The idea is simple. I guess most of us will agree that coldfusionbloggers is a defacto instance that tells us how much movement there is in ColdFusion Community for a particular day by the number of posts that are agregated. Yes, not all there are 100% relevant but still this is an estimate. At least the best i could think of. So, starting on 03-07-2011 i started time to time to ping cfbloggers and calculate the number of posts for each day. The numbers may not be fully accurate taking in mind time difference, downsides etc, but still should be pretty close. So, i took that numbers and put on a chart getting so a kind of pulse of the coldfusion community. This being said, please welcome cfPulse...

It's still a work in progress, but there are already about 1700 current deals in 3 countries from almost 70 web sites. Enjoy!...

Well... it's not a real heat-map, but rather is a way to see the concentration of available jobs. So it could help someone who is willing to relocate and is looking for the right region. But it also can help those who just want to see jobs in their own region. Anyway, enough talking. For those interested, here is the link. Note that this is also available now through the JOBS HEAT MAPtop menu link....

ColdFusion is at version 9 already but we still seem to have problems where i would believe all has to be nice for years. I'm talking about CFHTTP tag here. Yesterday i had to make for a client a script that will connect to a site login move to other internal page from where data should be taken So what the usual process would be in such a case? make a CFHTTP request using the cookies from previous step, if any exists, make the CFHTTP call with login credentials using the cookies from previous step (here should be present session cookies), make the CFHTTP call to the internal page do with the data whatever you need Sometimes step 1 may not be needed. Everything looks fine so far and in most of the cases works as supposed, but NOT everytime. Sometimes on step 3 instead of going to the internal page it "lose the session" and as result you get there the login page instead. This is exactly what happened for me for this particular client. I have no idea what th...

After over 2 years, cfHSSF has been updated. It has been done by Steven Durette and he did a really great job! From his email: I made a couple more additions and I set it up so that it would degrade gracefully if the version of POI isn't high enough to support the features. I also made a change to the way values are set in cells. Before a row was created every time a cell value was set. With newer versions of POI if a cell already existed in a row, it was wiped out when another cell in the same row was set. The new method first checks to see if the row exists and uses that. If the row doesn't exist then it creates it. The ability to put JPEG and PNG images into workbooks was added. This works with the POI included with CF9. If someone tries to use it that doesn't have a new enough version, it takes the cell where the image was to reside and places a message that the POI version doesn't support it. You can now stream the workbook directly to the browser instead of having to cr...
