I will be presenting at the Melbourne CFUG this October 18th on ColdBox. However, it will be on my 2AM, (thanks Mark!!) So I will have to struggle with sleep deprivation for the presentation. You can find more information on the presentation here....
Well ladies and gentleman, a new era of ColdBox is here and its called ColdBox 2.5.0 : Romans 8:32
This is a major step forwards for ColdBox and I am proud now to announce all the new features (some are left out for beta 2, hush hush). The new Dashboard is still in construction and not included in this beta. The sample applications are unfinished also, but 2.5.0 compliant.
Here are two new guides and the documentation will start its updating cycle starting today:
New Interceptors Guide:
New Request Context Decorators Guide:

Fixes, Updates and New Features for 2.5.0 : Romans 8:32

- #163 Project Interceptors : You can now intercept calls in over 12 execution points of a user request,
I am now debugging ColdBox for BlueDragon 7 and came upon an interesting bug that I cannot find a solution for. I am trying to get an iterator out of a linkedHashMap and BD keeps throwing me a Method hasNext could not be legally accessed. Has anybody experienced this? If so, please help.
Below is the current simple code:
LinkedHashMap = CreateObject("java","java.util.LinkedHashMap").init(3);
Collections = createObject("java", "java.util.Collection...
Here is the link to the presso I gave at the Melbourne CFUG this past week. It was an awesome presso delivered at my 2AM until 4AM. Thanks Mark, for the invitation. Anyways, this presso includes the latest 2.5.0 Beta features. A very nice in depth look into the coming version of ColdBox Romans 8:32. So enjoy: http://adobechats.adobe.acrobat.com/p40648765/...
Well, my secret project is out of the bag today. I have been working in embedding a remote proxy into ColdBox in order to enable remote applications like Flex and AIR to communicate with ColdBox and provide an event model for our model. If that makes sense!! Well, so what do we get? This feature lets you create an event driven model that can easily be called from any flex/air application. Not only that, but you can reinitialize the entire application, get settings, and yes, announce custom or core interceptions. You can create custom interceptor chains for your model that can be executed asynchronously when a user hits a save record button for example. The possibilities are endless. Not only that, but this enables you to actually create two front ends using the same reusable ColdBox and model code. The code is the same, you create event handlers, you interact with a request collection, with core and custom plugins, but you don't set views or layouts because the framework is now a remote framework for your model. So what do you do, well, return data, arrays, xml, value objects. Anything, right from withing the event handlers.
Thanks to Rob Gonda., ColdBox now has nightly builds. You can download the nightly build from the following location: http://www.coldboxframework.com/downloads/nightlybuild/coldboxNB.zip I have added the information to the wiki and will be updating the other locations soon. The task runs at 12:00 AM every day. When you unzip the build, you will see a build...

I have just updated three critical fixes on the RC1 bits that I forgot to include in my script and on my tests. The fixes encompasses the following: 1) Applications running off a root where not registering the handlers property. This has been solved. 2) The multi-threaded logger for coldfusion 8 and bluedragon 7 has been updated with the correct attributes that where missing. 3) The multi-threaded cache manager for coldfusion 8 and bluedragon7 has been updated with the correct attributes ...
I just realized that the compilation under cf8 will not work in cf7. Therefore, I will have to alter my compilation scripts to do cf7 and cf8 compilations for the Dashboard. Expect an update for the dashboard in the RC1 package by the end of the weekend. This should be easy to setup so I can deliver a cf8 and cf7 compiled dashboard....
