ColdBox: How long should the Debug Cookie last?

Luis Majano
Oct 15, 2008

 

This is a question for you to answer. ColdBox supports the mode of being in debug mode or not. It does so, by placing a cookie on your browser so you can see the debugging panel only with that cookie set. The question is, how long should that cookie live? What should the expiration time be? Any suggestions?

ColdBox 1.2.0: RequestContext name change to Event. What are your thoughts?

Luis Majano
Oct 15, 2008

 

I think that a standard is arising on the way a method is injected with a request bus. My naming was requestContext and I believe mach-ii and fusebox use both event. I think it would be benefitial for developers for me to change this to event. What are your thoughts on this? This would help if a developer wants to switch from one framework to another or doing a transition, if some of the similar elements shared in an MVC framework can remain the same. I am for changing it to event, but I would like to know you opinions?

Thanks to Mr. Charlie Griefer, we just set up the ColdBox IRC channel. You can connect to it via DALNET and then just join the coldbox channel. I will be mostly connected at night (Pacific Time). This channel is to promote more live responses from the ColdBox community. You will be able to ask me any questions about ColdBox and more of the veteran ColdBox users will also log in and share their ColdBox experiences. So you veteran masters out there, please try to contribute by logging in and sharing your experiences. I will also try to spend more time in the channel on Saturdays to help out anybody wanting to try out ColdBox or just find out more information about this great framework. Some of the software that you can use to log in to IRC are the following:


So remember: IRC on DALNET
Channel: #coldbox You can also download the latest build of ColdBox (RC1) here. See you there...

I know this is late, but I have been swamped at work, so things have been slow.
Sean Corfield has blogged about ColdBox, over at http://corfield.org/blog/index.cfm/do/blog.entry/entry/ColdBox and does a mini-review on it. He also asks ColdBox users to give their opinions on why they chose Coldbox? Why they like it? etc? Some people have already made their comments. So if you still have not commented, please head over there and submit your comments. Thanks. Luis

Now that 2.5 is out and the Dashboard 2.2.2 is also out, what do you expect for further releases. Russ Johnson joined team ColdBox and he is brining a tons of new ideas and funky stuff that will blow your mind. But apart from those, what are your expectations on ColdBox? What do you want from this framework AND toolkit!! More plugins? More interceptors? More GUI releated ideas? More debugging tools? What? Also, what are your thoughts on the ColdBox Dashboard Application? Does it make your life easier to start a project? What features do you want on it? What would make you use the Dashboard as part of your development? (Please note, that the dashboard is separate from the framework) So give me your thoughts and ideas!!
