Here’s the demo/presentation I did for the Rich Internet Applications Seminar we had two weeks ago. I was able to get it setup on my laptop quite quickly using ColdFusion’s standalone webserver, but getting it running via IIS turned out to be a bigger deal.
To get the most out of it, use the ‘4KEH833’ license plate.
After you complete the demo, make sure to hit this page to restore the original data to the database.
This app took me awhile to get working because Flash remoteing wasn’t working to well w/ the IIS/Virtual Hosts and because I’m not sure that I fully understand CFC’s and pathing issues… I solved the CFC issue by putting the appropriate CFC’s into the c:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\ directory… turns out that these particular CFC’s need access to the application scope so you have to keep an application.cfm in the c:\cfusionmx\wwwroot\[yourfolder] AND [drive]:\hosts\[yourhost]\wwwroot\. This seems kludgy to me, but whatever… The Flash Remoting trick (at least it worked for me twice now) is to run:
(which removes all CFM mappings from IIS)
and then run:
which adds them all back…
restart CF and voila… it should work for you.
You’ll notice that running IIS_connector.bat adds a ‘JRunScripts’ virtual directory to each IIS virtual host you have setup.

I couldn’t stand to watch the MLB playoffs this year until I knew that the Yankees weren’t going to win the World Series. I can start watching now. 🙂
This story is sick. I wrote an email to the station asking them to fire the guy. You can too.
Putting the finishing touches on a site for my wife’s employer, hope to go live w/ this soon, which will eventually live here: http://www.awomansconcern.org/partners. Feedback?
Went to Carlson Orchards today (a beautiful crisp fall New England day) with Martha, Cynthia, Eric, Cathy and Jeanette to pick apples (and got to pick raspberries too!). Got pictures to prove it.
Celebrated my wife and I’s 4th wedding anniversary and Dad and Mom Waterbury’s 32nd wedding anniversary by going to #9 Park in downtown Boston. 🙂
I first heard about the WTC attacks by reading this post on evolt.org at probably 9:00am. I remember walking over to our kitchen at work and mentioning it off handedly to someone else, who confirmed that she had heard ‘something’ about a plane hitting the WTC. We didn’t have a TV at work, so the skeleton crew that stayed (my wife is my ride home and she wasn’t offered the day off) listened to the radio reports, called (tried to) family, read email, and tried and tried to get to cnn.com, washingtonpost.com, boston.com or any other news site to see what was going on. I remember postulating that the planes were destined for California because that would have meant full tanks of gas, which would lead to more destruction (and perhaps the reason the towers actually did fall)…
Spent the day w/ Mom and Dad Waterbury doodling up the coast through New Hampshire and into Maine. We stopped at Fort Constitution in New Hampshire, drove to Portland, Maine (right past York and the Nubble Lighthouse because we’ve already seen that one) where we stopped at Portland Head Light, supposedly one of the most picturesque lighthouses around… Fun time had by all, pictures to prove it.
