That was quick: cfthread and cfjoin tags

posted under category: ColdFusion on July 21, 2006 by Nathan

Today on Damon Cooper's Blog, you can read about the new tags from the CF engineering master Rupesh Kumar that give you simple, easy and effective threading control straight from CF. No more messing with event gateways, trying to execute applications from the file system or make 0-second http requests back to CF, now you can do it inline.

What's amazing is New Atlanta just announced these tags for the upcomming Blue Dragon 7.0 a little over a week ago at CFUnited.

Yeah, maybe it's blatantly ripping it off, but the tags are not from Adobe, they're just Rupesh's side project because he thought it was cool. Personally I hope they do make it back into the core of CFMX 8. It's a great idea whose time has come, and I'm glad someone thought of it.

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
