  • CFAbort And OnRequestEnd() Behavior In ColdFusion 8 And ColdFusion 9

    Hi Brad / Ben The URL on the new tracker is this: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3040459 I slapped together what I think is a better search UI for the new bug tracker, and used that to find it: http://adamcameroncoldfusion.cfmldeveloper.com/cfbugs/search.html Note there's... read more »

  • Java's AtomicInteger vs. ColdFusion Named-Locking For Incrementing Values

    Posted on Mar 8, 2013 at 8:54 AM

    Hi Ben I just stumbled across the non-thread-safety of the ++ operator today! There's a repro case on my blog: http://adamcameroncoldfusion.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/sean-prompts-me-to-look-at-coldfusion.html -- Adam... read more »

  • Using AtomicInteger To Create Uniquely Named CFThreads In ColdFusion

    Posted on Feb 28, 2013 at 9:53 AM

    Hi Ben I totally get where you're coming from with the "emotional" side of things. We've all got idiosyncrasies in our coding. UUIDs certainly did used to be slow to create, although I think it only really became obvious under large load (the underlying java method was synchronised). And ... read more »

  • Using AtomicInteger To Create Uniquely Named CFThreads In ColdFusion

    Posted on Feb 28, 2013 at 1:00 AM

    Hi Ben Interesting technique, but I gotta say I'm with Ralph on this one. Your approach seems to be a lot of unnecessary work for something that basically just needs a unique ID. And that's what UUIDs are for. Still, obviously, I get that people have their own vagaries and preferences in how they l... read more »

    @Adam (the other one), can you pls consider submitting this to CFLib. It'll be more useful to people there rather than here, perhaps. @Ben, did you see my comment to a similar effect on your CSV UDF?

  • UPDATE: Parsing CSV Data Files In ColdFusion With csvToArray()

    Posted on Sep 27, 2012 at 3:52 AM

    G'day mate: This is the first CSV parser that I've encountered that will handle any CSV-curveball that I can throw at it. Good stuff. Most people's implementations - including Adobe's and Microsoft Excel's don't appear to be based on the CSV "spec", and fail with things like embedded CRL... read more »

    Posted on Aug 14, 2012 at 6:11 AM

    Hey Ben, the "back-issues" of your blog are being a bit of a godsend to me recently. Your tip here helped me with a blog posting of my own on a related topic ( http://adamcameroncoldfusion.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/complex-data-types-in-cf-and-how-theyre.html ) the other day. I figured I sh... read more »
