Enhancement to replace() in Railo 4.1

Gert Franz has just given a very impressive presentation on some new features Railo has added in 4.0 and 4.1. There's too many to go through, but here's one that interested me.

In Railo, the replace() function can now take a struct containing key/value pairs which represent the substitution tokens / values to replace. EG:

cf.Objective() day 1 - brain dump

OK, I'm fed up with staring at the ceiling fr the last 3h since I woke up around 4:30am (or "9:30am, you lazy bastard, get up" as my still-UK-homed brain was telling me), so I'll knock out a quick article on my thoughts on yesterday's Day 1 of cf.Objective().

What I plan to see @ cf.Objective()

Apropos of not much, here's how my thoughts on what I intend to go see @ cf.Obejctive() are currently falling together. All, obviously, subject to change.


Alex and I won't be getting in to MSP until around midnight (ie: at the end of Weds), so I'll be missing all the pre-conf socialising, unfortunately. Because I lack common sense and good judgement when it comes to whether or not it's an appropriate time to have a beer, I might sniff around to see whether anyone is still propping up the hotel bar. Although I will have just got off 10h of flying, and my brain will be saying "it's 6am", so I dunno. We'll see.

In a surprise move... I am going to cf.Objective(). So that's quite cool. My mate Alex Skinner is heading over from Blighty too, and he convinced me to tag along. The lads (and guests) from CFHour also had a hand in convincing me I really ought to make it, as the presentations people described they're giving sound excellent.
