ColdFusion Alive and Well – eWeek Article

Filed under: Business of Software, ColdFusion, General Development, Performance — Patrick Quinn @ 12:59 pm
I recently posted an article about ColdFusion performance myths (“(Bollox to) ColdFusion is Slow“), and a related myth we hear quite often is in the “ColdFusion is dying” category (or even more amusing is the already-dead variation). If you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a piece in eWeek magazine showcasing ColdFusion. I’m an eWeek subscriber, [...]

When ColdFusion Hits The Wall

Filed under: ColdFusion, Performance — Patrick Quinn @ 4:18 pm
There’s an immutable law of the performance engineering universe, and it’s this: Performance degrades linearly, up to a point, and then it degrades exponentially. In other words, every server has a wall, and will hit it, eventually. As we’ve seen on thousands of servers over the years in providing our ColdFusion performance engineering services, a [...]

(Bollox to) ColdFusion is Slow

Filed under: ColdFusion, Databases, JVM & Java, Performance, SeeFusion — Patrick Quinn @ 12:50 pm
We’ve been hearing the “ColdFusion is slow” nonsense for as long as the platform as been around. (Quick history tidbit: We still have support emails from back when Jeremy Allaire was sending them himself!) In our opinion, whenever someone repeats this tripe, that person is instantly branded a software novice, and, probably, one with an [...]

ColdFusion Heroes

Filed under: ColdFusion, Fusebox, General Development, JVM & Java, Macintosh, Performance, SeeFusion — Patrick Quinn @ 5:47 pm
As leading ColdFusion performance engineers and application development specialists, we’re pretty good at what we do. Still, it’s comparatively unglamorous work that we do, focused as it is on recondite topics like software frameworks and Java memory utilization patterns. We’ve got thousands of happy customers of our ColdFusion support and development services, and our SeeFusion [...]

ColdFusion Support Plans

Filed under: Business of Software, ColdFusion, Miscellaneous, Performance — Patrick Quinn @ 2:12 pm
For the past decade, our team here at Webapper has been delivering specialized software services focused on ColdFusion performance and stability. Up until now, we had only offered that expertise in the form of “retail” consulting services. This model works roughly like conventional medicine–wait until you’re sick, then call a doctor. Sure, docs can do [...]

Improve ColdFusion Performance by 1000x? Believe Me, It’s Possible.

Filed under: ColdFusion, General Development, Performance, SeeFusion — Tyson Vanek @ 11:19 am
Not only is it possible, but I spend most of my time every week doing this for our Webapper customers. As we all know, businesses and their supporting web applications are constantly changing and adapting. With any luck, change is in the direction of growth, and adaptation simply becomes a component necessary to keep up [...]

ColdFusion Request Tuning Settings in Depth

Filed under: ColdFusion, Performance — Steven Erat @ 3:17 pm
Undoubtedly, the ColdFusion Administrator settings for Request Tuning are critical to performance of Web applications running in the server. While reading the recent Adobe article on Performance Tuning for ColdFusion Applications I was surprised to find the content on this topic to be a little light. With that in mind, I set out to [...]

CreateUUID() : Friendly Function or Server Killer?

Filed under: ColdFusion, JVM & Java, Performance, SeeFusion, Windows — Tyson Vanek @ 1:29 am
=============================== July 2010 Update: Please review Charlie Arehart’s comments below about important ColdFusion 9-specific updates to this function. =============================== Ok, so I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking I must be crazy for suggesting that a simple built-in unique randomization function could somehow be instrumental in crashing a ColdFusion server, right?  Well, before you go calling me a [...]
