  • Object Oriented Programming And ColdFusion - What's The Point?

    Posted on Oct 31, 2012 at 6:33 PM

    While it is absolutely true that an object-oriented framework is *not* necessarily the right thing to do with every single application that is built, what we tend to see more and more in practice is that applications which fall under this umbrella (ie. "Hey, can you whip me up a quick webpage t... read more »

    @snake, I also like CFML, but I'm "more into" supporting the education and growth of the community, in an attempt to provide them with new insight into development practices, so they continually grow and improve...and not come up with reasons why they consistently *shouldn't* grow and imp... read more »

    @snake, Thanks for the update on the documentation @ Adobe. It's clear in many developers' eyes that they have a unified, focused vision on what ColdFusion is, and where it is headed. It's also opinion...which (as we've seen thanks to the likes of Apple) has been called into question numerous time... read more »

    @snake, CFML is not a framework, it is a language which provides a layer of abstraction for programmers. ColdBox is a framework. Mach II is a framework. Frameworks provide a set of specific guidelines to follow when constructing software *while using a particular language*, to provide consistency a... read more »

    I realize this is a pretty old post. Nevertheless, I've updated the WoWColdFusion API to support localization, and the new Diablo 3 API calls: https://github.com/Hanzo55/WoWColdFusionAPI... read more »

    I'd also like to add that it makes for reading/understanding/maintenance of other people's work an order of magnitude easier. I moved to a new position recently and had the luxury of inheriting someone's ColdBox app, which was extraordinarily relieving. It read like a book. I very quickly understoo... read more »

    One of the truly profound benefits of designing and implementing an object-oriented system (whether in CF or other languages) is the intimate knowledge you gain of the business and domain you're coding to. I was involved in a 3 year project involving the consolidation of numerous sites that offered... read more »

    @ Matt Williams I just spent the last three weeks rewriting the core spidering robot for my website, WoW Lemmings. It is a multi-threaded CF app that is composed of two key parts: - The main object that contains a list of spiders, and has methods that manage the spiders across threads, as they tou... read more »
