    Anyone supporting mobile app developmint in jQuery mobile is a fool, it's such an ordinary framework for mobile.

    At least upgrade Sencha to ExtJS5 in cf so we could build a decent mobile app for a comp with Sencha Touch components out of ExtJS5.

    We use jQuery mobile and CF for our online jewellery store and with sales of over $9m in 2014 (we only started trading in 2011) and the best Christmas sales ever (40%+ sales YOY), we have found it a great way to build a mobile solution. We built an entire mobile website in just 3 months with jQuery mobile, so it must be a robust solution.

    Hi

    I started using ColdFusion in July, when I started a new Software Developer job.

    I was interested by the competition before it got extended but had too much important testing and debugging on my plate.

    There seems to be a fair bit of negativity towards CF doing front-end stuff (I know javascript, as do most web developers, and I like my cfscript to keep to the back-end, server stuff) but I will give <cfclient> a try.
  5. Oliver
    Gary, great to hear that. Can you share a bit more on this?

    How's your experience on using cfclient? Thanks.
  6. Gary
    @Oliver, we do not use cfclient - I've no idea what that is even. We write all our own code, and just use jQuery mobile as the wrapper for our mobile website versions.

    It may also surprise you that we also use CF version 7. It's been rock solid and stable for us. We just don't need all the other new tags; we can code anything in CF 7 and have a website with many advanced (if not enterprise) features (stock control, vouchers, internal ordering, barcode processing, SEO, feeds etc etc). We found CF 10+ to be totally unreliable in production and constant connector updates that don't work etc. Best thing is that our version is also FREE, we didn't pay a dime for it! Thanks Adobe.
  7. Oliver
    @Gary, thanks for your inputs. It sounds the core CF in early version already be real solid for your use. Well done.

    By saying that, I would like to give cfclient a try and appreciate if some strong real case.

    Many thanks.

    It is a good news for me that you have extended the mobile app submission date and I also want to submit my app.

    Hey, was a winner selected for this contest? I know there was at least one entry here: https://github.com/bdw429s/CFClient-Sampler but there hasn't been further mention of the contest on the official Adobe CF blog.
