Smith Project - a first look
May 14, 2007 ·
I downloaded the Smith Project
and took it for a test drive.
First off, as I mentioned at the end of my earlier blog post
, the integrated Linux version, with Jetty included, does not work on Mac OS X.
So I tried the WAR deployment next. My first target was JRun but it wouldn't work there. So I tried Tomcat 6. Nope. Tomcat 5.5. Success!
Smith starts up (in just under 6 seconds) and some very basic CFML pages show it working. I try the admin console and all the pages come up but no setting changes take effect. Hmm...
Well, let's try something a little more complicated. Let's try Fusebox 5 and the skeleton application.
It doesn't like this:
<cfcatch type="any" />
It requires this:
There's a few of tho' in the Fusebox core files.
It doesn't implement cfprocessingdirective
. Fine, I'll just comment that out in fusebox5.cfm
. Now I'm just getting an impenetrable compiler error about some exception already having been caught in the compiler, flagging a cfinclude
Anyone else had any experience with Smith yet?
