Integrating an eBay API for ColdFusion eCommerce

Like most owners of ColdFusion eCommerce Websites, you probably (and you should) try leveraging different platforms for selling online. Wether it be eBay, or Amazon, your ColdFusion Website can double, or triple its transactions if you have your ColdFusion developer tune it the right way.

Integrating an eBay API for a ColdFusion Website brings many other advantages besides increasing business. It brings centralization and unclutters your CMS. Your back-end transactions, including eBay sells will all be in one place. It’s nice to take care of only one ColdFusion Website, as opposed to others without the eBay API which will make you perform double work. Inventory control becomes very serious when you have multi transactions on multi platforms. An eBay API will have your ColdFusion system control items on the eBay marketplace directly from the panel, no need to login somewhere else. Also, eBay listing updates can be performed automatically, so you don’t have to babysit them every time you sell an item.

We’ve seen this done many times, and we always wonder why some people aren’t doing it yet. If you have any questions, or if you want a ColdFusion developer to integrate your Website with an eBay API, we are only an email, an inquiry, or a phone call away.

Walmart marketplace API written in ColdFusion

Walmart recently released its own Marketplace, in an effort monetize on their brand and why not – to create competition for Amazon, JET, or eBay. The Walmart Marketplace API allows merchants which register to become a partner, and is written in ColdFusion. Yes the versatile Adobe ColdFusion platform will be the launchpad for retailers, merchants, and sellers that want to exchange goods via the Walmart Marketplace.

The Walmart Marketplace API is comprised of, and can be broken down into two groups. The first being the Walmart Item API and the second one is the Walmart Transaction API. Based on the documentation there are a few steps that need to be taken before the code is well integrated and certified, so that you can move to production.

In other words, Sellers and Merchants that wish to use the Walmart Marketplace will need to integrate the ColdFusion based API with their Websites and Systems. If you need more information on integrating this product, or would like to consult with our ColdFusion Team – visit our Website – and we would be glad to help.

ColdFusion 10 and 11 hotfix from Adobe addresses XML parser flaw

A recent hotfix was released by Adobe in order to protect ColdFusion users from a number of flaws

Security updates were released to address vulnerabilities in ColdFusion versions 10 and 11. According to the Adobe Security Bulletin the hotfix includes an updated version of BlazeDS and addresses potential data leak (information disclosure) glitches.

Adobe recommends ColdFusion customers to update their systems and provides technotes for each version. Our Technicians would be more than happy to assist you and help you in case you need to apply ColdFusion updates.

Apparently an unrestricted XML parser may allow for external XML entities processing when parsing such document. The flaw may be exploited by unauthenticated remote hackers. The flaw can allow various attacks including: reading arbitrary, listing web/system directories, SSRF attacks / unauthorized access to restricted services running on the localhost as well as within the victim’s server network; SMB relay attacks; and temporary file uploads which may be used by attackers in combination with LFI vulnerabilities to supply malicious code. Attackers can also read critical ColdFusion configuration files such as neo-security.xml, password.properties, and neo-datasource.xml. They can read ColdFusion password hashes including the management console, database credentials, and gain access to a weakly protected ColdFusion system.

ColdFusion migration to Lucee is perfectly viable

Adobe’s ColdFusion is a powerful and very productive language, designed to be a RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool. It is essentially a big Java tag library with success in vertical markets and well accepted by Mid-to-Enterprise level Organizations. Though an excellent and versatile language, licensing costs have sometimes turned owners and developers to other options, especially in the wake of the new wave of open source platforms.

Here comes Lucee, offering an open source solution to the developers’ dreams. Not only is it free, but also it performs well, is stable, and is updated reasonably frequently. Lucee is compatible with contemporary ColdFusion script and tag language variants, also providing configurable support for legacy ColdFusion. The core features of Lucee provide easy to learn tags for everything from database queries to sending dynamic email messages to scripting connections with ftp and Amazon s3 storage. Almost anything you can do with ColdFusion, you can do with Lucee.

Our Team has extensive experience with the platforms, therefore if you need a transition from ColdFusion to Lucee, we are here to help. Just send us a request or call us and our Specialists will assist you!

Responsive Design on the ColdFusion Environment

As the amount of internet traffic served to mobile devices is on the rise, Responsive web design is becoming more and more important. The mobile trend is so popular that Google has started penalizing websites that aren’t mobile-friendly, and will boost the ones that have a Responsive mobile architecture, especially for searches originating on a mobile device. Let’s admit it: people like to be confortable and they are likely to be on the run, favoring the use of mobile devices. Meaning in the near, as well as the far future,  mobile usage (this includes mobile phones and tablets) will surely surpass desktop usage globally. (more…)

SSL and ColdFusion error 500

Your ColdFusion Website may yield errors related to SSL and the Java Environment, typically returning a 500 – internal server error or re-routing clients to the logon page. They won’t be able to make purchases or transactions.  If your ColdFusion Website has an E-Commerce component, or accepts payments via Merchant Accounts, Gateways, or credit card processing engines such as Authorize.net then you might already be looking for a fix.

This happens because the certificate issuing authority is not registered in the security keystore in the JVM that ColdFusion is running on top of. The problem can be solved by troubleshooting the SSL certificate for the Website or running Service. A ColdFusion programmer with administrative rights on the server can work on the SSL certificate into your ColdFusion Environment and help let your transactions / payments go through again.

You can always Contact or E-mail our ColdFusion and E-Commerce Specialists if you have questions or you need help
