Building My First ColdBox Modules

Ok, the title isn’t entirely accurate. The process discussed here isn’t so much “building” a module as “adding ColdBox functionality” to an existing ForgeBox package - boxifying it, one might say. I’ve never built a ColdBox application, but I’ve been increasingly interested in the framework, so this was a helpful and straightfoward first step toward better understanding it.

On ColdFusion and its support for Java 9, 10, and 11

Wondering about CF support for Java 9, 10, or 11, here in 2018 (with respect to CF 2018, CF 2016, CF 11, or earlier)? Did you know that Java 9 and Java 10 each have only 6-month lives? Seriously. And did you know that Java 9 is already no longer updated, while Java 8 still is (into next year), and that Java 11 is due to come out in September 2018? It can be quite confusing if you’ve not been paying attention to Oracle’s new release model.

Command line CommandBox install:

bash -c "$(curl -fsS bit.ly/2Ki6jPp)"

PS. But what self-respecting Mac user doesn’t use Homebrew?

brew install commandbox

:slight_smile: http://brewformulas.org/commandbox

component {    
    this.tag.cflocation.addtoken = false;
    function onRequest(targetPage){
        location url="google.com";

An oldie but a goodie…
