New Atlanta have open sourced their BlueDragon ColdFusion engine under the GPL2.0 open source license. Why do this? Will it work? How open will it be? What should we do? And what should Adobe do?
Daemon is throwing it's hat in the ring for this years, "Google Summer of Code", in an attempt to get the FarCry code base onto the program. It would be a first for ColdFusion, and with any luck we might get some great projects off the ground. But we need help!
XML style tags... I'm a sucker for their "completeness".
The CFCAMPs in Australia were a great success last November. Thought I might link to the information and notes speakers have provided for the various CFCAMPs across Australia. We're missing a few sessions, but what is there is yours. Enjoy!
Pulse is a nifty service that allows you to install and maintain an Eclipse development environment. Adding additional plugins is as easy as picking from a catalogue. But what if you want to install plugins that aren't on the official list? Well it turns out you can manually install these for each profile on your system.
Recently tasked with getting Flex 1.5 serve up and running on ColdFusion 8 Enterprise with Apache web server. We encountered a few troubles along the way and thought we might jot down some of the issues we faced and what we did to solve them.
One of the new CF8 tags I want to leverage in my Inspire session at MAX is CFPRESENTATION. CF8 commandeers the old Breeze "presenter" engine for generating Flash based presentations that resemble fancy online Powerpoints. As a trainer for Breeze I picked up a few tricks that apply to making the most of this interesting new feature of CF8 -- namely the correct image formats to be included in CFPRESENTER.
Been working on an entertaining demo of what FarCry Core is really all about; building web applications. If you're at MAX be sure to check out my Inspire session on Wednesday after lunch. I'll be around for the week, talking up ColdFusion and the whole FarCry caper.
Yxplorer is a Flashlet and accompanying component that allow you to drill down and explore your session, application and server scopes. Very nifty tool if you've been wondering what's in there. Yxplorer is part of the FarCry framework, but something that can be used on its own just about anywhere.
