  • ColdFusion Threads Hanging On JDBC Pool CheckIn / CheckOut

    Posted on Jan 28, 2014 at 2:18 PM

    @Mike Brunt - I can't thank you enough for your in depth blog posts on this subject. I have implemented GCViewer and made the other argument changes you posted above with a few changes, and so far our performance is appears to be much improved. We will have to watch it over the weekend when we see o... read more »

  • ColdFusion Threads Hanging On JDBC Pool CheckIn / CheckOut

    Posted on Jan 27, 2014 at 4:51 PM

    Thanks again for this post! Hopefully some of Mike's suggested settings will take away a lot pain and sleepless nights in trying to fix an app that seemingly works well then all of a sudden just hits the wall, then works great again. At least we hopefully will have a tangible explanation to give to ... read more »

  • ColdFusion Threads Hanging On JDBC Pool CheckIn / CheckOut

    Posted on Jan 27, 2014 at 4:39 PM

    This couldn't have been more timely! Our graphs look exactly like this, and we have been pulling out all the stops trying to find a solution. I had a suspicion that it had something to do with the garbage collection. I even switched to the the ParNewGC algorithm as @Justice mentioned as the descri... read more »

  • Paginating Record Sets In ColdFusion With One SQL Server Call

    Posted on Mar 5, 2012 at 4:56 PM

    I know this post is old, but you always seem to have a post for whatever my question may be so I wanted to say thanks a lot. One issue I ran into with this approach was that the insert into the @id table variable was that it wasn't respecting any order by clauses inside the insert sub query. The ap... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Hiding / Encrypting ColdFusion CFID And CFTOKEN Values

    Posted on Dec 15, 2010 at 2:35 PM

    I tested it using your example as a model and was able to hijack a valid session. Once again this is based on the assumption that a user can (possibly) guess (using UUID for tokens as @carehart said makes this more difficult, but still possible ) and/or obtain your secret value in the cookie.ID thro... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Hiding / Encrypting ColdFusion CFID And CFTOKEN Values

    Posted on Dec 15, 2010 at 2:02 PM

    Great post Ben. I have been struggling with this for quite sometime. I disagree that jsessionID is secure. In testing my application I have chrome open and log in as an admin and have firefox open and log in as a limited admin. Go into the content settings of Chrome view the cookies that have been ... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 8: Javascript Object Notation (JSON) Part II - Remote Method Calls

    Posted on Sep 20, 2010 at 3:15 PM

    Love your site Ben. It' open all day everyday in my browser referencing your examples! A little gotcha I'm trying to find a solution to is if there is any way to get CF to return the data for Date fields in a format such as Date(1254891982000) instead of "October, 11 2010 00:00:00", for example. ... read more »

  • CorMVC - My jQuery-Powered Model-View-Controller (MVC) Framework

    Posted on Aug 7, 2010 at 10:41 AM

    @Ben Awesome work here. This looks like a real lifesaver. How would you recommend implementing a login for an administrative area. I have an existing site that I would like to make a back end for. Do I simply create the default route "/" to be the login view if not logged in else show them the main ... read more »

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
