My first ForgeBox ColdBox module manages the Lucee server admin scheduled tasks through a responsive Bootstrap 4 front-end UI.
Using NewRelic’s Java Agent API I was able to log custom user metrics to their system and then query it using NRQL for creating dashboards.
AppDynamics allows the addition of custom user metrics to their stored analytics through Java, so it’s easy to implement that functionality in ColdFusion.
QB tries to automatically figure out what ColdFusion SQL type to use for updates and inserts based on the actual value that is passed in for each column. Although that works for most of the cases, I ran into an issue where my value type was being wrongly inferred so I needed to figure out how to override it.
Making use of the preQBExecute() and postQBExecute() QB interception points I can capture the actual SQL getting generated and running against my database.
Although CommandBox ColdFusion instances run for just the duration of your OS session and for only one user by default, I use the Non Sucking Service Manager (NSSM) module through a Task Runner to create a Windows Service to run things under it, making the app available to everyone and persistent over OS reboots.
Using Homebrew makes it generally very easy to upgrade CommandBox on a Mac, albeit with some possible gotchas.
A project that allows the sending of ZPL data to a label printer using ColdFusion and Java. The label printer can be installed either as a network IP printer or on a computer as part of its available printers.
A quick look into how the WordPress posts tables are set up and a custom view query that can be used outside of php to loop through the posts or pages.
We can use Java’s Alpha transparency funtionality together with native ColdFusion image functions to slice images diagonally. Let’s take a look at how to do this and then how to join 2 images diagonally to be used in a slider.
