Another two functions from ColdFusion 10 recreated for CF8+ (7 if you’re lucky). Since it’s a Friday I’ve picked two easy ones: ArraySlice and GetApplicationMetadata. If you haven’t spotted GetApplicationMetadata, you’ve probably only looked at the CF10 docs “New Functions in ColdFusion 10″, as it’s currently missing off that list but not Charlie Arehart’s massive list.
Next up on the hit list of backported functions from ColdFusion 10 to at least CF8+: CallStackGet & CallStackDump. These functions are aimed at grabbing a ColdFusion stack trace based on where they’re used, for more detailed information take a quick look through the linked manual entries.
Another entry in my new CF10 Backport series, taking a new feature from ColdFusion 10 and showing that it’s possible in older versions. This time the function is SessionStartTime() which can be pretty useful to know in certain applications.
This is basically a request for help in designing the database / objects for CFTracker version 3. I’m struggling to decide on the best way to handle and structure the data and would love to get some input or even your own ideas on how it’d be designed. Currently this is the main reason I’m not getting anywhere with version 3, as I don’t want to progress too far and then have to rip everything apart again.
