  • ColdFusion Client For The Word-Finding Datamuse API

    Posted on Jul 25, 2018 at 8:49 PM

    No, the "new" keyword is nothing more than a shortcut for creating CFC instances. There is a generic way to call any tag in script, but that's a different thing entirely.... read more »

  • ColdFusion Client For The Word-Finding Datamuse API

    Posted on Jul 25, 2018 at 8:11 PM

    Charles, all the same variable scoping rules apply to cfscript the same as tags. Really no difference there. The new keyword is the same as doing createObject( 'component', 'lib.DatamuseClient' ).init()... read more »

    Need to get your awesome API on ForgeBox to make it easier for others to install, update, and use. Would you like me to send you a pull to add the box.json to your repo? Then all you'll need to do is: forgebox login bump --major :)... read more »

  • Spiders Are Tricking My Session Management

    Posted on Oct 24, 2007 at 2:40 PM

    Can you tell if any of those "sneaky" spiders over look for robots.txt? I've always wanted to mess around with mod rewrite or something to funnel robots.txt through CF so I can better pin down requests coming from spiders. Of course, that ASSUMES they even bother looking for robots.txt. If they... read more »

  • ColdFusion 8's New Nested Query Loop Behavior (Thanks Rick Osborne)

    Posted on Jun 11, 2007 at 9:51 AM

    I think it is good that Adobe fixed that "feature" (read bug) whcih has been in CF too long. Of course, this is just the subtle type of butt biting change that can make that one important page of your site start behaving differently after you upgrade and you JUST can't figure it out... haha. Kno... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 8: Implicit Struct And Array Creation

    Posted on Jun 5, 2007 at 11:28 AM

    Is it "attributescollection"? I thought that was an pre-exising input to custom tags. I thought the new one was "argumentscollection". At least, that's what I wrote down in my note's from Ben Forta's presentation to my user group.... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 8: CFThread Part IV - Cross-Page Thread References

    Posted on Jun 5, 2007 at 11:01 AM

    So, since the application struct is only copy of the actual threads at the time of their creation I assume you wouldn't be able to view error informtion, or terminate the threads, etc. Is there no way to reference the thread directly after it has been kicked off and the request which created it has... read more »

  • Updating In-Memory (Temporary) SQL Tables With UPDATE / DELETE Clauses

    Posted on Jun 1, 2007 at 6:07 PM

    It's probably worth noting that table variables (@temp) in MS SQL are stored in RAM, as opposed to regular temp tables (#temp) are stored in the tempdb and require disk I/O. I use table variables when handling under 3000 records or so. Any larger and SQL Server will automatically start swapping da... read more »

  • Passing Arrays By Reference In ColdFusion - SWEEET!

    Posted on Sep 19, 2006 at 10:20 AM

    That IS pretty sweet. How come one of the arrays has 6 more items than the other at the end of the test? Did they not start off empty? I'm curious how this test scales. In other words, if you did 10,000 manipulations of a small array, if the difference would be as big. I assume that the norm... read more »
