Today I wanted to check if a particular record existed, given the primary key of that record and one additional field of it, and naively wrote:


I'm doing a talk about ColdSpring

On October 16th at 1900 UK time, I'll be giving a talk to Charlie Arehart's online ColdFusion user group.
It'll be about using the AOP and RemoteProxy support in ColdSpring to expose beans as services that can be used by CFML, Flex, SOAP, AJAX etc. clients with minimal code.
The session will be online via. and so will also be recorded.


FacadeStarter Updated

I've updated my ColdSpring FacadeStarter to prevent it creating a BeanFactory called 'application.beanFactory' that would then run in parallel to the factory created internally by the RemoteFactoryBean system.
This caused a very minor amount of additional memory to be used, and occasional problems with getting updated Beans to show up.

Come along and lets have a chat, plus you'll get to hear from the new project manager, Mark Drew.
