Well, Ladies and Gentleman, another beta roundup. This beta includes FULL BlueDragon Support as of version 6.2.X So all you BlueDragon users and fans, this one is for you!!

You can take a look at the following link for some know issues which have to do with external apps out of my control:

ColdBox System Requirements

I also changed the registration mechanisms to a more java oriented recursion and it works great. A few fixes also to some sample applications and more documentation. Ohh, it also includes the OpenSearch plugin and a new ColdBox Wallpaper.

So enjoy this beta. Also as a tease, the next beta will include the ColdBox Dashboard (FINALLY!!) Well, it takes time, so give me a break. I am porting it to JQuery, so that is why it takes so long.

Anyways, Click here to get this beta

Enjoy this beta and leave your comments and suggestions here or in the forums. Also, the guides in the documentation get updated daily until the 2.0.0 final release. And by the way, there are over 100 pages of documentation on the wiki as of today. Wow!! I do like documentation!!

Viva la Documentacion!!

God Bless.

Well ladies and gentleman, another beta build is ready for usage. This beta is stabler than ever and introducing the pre/post handler features. The naming conventions have been re-done and slowly but surely the documentation keeps getting updated. Every day new content is placed in the wiki and will be finalized soon. So please keep checking the documentation.

Another neat feature is that a google search has been added to the site, so you can search all the documentation. This has also been added to the site.

Again, enjoy this build, I expect your comments and suggestions. The final build is almost there.

The binaries can be found by clicking here.

Thanks again,

Proverbs 10:31-32:

31 The mouth of the righteous (those harmonious with God) brings forth skillful and godly Wisdom, but the perverse tongue shall be cut down (as a barren and rotten tree).

32 The lips of the (uncompromisingly) righteous know (and therefore utter) what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked knows (and therefore speaks only) what is obstinately willful and contrary.

God Bless

ColdBox 2.0 New Feature - Pre/Post Event Handlers

Posted by Luis Majano
05 Mar 2007 12:00 AM
I am finalizing the latest beta for 2.0 and it will be available this week. One new feature that will be available is the addition of pre/post event handlers for a requested event.

What does this mean? Well, once an event is requested to the framework, let's say its "ehTools.dspTree". Then the framework will execute the dspTree method in the ehTools event handler.

Now, you can declare two new methods in the ehTools event handler: 1) preHandler 2)postHandler

Inside of those two new methods you will place any logic that will be executed before/after any requested event in that event handler cfc. This is a great way to implicitly run events before and after a requested event. You can even filter the type of logic you would like to execute inside of these methods by looking into the context object and seeing the event that was executed.

This is a great addition to the framework and I expect your comments on this addition. You can find the ticket

Read it and let me know your thoughts
