Blackstone Demo

Ben Forta has published a blog post regarding his presentation at CFUN. He demoed a new Blackstone feature, calling it event gateways. "essentially allowing events other than HTTP requests to trigger ColdFusion processing. The example I gave was dropping a file into a folder (maybe via an FTP upload), the act of which fired an OnAdd method in a CFC to be invoked, and the code in that method read the file and updated a database with its contents"



This sounds really great; firing off code based on other triggers really opens up a lot of possibilities for ColdFusion.
