In the previous article we had an introduction to the Application.cfc object and application variables. Next, we are going to discover the differences between application, session, and request scopes. We will learn how to share some information and how to protect the rest of the information in a controlled manner. In this article by John Farrar, author of ColdFusion 9 Developer Tutorial, we will have a look at the following topics:
- The special standard method events, which ColdFusion calls in the Application.cfc object.
- Custom tag paths and mapping settings inside the object—the two special functions of the Application.cfc object.
Plone is a powerful web application used mainly for website content management and comprised of many different, but related Python packages
In this third article of the article series by John Ward, Author of Plone 3.3 Site Administration we will learn :
- Examining themes in the ZMI
- Making changes through the Web
In this article by Daniel Barreiro and Dan Wellman, authors of the book YUI 2.8: Learning the Library, we're going to look at a very common web page element: navigation menus. The Menu widget provides a timesaving and code-efficient solution to common website application requirements.
The skills that you will take away from this article include:
- How to implement a basic navigation menu
- How to override the default sam skin
- How to create an application-style menu bar
There is a huge difference between a web application and a dynamic web page. Web applications persist basic information, so we can create things such as shopping carts, user authentication (login and logout), and much more. HTML helps us to click through pages with links. In this two-part article series, we will learn how we can use web server memory to create engaging and interactive web applications by using variable scopes.
In this article by John Farrar, author of ColdFusion 9 Developer Tutorial, we will have a look at the following topics:
- The life expectancy for various types of information. This affects the system memory and the place where different information is stored.
- The Application.cfc object class—the cornerstone of ColdFusion applications.
While Plone is quite fortunate to be built on top of the very safe and secure Zope 2 application server, there is always more we can do to make sure our site is running as safely and securely as possible.
Because security is such a big topic, there are many areas where we can perform audits and make improvements such as operating system (OS), flesystem (FS), through the web (TTW), and so on.
Lastly, there are some miscellaneous tasks that fall under the security umbrella; we can take this opportunity to learn them.
So let's get to it.
In this article by Alex Clark, author of Plone 3.3 Site Administration you will learn:
- Restricting TCP/IP access to localhost or LAN host
- Managing IP addresses and ports effectively
- Configuring the Zope 2 effective user dynamically
- Installing Cassandra to audit through the web (TTW) security
- Applying security and bug fixes to Plone
