Mementifier v2.x Released!

Luis Majano |  February 13, 2020

We are so excited to bring a major version release of our Mementifier Module. For those of you who do not know what Mementifier is, here is a small synopsis.

What is Mementifier?

This module will transform your business objects into native ColdFusion (CFML) data structures with :rocket speed. It will inject itself into ORM objects and/or business objects alike and give them a nice getMemento() function to transform their properties and relationships (state) into a consumable structure or array of structures. It can even detect ORM entities and you don't even have to write the default includes manually, it will auto-detect all properties. No more building transformations by hand! No more inconsistencies! No more repeating yourself! Best of all, it is lightning fast!

Using CFConfig to apply Government STIGs to ColdFusion servers

Brad Wood |  January 27, 2020

I wanted to highlight a recent project I help a client out with, where we used CFConfig to help automate the process of applying government STIGs to ColdFusion servers.  A STIG, or Security Technical Implementation Guide, is meant to standardize the process of setting up and auditing secure servers.  If you manage servers in a government or corporate setting, you may be familiar with this.  If not, you should still be automating your locks downs anyway, so keep reading.
