So what's new with LogBox 1.1, well here are the tickets:
The most important considerations are that we now have a utility that distinguishes when you are within an executed cfthread in any CFML engine. LogBox uses this now for all of its asynchronous operations. We also have refactored the download so LogBox can be installed alongside any ColdBox version or any other framework. If you want to use LogBox in your ColdBox 3.0.0 applications, you already have it installed, so don't worry.
Category definitions can now use '*' to define that you want ALL appenders for a specific logging category. You can also omit them and LogBox will add all of them too. However, be precise and use '*' if you want all appenders.
The last ticket was contributed to us and it is a great addition to the Email Appender, so now you can set the flags for SSL and TLS a-la-carte. So enjoy LogBox 1.1!
Now to our mocking and stubbing library MockBox! So what's new with MockBox 1.1:
|911||Standalone version should be refactored into its own namespace||Fixed|
|940||new method querySim() to help simulate queries||Fixed|
We have also refactored the standalone download so it can be used alongside any ColdBox version or framework. We have also added a nice UDF to simulate queries called querySim(). This way you can easily simulate and mock queries from your tests by doing things like:
mockQuery = querySim("col1, col2
val1 | val2
valrow2 | valRow2
valRow3 | valRow3");
That's it, just use the first line of the call to put your columns comma delimited and then a break and you rows separated by breaks and columns separated by '|'. A very cool way to simulate queries.
And finally, it has some minor fixes and tweaks, nothing extraordinary apart from the library itself!
So enjoy these two new standalone releases which can also be found in our upcoming ColdBox 3.0.0 Milestone 4 release!
