During this session, you will be introduced to some of the new and exciting language enhancements in ColdFusion Splendor. From complete script support to use of member functions and many other useful features to boot, you will get to see first-hand all the developer productivity improvements that will make coding fun and rewarding again.
Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology provides a component based approach to design, development, assembly, and deployment of enterprise applications. Adobe ColdFusion provides state of the art interoperability between J2EE components and ColdFusion applications. With the release of ColdFusion 10, Adobe now provides a platform for collaboration and integration between ColdFusion and Java that is mature and enterprise ready. In this session you will learn about the integration models available between Java and Coldfusion. Join us as we discuss the new features of ColdFusion 10 that allow for a more seamless integration with Java, such as: Dynamic library invocation, without a server restart; Setting application specific variables for Java libraries; Bi-Directional integration - Java invoking ColdFusion; and creating proxies with Java and ColdFusion CFC’s.
The smart phone revolution is upon us and so is the app revolution. Gone are the days when clients just want us to create them web sites, but now they want a mobile app to accompany it. With the introduction of cfclient the process of creating these mobile applications has gotten much easier. Now it is no longer necessary to learn additional technologies to create your applications, you can build them using your ColdFusion knowledge. In this session you will be introduced to cfclient and shown how to set up your project, write some code and deploy your application. By the end of this session you will be ready to start creating simple mobile applications.
In this session we'll discuss ColdFusion's built-in Solr support and how you can use it provide better search results to your users. We'll cover: • A quick overview of cfcollection/cfindex/cfsearch (we're going to assume you've at least heard of these tags) • A look at what it means to implement this in a real web site • A look at modifying input to cfsearch in order to handle various styles of searches • A look at modifying Solr files for low level tweaking
ColdFusion provides developers with some amazing features to streamline their development and maintain a clean, separated code base. In this session we will explore how we can utilize the power of ColdFusion components and introduce some object-oriented programming concepts into our development processes. Say goodbye to procedural code and hello to the world of beans, gateways and data access objects.
By now everyone should know that CF 10 runs on Apache Tomcat. What's new and different about that? Sure, Adobe's goal is that running atop Tomcat "just works" and is simply better than JRun, and for many there will be no apparent difference. But there's no denying there are new capabilities and some differences. In this session, veteran CF troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will review and explore these new capabilities and differences.
He'll address such things as changes regarding web servers (the "internal" web server, now Tomcat's, and changes in external web server integration); config tweaks people have done in JRun and whether/how those are to be done on Tomcat; some things about native Tomcat don't apply to Tomcat as run under CF; as well as logging, configuration, and other matters. More than that, Charlie will identify new capabilities that Tomcat enables, some of which may not be necessarily identified as "new" by Adobe but which we might leverage.
We’ve all heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Charts are a necessity for the reporting and decision making processes in today’s world of rapid data transfer and simplifying processes. Charts allow us to visualize trending in massive data feeds and HTML5 charts bring customizable, dynamic imagery to viewing that data. ColdFusion 10 allows you to quickly and easily generate responsive, customized HTML5 charts. You’ll spend less time on development and code maintenance by implementing this dynamic HTML5 solution in your applications. This session will focus on the new HTML5 charting feature of ColdFusion 10 and how to deliver highly customizable, dynamic charts. You¹ll learn about rendering basic charts, customization, zooming, and adding dynamic elements.
