What's New With 6.4.0
ColdBox 6.4.0 is more of a major than a minor release due to the amount of work we have done to bring you one of the most revolutionary features of this framework: Scheduled Tasks.
Scheduled tasks have always been a point of soreness for many developers in ANY language. Especially choosing where to place them for execution: should it be cron? windows task scheduler? ColdFusion engine? Jenkins, Gitlab? and the list goes on and on.
ColdBox Scheduled Tasks
The ColdBox Scheduled Tasks offers a fresh, programmatic and human approach to scheduling tasks on your server and multi-server application. It allows you to define your tasks in a portable Scheduler we lovingly call the
Scheduler.cfcwhich not only can be used to define your tasks, but also monitor all of their life-cycles and metrics of tasks. Since ColdBox is also hierarchical, it allows for every single ColdBox Module to also define a
Schedulerand register their own tasks as well. This is a revolutionary approach to scheduling tasks in an HMVC application.
