Wanted CF Dead or Alive [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 9/21/18 5:00 AM | Blog, ColdFusion
It’s almost impossible to type ColdFusion into a search bar and avoid a google suggestion, ”Is ColdFusion dead?” Sometimes it seems that ColdFusion is being targeted by one of those old Wild West Wanted Posters that say “Wanted, Dead or Alive”: I was so tired of seeing and hearing about CF dying that I wrote a book called “CF Alive: Makin

Using OSGI To Load A Conflicting Jar Into Lucee Server [+]
Coder's Revolution | 9/20/18 8:01 PM | Java, Lucee
This post calls in the category of something that took me several hours to figure out and other people are likely to figure it out on their own and I'm likely to forget it if I don't write it down! The problem is if you have a jar file with some 3rd party library that you want to use in Lucee. Often times this works great, but other times the dependencies of that library may conflict with other jars already loaded into the classpath for Lucee, its bundled libs, or the servlet container. Jar Dep

How to get the checksum for a file on Windows [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 9/20/18 1:00 PM | windows, basics
If you're running Windows and ever want to know the md5 checksum for a file you have, did you know there's a built-in command to get it: certutil -hashfile [path\]filename md5 The tool is built into Windows 7 and above, and Server 2008 and above (at least).

Regardless of what OS you use, for more on why knowing the checksum can be useful (and why comparing file sizes instead may no

Using AWS Transcribe in CFML: Starting a Transcribe Job [+]
Brian Klass | 9/18/18 7:00 AM
There are three distinct phases in working with AWS Transcribe: starting a job, waiting for the job to complete, and parsing the results of the job. This is because Transcribe is a fully asynchronous service. Transcribe cannot transcribe an hour long video in miliseconds. It takes time to do the work. In this post, I’ll show you how to start a Transcribe job and explore some of the options available to you. As always when workin

XopherMedia | 9/17/18 7:00 PM | Adobe, Adobe ColdFusion, business solutions, CFML, CFScript, Developers, Lucee, Mura, open source, startup, Web Server
The first thing that usually comes to mind when open source software is brought up is that it's free.  Yay! There are different interpretations of what "free" means to your business. From the free operating systems to free CRMs and free bookkeeping software, open source has plenty of options these days. If you can't quite afford to buy Office licenses for all your employees, you can consider the open source LibreOffice option. In this way, getting up and starting your business means you're

Using AWS Transcribe in CFML: Overview and Creating the Transcribe Service Object [+]
Brian Klass | 9/14/18 2:30 PM
AWS offers a host of machine learning services that you can tap into from within CFML. A CFML engine isn’t neccessarily the best fit for doing machine learning, so I like to leave the heavy, undifferentiated lifting of setting up and training a machine learning infrastructure to people who really know what they are doing. In my last series of posts, I detailed

From 2012 to 2013, vulnerable Adobe ColdFusion servers fell under attack by British hacker Lauri Love and hacktivist group Anonymous. Operation Last Resort, as it was named by Anonymous, affected many government servers including those of NASA, the US Army, and the Federal Reserve. How was all of this achieved? Love and Anonymous employed a tactic known as SQL Injection to infiltrate “secure” databases. In October 2013, Love was arrested and had his assets a
