Jun 11, 2018


Ortus Solutions prides itself on always learning, and evolving. Whether we learn from our colleagues, clients, community members, or other languages and communities, this all helps Ortus keep pushing forward and innovating. The CFML Community has been asking for Docker information lately, we knew Docker would be very important moving forward, and that is why we made it a priority for Ortus Solutions over the last 2 years. This week Luis and Gavin will be attending Docker Con 2018 in San Francisco ( June 12 - 15, 2018 ) to help further our learning, through great content, and great networking. If you are attending, we'd love to talk to you.

CFSUMMIT2017 - 3 ways to test your ColdFusion API

Gavin Pickin
Nov 22, 2017


CF Summit 2017 was a lot of fun, lots of new faces, and good to meet friends, old and new alike. I really enjoyed the ColdBox 2 day training, RESTFul Training Bootcamp. I also enjoyed, Pete Freitag's Hands On CFML Security Workshop. It was fun, and terrifying at the same time. My session on 3 ways to test your ColdFusion API went well, lots of interest, and lots of discussion after the class. I am sharing my slides in this post, as well as a collection of other Video Presentations from previous presentations by myself, and others, which will help build upon the information presented.

CFObjective 2017 - 3 WAYS TO TEST YOUR COLDFUSION API - Gavin Pickin

Gavin Pickin
Jul 24, 2017


Most projects in CF now involve creating some type of consumable CFC Endpoint or API Service... do you Unit test your API, do you use Integration Tests on your API? How many ways do you test your API? Not all tests are created equal.

We build our CFCs and CF API to be consumed with CF Apps, Mobile Apps, Javascript apps and devices we haven’t even thought about yet. To be smart developers we need to be able to test our CFC endpoints, and the code that uses those endpoints.
