Getting Ready for ColdBox 1.1.0: Exceptions Listings, Documentation, Need help and more.

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

In preparation for the 1.1.0 release of ColdBox, I am writing documentation like crazy so I can help developers understand more on how to use this framework. I have just finished all of the Guides and a new section which actually lists all the thrown exceptions by the framework. You can take a look at the list here: Exceptions List Guides: Guides FAQ ...

I won't be at MAX, but Oscar Will

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

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!!...

Why does ColdBox exist? Why another framework?

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

I recently found some great comments about a user commenting on ColdBox, why it exists, why create it, etc. I found it enlightening because, not many people have used this yet, it is fairly new to the open source community and it is my job to write more about the nature of ColdBox and using a coldfusion framework. So to introduce the article I have to note that ColdBox is another tool for web application development. Just like mach-ii and model-glue. Some people want competition and which one is the best. I do not believe in that. I believe in cooperation and finding the best solution to a problem, no matter what. I even wish that all the framework authors can join and create a solution. (Anybody listening?? A standard??) So please understand, that object oriented approaches and enterprise level application architectures will be complex and you should study upon them. Here is my article:

ColdBox Framework SVN access now available!

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

I have been deliberating whether to open the SVN repo to anonymous access so people interested in the project can actually test new builds and ideas. Since the framework has been receiving an overwhelming response and my commitment to the project has been growing and brewing. I have decided to open SVN access to the repository. Below you will find the connection information.

CAUTION: checking out the latest builds, means using bleeding edge and probably not yet tested software, ...

ColdBox Framework: Should the fwreinit action be protected?

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

I have had some suggestions for the fwreinit flag to be protected in order to reinitialize the application at hand. What do you think? Is this overkill? The application reinitializes, but it does not crash. It just adds some extra cycles to the request in order to clear and reinit the app. Please send me your comments, suggestions? Should an application reinit, be password protected? Thanks, Luis
