You may have noticed that my blogging has been really scarce lately. I have been super stressed at work and racing for some deadlines that are coming up on me very soon. This stress is not only eating up my free time, it has eaten up my creativity. I can't seem to get the juices flowing knowing that I have so much to do. The whole thing has put a bit of a hamper on my mood. Hopefully, I can just muscle through this and get my work done.
But, I have been getting some good stuff done. I have been working on the ColdFusion custom tags for my Excel creation with the POI library. It's actually proving easier than I thought. I already have the tags working for basic multi-sheet creation with output to either a file path and/or a ColdFusion variable (as a Byte Array Output Stream)- just about what the POIUtility.cfc was capable of doing. Now, I have to start adding in the bells and whistles like CSS support and date / number formatting as well as sheet-based query support to allow alternate output.
It might be rocky over the next week or two, but I will try to get back in the blogosphere.
