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.

CFObjective 2017 - AN EXERCISE IN CLEANER CODE - FROM LEGACY TO MAINTAINABLE - Gavin Pickin

Gavin Pickin
Jul 24, 2017

 

We’ve all had those projects, the salvage project, the legacy project that we picked up, and wished we never had.

Was it written 5 years ago by that young dev with lots of passion but no big picture vision.

Was it written 6 months ago by another team, by a top gun developer who knows all the design patterns, and tried to future proof the app, only succeeding in making it impossible for anyone else to understand.

At this year's CF.Objective I had the privilege to present on CommandBox and how to create packages and publish them in our community website www.forgebox.io. It is imperative for the ColdFusion (CFML) community to start leveraging CommandBox and ForgeBox in order to create applications, libraries and share cool code!

CommandBox + ForgeBox : Code, Package, Share, Go!

CommandBox is the ColdFusion (CFML) CLI and package manager for modern applications. In this session, we will show you how to create, find and even publish packages to our centralized cloud repository, ForgeBox.

Brad Wood
Sep 30, 2014

 

Brad Wood will be giving a presentation on our newest Ortus project CommandBox this Thursday to Charlie Arehart's Online ColdFusion Meetup.  The session will be noon US Eastern and like all Online CF Meetups, will be recorded.

Topic Description:

CommandBox is a standalone, native tool for Windows, Mac, and Linux that will provide you with a Command Line Interface (CLI) for developer productivity, tool interaction, package management, embedded CFML server, application scaffolding, and some sweet ASCII art. It seamlessly integrates to work with any of the *Box products but it is also open for extensibility for any ColdFusion (CFML) project as it is also written in ColdFusion (CFML) using our concepts of CommandBox Commands.

CommandBox also functions as a package management tool which integrates seamlessly with ForgeBox, our community of ColdFusion (CFML) projects, but can also integrate with git,svn,http, ftp and many more code endpoints. Come learn about one of the coolest tools for CFML in years and how it can help your everyday productivity. 

You can find more info here at the official event page.  We hope to see you there!
