Real-World Event Gateways: Verity via Concurrency

A little while ago, there was a thread on Ben Forta's blog (I can't quite remember it) where someone was looking for practical examples of using Event Gateways. They just saved the day in my neck of the woods, and here's why: I've got an application where a common user interaction updates records in Verity. You never know how many Verity records may get updated: maybe one, maybe ten thousand...

Doug Hughes and Model-Glue on TV! (Sort of.)

It looks like Doug Hughes' newest site, FloridaVacationAuction.com, made the news last night up in Boston. You can check out the video clip at The Boston Channel's site. FloridaVacationAuction.com is the largest e-commerce site I know of that's 100% ...

Frameworks: Simpler?

I'm writing a quick To-Do list application. I created the tables (List and Task), fire up my Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework, open its XML configuration, and tell it that the List HasMany Tasks. Then, I open up my Inversion of Control (IoC) framework's XML file, and tell it about the concrete implementation of the abstract adapter I wrote to abstract the interface of the ORM fram...

What are "Beans," anyhow?

Beans are a hot topic amongst the Object-Oriented ColdFusion crowd. For a while, the ColdFusion-scoped definition seemed to be changing every few months, but it looks like we're settling down a bit now that tools like ColdSpring are showing us just how abstract the concept of a ColdFusion "Bean" is.

CFDJ and Plagarism: I am offended.

A few months ago, one of Raymond Camden's blog entries was reprinted under the Sys-Con/CFDJ banner, with Sys-Con's copyright appearing at the bottom. He blogs about it with his entry "Should I Be Honored Or Offended?." I guess it's now my turn, as my October 31 entry "Introducing Arf!" ...

Mark Mazelin on Model-Glue Redirects

Mark Mazelin has posted a very real-world example showing why the Model-Glue <result> tag has "redirect" and "append" attributes, explaining the situation that called for them very nicely. Check it out over at his blog.

A Shameful, Counterfeit "BlogCFC"

Last night, Sean posted an entry entitled "How not to develop Open Source Software?" describing another blogger's rather odd view of Open Source development. He didn't name the blogger, so I Google'd a bit and found the blog in question - and found it offering "BlogCFC 4.0.2" for download. I downloaded the .zip file, unz...

Model-Glue 2.0: "Unity"

Yes, Model-Glue is moving forward. No, it's not the all-encomposing <cf_writeMyApplicationForMe> tag you've been waiting for, but it's damn close. Yes, there is going to be Model-Glue life after 1.1. Yes, Unity will change how you do ColdFusion. It will reach the unconverted, CF 5.0 massses. And they will Grok it, because it will be easy. Yes, Unity will show the JSP develope...

Mixins and cfinclude. Again.

In my post last night, I explained my reasons for favoring the use of <cfinclude> to achieve simple "Mixins" in ColdFusion components, and asked Simon Horwith to give more detail in reference to his opposition to the idea. He did so, over on his blog, and it's well worth a read. In fact, if ...

ColdFusion Mixins: For now, I'll CFInclude.

Last night, I blogged a way of doing "Mixins" in ColdFusion that involved the <cfinclude> tag. Mixins in ColdFusion aren't new, and I wasn't expecting my post to be perceived as an increase in the community's interest in their use. I'm not sure it's any higher now than it was a few days ago.
