Running FW/1 1.1RC1 on Railo

May 23, 2010 ·

I just updated this site with the latest FW/1 build and the latest public BER Railo build. Mango powers this blog but FW/1 powers the rest of this site.

FW/1 1.1 Release Candidate 1 Available

May 22, 2010 ·

The last issue on the 1.1 roadmap was implemented (and documented) this evening so the lastest download from the FW/1 RIAForge site is 1.1RC1.

The final issue was generating SES-style URLs from buildURL() and redirect() calls, as well as allowing anchors in generated links. A new optional argument has been added to both methods - queryString - that allows you to specify additional URL variables, anchors and so on. Generation of SES URLs is automatic if an inbound link was in SES form. Otherwise you can force generation of SES URLs using the new generateSES framework setting.

See the updated documentation on the wiki for more details.

CFUnited 2010 - what's on your schedule?

May 14, 2010 ·

This blog post captures my current thoughts about the sessions listed so far for CFUnited 2010 - and how many difficult choices I'm going to have to make between lots of great sessions. I think this is the best line up ever for CFUnited!

Adobe ColdFusion Anthology features FW/1

May 04, 2010 ·

Apress just released the Adobe ColdFusion Anthology - a 528 page collection of the best of Fusion Authority, edited and updated for the long-lived book format. I was one of the three technical reviewers (along with Mark Mandel and Brian Kotek) as well as a contributing author, so I'm personally very pleased to see this book out in the wild.

I have 3 chapters in the book:

  • "Say What?" Handling Unknown Messages with onMissingMethod()
  • Beans and DAOs and Gateways, Oh My!
  • FW/1: The Invisible Framework

The latter was written recently for inclusion in the book. The other two are probably my favorites among the articles I've written for Fusion Authority over the years.

I'm biased of course, but I highly recommend this book - I hope you buy a copy and find it useful!

Learning Clojure

May 03, 2010 ·

This past weekend, I attended Amit Rathore's ProClojure boot camp to learn the Clojure programming language.

I highly recommend learning other languages to give you a new perspective on the language you use every day for work.
