  • Using ColdFusion Structures To Remove Duplicate List Values

    Posted on May 24, 2010 at 4:15 AM

    I believe the reason for the exception was not the list length but it's items. 37077015 is a big numeric value. Making a structure key from it might cause some problems. Exception was 500 internal server error and then many encoded characters like "‹ ÅZ{sâ8 ÿ;SµßAÇ" :(... read more »

    Hello Ben. No good :( Gave me a "500 server internal error" on CF8 when playing this trick with list consisting of 1 element [37077015]. In all other cases it worked like a charm. Think I'll have to try Java method instead :(... read more »

    Base 36 generates 6 characters-long string from 9 digit SSN. This way badge barcodes are way easier to remember :) Anyway, this was the only time I ever used these functions but they seem to be really useful for hardcore developers.... read more »

    @Ben, Using soap is pretty simple when working with Java objects: <cfset objServerXMLHttp.open("POST", " https://www.somehost.com/ReceiveXML.asp ", False) /> <cfset objServerXMLHttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "text/xml; charset=utf-8") /> <cfset objServerXMLHttp.setRequestHea... read more »

  • How ColdFusion CreateObject() Really Works With Java Objects

    Posted on Mar 9, 2010 at 10:16 AM

    you can also create WebService objects this way. i.e.: <cfscript> dynamicsWS = CreateObject("webservice", "http://192.168.0.100/DynamicsGPWebServices/DynamicsGPService.asmx?WSDL"); </cfscript> <cfinvoke webservice="#dynamicsWS#" method="GetCompanyList" refreshWSDL="yes" timeout="30"... read more »
