  • Explicitly Ending A ColdFusion Session

    Posted on Sep 9, 2013 at 2:44 PM

    I have used the second technique of setting the max inactive timer. In CF9, I would set a low sessionTimeout and then increase the inactive timer when the person was legitimately logged in. This allowed sessions to quickly die when no longer needed. This doesn't seem to work in CF10. Has the CF10 be... read more »

  • Parsing CSV Data With An Input Stream And A Finite State Machine

    @Ben, I've tried a number of things, and the best I could come up with was breaking the array of lines down and using a seperate thread for each chunk. I've tried even interacting with GC to encourage collection (I don't like doing this) but I'm not sure CF releases memory until after the request i... read more »

    Ben, good post. I'll have to see if it works on my ginormous files. The conditions I'm seeing relate to CF not giving up heap space during request process, so no matter how I read it, I still run out. Sure would be nice to have a Lex/Yacc for CF when it comes to parsing files. While creating FSM by ... read more »

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

    Posted on Jul 22, 2011 at 10:19 AM

    @Ben, I'll think about the event driven approach as well. I've found his problem has more to do with when CF releases memory which I think you've raised before. I've even tried manually forcing garbage collection (a practice I don't like or recommend). Some has suggest running sections of code in th... read more »

    Ben, have you measured the impact on heap space? The speed is impressive, but I'm running into heap issues. You had mentioned some large datasets, but when I tried going over 10K records, I run out of heap when using CF8 Standard with a heap size of 768MB. When I monitor the heap as the test program... read more »
