Suprisingly, no one has blogged this or my google-fu isn't working correctly today. Here's a link to my using java to read a properties file in CFML gist over on github. Seems kind of stupid that CF has functions to handle INI files, but nothing to handle PROPERTIES files.
So, I finally got ahold of a macbook pro. I'm not a switcher per say. I feel this is more like filling in a gap in my household. While the household is predominantly windows, there's also a couple of installations of centos and unbuntu laying around. So, I'm no stranger to the command line (I prefer it at times in development). I got the laptop for a couple of different reasons, QA being one of them. Have you noticed that majority of the technical books are now teaching everything from a linux / osx point of view these days? I have. I was pretty impressed with my GoLang book actually taking the time to spell out some things on windows, but step into the world of Clojure, Ruby, or Nodejs/Grunt and you'll see nothing but mac/linux command line.
So, one thing I'm really surprised by is how inconsistent app installation is. I mean, every time I download a dmg file, I never know if I'm going to get an installer, a weird app like interface that insists I drag one icon to a folder or a mounted directory. WTF is up with that people?
I haven't had the need to install CF10 on Server 2012 yet, but Adobe is dragging their feet providing support for this. Michael A. Sheridan, III was kind enough to blog a workaround for those of you that need this. Thanks to Adam Cameron for tweeting about this. Update: Supposedly this only works for the 32 bit installer. I'm sure someone can find a similiar work-around for 64 bit installer. Make it happen!
