Entries tagged "CFML"
CFML is a dynamic RAD server-side programming language.
It originated as the language powering ColdFusion, but these days there are
two FLOS CFML engines, Open BlueDragon and Railo, both with active development
and innovative features.

The long awaited Railo 3.0 is out of Beta and available to all.
There are a lot of exciting new features with Railo 3.0: multimedia video conversion and manipulation, video player with playlisting, task manager, cluster scope, CF8 compatibility, and more.
Also, with Railo 3.0, the Community and Professional versions have been combined - keeping the price of the Community edition (i.e free), but without the previous restrictions this had. (With Railo 3.1 due later this year, Railo will fully become Free Software, under the LGPL2 license.)
For more details, the best place to head is the rebrushed Railo website, which has been updated to provide information on what is new with Railo 3.0.
There will also be a three part series on the Railo blog covering the new features. The first entry in the series is already available.
The first pre-release version of the qpScanner Eclipse Plugin is now available.
This is the very first Eclipse plugin I have created. It was an interesting
experience, and something that I will be writing up in a separate entry as soon
as I can collect my thoughts.
It order to use the plugin, you must be using v0.7 or higher of qpScanner -
if you do not yet have this, you can download the
development version of qpScanner, which contains details of the Update Site
to use. If for any reason you cannot use the regular Eclipse Update method, you
can directly download the qpScanner Eclipse Plugin instead.
Just to be clear, both v0.7 of QueryParam Scanner and v0.1 of the qpScanner
Eclipse Plugin are currently considered development releases, and are being made
available so that they can be tested and any bugs that might exist can be found
- if you are unwilling to use pre-release software you should wait until the
If you do get the Eclipse Plugin, or even just qpScanner on its own, I
welcome any and all feedback you might have - whether to report bugs you have
found, request new features you would like, or simply to let me know that works
with your local setup.
Please send feedback via the GitHub Issue system.
The latest development version of qpScanner is now in SVN at RIAForge.
It would be great if people could test it out and let me know of any issues they encounter.
As before, it is all self-contained, so it can be installed and run with minimal effort.
Note: As this is still the development version, you need to use the zip option at the bottom of the RIAForge page, not the "Download Project" link - the button will only give the old version.
When released, v0.7 will be a significant new version,
so I want to give a quick discussion of the new features...
I've just encountered a very annoying bug with the expandPath function in CF8.
Take the following code:
<cfset MyDir = "."/>
<cfloop index="i" from="1" to="5">
<cfset MyDir = expandPath(MyDir)/>
Run the code through Railo and you will get exactly the right behaviour, with the current directory output five times:
Now go run the same code with CF8 - and this is what you get:
It simply stacks the current directory onto the front each time. Very frustrating.
In order to get round this, I created a regular expression to pull off the last value of any directory containing more than one colon - this will work for Windows machines, but may need to be changed for Linux or MacOSX machines (if the bug affects these).

As promised previously,
here is a more detailed entry on the announcement to Open Source the Railo CFML engine.
