Coldbox 3.0 and the CFC Config...

Curt Gratz |  June 29, 2010

One of my favorite new features of Coldbox 3.0 is the ability to have a CFC only config file. Thats right, no more XML. No don't get me wrong, XML has its place, but I love the ability to get funky with my config file. With it now being a CFC, I can do some crazy cool stuff.

For example

  1. I can now have my config files all extend a base config file or any other CFC, now thats cool.
  2. I can get creative with defining my enviromental variables, or create any other kind of helper functions.
  3. I can easily set a variable anywhere in the config file and EASILY refer to it.

These are just a few of the ways that I have already taken advantage of the Config.cfc.

What are some ways you have? Feel free to comment with any crazy or funky ideas you've used or plan to use with a fully ColdFusion-ifide (its a word, look it up) config file, I'd love to hear them.

Howdy fellow Europeans!!  I wanted to survey out where in Europe do we have some ColdBox users or potential users.  We are planning some big things for Europe this year, so we want to know where you are so we can go there.  So please fill this quick survey out and contribute to ColdBox! Thanks!
