BlogCFC Code Formatting Not Thread Safe (With Example)

ColdBox, ColdFusion, Object Oriented Design (OOP), Performance, Security
I found an interesting little bug in the BlogCFC implementation of ColdFISH today. ColdFISH is a ColdFusion code formatting component that is instantiated once and cached as a singleton in the application scope in BlogCFC. The problem is, ColdFISH looks like it wasn't intended to be used as a singleton. It makes use of the variables scope to store the Java StringBuffer class it uses to gather up your formatted code as well as a number of other variables used to parse the code it is formatting. This means when two or more people hit a BlogCFC entry with larger code samples, race conditions exists.

MVC Question: What Should The Controller Pass The View?

ActionScript, Ajax, ColdBox, ColdFusion, Flash, Flex, IBO, MVC, Object Oriented Design (OOP)
I think the bane of development planning can be those conversations where you personify your framework and start debating about what a service should "know", whose "job" a particular operation is, or what the handler should "care" about. This is one of those sort of questions, but I'll keep it brief since I'm more interested in your opinions than my ramblings.

CFML Advisory Committee Update and ColdBox

ColdBox, ColdFusion, General
Just a couple things I wanted to mention... The first is that the CFML Advisory Committee has been at work drafting their first version of the CFML language spec. Also, while looking through www.opencfml.org I noticed they are using CodexWiki which runs on ColdBox which is pretty cool. Speaking of ColdBox...

Add Your Own Custom Tools To CF Administrator- How Did I Miss This?

ColdBox, Security, Server Administration
This is a really cool feature of ColdFusion 8 that I had totally missed but I stumbled across an article on Ray Camden's blog today. (Thanks Ray!) Basically, you can modify your ColdFusion Administrator menus to include custom tools of your own choosing. Several pre-built ones out there including SpoolMail, a nifty util to re-copy your undeliverable mail back into the spool folder; and Cache Clearer, an easy way to clear out specific folders of trusted cache.
