In this section, you will find the release notes for each version we release under this major version. If you are looking for the release notes of previous major versions use the version switcher at the top left of this documentation book. Here is a breakdown of our major version releases.
This major release is focused on moving towards ColdBox 7 compatibility and the dropping of Adobe ColdFusion 2016 support.
This version keeps on the modernization path towards ColdBox 6 standards and Hibernate 5.x support. It also introduced Adobe 2021 support and paved the way for new functionality to be introduced in Hibernate 5 and 6.
A complete rewrite of the module to support a more modern and fluent approach to working with Hibernate/ColdFusion ORM. In this release, we had to support 3 versions of Hibernate: 3 (Lucee), 4 (ACF 2016), and 5 (ACF 2018), which in itself proved to be a gargantuan task.
We also focused on bringing more functional programming aspects to working with collections of entities and even introduced cbStreams as part of the cborm module. This gives you the ability to produce streams out of any method that produces a collection of entities.
We also focused on converting the state of an object graph to a raw ColdFusion data struct as we live in a world of APIs. We include the mementifier module which allows every single entity to have a getMemento() method that will convert itself and its relationships to raw CF data constructs so you can take that state and either marshall it to another format (JSON,XML, excel) or audit the state.
The first version of the cbORM series focused on expanding the native ColdFusion ORM methods and exposing much more Hibernate functionality to the CFML world.
