Release Candidate 2 of Transfer
1.1 is now available for download.
It has several critical bug fixes from the previous Release Candidate.
While I did promise several blog posts about the new features, I simply
haven't had time, as I'm been incredibly busy with client work, and
working on Transfer.
That being said, the documentation for all the new features has been written in the wiki
, and you can also view the latest presentation
recording that I did, which covers many of the new features found in Transfer 1.1.
Transfer 1.1 Release Candidate 2 can be downloaded from here
Just to let you guys know, the recording for the recent eSeminar, What's new in Transfer 1.0 (and 1.1) is available .
You will also find the code examples available to download along with it.
It was a fun presentation to do, so I hope you enjoy it.
Tom de Manincor Released yesterday TransferSync , a nice tool that works with Transfer to enable it to be used across a cluster of servers, and maintain its cache.
It's really a nice little piece of software, a huge thanks goes out to Tom for putting this together. He's expanded on some of the ideas that Sean Corfield had in his original clustering implementation, and has expanded them nicely.
For more details on TransferSync, check out Tom's blog posts !
Sorry about the late blog post on this! I just realised I hadn't put one up!

Report Builder (The Hidden Gem)
People may or may not realise that a report builder is included with
ColdFusion since version 7. Along with this report design tool, comes some
additional ColdFusion tags to allow you to incorporate full featured
reporting into your application without additional expense. While Report
Builder is not as rich featured as Crystal Reports or similar, it provides
all the necessary components to create reports, and being part of ColdFusion
the code and syntax used within reports is ColdFusion code that will
familiar to you all.
So if you either don't know about the Report Builder or have never has a
chance to play with it, this introduction will get you started. Things
covered will include
1. Designing a Report (No Code)
2. General Reporting Concepts, grouping, totalling etc.
3. Passing a Query into a Report
4. Generating a Report silently to a PDF
5. Printing a Report silently to a local printer.

I'm going to be presenting 'What's new in Transfer 1.0' in Adobe's continuing eSeminar series.
Transfer 1.0 is finally here! This release comes bundled with lots of brand new features, bug fixes and performance improvements. In this eSeminar we'll introduce you to the new Transfer functions and provide more ways to implement ColdFusion applications faster than ever before.
We may also look at the new features that are in 1.1 at the same time as well.

This is more a note to myself, as I seem to forget this step whenever I am installing Oracle XE on an Ubuntu server.
As well as all the usual suspects (build-essential, linux-header-server, etc), also remember to install:
Either that, or if you feel like downloading a random 200MB, you can install it from the Oracle repositories
Now excuse me, while I go beat myself over the head for spending hours trying to work out why Oracle wasn't working.
Transfer 1.1 Release Candidate
Hot on the heals of Transfer
1.0, is Transfer 1.1, now with added sugar and spice, and all things nice! :oD
release has been squarely aimed at large Transfer based systems, in
order to give them more control over the caching layer, and provide
more performance overall. (Which is not to say this isn't a release
for everyone else as well, because there are lots of good things to
share all around).
I'm not going to go into
huge detail on each of the new features, but instead will be running a
series of blog posts, highlighting each of the new main features and
how you would use them over the next coming week or so.
documentation is still mostly forthcoming (have to get that paying work
finished!), but expect it to show up on the wiki in the next few days.
If you want a head start, most of the tickets linked in the release
notes have a link to the relevant google group post, or the usage
details can be found in the tickets themselves.
To give you a taste, of some of the really interesting new features:
- A performance upgrade of at least 25% in object loading!
- Introspection and statistics for the caching layer
- A new cache discard algorithm, that allows granular control over the cache
- New cache time-out settings
- The ability to load manytoone, onetomany and manytomany collections as TransferObject Proxies, giving you a way to manage large object collections.
- Custom tags for TQL (Big Thanks to Elliot Sprehn!)
- Plus more!
