Ben Forta | 7/31/15 4:00 AM | SQL, Books

deORM() [+]
FusionGrokker | 7/31/15 12:00 AM | ColdFusion, Hibernate, Open Source
Here's a little UDF that I just finished writing that I think will be useful to those of you that use ColdFusion's ORM. The root of the problem is that doing a <cfdump> on an ORM entity is not really "safe" because its relationships will all be loaded and dumped too (unless you use the "top" attribute, which is poorly implemented). For a while I got around this by using

Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/30/15 4:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Cordova, Ionic
Today’s demo is something I started working on Sunday “for fun”, but when it turned into an unholy mess (see Recording and saving audio in Cordova applications), it took me a bit longer to wrap than I expected. The idea was simple. “Sound Boards” are apps that contain a collection of sounds, typically related to a movie or TV show. My coworker

Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 7/30/15 2:00 PM | CFML
G'day:I've probably at least touched on this once before, but I'll do it again anyhow.ColdFusion and Lucee (and before than Railo) have both got an operator ?: this is the binary equivalent of the ternary operator ?:.
