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 [...]
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 [...]
One of the advantages of our decades of combined experience is speed—we identify, prioritize and fix the causes of performance and stability problems as quickly and effectively as humanly possible. If you’ve got ColdFusion performance and/or stability problems, and you haven’t yet hired us for consulting, then I’d like to invite you to try our [...]
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 [...]
SeeDSN is utility that I’ve been using internally with our SeeFusion customers for years in order to assist with configuring JDBC wrapped datasources that can be monitored via SeeFusion. The utility was originally developed for Webapper by Daryl Banttari, but it was never officially released to the public – until today. Recently I was on [...]
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 [...]
SeeFusion 4.0.7 is now available for download at http://www.seefusion.com.
Primarily, this update removes the need for the JDI debug settings that were required to produce stack traces with version of ColdFusion before 8, which ran on Java 1.4. (There is no change for ColdFusion 6/7, which still require JDI to gather stack traces under Java [...]
ColdFusion 8.0 added the ability to specify a “validation query” that will be run every time a connection is reused in a connection pool. This is useful in cases where database servers or firewalls sometimes drop connections without warning, as it causes a new connection to be made to the database server for the [...]
Hey all. Just wanted to let everyone know that we’re nominated for SysCon’s Readers’ Choice awards (CFDJ and WebDDJ) for our consulting services and for our SeeFusion tool. Our consulting services are in the Best Consulting Service category (duh), and SeeFusion is in the Best Web Development Tool and Most Innovative Application categories (you can [...]
If you’re here at MAX, just a quick reminder that we’ll be doing our SeeFusion demo at MAXUP this morning right after the keynote address. We’ll be giving away lots of swag–tshirts and free software. See you there!
