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.
I’ve fallen a bit behind in updating my site with new articles. The following is a list of the new articles I’ve written at Community MX:
- Communicating with the Server without Reloading the Page
- ColdFusion MX 7: Form Validation
- Using Java and ColdFusion to Read the Metadata in JPEG Files
- ColdFusion Form Validation
- Using XML to UI With JSAPI in Flash
You can also see an updated list on my Published Works page.
I have a new article at Community MX that covers how you can use XSLT with ColdFusion and ASP.NET.
The article covers the creation of the XSLT document and code samples for performing a server-side transformation in either ColdFusion or ASP.NET.
Macromedia recently released an AS2 version of their Flash Remoting Components. You can download them here. They are also offering the source code for download. It will be exciting to see how the community extends these classes.
