When and how to upgrade CF web server connector, easier since CF2016 [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 11/18/19 8:30 AM | updates, cf2016, cf10, cf11, cf2018
Did you know that when you update ColdFusion, there is often a need to also update the web server connector (for IIS and/or Apache)? In this post, I discuss how you can know when to do it (Adobe makes that easier since CF2016), as well as how to do it (also easier since CF2016), and why it's important. [More]

TeraTech | 11/17/19 5:00 PM | Auto Security Lockdown, CF Training, CF Vs. Other Languages, CFML, ColdFusion 2018, ColdFusion 2020, Lucee
Time to “pop the hood” on ColdFusion! I’ve given you the simple, superficial reasons as to why  ColdFusion rocks: speed, security, modernization. Now, let’s see the nuts and bolts that make ColdFusion shine!

Component Queries Metadata Appears To Be Broken When The Ivy Renderer Is Enabled In Angular 9.0.0-rc.2 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 11/17/19 8:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates what appears to be a bug in the Ivy renderer in Angular 9.0.0-rc.2. When Ivy is enabled, @Component() queries don't work - only @ViewChild() (and similar) decorators appear to work. However, if Ivy is disabled, @Component() queries work as expected....

Component View-Template Fragments Retain Bindings And Can Be Moved Around In The DOM In Angular 9.0.0-rc.2 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 11/17/19 7:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates that, at least in this one experiment, a component view-template fragment can be moved out of the confines of the component and into the root of the document body while still retaining the template-bindings in Angular 9.0.0-rc.2....

Closure Variable-Access Changes With Function Expressions vs. Function Declarations In Lucee CFML 5.3.3.62 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 11/16/19 7:00 AM | ColdFusion
Ben Nadel demonstrates that nested function declarations do not act as closures in Lucee CFML 5.3.3.62. Closure behavior only applies to function expressions. Which means that only function expressions have access to the parent function's local and arguments scopes....

Moving from DI/1 to Wirebox in a FW/1 application [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 11/14/19 11:30 AM | Blog, ColdFusion, Modern CFML, 2018, blog, modern cfml
I wanted to leverage some of the extra power that Wirebox gives me over DI/1 so decided to have a go at switching from DI/1 to Wirebox. This is what I learnt. Before I start digging into this, this isn’t a blog post about ColdBox vs FW/1, I’ve used both and like both – I’d recommend you try them both and make up your own mind. Framework 1 (or FW/1) has support for Wirebox, you’ll need the WireBoxAdapter.cfc that is part of the FW/1 proj

Collapsing Sticky Elements And Maintaining Scroll Offsets In Angular 9.0.0-rc.2 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 11/14/19 8:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates how to maintain an appropriate scroll offset within the Window when a large portion of the content is collapsed in Angular 9.0.0-rc.2. This is inspired by the sticky file-header that GitHub uses in their Pull Review experience....

Using Redis with Lucee: An Approach with the CommandBox Docker Image and Ortus Redis Extension [+]
Matthew J. Clemente | 11/14/19 5:30 AM
Well, the title feels a bit like word soup, but I think it’s accurate. When I got started with Lucee, containers, and external cache providers, I blogged about using Memcached. At work, we’ve since shifted our stack, and now primarily use Redis for caching. This post outlines some reasons for that change and includes an example repo of the Lucee/Redis conf

Serverless JAMStack AndCats Demo [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 11/14/19 5:00 AM | vuejs, javascript, static sites
Many years ago, I built a demo called “AndKittens”. This was a simple Node application that used wildcard subdomains and the Bing Image Search API to let you find pictures of kittens and… whatever. You would use the subdomain to specify what you wanted, so for example, bacon.andkittens.us would return pictu

Why I keep going back to the learning, getting started, etc. articles. [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 11/13/19 10:00 AM | Blog, Learning, blog, ColdFusion, learning
Recently I have started going back through at least one of the “getting started” guides out there for CFML each year.  I’ve been doing CF for about two decades now so what is the value to revisiting these sites and rehashing things that should be second nature?  I guess I’m bored.  Nah it’s not that, but it is that I do get something out of it.  Like with the recent Certification Adobe did at CF Summit there is stuff I just plain don’t use and forget about.

Is it necessary to cfqueryparam all values? [+]
ColdFusion, Java, and Web Development | 11/13/19 9:30 AM | ColdFusion
I had a question today asking why Fixinator does not add cfqueryparam to static values within a query. For example if you have this code: <cfquery> INSERT INTO tbl (a, b) VALUES ( #a#, 'b' ) <cfquery> When you run Fixinator's autofix on the above, it would give you: <cfquery> INSERT INTO tbl (a, b) VALUES ( , 'b' ) <cfquery
