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 this second installation, we are looking at creating layouts, views, and routes in the main site.
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. The answer is yes and there are many ways to do it. The method you choose depends on what the goals are for the conversion. Do you need to simply keep the exact same site but start moving toward Coldbox routes? Are you putting a new look to existing functionality but need to keep an existing site up and running in the meantime? Both these and several other scenarios are possible. We’ll take this blog series to walk through some of them.

We are so excited to share a small video celebrating the 15 years of the legacy of the ColdBox Platform rocking the ColdFusion (CFML) World. It has been a truly tremendous ride, filled with lots of joy, challenges, frustrations and satisfaction that ColdBox is powering applications from companies all over the world. We started as the very first conventions over configuration MVC framework. It has become the most widely used ColdFusion (CFML) framework and the standard for developing modern web applications in ColdFusion (CFML). With tons of products, modules and frameworks that have stemmed from this initial project. ColdBox HMVC has truly been a catalyst at Ortus!
Today we are incredibly excited to release ColdBox v6.6.0 and its standalone companion libraries: CacheBox, LogBox and WireBox. This release has taken quite a few months and tons of years of research to complete. We have finally made WireBox a Hierarchical Dependency Injection framework. This is our first huge step into allowing multi-dependency management in ColdBox Modules. This means that you will be able to have modules of different versions running within the same ColdBox app and each module will be able to get the right dependency that it needs. With that said, let's explore this release.
We are so excited to bring you a major release of our
cbmailservices module. This module has been around since our initial versions of ColdBox and it has now matured into a modern and fluent library for sending mail.
We are incredibly excited to release cbSecurity version 2.13.0 today. This release packs a big punch in terms of features for our JWT support for RESTFul APIs. We are excited to announce full refresh token support and much more.
