I haven’t done anything with ColdFusion in a long time, but I may need to reconsider it as a middle ware between my Flash/Flex/AIR client applications and the database. Adobe released the ColdFusion 9 beta (Centaur) at MAX and one of the features that caught my eye was the object-relationship mapping. This will make it really easy to go from Flex-to-ColdFusion-to-Database using a consistent object model.
I recently published a new article at Community MX about using the file upload and download features in Flash Player 8.
I recently ran across a series of posts on Ben Forta’s blog where he talks about how he built a ColdFusion app that is accessible through various IM interfaces like AIM, Google Talk and Yahoo.
All you need to do is send a tag or function and it will return the reference data from the LiveDocs. Very cool! ;)
I recently published a new article at Community MX titled Working Around the Flash Security Model with a Web Service Proxy.
The article covers how to proxy a web service if it lives on a domain that you don’t have access to from Flash. It uses ColdFusion to create the web service proxy.
I have a new article that was published on Community MX titled Building an XML Configuration File for Your ColdFusion 7 Application. It uses the new Application.cfc technique that was just introduced in ColdFusion 7.
I just published a new article at Community MX today that discusses the new Application.cfc feature of ColdFusion MX 7. I am really excited about this feature as it really helps to arrange application-wide logic into oraganized segments.
