After several months of development, ColdBox 2.5.0 is finally here. This is a truly great release and I want to thank God for his guidance. The release includes tons of new features, updates and fixes. All you need to know about the framework has been documented and can be found at the current wiki: What's New in 2.5.0 Also, a compatibility guide has been created. Most likely all of your 2.0.3 code will be compatible. However, you need to understand the changes that 2.5.0 implements, since it now uses Application.cfc as a bootstrapper. You can find the guide here: Compatibility Guides for 2.5.0 Many people collaborated on this release and there are too many to name, but some are: Sana Ullah, Oscar Arevalo, Russ Johnson, Rob Gonda, Brian LeGros, Tom DeManincor, Matt Quackenbush, Aaron Roberson, Peter Bell, etc... Thanks guys!! Well, enjoy this release, and please let me know what are your thoughts and how "WE, TEAM COLDBOX" can improve on this incredible framework and software toolkit. You can download the software here:
Also, a new cheat sheet has been created and it totally rocks!! It is two pages long and it will help you in almost any ColdBox development. Enjoy this awesome release!!

My web application group, within our company, is still evaluating the adoption of Coldbox for our web application development on several web projects. We have a selected project, that was originally built on CF 4.5, that needs to be reengineered. Other newer projects have been based on ColdBox for evaluation. Fortunately for us, the framework is well documented and the guides on the Trac site are very friendly. Excellent work, sir.

Integrating ColdBox with Existing Code Series Part 4: More Integration

Integrating ColdBox with Existing Code Series Part 4: More Integration

Recently I did a webinar on Refactoring Legacy Code and the question came up about whether or not it was possible to use Coldbox with existing code without converting everything to a Coldbox module or making changes to the existing codebase. In the first installation in this series, we took a tour of the various elements which make up ColdBox. In the second installation, we looked at creating layouts, views, and routes in the main site. In this installation, we’re going to start incorporating our existing code base and do so using a module.
