Well, I am finally opening the lid on a project I have been developing since August of last year: ColdBox a ColdFusion Framework. I am just releasing the specs for this framework for now as I complete all the documentation and sample applications. If you want to see how it works, well you are already using it. This site, its blog (Raymond Camden's BlogCFC by the way), and its forums (
This new revision is now available for download. It includes the new JavaLoader cfc by Mark Mandel as a ColdBox plugin, a new sample application to show how to use the plugin, two fixes and mostly code cleanup.
The docs have been updated and so has the wiki. In the future I will be mostly updating the wiki docs, and posting the documentation there.
So please give this revision a try. You can use the auto-update feature on the Dashboard or just simply download it.
Support for ColdFusion 6.X will be on the next revision 1.0.3 plus other great features that you can check out here. 6.X has some issues that were shown into light by Aaron Conran. You can download the zip in this post that contains a new settings.cfc, XMLParser.cfc, and Application.cfm. Just replace them in your system folder and also use the Application.cfm as a template for your applications, including the s...
I just fixed a bug concerning the BugReport.cfm in the includes directory while I am working on full BlueDragon support for ColdBox. You can view the bug report and download the fix from the following url: http://trac.luismajano.com/coldbox/ticket/44 It is a simple bug of missing parenthesis.

I am just announcing that I bought www.coldboxframework.com and www.coldboxframework.org. and they will soon begin to show some life. I also have prepared my new Trac site hosted by SVN Repository which is truly awesome. Soon I will be releasing the read only access to the SVN repository and let people play around with the upcoming 1.1.0 release. (More on this below) The new address for the Trac site is: http://ortus.svnrepository.com/coldbox/trac.cgi So what will the 1.1.0 release include? Why use it? why why why? Well, I have been taking all the feedback from the previous releases, tested, tested, and more tested, and came up with a leaner and meaner framework. All thanks to the great feedback for a framework that has been released to the public not so long ago, but been used privately for more than a year now. The main question that people had asked about the framework is why should you use it and what is the difference with what is out there already: Fusebox, mach-ii, model-glue, etc. Well here are some answers for you that will shed light on the subject and prepare you for what is coming along.
I have deployed the latest build of the 1.1.0 release to my website and now providing the backbone for this blog, the forums, and ColdBox Reader. This post is to showcase ColdBox Reader. It is a web 2.0 application built using ColdBox and Ajax interactions. You can start checking it out here: ColdBox Reader This is a shared rss reader that will captivate your mind. Here is a screenshot of the application:
I won't be going this year to MAX, due to me starting a new job at ESRI the coming month. SO you won't be able to drill me with questions about ColdBox. However, Oscar Arevalo is on its way as the representative of Home Portals (www.homeportals.net) and ColdBox. He is part of the ColdBox team, so if you see him at the conference, ask him!! He has the latest copy of 1.1.0 preview, so if you are interested, you can bump a copy from him. Sorry Oscar!!...
