The launch of ForgeBox!

Posted by Luis Majano
Nov 25, 2009 00:00:00 UTC
I have been wanting to release something like ForgeBox for quite a few years and never got the time for it. I really thought it would require lots of time and effort.

Fortunately, thanks to ColdBox 3.0.0 and Transfer (no cf9 goodness yet), I was able to complete it in very little time. So what is ForgeBox? ForgeBox is an online application where the community can share anything source related to ColdBox and CodexWiki. You can submit your code entries and organize them in our own forge types we have created. This is an initial release and we will grown on it as time progresses and we get more ideas from the community. It also sports several RSS feeds and a full blown REST API built on ColdBox 3.0.0.

So enjoy ForgeBox and our open ColdBox Community Collaboration Space!

Merging arrays in ColdFusion

I need to merge several arrays today in CF but I wanted to treat the resulting merged array as a set, where it only had items that are not duplicated. Java to the rescue, our good old Set interface and using a Tree set class.

All we need to do is use its awesome methods:

a1 = [1,2,3,4,5,6];

a2 = [2,6,8,4,99,0];

set = createObject("java","java.util.TreeSet").init(a1);


That's it. This merges the array collections and creates a sorted set without any duplicates. Quick and easy!

This past weekend we had another ColdBox Training Seminar in Dallas, Texas and it was such a great experience. The group was diverse, involved and really into learning, which I was so grateful to teach. To better let you in to the experience of one of our seminars, Doug Boude has written an excellent summary of his training experience. So if you want to know what ColdBox training is like, head on over to Doug's blog and find out.

ColdBox Release Galore!!

What can I say, I have been very productive this past few weeks and we have several releases:

  • ColdBox 3.0.0 Beta 3
  • LogBox 1.0
  • MockBox 1.0
  • Amazon S3 Explorer & ColdBox Plugin

As you can see we are hard at work on our 3.0.0 release and we now have 3 milestones under our belt. We still are finalizing all of our planned core features so we can then concentrate on our two more standalone modules: BlenderBox and cboxCache. So stay tuned.

Book Update:

I am still finalizing the last minute revisions on the book manuscript and then I will have to re-send to my publisher. Sorry about the delay, but the book looks amazing and hopefully I can release soon!
