ColdBox Framework Reinit Strategies!

Everybody updates their code.  Some more than others, and many during business hours.  This leads to the inevitable conundrum of needing to reinit your ColdBox application to pick up said changes. If ColdBox is reinitted while a server is under load, some users may get errors, so it's a very common to get questions about how to handle that.

Injecting Functions with WireBox

Brad Wood |  January 31, 2017

This is a guest post by Eric Peterson.

I had a unique use-case the other day, and I wanted to share the solution with you all.

I use [a custom `Collection` component](https://github.com/elpete/CFCollection) to handle many higher-order functions like map, reduce, filter, etc. Basically, it wraps an array or a query and lets you continue chaining these functions, kind of like [wrapping a value with lodash in Javascript](https://lodash.com/docs/4.17.4#lodash).

Tips for handling ColdBox module routing with nested modules

Brad Wood |  January 24, 2017

ColdBox modules have revolutionized the way that CFML developers can reuse and organize code.  Modules follow an HMVC, or Hierarchical MVC pattern that allows you to not only break apart your CFML app into smaller chunks, but to stack those pieces into a hierarchy that really makes sense of your code.  We also call this module inceptions-- the act of nesting modules inside of each other.  

So with that in mind, a question came across the ColdBox Google group today asking about how to access events from within nested modules and how that manifests itself in the URL.  Before I responded, I spun up a quick site in CommandBox to test and I found to my dismay that the answer was very difficult to find in our docs.  As such, I figured a quick blog post was in order since it's fairly easy to set up if you know what to do.
