cf_pim: Flash CFForms Style Manager

cf_pim: Flash CFForms Style Manager: "As developer I often lose time when designing my forms.
Being more and more happy with the flash CFForms, I built this little helper.
There are for the moment most of the CFForm flash controls (Tree, TabNavigator, Datagrid, Calendar, textArea and Accordion), I am adding the others when I have time."

CFUnit is a unit testing framework for ColdFusion, modeled after the popular JUnit framework. CFUnit is an open source project hosted on SourceForge and is freely available. The idea behind unit testing it to build a framework of scripted tests that are frequently executed to verify each method or function behave as expected. Building unit tests are an investment into the stability of your code. It may require a little extra time up front, but will save your and your fellow developers extensive amounts of time and resource down the road. An introductory primer was recently placed online.

Justin Daniels .org » Blog Archive » CFFORM binding accordian controls to a url param: "So I was at work today working in ColdFusion 7 trying to make a accordian control open automatically to a url variable. The purpose of this was so that a “save” button would process and come back…the user wouldnt even know anythign happened! From a usability standpoint this is a MUST -HAVE!"

Monitoring ColdFusion with Nagios at Acid

Monitoring ColdFusion with Nagios at Acid: "At work, we run a Nagios server to monitor the health of our web infrastructure. “What’s Nagios?” I hear you ask. Well, nagios is the 800lb gorilla in the world of open source monitoring apps. It has a rich and useful feature set for monitoring the health of pretty much every aspect of your infrastructure from the servers delivering your web apps (and the actual apps running on them) all the way out acroos your network to your gateway routers. And, for an open source project, the documentation is incredibly rich and detailed, covering every aspect of running the software. It pretty much has the ability to monitor everything you run!"

Macromedia - Developer Center : Advanced ColdFusion Flash Form Techniques

Macromedia - Developer Center : Advanced ColdFusion Flash Form Techniques: "Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7 introduced a rich new interface format: Flash forms (). Through the cfform, cfformgroup, cfformitem, cfinput, cfgrid, and cfselect tags, ColdFusion developers can now create rich user interfaces which, amongst other powerful effects, modify their displayed data without a server-side roundtrip. In some contexts (using the cfgrid tag with the cfformitem or cfinput tags), you can use data binding to create these effects easily. However, in other contexts, a deeper understanding of event handlers, ActionScript, and the Flash Component API will open possibilities beyond simple data binding."
