Custom Error + onMissingTemplate + CF + IIS = confusion?? Not Exactly

February 16, 2015 / Milan Chandna

  Adobe ColdFusion | Adobe ColdFusion 10 | Adobe ColdFusion 11 | Connector

I have seen many customers getting confused in custom error pages and onMissingTemplate feature in ColdFusion and IIS. So I thought of blogging it for the use of larger audience. Before starting let me setup a platform.

Customer Eddard(name assumed) is using ColdFusion10(valid for ColdFusion11 too) configured with IIS. He has setup onMissingTemplate in Administrator of ColdFusion. Now Eddard expects ColdFusion to run this error page(mentioned in onMissinTemplate), let's call it 404.cfm, whenever user hits a page which doesn't exist. But suprisingly his browser is not showing the contents of 404.cfm and instead showing IIS 404 error page which is a static file(html file). After a lot of struggle he finds another confusing behavior that when he access the non existing page from machine where server is running(localhost) then his 404.cfm is getting executed. It's clear from the behavior that there is somehting in IIS which is handling this behavior.

You guys must be thinking what is the right approach then. I will give three scenarios and you can chose any one depending upon your requirements.
1. Custom error page - Simply use custom error page and do not use onMissingTemplate. You have to opt for "Custom error pages" in "IIS->site->error pages->edit feature settings". And give a 404.cfm url against required status code like 404 in "IIS->site->error pages". This cfm will be executed whenever that error has been hit like a user requested for non existing page. The page will not be executed twice since you have not mentioned anything in onMissingtemplate.

Fulfilling customer requirements by focusing on functionality

February 03, 2015 / Kishore Balakrishnan

  Adobe ColdFusion | customers | Success Story

Since 2004, Promisan has built its management consulting and systems business by creating tools that help clients optimize how they use information. Promisan’s flagship enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Prosis, surpasses rival solutions because it has been built using the stable, mature, and powerful Adobe ColdFusion platform. ColdFusion gives Promisan the flexibility to meet changing customer requirements and to integrate with a variety of IT infrastructures

“Adobe ColdFusion is a fantastic application server that outperforms others at a significantly lower cost of ownership. Because it’s based on a J2EE-compliant Java platform, it readily supports Linux, Solaris, Mac, and Windows operating systems. The platform integrates seamlessly into Java and C++ projects—providing outstanding flexibility in the demanding, challenging ERP arena,” says Jorge Armin Mazariegos, co-founder and operations manager at Promisan.

Prosis has helped one global company cut staffing report times from three days to one minute and a recruiting agency to gain real-time insight into job recruiting status. The ERP system has also helped a crude oil distributor cut the time required to refill storage tanks by 67%.

Adobe ColdFusion has allowed Promisan to eliminate nearly all third-party tools for solution development. With ColdFusion, Promisan developers have achieved a sustainable business model for Prosis that can support sites with anywhere from 5 to 5,000 users accessing more than 1,500 normalized database tables.  http://adobe.ly/1BWdfnE
