Leveraging ColdFusion to Build Java-EE Applications: Elishia Dvorak

  1. 1. Leveraging ColdFusion to build Java-EE applications Mike Nimer| Solution Architect at Universal Mind Elishia Dvorak | Solution Consultant at Adobe© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  2. 2. What is ColdFusion  High level Java Application  Both a language (CFML) and a web application platform (server)  Provides seamless integration with existing Java applications.  Available since 1995  Reliable and mature, extensive feature set  165+ JSP tags  Hundreds of functions  CF was ported from C++ to Java between CF5 and CF6  Provides necessary services  .Net integration, PDF generation, Image manipulation, etc…© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  3. 3. Using ColdFusion (in Java)  Use CFCProxy to treat CF like a large library and invoke ColdFusion tags and functions inside your java classes/servlets. (New in CF10)  Use ColdFusion as the "View" layer in an existing Java Framework, such as Spring MVC.© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  4. 4. ColdFusion Parts  .CFM Page “is like a” JSP Page  .CFC File “is like a” Java Class / POJO  Compiler  CFMServlet  Filters  Extra Servlets  REST support  Flex Integration  RDS (IDE integration)  etc.© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  5. 5. Why ColdFusion (for Java developers)  PDF Integration  Event Gateways  CFDOCUMENT  SMS / IM Gateway  Email  CFPDF  CFMAIL (2million / hr)  Virtual File System  CFExchange  In Memory, S3, ZIP, etc.  CFPOP/CFIMAP  Query of Query  CFPresentation  .NET integration  Encryption  CFDUMP  RSA B-Safe Crypto-J library  and more..  OEM features© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated.

  6. 6. CFCProxy String cfcPath = req.getRealPath("/demos-inf/components/" + "cfExample.cfc"); CFCProxy myCFC = new CFCProxy(cfcPath, false); Object[] myArgs = {img}; Object cfcResult = myCFC.invoke("convertImage", myArgs);© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  7. 7. CFCPROXY Demos  Query-of-Query  Html to PDF  PDF Forms  Dynamic Presentation Creation  Excel Integration  Image Manipulation© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  8. 8. ColdFusion Classloader & CFCProxy  CFCProxy & the CF ClassLoader <servlet>    <servlet-name>myServlet</servlet-name>    <servlet- class>coldfusion.bootstrap.BootstrapServlet</servlet-class>    <init-param>        <param-name>servlet.class</param-name>        <param-value>com.mikenimer.MyServlet</param-value>    </init-param>    <load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup> </servlet>© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated.

  9. 9. SpringMVC  MVC Java Framework  Clear separation of roles - Controllers, models, view helpers, filters, Interceptors, validation, etc.  View Helpers support multiple output formats from the same url  return Web page to browser  return JSON to IPhone version of site© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  10. 10. SpringMVC  Why ColdFusion instead of JSP?  CFTAGS feel right around HTML  Raw power available in CF  JSP Tags work in CF Pages too© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
  11. 11. SpringMVC "palladium" ViewHelper  Palladium will put the “model” properties into the ColdFusion request scope.  Palladium allows you to pass Spring beans into ColdFusion. #request.palladium.beans.<name>#  Palladium can auto convert java objects into CF Friendly types (default is off)  Collections into CF Array (Vector)  Convert NULL into default “”© 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated.
