How to use a database in CLI scripts with CommandBox [+]
Ortus Solutions, Corp Blog RSS Feed by ContentBox | 2/22/17 1:00 AM | CommandBox, Lucee, Tips & Tricks
One of the cool things that CommandBox allows you to do is run CFML code directly from the command line via the execute command, or on Unix as a natively-executable hash bang script. This opens up all sorts of doors for scheduling cron jobs and whatnot that you can write in CFML much faster and esaier than using bash or shell scripts. One common question is how to access the database from one of these scripts.

Another OpenWhisk Cron Example - the Blog Nag [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/21/17 7:00 PM
Last week I blogged about my first experience working with OpenWhisk triggers and rules, specifically the Cron trigger which lets you execute actions according to a schedule. Today I’m sharing another example, which, while not as complex as the 911 scraper, I thought was kind of fun. As a blogger, I try to keep to a certain amount of posts per month. While I a absolutely care more about quality than quantity, I still try to maintain a certain amount of content per month.

VS Code Extensions: mssql and vscode-database [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/18/17 12:00 AM
For today’s review of Visual Studio Code extensions, I looked at two related extensions that provide basic database support. In the past, when I was a heavy ColdFusion user, I was a huge fan of the database support in ColdFusion Builder. Now - CFBuilder was Eclipse-based so it was quite heavy, but I loved it’s database viewer. I don’t have it installed currently, but the basic feature set included being able to view all tables and structure as well as write ad hoq queries again

Building a Form Handler Service in OpenWhisk - Part Two [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/15/17 8:00 PM
A few weeks ago I blogged about creating a generic “forms handler” with OpenWhisk. The idea was that you could point any form at the action and it would gather up the form data and email the results. One of the issues with my action was that it only worked via a HTTP call to the end point. That made it fine for a simple Ajax call from JavaScript, but it missed one of the cooler features that most form handling services provide - the ability to redirect to another URL when done.

Collecting 911 Data with OpenWhisk Cron Triggers [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/14/17 9:00 PM
Today I’m sharing probably the most complex thing I’ve built with OpenWhisk. While I’m proud of it, I will remind people I’m still the newbie to this world, so keep that in mind as I explain what I did. Many years ago, like seven (holy crap), I built a ColdFusion demo that parsed local 911 data and persisted it locally to a database: Proof of Concept 911 Viewer. I used a Yahoo Pipe to suck in the HTML data provided by a local police web site and convert into something I

You want to travel to the Bahamas and you have to pick a web programming platform to take you there.ColdFusion is a cruise ship with almost no other passengers. It's all inclusive. It's a smooth ride, but sometimes it docs 50 feet from the port and you have to swim the rest or book the last bit with Java.Java is a full cargo ship. It's slow to get moving. You have a very safe room in the center of the boat but you have to catch any cargo containers if they fall on you. You'll
