Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 12/11/18 10:30 AM | ColdFusion, Discussion, Modern CFML, discussion, modern cfml
Programming with Adobe ColdFusion is like creating a masterpiece.  We, as developers are creative; solving problems and crafting with code the way an artist would with oil and canvas.  I sincerely believe that it is the desire of every developer to not only create something wonderful, but to create it in a simple, elegant, and beautiful way. I have a keen appreciation for software (and hardware) design aesthetic.  I feel a sense of awe when I come across an application and I can tell t

Estimating AWS EC2 EBS Snapshots [+]
Chris Tierney | 12/10/18 4:30 PM | AWS, Uncategorized
Estimating and understanding what AWS EC2 EBS Snapshots will cost you can be more difficult than you may think. Here are some key points to keep in mind: Snapshots are not compressed. Therefore your first snapshot will be equal to the GiB used in the source EBS volume. Additional snapshots are incremental. Each incremental snapshot uses pointers, pointing to the prior snapshot’s blocks that have not changed. New blocks are recorded. You can use the AWS Co

Brian Klass | 12/10/18 9:00 AM
In most of my posts on using AWS services from within CFML, I’ve pointed to my original post on how to use the AWS Java SDK from within your CFML engine. However, the information on that page about the required .jar files for using the AWS Java SDK no longer applies to the Adobe ColdFusion 2018 release. If you are running Adobe Co

Imagine this… there’s three big banks in the world.  That’s it.  A huge, for-profit, commercial bank that controls most of the money in the world, a second, scrappy for-profit bank that’s trying to compete with that first bank, and a third non-profit bank that has a tremendous amount of support and love from the community, but doesn’t have the pockets of the for-profit banks.  Now imagine that scrappy bank goes under.  Competition suffers.  More pressure is put o

Quick tip: escaping string literals in dateTimeFormat() [+]

Just a quick tip since this I didn’t find this to be well documented anywhere and someone else probably has this exact same problem.  Frequently, I display time and date on a page.  I used to do it like so: #dateFormat(now(),'dddd, mmmm d, yyyy')# at #timeFormat(now(),'h:mm tt')# …but why use two functions when you can use one, right?  So I tried using the following: #dateTimeFormat(now(),'dddd, mmmm d, yyyy at h:mm tt')# But got briefly stuck w

Kinky Solutions | 12/9/18 5:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates how he uses a "drag shield" to act as an "event sink" during a drag-and-drop operation in his Angular 7.1.2 application. The drag shield gets rendered over the entire viewport during the drag operation so as to prevent mouse events from hitting lower-level DOM elements....

Burst Throttling on AWS API Gateway Explained [+]
ColdFusion, Java, and Web Development | 12/7/18 10:00 AM | Web
One nice feature of AWS API Gateway is that you can configure or Throttle the Burst (requests) and Rate (requests per second). The first time I looked at that it was not really clear to me how the Burst (requests) throttling works. What is the Burst? The Burst limit is quite simply the maximum number of concurrent requests that API gateway will serve at any given point. So it is y

Back in the day, I was all in on the Commodore Amiga.  In the late 80’s / early 90’s it was a beast of a machine.  Imagine a 14 megahertz processor that could power full screen 600 x 400 animation at a full thirty frames a second, and without breaking the budget.  I had two machines… an Amiga 500 and an Amiga 2000 that

We are running CF10 and CF2016 on jre1.8.0_191, however after the first of the year it appears that Java won’t be available with paying for it.  Is there a plan to either get CF on Java 11 or get users the new patches?  I have also experimented with Corretto on CF10 and CF2016 and that looks promising, is there going to be support for Corretto? The post Amazon Corr

Using The "Definite Assignment Assertion" To Define Required Input Bindings In Angular 7.1.1 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 12/6/18 2:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel looks at the "Definite Assignment Assertion" introduced in TypeScript 2.7. This assertion makes it possible to declare input bindings as "required" on an Angular Directive without having to fully initialize the internal class property.
