Log4j Update

Brad Said: I've removed all use of Log4j 1.x in CommandBox/Runwar's core, updating to 2.17.1 which will ship in our next release.  Please note, Lucee and Adobe CF are still bundling Log4j 1.x in their products, which affect CF engines and the core CLI. #CFML #ColdFusion

Blogs, Tweets and Videos of the Week


Blog - Nolan Erck - ColdFusion Summit 2021 Recap
Last month was the ColdFusion Summit 2021 Conference. Like many events lately this one was virtual (as opposed to the usual meetup in Vegas) but I'd say this was still worth attending for anyone near the CFML space.

Blog - Matthew Clemente - Retrieving Database Credentials from AWS Secrets Manager with CFML
As a quick follow-up to my last post about storing database credentials in AWS Secrets Manager, I wanted to walk through retrieving them using CFML, so you can actually use them in your application.

Blog - Adam Cameron - If your company (or yourself) makes money using Lucee… you should throw them a bone
A few weeks back, right in the thick of the crap about all these Log4J vulnerabilities, I was talking to a few people about the necessity and the effort involved in Lucee getting their situation sorted out, vis-a-vis dealing with outdated library dependencies they had. They were lucky to be safe from the Log4J thing… but only serendipitously-so because they'd not been able to prioritise moving off a really old version of Log4J (which didn't have the problematic code in it yet). They just didn't have the resources to do anything about it, when considering all the rest of the work that kept coming in. The crux of it was that they can only afford so much paid-for dev time, which means tough decisions need to be made when it comes to deciding on what to work on.
To their credit, they've now removed the old version of Log4J from the current version of Lucee 5.x, as well as in the upcoming 6.x, replacing it with the fully-patched current version.

Blog - Wil De Bruin - LogBox: Basic Concepts and Configuration
As mentioned in my previous post it might be a bit overwhelming when you want to start logging with coldbox. In this post I will show you how to add simple logging capabilities to a coldbox application.

VS Code Hint Tips and Tricks of the Week

Markdownlint

In a way, markdown is the new HTML. However, it can be cumbersome to deal with when your markdown misses a *, #, or space somewhere. markdownlint deals with formatting inconsistencies that come with writing markdown. It also helps you learn correct markdown by alerting you if you are violating markdown rules.
