Recursively Counting files by Extension on Mac or Linux [+]
ColdFusion, Java, and Web Development | 10/9/19 5:00 PM | Linux
Back in 2004 I wrote up a blog entry showing how to get a count of files by a specific extension, for example if I want to know how many js files are in a directory, you can run this: find /some/dir | fgrep -c '.js' The -c in grep tells it to count the matches, I'm using fgrep here because I'm not using a regex (to avoid escaping the dot). The above would also match a file, or a direct

Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2019 [+]
Matthew J. Clemente | 10/9/19 8:00 AM
I had the opportunity to present two sessions at this year’s Adobe ColdFusion Summit in Las Vegas - the first on Docker Swarm, the second on CFML API wrappers. While I’d given both previously, these were updated versions - there’s always room for improvement and changes in this space can happen with disconcerting speed. As in years past, preparing for the talks took up more time than anticipated and prevented me from blogging

Error after accessing ColdFusion Administrator using connector port [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 10/9/19 2:00 AM | Adobe ColdFusion 2016, Adobe ColdFusion 2018, apache, connector, iis, isapi_redirect.dll
Users who had installed Update 5 of ColdFusion (2018 release) and Update 12 of ColdFusion (2016 release) encountered an error after they’d tried accessing the ColdFusion Administrator using their connector port. The issue was reported by a few users that it might impact all their websites. This issue appears if and only if you access the ColdFusion Administrator using the web server port. We strongly recommend that you access ColdFusion Administrator

South of Shasta | 10/9/19 1:30 AM | ColdFusion, ColdFusion Summit, Notes
Pro tip: when Brad Wood is giving a talk at a conference, make attending said talk a priority -- you'll learn a lot. But also take notes, because he'll throw a ton of info at you in rapid fire succession interspersed with jokes, delivered just as quickly. I think it's all the Mountain Dew. ;)

Who's had more vulns, take 3: Java, ColdFusion, ROR, .NET [+]
Coder's Revolution | 10/8/19 4:36 PM | Uncategorized
There's a fair amount of disingenuity, or perhaps just willful ignorance to the statistics here and I talk to a lot of people who are astonished that CFML is still in use due to the alleged massive numbers of vulnerabilities. One would think simply touching the code might give you rabies. SomeCFers suggestedthat it's a form of "virtue signalling" by infosec professionals to throw CF under the bus, winking at each other over there shared distaste for a platform they have little knowledge of but a

Alternatives to Query of Query [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 10/8/19 3:00 PM | Blog, ColdFusion, Modern CFML, 2018, blog, modern cfml
CFML has had Query of Queries for years and it’s been a useful tool but in modern CFML there is no need to use it at all. Before I go any further I should point out that if you are working with query objects then it’s likely that that best place to do sorting, filtering etc is directly in the database. Database engines are designed and optimised for these kinds of operations. With that disclaimer out the way, let’s start off with some interesting data (normally

Thoughts on the ColdFusion Specialist Program In-Person Segment [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 10/8/19 3:00 PM | Blog, ColdFusion, Training, blog, cfsummit, training
So the in person portion of the specialist program was during the pre-conference day of the ColdFusion Summit.  The first tip I can give is to get there early if you are doing the specialist program.  Adobe sprung for some pretty sweet hoodies for those in the program.  They have Adobe ColdFusion Specialist stitched on the front with the Adobe logo on the arms.  Unfortunately, I did not get there in time for my size but a friend at the conference graciously gave me his.  I cannot say if they

Replacing QueryConvertForGrid with Window functions and Common Table Expressions [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 10/8/19 3:00 PM | Application Performance, Blog, Performance, application performance, blog, performance, SQL
I was digging through some code recently and discovered that it was using the QueryConvertForGrid function. It looked something like this (yes it was written back in the day when cfgrid and Hungarian notation was all the rage!): <cffunction name="getRecords" output="false" access="remote"> <cfargument name="page" default="1" type="numeric"> <cfset local.pageSize = 10> <cfquery name="local.qData" datasource="whatever"> select id, na

Thoughts on the ColdFusion Specialist Program Online Segment [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 10/8/19 3:00 PM | Blog, ColdFusion, Training, blog, cfsummit, training
So I finished the ColdFusion Specialist videos.  The program consists of online and an in-person components.  The online training videos came out about mid September and all participants were required to complete this portion prior to the actual class on the day before the CF Summit.  I was only a few minutes into the first video when I realized Nolan Erck was the instructor.  He has presented on CF at pretty much every conference I have attended and gives great sessions so I knew the content

An associate and I were just conferring on the number of nuggets we get from these summits. The Adobe products crew & engineers seem to be enhancing the platform in useful and meaningful ways.  It’s always intriguing to see how other developers leverage the platform with with emerging technologies and solutions. I’ve been assured by the Adobe folks that a Coldfusion 2020 Summit will be held again in Las Vegas and I encourage Coldfusion developers to plan

Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 10/8/19 3:00 PM | CF2018 Updates, ColdFusion 2018, Question, 2018, cf2018 updates, coldfusion 2018, question
We are running CF2018 Update 3 with external web server (Apache) and we are getting ready to update the server to Update 5. I understand that I’ll have to upgrade to Update 4 before we go to 5. I was reading through documentation (https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/kb/coldfusion-2018-update-5.html#Connectorconfiguration) and it says that we have to “Recreate Connector”. A

Ben Nadel demonstrates the differences in the way that Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee CFML 5.2.9.40 handle empty lists in the CFQueryParam tag. In Lucee CFML, the query "fails silently" (so to speak), returning an empty recordset....

Building your own Disqus Recent Comments Widget [+]
Gregory Alexander | 10/8/19 1:30 AM | Disqus Integration
Background Disqus's commenting system is one of the most popular free blog plugin's in the world right now. It allows blog users to log in using various social media services such as Facebook and Twitter, and offers a bevy of tools and comment moderation features. Most of the popular open source blogs (now including Galaxie Blog) have optional built in Disqus integration. However, what if you as the developer want to implement Disqus into your own custom software or blog?
