  • Streaming Secure Files Efficiently With ColdFusion And MOD XSendFile

    Interesting technique. Only problem is that it requires apache. I am using nginx as my front end web server. A little googling turned up an nginx module http://wiki.nginx.org/XSendfile that uses a very similar concept... so the same idea may work for me. Thanks for the idea!... read more »

  • Making SOAP Web Service Requests With ColdFusion And CFHTTP

    Posted on Feb 24, 2010 at 11:54 AM

    @Jo, I eventually got mine working by writing a "proxy" in coldfusion that forwards to the real SOAP service (since CF doesn't let you expose a lot of the guts of it.) That way I can monkey with the XML any way I please, on the way in and out. It was a pain, but ultimately I got everything working... read more »

For this particular web service, I'm trying to conform to an incoming SOAP call (from a .NET platform) that was alrea... read more »

    Do you take a similar approach for publishing (as opposed to calling) web services in CF? I've pretty much come to the same conclusion that you have-- CF lets you customize a lot of things, but more often then not, not quite enough to get things actually working. We have a running joke around here... read more »

  • CFHTTPSession.cfc For Multi-CFHttp Requests With Maintained Session

    Posted on Dec 17, 2009 at 3:37 PM

    Just found a small bug in the CFHTTPSession component; Passing in a different UserAgent to the Init or SetUserAgent functions causes an exception. This is caused because the SetUserAgent function has the wrong Argument name. (Value instead of UserAgent.) Easy enough to fix-- I guess nobody has u... read more »
