one.In the context of object initialisation, CFCs have always been a bit of a mess. Our "learn`d" colleagues at Macromedia decided we'd not need constructors, and instead just allowed us to put code between methods in the CFC file, and all th

The simplicity of Lucee [+]
As simple as possible, as complex as necessary | 4/18/15 12:00 PM
How Lucee is making my code simpler compared to ColdFusion 9

Lucee 5 beta: a direct question about createObject() [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/18/15 7:07 AM | Lucee, Micha Offner-Streit
G'day:In an attempt to get a direct straight answer out of Micha regarding createObject() and loadComponent(), I have posed a very direct question about it on the Lucee Google Group:createObject(). Focused question...

Coming in 2016 [+]
Polymorphism | 4/18/15 4:00 AM | Product, Strategy, family, life
Over a year ago, I added the phrase “Coming in 2015″ to the home page for Live Editor. As Seth Godin points out, a project isn’t a project until it has a deadline. Well… I just had to bump that number up to 2016. This is something that I try to avoid, especially as I continue t

Lucee 5 beta: new beta 5.0.0.44 [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/17/15 10:07 PM | Lucee
G'day:The Lucee Team are continuing to have a pretty good release cycle with the beta updates: 5.0.0.44 has just been pushed out. There's a few things I raised in there which is pleasing. It's only quite a small release - eight issues fixed - but this is cool when the release cycle is so short.The release notes were posted to the Lucee Google Group - "New Beta Release (5.0.0.44)" - but

IndexedDB and Limits [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 4/17/15 9:00 PM | Development, HTML5, JavaScript
Earlier this week I posted about hitting the limits of LocalStorage (Blowing up LocalStorage) and today I thought I’d do a bit of testing around IndexedDB. Unfortunately, I don’t really have a simple “if you do this, X happens” type story to tell, but I did find out some interesting things about storage limits. I want to thank the following people for hel

Red Hat [+]
thecrumb | 4/17/15 7:00 PM
In the late 90's I was in a bit of flux in my career making the change from a network administrator role to my start in web development and ColdFusion. During this time I can also remember attending the Linux Expo at Duke. I didn't attend the actual conference but do remember visiting the sponsor area and picking up a Gnome t-shirt, some cool stickers an

Lucee 5 beta: .lucee files [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/17/15 7:56 AM | Lucee
G'day:I held off on this one hoping more information would come through from LAS, but I've run out of other documented features to look at, so here we are.Lucee has added a new "language" to their engine, which is a dialect of CFML.The beta docs say this about it:The Lucee dialect is a modern language based on the original concepts of

Lucee 5 beta: tweak [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/17/15 7:56 AM | Lucee
G'day:There's another few odds 'n' sods with the Lucee 5 beta that are testable / demoable, but they're pretty trivial / small features, so I'll have to do a series of "misc" blog articles.There's a bunch of more significant stuff I have not looked at yet because there's no beta documentation for them, so I cannot work out what to do. It's been observed that I am being unhelpful to the Lucee project for making observations like this, interestingly enough. I'm not one to get all

Lucee 5 beta: tag attributes fix [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/17/15 7:56 AM | Lucee
G'day:Here's another quick one. I'm waylaid at work and have a few minutes to spare between one hold-up and the next one.One of the most stupid things about the way CFML tags are processed is that in this tag:<cfinvoke method="f" arg1=m arg2=n>The tokens m and n are treated as strings. IE: the literal strings "m" and "n".Clearly they're no

In this multi-day bootcamp, we are going to examine what Mura ORM is, what you can accomplish with it, and some practical ways you can use it to speed your Mura plugin and extension development.

The Second Star Wars Teaser [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 4/16/15 10:00 PM | Movies
I was supposed to write a blog post on IndexedDB today – instead I got royally distracted by the epic cool new Star Wars teaser: There is so much to love in this. I love how the opening shot is reminiscent of ANH’s landspeeder shot. I love the crashed Star Destroyer. And then thing

Creative Cloud And Android [+]
Ben Forta | 4/16/15 5:00 PM | Creative Cloud, Mobile
We've released lots of great Creative Cloud apps for iOS. But what about us Android users? Good news! The Creative Cloud team has just announced that Android versions of the apps are on the way.

Mura Plugins Boot Camp: Day One [+]
Mura CMS Blog | 4/16/15 2:00 PM
Mura Plugins are one of the most convenient, effective ways of building custom functionality into Mura CMS. Plugins can range from the small and innocuous, such as something that creates a Bundle on a daily basis, to large applications that add complex new sets of custom functionality such as eCommerce, forums and the like. This series will start by examining the most basic forms of plugins and build progressively towards the complex, eventually including topics like MuraORM, the re

Lucee 5 beta: abstract (redux) [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 4/15/15 4:36 PM | Lucee
G'day:Right, after a bit of a false start with the abstract support in Lucee (ie: they forgot to release it in the 5.0.0.42 version, when I first tried it - "Lucee 5 beta: abstract components (abject fail now fixed)"), it's now all working (as of 5.0.0.43). So I'll revisit with an example to demonstrate its behaviour.A while back I looked at how PHP dealt with abstract

Speaking on Ionic next week at FluentConf [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 4/15/15 4:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Mobile, Ionic
After a very long dry spell (thank you again, Adobe, for consigning me to technical writing), I’ll be back on stage next week at FluentConf 2015. FluentConf is easily one of the best technical conferences around. Last time I checked the schedule, I pretty much wanted to attend every single session. If you are in the area, or can make it, I highly recommend attending. And what about me? I’ll be speakin
