CFML Portlets Update

Over the past week I've had the pleasure of working with an old coworker of mine Bob Burns on portal work. Thanks to some fine sleuth work from Bob we tackled a silly bug that prevented multiuple protlets per war. Bob added some nicer error handling and we have tested and confirmed ColdFusion 8 support on JBoss and Websphere. I found out ColdFusion is not quite as case insensitive as OpenBD when it comes to sharing JEE variables. I'm hoping to get some more time this week to confirm Liferay support as well as Railo support on most of the portals as well. I am also contemplating if I want to add CFC support similar to how ColdFusion 9 is allowing to you use portlets. I haven't created a new build yet mostly because I am hoping to get a few of the aforementioned things tucked in before the .2 release. I will release .2 next Monday at the latest. Thanks to Bob for the help and a little needed motivation with the framework thus far.

I have both a Java portal and CF CMS system. I need to bring these two worlds together. So I was planning on moving my CF code to Portlets.

I have been googling around trying to find info on using CF8/Railo with a Java Portal.

Have there been any updates to the project?

Yeah couple folks are using it and a co-worker is actively using the project for our Public facing Portal with CF8 (he is making small commits and bug fixes still). I've not done much with it since I does what I needed. Bob found a bug reacently, I need to see if that was commited, if it is then it is golden :) If you need enhancements or better documentation drop a line: a haskell on gmail.
