Raymond Camden'sBlog | 1/30/15 9:00 PM | Misc
As I prepare to leave Adobe, I want to acknowledge the enormous amount of help I had from Jack Wilber. One of the Adobe benefits I had was the use of an editor, and Jack has been helping improve my blog posts over the past few years. He never once complained about my constant misuse of its and it’s or than and then. I’m double checking this post as well to ensure I didn’t miss anything, but most likely, I did. Thanks Jack, you’re awesome.

Login Requirements for Sometimes You Have To Use Last Name, Sometimes You Don't [+]
Josh Adam's Blog | 1/30/15 7:28 PM | Travel, Drivel, Delta Air Lines
Delta Air Lines operates their main website at To the best of my recollection, for a long time the only way to login to (and before that, was using a SkyMiles number and its corresponding 4-digit PIN (so you used SkyMiles number + 4-digit PIN). At a certain point, this changed such that the corresp

My Thoughts on James Harvey's Apology [+]
FusionGrokker | 1/30/15 7:00 PM | Meta
In my last entry I detailed all of the evidence we could amass for the systematic and repeated plagiarism of James Harvey, aka WebDevSourcerer before he erased his existence from the internet. (We still have and the google cache, but I think we've built a pretty solid case against him already, why spend more effort?) I knew at the time that Dave

Whats better than Firefox Developer Tools? Firefox Developer Edition [+]
Gavin Pickin - A Minute in the mind of Me | 1/30/15 6:00 PM | Javascript, Tools and IDEs
In the world we work in, the Web world, there are lots of IDEs and tools out there. One of the best tools to ever come out for Web / Javascript development, and made developing in Javascript even possible I thing, was Firebug. These days most modern browsers have web tools, and they're getting better every day. Some like Firefox's Dev tools, others prefer Chrome, and I have heard that IE 11s are actually pretty amazing. Each suite of test tools one ups the other, and the innovation is good fo

Elaborating on an Adobe blog entry today, related to tweaking CFCLASSES to solve slow CF startup [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 1/30/15 6:00 PM | cf9, cf8, admin, cfmx, cf911, cf10, cf11, tuning, troubleshooting
The fine folks at the Adobe CF blog posted a blog entry today, on "Sometimes ColdFusion services refuse to start normally post server restart" (by Rahul Upadhyay), which offers some helpful information on one possible solution to the stated problem. That said, there are some concerns I have, with respect to how I fear some may re

Pruning for Growth (Less is More) [+]
ColdBox Blog | 1/30/15 5:00 PM | Tips & Tricks
ColdBox 4.0 is the most significant change in the framework since it was first introduced. Go ahead - let that soak in a bit. Now, what do I mean by that? Lots. Too much for a single blog post to do justice without becoming tl;dr. That's just how big these changes are. Pruning One of the key aspects to ColdBox 4.0 is what is not actuallyinColdBox 4.0. Yo

Handling Top-Level Errors In A Promise Workflow In AngularJS [+]
Kinky Solutions | 1/30/15 2:00 PM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel looks at how to handle top-level errors in an promise workflow in AngularJS. You can sort of use the $q.when() method in somewhat the same way that Q.fcall() works....

Monkey-Patching The $q Service With .fcall() In AngularJS [+]
Kinky Solutions | 1/30/15 2:00 PM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel attempts to monkey-patch the $q service with a .fcall()-inspired method which will safely transform failed method invocations into rejected promises....

"Open Source" doesn't mean "free" [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 1/30/15 1:51 PM | Lucee
G'day:There was some irksome feedback re the Lucee release last night. This mostly centred around feigned (if not "feigned" then just "pig ignorant") horror that Lucee Association Switzerland has the gall to charge a membership fee. And somehow conflating that with the concept of "Open Source" and positioning Lucee as some sort of Bilderberg Group-esque evil cabal.Well... settle the fuck down, will you?

Sometimes ColdFusion services refuse to start normally post server restart: [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 1/30/15 1:00 PM
We have received few incidents wherein users were not able to start ColdFusion services after server reboot or while restarting the services manually. Reason: Applications dynamically generate ColdFusion files and sometimes also deletes them, but ColdFusion does not remove any old files from the cfclasses folder. {cf.

Latest Firefox adds Storage to Developer Tools [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 1/30/15 1:00 PM | Development
I try to keep track of what all the browsers add to their developer tools, but somehow I missed this. In a recent Firefox update, they finally added a “Storage” tab to the developer tools. For some reason, this tab was deselected in my Firefox. I only knew it existed when I opened up the options looking for something else.

Check Out PaintCan [+]
Ben Forta | 1/30/15 1:00 PM | Labs, Mobile
As children we used to love to paint because it was fun. As adults, we too often stop expressing ourselves creatively because we think we lack the skills or time to do so. PaintCan lets you reclaim your creativity. PaintCan is the latest from Adobe Labs, and is now available f

Lucee in the Clouds with Java - Hello World, from Lucee [+]
Gavin Pickin - A Minute in the mind of Me | 1/30/15 8:00 AM | CFML Language, CFML Server, Migrating to Railo, Server Admin
Less than 12 hours ago, we were on the dawn of a big announcement in the CFML world, and only a few knew it was coming. A few more knew something was coming, but were not sure what it was, myself, I was expecting some tools, or a new version, or something, to put it mildly, I was surprised to hear what the big announcement was. There is a new server product on the CFML Engine market, LUCEE.

Lucee and FW/1 [+]
FW/1 - The Invisible Framework | 1/30/15 12:00 AM
Today saw the announcement of the Lucee Association Switzerland and the release of a new open source CFML engine: Lucee 4.5.0. For background on the new engine and the association behind it, read Adam Cameron’s blog post with Q&A about the launch. I’ve already migrated all my local test environments to Lucee and can report tha

Suggestions for learning JSON? [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 1/29/15 11:00 PM | Development, JavaScript
Yesterday a reader asked me a question about one of my blog posts. In the blog post, I described a Cordova application that would retrieve a list of URLs from a server. It would then fetch each URL and download the resource to the device. I casually described the data as “an array of URLs in JSON” and assumed everyone would know what that meant. Of course, not everyone does know what JSON means. It got me thinking about how someone

Lucee launch: thanks [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 1/29/15 10:05 PM | Alex Skinner, Brad Wood, Lucee, Mark Drew, Micha Offner-Streit, Sean Corfield
G'day:I'd just like to say that Micha gave an excellent presentation this evening, especially for a fella who was giving his first presentation ever. And also in a language that isn't his primary one. And not just some flippant "I fancy giving a presentation at a conference" sort of affair, but annoucing the release of something quite significant and controversial in our wee community, and career defining for him personally. No pressure then, eh?Also I'd like to say thanks to A

ZF2's Lovely MultiCheckBox Funkiness [+]
ColdFusion Beyond | 1/29/15 8:00 PM | PHP, Zend
This morning I wasted have my morning trying to get Zf2 to be nice and do what I wanted.  We have a form with a multicheckbox element where it is required to pick one.  Now, the Zend filter worked fine for this.  What it wouldn't do, however, is any other validation nor would it accept my attempts to change the error message from "Value is required and can't be empty".  The usual method would be to set the not_empty option in messages, like this:

Give a warm welcome to: We found out today that Michael Offner, formerly of the Railo Company has split off and forked Railo into a new project called Lucee ( pronounced Lucy )! This is exciting news as it seems that all the most prominent projects are getting their own forks recently (see node.js). The project is now
