Adam's been busy recently. You'll've heard about his new book "
I know I have derided CFClient a lot, but it does have its good bits, and Adam has worked through them all and put a fairly accessible book together. Granted it's not very long, but for something that focuses on a single tag, I think that's fair enough. It's free and open source, so you should go get it, and give it a read. It might make you think again about whether or not to use CFClient. I have to admit it did give me pause for thought.
Go grab it from it's official website now (it's just a PDF): "CFClient The Good Parts".
I think Abram Adams (of trycf.com fame) said it best in his review when he said:
I felt like I was looking into the minds of Adobe engineersIt's exactly this attention to detail Adam Tuttle captures in this latest book.
CFML doyen Mark Drew had this to say:
I have been looking everywhere for an in-depth look at the useful features of the cfclient tag and I have to thank Mr Tuttle for providing it!
I am not good at reviews but I should say that this is not only The Good Parts, it is also the definitive guide.
I'll get back to you about the REST book next week (here it is: "Book review: REST Web APIs: The Book (win a copy here)"). The CFClient book'll keep you going until then.
