ColdBox Framework: Should the fwreinit action be protected?

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

I have had some suggestions for the fwreinit flag to be protected in order to reinitialize the application at hand. What do you think? Is this overkill? The application reinitializes, but it does not crash. It just adds some extra cycles to the request in order to clear and reinit the app. Please send me your comments, suggestions? Should an application reinit, be password protected? Thanks, Luis

1.2.0 Event Handler Caching, your input is required?

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

This is more of an announcement of the upcoming 1.2.0 features. Since event handler caching will be instilled into the framework, the performance is dramatic. It actually, does not make sense to be creating event handlers for each request. So version 1.2.0 will be the last version to support uncached handlers. The versions after 1.2.0 will have caching of handlers by default. I see no benefit of not caching the handlers. And they can easily be recreated by using fwreinit= url command So. Since event handler caching actually changes A LOT in event execution. The methods will receive the request collection object, instead of the handler being injected with it at creation. What does this imply? Well, mainly the 'rc' scope will become deprecated. You can keep it, however, you must var scope it locally. Example: var rc = arguments.oRC (or whatever the argument is named, still pending)
