Slide and Demo from my Keynote at CFUnited


I am having a blast this week at the ColdFusion conference CFUnited.  Here are the slides from my keynote today… One interesting demo I did was a Atlas\ColdFusion demo.. Check it out and let me here what you think!


 


Update (11/21/2006): I reader wrote in with a comment that I thought would help folks…


There is a simple fix to a problem that’s keeping the CF/Atlas example working for folks. Most CF developers will have what’s called “CF debugging” turned on, and that will cause your CFM page (called from the Atlas client) from responding correctly, because it’s sending a big load of HTML at the bottom of the output–which your client won’t be expecting. The simple solution is to drop a CFSETTING ShowDebugOutput=”no” into the application.cfm. If you can add that to both the zip and as a comment (for others who may visit after downloading it previously, or who hear of grief from earlier readers) that may help increase the positive regard of CFers toward using Atlas.

  1. I note that the recent CFUnited conference had a really good turn out, a Atlas demo from Brad Adams and

    Hi Brad,

    I just downloaded the example code. What are the requirements to run it?

    Rey…

  3. David Pugmire says:

    Requirements:

    -ColdFusion

    -IIS5 (Windows XP Pro)

    Getting Started:

    1 – Download and install ColdFusion (can be found on Adobe.com, CF MX7)

    2- Download Brads sample code.

    3- Extract to a folder in your Internet directory (or make a Virtual Directory in IIS to point to it)

    4- In Application.cfm be sure to set the following:

      appPath = "AtlasCF"

    Or whatever the folder name of your app path is if you renamed it.

    Now the app should run in your browser.  You will be able to poke around in the files and see how this works, starting with Index.cfm.  ScriptLibrary contains all the Atlas client side code, and you will also notice JSON and Webservice code in the Lib folder.

    When mixing these two environments:

    I don’t know of many webhosts that support both .net framework and coldfusion.

    Also, this opens the question of which IDE is going to be used for development.
