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 [...]
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 [...]
Ever since last year, we’ve setup subversion to require comments are added before a file can be committed to our SVN repositories. Even just small comments on file commits is helpful.
But what I REALLY want is a subversion hook that requires a file is unit tested before it can be submitted to the repository. Think [...]
I think around the time of ColdFusionMX 6, the inline CF debugger went downhill. It became incredibly slow to the point of being unusable on many applications. It became common knowledge to simply disable it because it could very quickly bog down a CF server.
A couple years ago I wrote my own version of the [...]
Seems there’s a lot of ColdFusion sites out there getting hit by an automated SQL Injection attack, which adds a “<script>” tag to varchar fields using a bit of SQL Server t-sql.
Many years ago, I wrote a script that would find and automatically <cfqueryparam> queries (which has been at Daryl’s ColdFusion Primer. I’ve dug [...]
I’m a recent switcher, having used Windows for, well, ever. So far, the switch has been painless, and I’m only using XP in VMWare for SQL Server 2000 and 2005, including the studio tools.
But it’s the little daily things that are tripping me up. I learned ifconfig as the replacement for ipconfig, I’m getting comfortable [...]
Someone in #flex was talking about how there were no good examples for doing uploads with Flex and ColdFusion. Sounded like an excellent topic to cover here. Now this example is a tiny bit more complex than previous examples, because I needed to cover two methods of functionality: single file uploads and multi-file uploads. Both [...]
In my previous post we looked at getting a list of calendars using the Google API. We looked at how to make the request, but not what to do with the data Google sends back.
When you make a request for a list of calendars, Google sends the list back in an xml format. Some of [...]
Before we handle the methods for editing a calendar, we need to make sure we’re editing the correct calendar. To do that we need to get a list of the calendars from Google. This method we’ll look at today is very simple. So, let’s jump right into the code.
We start with our usual two login [...]
Now that we have finished with the crazy method of obtaining all the various tokens for accessing the Google API, let’s jump into our first Google Calendar API method. We will start by using the Google Calendar API to create a new calendar. This method is very straight forward. It’s just a matter of correctly [...]
