  • Making SOAP Web Service Requests With ColdFusion And CFHTTP

    Posted on Jan 2, 2012 at 10:46 AM

    Hi Ben Just an fyi. I ended up building a new CFC using the org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultHttpClient with javaloader to maintain the session as the cookies are handled on the back end while posting multiple different requests back and forth with the NetSuite API. This has allowed us to use t... read more »

    Hi Ben I am attempting to use the NetSuite Webservice API's ssoLogin functionality to maintain a session with cookies' returned from ssoLogin. I have all the code setup and working with raw xml and cfhttp and was attempting to use your smooth CFHTTPSession component to maintain the cookies., I re... read more »

  • Maintaining Sessions Across Multiple ColdFusion CFHttp Requests

    Posted on Dec 7, 2011 at 10:43 AM

    Hey Ben Once again, great work, great code, and thanks. I wondered if you or anyone has ever tried to use this code to persist cookies from a NetSuite API login (or ssoLogin). When posting to the ssologin I do receive back some cookies (JSessionID and NSVer) and I see that they are persisted and ... read more »

  • Populating An Existing, Formatted Excel Document Using ColdFusion And POI

    Posted on Jun 28, 2011 at 2:00 PM

    Ben Certainly could have played around more before asking but found that the variable to save the workbook is set in the document end tag. I simply added to the "start" of the document tag.. cfif Len( ATTRIBUTES.Name ) cfset "CALLER.#ATTRIBUTES.Name#" = VARIABLES.Workbook ... read more »

  • Populating An Existing, Formatted Excel Document Using ColdFusion And POI

    Posted on Jun 24, 2011 at 2:19 PM

    Hi Ben I posted on one of the POI Tag pages about this and then found this post that shows how to loop through a template using the POI Utility , but now that we use the poi custom tags, wondering how you would use a template, replace out cells with tags (e.g. ~~Start Date~~~) with data from a data... read more »

  • POI Utility Freeze Frames, Bug Fixes, And Branded Templates

    Posted on Jun 23, 2011 at 11:06 PM

    Hey Ben Long time no post on one of the various blogs about the POI custom tags for me :) I am attempting to use the tag with a 'template' for the first time to read in a branded file with all sorts of pre-defined cells. What I can't figure out (or find a post about) is how to edit cells that a... read more »

  • Communicating With The Client Whilst Inside A ColdFusion Custom Tag

    Posted on Jan 11, 2011 at 2:00 AM

    Retraction of my last comment. Once I got deep into this and tested big excel files mapping to big new poi:document generated excel files in the cfthread with the loop, things got wierd. I like the session variable, ajax polling method described above and may implement that with some of the poi us... read more »

  • Loading Java Classes With coldfusion.runtime.java.JavaProxy

    Posted on Nov 19, 2010 at 11:19 AM

    Hi Ben (and maybe Mark :) ), I just started using javaloader for the great combine.cfc that combines and minifies and then gzips all static js, css, etc to rapidly shrink the pages our application serves. If you are not using this, I strongly recommend as it is great! I love the portability of th... read more »

  • Communicating With The Client Whilst Inside A ColdFusion Custom Tag

    Posted on Oct 11, 2010 at 4:51 PM

    Yes!! You did it... nice one. For our purposes of creating an Excel file in a popup or modal, using this cfthread method to use the poi custom tag while outputting which piece of information in the process we are on, will work great! Less hits on the server than polling and less overhead than a pu... read more »

  • POI Utility Now Supports Formulas And Cell Aliasing In Custom Tags

    Posted on Jan 13, 2010 at 12:17 AM

    Hi Ben I found a small bug in the custom tags... in cell.cfm on line 214 originally i believe... <cfset VARIABLES.DocumentTag.CellAliases[ "@#ATTRIBUTES.Alias#" ] = ( VARIABLES.DocumentTag.ColumnLookup[ Fix( VARIABLES.RowTag.CellIndex / ArrayLen( VARIABLES.DocumentTag.ColumnLookup ) ) ] & ... read more »

  • POI Utility Now Supports Formulas And Cell Aliasing In Custom Tags

    Posted on Jan 7, 2010 at 11:35 AM

    Hey Ben I've been using your poiutility.cfc for years and really love these new custom tags and rendering!! Another idea/concept that would be real helpful, and not sure if you are developing anymore with this because of cf9 cfspreadsheet or not, but it would be slick if a custom tag was added tha... read more »
