How Can I use a Jar library in CFML?

CFML makes it simple to instantiate and use native Java classes without leaving CFML-land. For example, we can use Java's SimpleDateFormat library to format a date object. In order to use a third-party java library, however, such as the Jsoup HTML parser, you will need to load the jar into the CFML engine first, so let's see how we can do that.

Announcing - Pre-Conference + 3rd Track for Into the Box

Due to Covid and other reasons, some of the CFML Community Speakers will not be able to make this years Into the Box - but we wanted to include them anyways. After much discussion and debate, we eventually decided, in the efforts to maximize content, and ensuring we have speakers in front of attendees, the best option was to host a third track for the conference, and we’re calling it the pre-conference track.

ITB 2022 Podcast Series - Workshop - VueJs SPA and Mobile App with Rest APIs with Gavin Pickin

This podcast is a special podcast for attendees or undecided attendees, to get a view of what the workshop has to offer, from the Trainers themselves, Gavin Pickin and Daniel Garcia. This workshop will walk us through creating a Quiz Game app with a ColdBox REST API backend and a VueJS Application, written in the Quasar Framework. We will start with the concept, design our database, plan our API, write some tests, build our API, create our Quasar Framework App, and write some VueJS to hit those API Endpoints. This Quiz game will have a real-world use case, as it brings back to life an old ColdFusion / ColdBox concept, delivered in a fresh new way.
