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.
A reader of my OOCF Primer asks: “Instead of having multiple cfc’s can one have just 1 cfc?” The answer is: it depends.
