I’ve got a Dell that shipped with Vista. I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a 2nd hard drive and had it install Grub so I could boot between the two. After playing games on Vista, I rebooted to do some work in Ubuntu. The machine wouldn’t boot due to Grub error 17, but after doing something stupid it booted just fine.
Since ColdFusion 6, it’s been possible to run on 64-bit systems with 64-bit JVMs, just not officially. (If you’re nice, I’ll post how later.) 64-bit support was officially introduced for ColdFusion with version 8, but only for Solaris SPARC. As of the 8.0.1 release, Adobe gave us offical support for 64-bit on Windows, Linux and OSX.
I’ve done this countless times, yet I can never seem to remember how I did it the next time I need the code. This is so I don’t have to hit up Google next time.
I’ve always appreciated the effort that Stephen Collins put into creating The ACME Guide, which takes you through the steps of setting up a local ColdFusion development environment. This is my walk through of setting up the latest and greatest ACME stack under 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04.
I’m 2 weeks into my new job and I just started working on a project that requires Ajax. After using CFAjax for so long, I figured I’d give AjaxCFC a go. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, but I’ve been bashing my head against the wall for a while with this error. Took me forever to find the real cause.
I know there are a lot of tutorials that use this technique. I also know there’s a lot of inherited code (in any language) that contains this SQL. I also also know that - years ago - I too was a slave to SELECT MAX(id). But this is the 21st century and you need to stop using it.
My parents don’t much care for Vista, so after I got their XP machine up and running, they gave me the Dell Dimension E520 they’d bought and were hardly using. I added 2Gb of RAM and a new video card to it with no problems, but when I tried to add a second hard drive for ubuntu, I ran into a snag.
We recently* discussed how use a DAO to map a single record from a single database table to a Bean Object under a one to many relationship. Now we need to discuss how to use a DAO to populate a Bean with data from multiple tables under a many to many relationship.
I’ve been chasing down a CFLOOP timeout error in one of our apps that escaped our rewrite project. After searching through code for 3 weeks, var scoping a bunch of CFCs and wading through a ton of business logic I think I found the culprit.
I ran into this question on the Adobe forums. I’ve answered it about 6 times recently so here’s how to backup your data sources, mappings and other settings in ColdFusion Administrator.
