Default Proxy for ColdFusion
Ever had to develop an application that used
cfhttp? Ever done this on a machine that is behind a proxy?
If the answer to those two questions is yes then you may have written some bung code like this:-
<cftry> <cfhttp url="http://www.simonbaynes.com/rss.cfm" proxyserver="255.255.255.255" port="80" throwonerror="true" /> <!--- if there is an error then we are on live ---> <cfcatch type="any"> <cfhttp url="http://www.simonbaynes.com/rss.cfm" throwonerror="true" /> </cfcatch> </cftry>
This is totally unnecessary as with some
jvm.config arguments you can set a default proxy for your ColdFusion instance.
