Enterprise Architect ColdFusion Generation Templates Released

I have used Sparx System Enterprise Architect for almost 4 years now and absolutely love working with it for UML design and also for ColdFusion code stub generation.  The only problem with EA is that it has to run on windows, sorry but I hate windows, but anyways.  I am finally opening my templates to the world so I can get more collaboration on them.  I took a project from Mike Ranklin I believe and updated lots of the source to make it work with ColdFusion 9 script syntax and also ORM entities. 

It is really great to have a great UML model and stub out our ORM entities out of it.  So if you are interested, the project is here and help out.

Github Fever

As you might have noticed from the ColdBox migrations, we are moving to github.  I took the decision to migrate our source code over for several reasons that you git fans might already know.  However, not only did I move because of the version control system, but because it allows for easier community involvement in the projects.  This to me was key.  So instead of tons of headaches with SVN patches, just fork the dang thing, patch it and send me a request.  So hopefully, this will allow for more community involvements. 

I am also moving my personal projects to github and you can find them on my personal space.

URL Prefix + CFBuilder + Nested Applications

One little caveat when working with CFBuilder is that I was not getting the file preview working on the IDE because it was complaining that my project was not the root of the selected server as you can see below:


The problem is that Builder knows the root of the server but my application project is not on the root of server but on a folder embedded in it.  So in order to make this work, just add a URL prefix to the project.  Right click on the project and click on  "SET URL Prefix":

Click on it and you will get the following dialog and fill out the FULL URL, I tried just the directory, but it did not work, maybe a bug in Builder. So put the FULL URL.

Hope this helps, enjoy!
