Yxplorer: Crawl Around In Your ColdFusion Memory

written by Geoff Bowers on Monday, 5 March, 2007 @ 10:00 PM

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.


Yxplorer was written in Actionscript 2 by Patrick Tai. Patrick is the Daemonite French connection, and Yxplorer is actually "explorer" pronounced with a funny accent. Because its written in AS2 all you need is Flash remoting activated on CFMX 6+ and you can get this little guy to work.

Just download the zip and drop the files somewhere under the web root of your application.

We use the application scope a lot in FarCry, so Yxplorer comes in very handy when you're trying to work out what is where. The little video demo is a quick look at this little blogging application you're reading from.
