  • ColdFusion 10 - Selectively Exposing ColdFusion Component Behaviors With Closures

    Posted on Apr 11, 2012 at 2:15 PM

    Very cool example -- the syntax is definitely going to take some getting used to in CFML. In this example, could you not achieve the same result by having Account contain all three public methods, and then a CreditOnlyAccount extend Account and override debit() with a private version (or something)... read more »

    Posted on Feb 23, 2012 at 11:01 AM

    I'm probably behind the curve on this, but could this feature be used to call methods on a CFC dynamically? Instead of having a syntax like <cfset results = arrayNew(1) /> <cfset myObj = createObject("component", "cfcs.foo" /> <cfloop list="#methodNames#&qu... read more »

    Ben, I may be missing one or two details, but would this version work? <cffunction name="XmlImport" access="public" returntype="struct" output="false" hint="I import the given XML data into the given XML document so that it can inserted into the node tree."> <cfargument name="Par... read more »

  • OOP Getters() And Setters() - A New Programmer's Frustration

    Posted on Oct 14, 2008 at 11:07 AM

    <blockquote>In ColdFusion, there's really no difference between Ints, Doubles, Floats, and Strings (etc.), so simple-data-type encapsulation means nothing to me. Don't talk to me about what happens when a hundred references to an INT suddenly need to be a 100 references to a BIGINT. In a loose... read more »
