Just a quick note, that I was impressed today to see that more than 500 downloads have been registered for ColdBox since I opened the project back in August. I am really grateful that this framework is having great response even in its infancy.

Thanks again for your support and please continue to support Open Source Projects.

Have a great X-Mas and a happy New Year. May God bless your coding brain cells and soon to be carpetunnel fingers.

Announcing ColdBox Cache!!

This will make some users happy!! I am still on the planning and research phase, but putting a requirements for it, you can look at it here:

ColdBox Cache

Please read the initial ticket and send me your comments and suggestions about this new feature.

Last but not least, (Still tentative)

Event Handler Caching

The framework will give the ability to cache the handlers in memory (application scope). This would give the programmer the opportunity to decide if they want handler instantiations. This now opens a brand new door for the init method of every handler. You can now have instantiation code on them. (Please see the Event Handlers Guide

ColdBox Framework: Should the fwreinit action be protected?

I have had some suggestions for the fwreinit flag to be protected in order to reinitialize the application at hand. What do you think? Is this overkill? The application reinitializes, but it does not crash. It just adds some extra cycles to the request in order to clear and reinit the app.

Please send me your comments, suggestions? Should an application reinit, be password protected?



ColdBox Framework SVN access now available!

I have been deliberating whether to open the SVN repo to anonymous access so people interested in the project can actually test new builds and ideas. Since the framework has been receiving an overwhelming response and my commitment to the project has been growing and brewing. I have decided to open SVN access to the repository. Below you will find the connection information.

CAUTION: checking out the latest builds, means using bleeding edge and probably not yet tested software, use with caution

On another note, I have been giving myself a break from the development process due to the fact of me starting new employment at ESRI. However, as I am getting into a routine now, you will start to see the development process going forward.

I forgot the access info (Ooops):

svn co --username nightlybuild

or via --username nightlybuild

username: nightlybuild

pass: nightlybuild
