Railo 3.1 Supports Optional Semicolons

Wouldn't you know it? Railo 3.1 supports optional semicolons! I totally love this syntax enhancement as my cfscripting can become even less noisy by adding those pesky semi-colons. How cool is this:

/* Start Exporter */

sqlBuffer = createObject("java","java.lang.StringBuilder").init('')

/* Create Function Namespace */


/* Read fnc Library */

xmlDoc = xmlParse(expandPath('web-cfmfunctionlibrary_1_0'))

fncXML = xmlSearch(xmlDoc,"//function")

fncXMLLen = arrayLen(fncXML)

I like this! No more noisy semi-colons. Just beware that if you are doing multiple statements on a single line, you will actually HAVE to put in the semicolons.

function formatnow(){ return "#dateformat(now(),"yyyy-mm-dd")# #timeformat(now(),"HH:mm:ss")#"; }

A part from that, I love it!

I am so glad to see this day as CFML becomes open source. Railo has just gone open source and WOW!! What an incredible engine. Not only that, but they are sporting 3 new websites:

The websites look phenomenal and we also get a documentation website powered by Codex. I wonder who did the initial documentation?

You can download the open source version of Railo from their nice downloads page.

Review of Flex vs Silverlight Debate at Cal Poly Pomona

I completely forgot to post about this and post a link to the event we hosted at Cal Poly Pomona last month between Adobe and Microsoft. The debate was excellent and we had great attendance for the IECFUG. We where able to get more students and interest in our ColdFusion User Group and hopefully get to recruit some more after an awe inspiring presentation by Kevin Hoyt.

Unfortunately, I won't say anything bad about Microsoft because I won a copy of Vista Ultimate! :) (hmm, what did I do with it?)

If you want to see the video for yourself and see how the debate was laid out see who won, check this link out:
