CF_Underground Panel Questions


To submit your question go here.

  • I would like to map an access database w/o going through the CF server administrator but by possibly using the CFregistry tag and CFHTTP. Is this possible at all ?
  • What CF functions seem to be least used and why?
  • Say you have a 3-part application process (higher ed), thus 3 tables in a resulting database (they don't have to do all 3 parts at once). AFTER development of submissions, it's discovered that the client wants the application to be printable as a whole as if the submitter filled out a paper form (or as close to is as possible). How would you best go about this?
  • How can I turn an XML packet into a ColdFusion Structure?
  • How do i integrate with PeopleSoft
  • Does Cold Fusion work with SAP
  • Is CF planning to implement a system of keeping track of the users who are "currently logged in"? Or is there already a way to authenticate someone and then to continuously know if they are still using the web application written in CF?
  • When will CFTREE be upgraded to allow multiple selections?
  • A discussion of approaches to content management systems (e.g., storing all content in a database vs. storing static html files in directories).
  • How do I retrieve the value of a cookie which has '.' in its name. I can't #Evaluate("Cookie.jim.1")# because it fails. In general, I have to put a special case when looping through the Cookie Collection to ensure that the name doesn't have dots in it before I evaluate. This is annoying because our routing hardware sets cookies which have dots in the name and I can't stop using them.
  • What is the most efficient way to locate the number of instances of a substring in a larger string in Cold Fusion. For instance in "Bob ran to the store and then ran down the isle and then ran to the counter where his money ran out". How could I find in the most efficient way possible the find the number of times the phrase 'ran' occured.

  • Dear Experts, I want to make my own Functions in ColdFusion? Can u show me how? From Rif Kiamil
  • How did Steve Nelson's Head get so big?
  • We're running CF4.5 NTserver 4.0 SP6. When we use CFFILE to upload a file, the file increases the size of coldfusion.exe and never decreases, even after the file is written to the disk. After a few uploads all of our 500megs of RAM is gone. Because ColdFusion 4.5 incorporates the latest version of SmartHeap, which no longer returns unused memory to NT. Instead, memory is held, assuming ColdFusion may reuse it in the near future. This causes problems with reading large files using CFFILE. Any suggestions?
  • I'm looking for a content management system. What advice can you give for using ColdFusion to accomplish this task? I guess there is a build vs. buy question to consider as well. What companies offer off-the-shelf CF based Web Content Management Systems.

  • hi there, I set up an application in CF 5 that is using session variables to distinguish users. Problem is when a bunch of people got on the system, the started to see each others information - in fact they started to get each others login ID profiles (ie 1 user ended up with the user profile of the person next door who actually kept his own profile).
