REST2016 - ColdBox REST Template

Luis Majano
Mar 03, 2016

 

One of the newest additions to the ColdBox application templates and also the CommandBox generation templates is our REST application template.  This template will get you started with creating ColdBox RESTFul services. The best way to start with it is by downloading CommandBox, as we will use this for generation, scaffolding and as your integrated server. Then we can start working on our RESTFul service:
 

mkdir myservice
box coldbox create app skeleton=rest name=MyService --installColdBox


Once you execute these CLI commands, you will have a new RESTFul service application ready to go.  The next step is to startup an ad-hoc server and test it out:
 

box server start --rewritesEnable


This will open a browser window with the results of your first RESTFul service:

Build, Test, and Deploy Your Module with Travis CI

Jon Clausen
Feb 15, 2016

 

In its early stages, shipping your new module isn't such a big deal.  The .zip link provided by GitHub works fine for the Forgebox link, and it's not a big deal to update the entry whenever you release a new version.  Once you release it and other developers actually start using and depending on your software, however, the need to automate aspects of the build and deployment process become apparent.

Coldbox Legacy App Demo

Brad Wood
Jan 18, 2016

 

There are a lot of people out there in the CFML world managing legacy codebases.  Some of them use frameworks that are no longer maintained, and many  use no framework at all.  A common question that I get is whether an app can be slowly converted over to  ColdBox without having to rewrite everything at once.  The answer is YES!  ColdBox will comfortably live alongside your legacy code, giving you the chance to slowly convert it over as you get the chance.
