The amazing adventures of Doug Hughes

Please join the Online ColdFusion Meetup group for this FREE event, the second of two ColdFusion talks by Doug Hughes.

Doug Hughes will present on Reactor, a new persistence framework he has been working on. Reactor is an “Inline Dynamic Database Abstraction Generator”. What this means is that by using Reactor you can dynamically generate database objects on the fly in your code as needed. Additionally, these objects will be rewritten as your database changes. Reactor is simple, quick and powerful.

Time and Date:

This meeting will be on Thursday, January 19, 2006 at 12:00 (noon) US/Eastern time. Please refer to: http://www.timezoneconverter .com

    Excellent Presentation, although, IE and Firefox keeps crashing towards the end of the presentation. I just want to tell you that after veiwing your presenation I’m now 1/3 done in converting my code to use reactor in less then 4 hours.

    Thanks for an awesome product.

    Sorry the link keeps crashing. At least the first half worked for me the other day. Not sure what to say there… call Adobe?

    Anyhow, glad you’re digging Reactor. Please,join the mailing list. Contribute to the project. Become part of the community!


  7. Is there somewhere i can download the presentation from as the breeze feed is quite slow and audio and presentation go out of sync.

    Quiksilv – Sorry, but I don’t think so. I don’t know of anyone to talk to either.


  9. John Crosby said:

    I’m looking for some help getting Reactor running. Is there a forum or
    something that is available.

    Every time I set up a project or sample I get the following error:
    All of my mappings and config seem to be correct.

    The value returned from function init() is not of type

    What am I missing in the set up?


    – John

    I suggest the reactor mailing list. Send a message to with subscribe in the subject. This should do the trick for you!

    Its the best place to get help.


  11. I tried to subscribe reactor mailing list (emailed to with subject “subscribe” ), but kept on getting “Sorry, you do not have permission to post to the mailing list.”.
    how to subscribe the mailing list?
