ColdBox Makes Life Easy Part:5

ColdBox is the first framework to support integrated Unit Testing of the entire application.Test-driven development would help to build software better and stable code base.

I know the test-driven development track is bit complicated and rough route. Most of CF developers mind-set is completely different from test driven development, so initially this will take some time to understand and implement.

I would like to suggest to start learning unit-testing, carry on… Continue

I was just told lately (a week ago) that the developers edition of ColdFusion was free... I downloaded it, implemented it, and have been in awe ever since. HTML was cool, PHP amazing, CF ridiculously uber amazing. The fact that you can create your own images and name them... then email them... then create a pdf on one thread and load the page/progress while doing so, all while querying a database for some other crap, and the user not thinking your site is slow and a POS.

I do small… Continue

Learning Flex

I'm learning flex, finally. So one thought keeps coming to my mind, 'Why did I wait so long?!'

Since I'm a ColdFusion developer, I'm particularly interested in the integration with CF. For now however, I'm doing the crawl before I walk thing. I'm keeping my eyes on the integration of Flex, Life Cycle Data Services, and…

The Beauty of Simplicity

For the past several weeks, I've been working on a very complicated app. I've been working with Maciej, my colleague, and together we've been struggling to keep the whole thing going in our heads.

At the same time, I've been reading a biography of Einstein that concentrates on the Great Man before he had attained his now-exalted status. What I find fascinating is how much Einstein struggled with the different, competing observations and theories before arriving at his breakthrough… Continue

ColdBox Makes Life Easy Part:3

ColdBox as usual provide great tool. Cookie Plugin is really cool, you can store complex values in cookies and also coldbox will encrypt the values for you by just enabling encryption setting . Just a simple one line of code does all this magic for you.

I know its not a rocket science but to be honest the cookie plugin is nearly 200 lines of code but does really amazing job. As these kind of features are supported by community developers which solidify the concept and… Continue

The Coldfusion Outsourcing Equilibrium

Coldfusion outsourcing is initially to see the limits of professional’s arbitrages. Until now, the software industry practiced an free movement of work at offshore outsourcing companies. If the business providers could document the process from that onwards the outsourced companies are getting the profitable amount in their pockets.

From the begging of 1991 the offshore outsourcing process is started from onwards we have significantly… Continue

Is there any room on that bandwagon?

I have been a loyal, nay ardent, HomeSite user, lo these many years. Friends tried to tell me that CFEclipse was great, but it seemed that every time I looked at it, there was something that just didn't fit well. I wasn't even sure what it was. Regardless, I stuck with HomeSite and have been happy.

Recently, though, I had occasion to use Eclipse for Java. I've been using Eclipse for years for Java work, and while I was in the program, I decided to try downloading the CFEClipse… Continue

My baby boy

Just wanted to post a small blog to say that I am back to work officially after my wife had our first child, a beautiful healthly baby boy, Gabriel Edward Kolcz, last Wednesday. He is 2 weeks as of yesterday.

Having a child, as some/most of you know, changes everything in life. I am happy and worried all the time now.

PayPal Cart Integration

Hey guys,I know I haven't been on here in a little while. I'm hoping one of you will have some information on this...A client of mine asked me to integrate PayPal into their existing custom shopping cart. It's just the typical old PayFlow-style, send the browser to PayPal and then bring them back afterward. I read through all the documentation and I've got it creating the form and sending to PayPal and it all works.Now PayPal says form encryption is not required, although they also say you…See More
