SES interceptor update for ColdBox 2.5.1

Posted by Luis Majano

Matt Quackenbush submitted this unusual behavior a few days ago and I was finally able to reproduce and fix today. Here is his excerpt:

If I browse to http://localhost/myApp/index.cfm/main/dspHome (or any other explicitly-called event), everything is good to go. However, if I browse to http://localhost/myApp/ or http://localhost/myApp/index.cfm, an exception is thrown that says:

The event handler: index.cfm.dspHome is not valid registered event.

In the Xmas Spirit: What do you want for ColdBox & The ColdBox Dashboard?

Now that 2.5 is out and the Dashboard 2.2.2 is also out, what do you expect for further releases. Russ Johnson joined team ColdBox and he is brining a tons of new ideas and funky stuff that will blow your mind. But apart from those, what are your expectations on ColdBox? What do you want from this framework AND toolkit!! More plugins? More interceptors? More GUI releated ideas? More debugging tools? What?

Also, what are your thoughts on the ColdBox Dashboard Application? Does it make your life easier to start a project? What features do you want on it? What would make you use the Dashboard as part of your development? (Please note, that the dashboard is separate from the framework)

So give me your thoughts and ideas!!

Problems trying to login to ColdBox Dashboard

Some people have reported not being able to log in to the ColdBox Dashboard. I have reproduced the error and it seems releated with the ses support that is NOT used in the app. So I have registered it as a bug for a patch release on 2.2.3. However, if you would like to make it work, you can do the following:

1. Open the {App}/config/routes.cfm

2. Change the following:

Change it to FALSE

That way the ses interceptor will not be intercepting calls. This is also a good point to mention that if you use the SES interceptor, then you need to code your apps for SES!. You can't have half ses and half not ses. You need to apply the ses best pracitces, especially on form submits.

ColdBox 2.5.1 Patch Released.

I have just release a critical fix for 2.5 as 2.5.1. This patch covers a flaw in the SES + Event caching mechanisms, in which no events would be able to be used. I considered this a critical fix, so please update to this latest patch. This fix is thanks to O?uz Demirkap? for his findings. Thanks Demi!!

There are only two files patched in the release, but it is worth its .1 status.

Thanks again.

ColdBox 2.5.0 Final Release is here!!

Posted by Luis Majano
Dec 18, 2007 00:00:00 UTC

After several months of development, ColdBox 2.5.0 is finally here. This is a truly great release and I want to thank God for his guidance. The release includes tons of new features, updates and fixes. All you need to know about the framework has been documented and can be found at the current wiki:

What's New in 2.5.0

Also, a compatibility guide has been created. Most likely all of your 2.0.3 code will be compatible. However, you need to understand the changes that 2.5.0 implements, since it now uses Application.cfc as a bootstrapper. You can find the guide here:

Compatibility Guides for 2.5.0

Many people collaborated on this release and there are too many to name, but some are: Sana Ullah, Oscar Arevalo, Russ Johnson, Rob Gonda, Brian LeGros, Tom DeManincor, Matt Quackenbush, Aaron Roberson, Peter Bell, etc...

Thanks guys!!

Well, enjoy this release, and please let me know what are your thoughts and how "WE, TEAM COLDBOX" can improve on this incredible framework and software toolkit.

You can download the software here:

Also, a new cheat sheet has been created and it totally rocks!! It is two pages long and it will help you in almost any ColdBox development.

Enjoy this awesome release!!

Last BlueDragon 7 (cfthread) bug with ColdBox resolved.

Posted by Luis Majano

I am so happy to announce that the last bug for BlueDragon 7 on ColdBox has been resolved. It was tricky, but it all came down to using "-" on the name of the thread being created.

If you have something like:


This would fail parsing in bluedragon 7 but work as normal in Adobe CF. So I had to replace and come up with better names:


And voila!!! It works!! So the final bug registered for ColdBox RC 2 has been resolved. Hopefully, no more bugs will creep up. If you have any, then send them in. As of now, THERE HAVE BEEN NO MORE REPORTED COLDBOX RC2 BUGS. This might cause a release soon!!
