The other day Darren asked about how to access a properties file with some settings from within a Livecycle ES resp. ADEP DSC on the livecycle developers mailing list. I responded there, but I thought it’d be useful to post the solution here as well. Essentially a Livecycle/ADEP DSC is nothing else but a .jar […]

by kai 06/08/2012

That’s actually not quite true even though I can see where people are coming from – ColdFusion doesn’t seem to be as posh and fancy as the poster children of web development such as Rails and Node. Fair enough. However, there’s more to […]
