I updated the ColdBox docs api to include ColdBox cache metadata information. It was an easy addition and a great one. Now you can use this to actually document your handlers if you wanted and get the extra ColdBox metadata javadocs style. Below you can see a screenshot.

The project used is CFCDoc and can be found at To do the metadata update if you use this great project, you will need to open the doctemplate.cfm found in the templates folder. Look for the following line of code:

First of all, I am a big advocate of Transfer, it is totally awesome and TQL totally rocks. I came up today to almost pulling my hair out on a very simple TQL query and thought I should share this so people have a grasp on details.

When using a query with the IN modifier and a list, you cannot just map a parameter with a value, you have to specify that its a list. (Reading the docs might help!!). Adventurous Luis, went ahead without fully reading Mr. Mandel's excellent docs and of course, fell in a cavernous pit of despair.

ColdBox needs Designers or CSS Masters for Error Template!!

Posted by Luis Majano

This is a call to designers or CSS masters. I am currently modifying the error template for ColdBox and need a new design and layout. If you are interesting in taking on this task and helping out, then please download the attached zip file and do your magic. The only requirements is that it needs to be css and look attractive. The attached file contains a style sheet and the Bug Report file. The report gets both rendered and emailed. No images can be used, just color combinations and effects. So if you can help out, please do. Then just submit them to [email protected].

I have no money to bribe you with or gifts. This is to collaborate to this project. So if you have any extra time and want to take a shot at creating the error template, then many many thanks and blessings!!
