Railo likes to work with nulls

I just found out about two nice functions in railo:

  • isNull()
  • nullValue()

Finally, a way to interact with java nulls easily. So all you do to create null values is do

if ( isNull( CacheManager.get('key') ) ){

writeoutput("object is not found in cache")


What if you need a null value?

cacheMap['luis'] = nullValue()

Two very simple functions, but they sure make life so so so much easier when integrating with java. This to me are my favorite two new functions.

Railo can do array notation from method calls

I just found out about this by trying it out and thought wow, FINALLY!

Let's say I have a method that returns an array. Example below:

As you can see, a very simple example. So now, in my code outside my method I want to be able to access let's say item number 3 from the method call and the key called awesomeLevel from the structure call. Then I can do this:

item3 = getArray()[3];

MyAwesomeLevel = getStruct()['awesomeLevel'];

How cool is that, finally!! Array syntax from method calls.

Railo and multi-variable assignments rock!

I found a neat little feature in Railo 3.1 which I myself is calling multi-variable assignments.

Let's say you want to assign a value to multiple variables in coldfusion. You would usually do this:

Name = "Luis Majano";

ColdboxAuthor = Name;

CodexAuthor = Name;

AwesomenessAuthor = Name;

That is really neat right, well, Railo makes it fun!

Name = "Luis Majano"

ColdboxAuthor = CodexAuthor = AwesomenessAuthor = Name

How about that!! I can assign values to multiple variables, by just concatenaning the equals. Keep exploring Railo and you will find some nice hidden gems.
