Sometimes when you define an incoming API route, you want it to match certain environment or aspect conditions. The
addRoute() has an argument called
condition, which can be a closure or UDF pointer that must return a
boolean and receives the incoming
requestString. You can then decide if the route should execute or just be ignored.
So if a route matches via the
pattern, then this closu...

In this entry I will go over how to leverage ColdBox's Modular architecture to RESTFul routing.
In ColdBox, every module's
If you are creating ColdBox applications using modules, then you will benefit with the capability to nest entry points so they can match to nested sub-modules. Let's say you have the following module structure:
+modules + api + security + data

In our ColdBox RESTFul RoadShow this month, we've been talking about why ColdBox is the fastest and easiest ways to build a robust REST API in CFML. One of the very powerful features of the ColdBox MVC Platform is that you can use modules to break your apps and APIs up into management chunks instead of building a monolith. Modules also let you decouple pieces of your application so multiple teams can work on different parts. And with the power of CommandBox's CLI and package manager to assemble your app's dependencies, you can even store modules in a completely separate code repository! This is exactly what we're going to demo today.

In our last blog post, we talked about the ColdBox REST Template, a great way to use Commandbox to spin up a REST Application Template, and get started with ColdBox RESTful services. That doesn’t work if you have an existing application, and you want to add to it. That is why we have created a easy to install Module that you can just plug into your application.

One of the newest additions to the ColdBox application templates and also the CommandBox generation templates is our REST application template. This template will get you started with creating ColdBox RESTFul services. The best way to start with it is by downloading CommandBox, as we will use this for generation, scaffolding and as your integrated server. Then we can start working on our RESTFul service:
mkdir myservice box coldbox create app skeleton=rest name=MyService --installColdBox
box server start --rewritesEnable
