I am converting old Access DB’s to SQL and writing a CF app.  I want to print a report that returns shipments per week.  How can I query a table with a ship date of 06/04/2019 and return everything that needs to be shipped in that week?  The daily WHERE statement is WHERE shipdate = ‘#DateFormat(Now(), “mm/dd/yyyy”)#’ The post Query by week appeared first on

The .NET framework is one of the web’s most popular developing platforms. It consists of many different languages under one umbrella framework.  C# is one of these languages. Others include VB.NET and F#. It gets a lot of support as a great general programming language. But is it really that great?  Let’s take a look at a few points of comparison between C# and Adobe ColdFusion.

Breaking up character sequences using a regular expression [+]

There was a question asked on the CFML Slack channel recently which I answered. I thought I’d share it here in case it’s useful for others. The problem was that the user had a string which was composed of 6 digit sequences of characters. As there was no delimiters the user wanted to know how to get each ‘chunk’ of 6 digit sequences. Here’s an example of the string they had: ab12ergr3eba23erca The desired output is the following arr

Kinky Solutions | 6/6/19 4:00 PM | ColdFusion, Work
Ben Nadel attempts to sum up his entire mental model for application architecture as of June 2019, including Controllers, Workflows, Entities, and Gateways. This is a topic he struggles with a great deal; and, continues to refine and codify over time. His only hope is that he is somewhat better today than he was yesterday....

we’re in a segregated enterprise network environment.  i’m trying to figure out how to get my workstation connected to our dev server.  I’m running PMT on localhost, I go to Settings and CF servers and add a new manual entry.   I put in the DNS name for the dev server and port 8500.  but when I submit changes, it attempts but fails to connect to the remote node.    I can open http://dev-server:8500/CFIDE/Administrator/index.cfm  from a browser on my workstation and get the C

arrayReduce – intialvalue vs default argument value [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 6/4/19 9:30 AM | Blog, Language, Member Functions, 2018, blog, language, member functions
I was playing with some code that used arrayReduce to sum the values in an array. Not terribly exciting, here it is: function sumReducer(accumulator, el) { return accumulator + el; } function assert(actual, expected) { if (actual==expected) { writeOutput("PASS"); } else { writeOutput("FAIL: expected: `#expected#` got `#actual#`"); } } data = [1,2,3,4,5]; actual = data.reduce(sumReducer, 0); assert(actual, 15); This does wha

I was looking at the replace in-built function and noticed that it now accepts a callback. Here is the example that is shown on the docs. myStr = "happy app application apply appreciate appreciation Apprentice"; outStr = replace( myStr, "app", function ( transform, position, original ) { return UCase( transform ); }, "all" ); writeoutput( outStr );

CF: A Legacy of Legacy [+]
Michael Born - Web dev and such | 6/3/19 8:30 AM
I've seen a lot of discussions revolving around ColdFusion and whether it is inherently a "legacy" language. There are dozens of blog posts proclaiming the death of the language, and every comment seems to share a story about just how "legacy" CF is. Today, I'd like to look closely at why so many dare to call us a legacy language, and what we can do about that. The Definition Let me back up and explain what I me

How to Install and Manage Multiple Versions of Java (hint: jabba and jEnv) [+]
Matthew J. Clemente | 5/31/19 5:30 PM
One of my goals for the coming months is to improve my proficiency with Java; that is, to put some real knowledge behind my current patchwork understanding, pieced together over the years via trial-and-error. Before diving into Java training courses on Udemy, Youtube, etc, I wanted to make sure that I had a way to use different versions of the JDK on my machine. This was due, at least in part, to the
