Integrating an eBay API for ColdFusion eCommerce

Like most owners of ColdFusion eCommerce Websites, you‘ve likely considered leveraging different platforms for selling online – and you would be wise to do so. Whether it be eBay, or Amazon, your ColdFusion Website can double – or tripletransactions if you have your website tuned correctly.

Integrating an eBay API for a ColdFusion Website brings many advantages. In addition to accomplishing the main objective of increasing business growth, it also centralizes and unclutters your CMS. Your back-end transactions, including eBay sales, will all be in one place. Utilizing just the one ColdFusion Website, as opposed to others without the eBay API, will significantly decrease additional work, allowing you to spend more time on what matters most: productivity. Inventory control becomes unnecessarily time-consuming when you have multi transactions on multi platforms. An eBay API will have your ColdFusion system control items directly on the eBay marketplace panel, so there’s no need to login elsewhere. Also, eBay listing updates can be performed automatically, so you don’t have to monitor them every time you sell an item.

We’ve witnessed the immediate, positive outcomes from ColdFusion websites and it’s an utter mystery why more companies aren’t taking this route.  If you have any questions about ColdFusion, or if you want a ColdFusion developer to integrate your Website with an eBay API, please contact us; we are only an email, an inquiry, or a phone call away.

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. Read the rest of this entry »

Designing a Mobile-Friendly Website

How to build Mobile-Friendly Websites

According to Thomas Petty, President of Bay Area Search Engine Academy, there are three ways to build mobile-friendly websites:

(1)    Using the latest Cascading Style Sheets, a website design that is mobile-responsive can be set up by you. This mobile device display’s optimization method is preferred by Google and allows for the rearranging, displaying or hiding of information across various devices. The devices include smartphones and desktop PCs. Petty claims that the content is simply hidden or rearranged depending on which device, but all content is equally served.

ColdFusion security HotFix may generate problems

Adobe released yesterday security hotfixes for ColdFusion 10, ColdFusion 11 and ColdFusion 2016. These patches address an issue that could be used in cross-site scripting attacks and contain an updated version of Apache BlazeDS to alleviate java deserialization. Some ColdFusion owners got their hands tangled up while trying to apply the patches.


Applying patches and executing hotfixes for ColdFusion doesn’t always go smoothly. If you, the business owner attempt to execute them without prior experience you might end up with errors, or simply “break” something. Contacting Adobe to fix a ColdFusion issue doesn’t come cheap, unless you are already paying the thousands-of-dollars per year Maintenance or Support packages. Adobe recommends that ColdFusion customers engage a Technician or a ColdFusion Company to apply the appropriate hotfix .

According to Adobe’s Security Bulletin, the hotfixes apply to Update 3 and earlier versions of ColdFusion’s 2016 release, Update 11 and earlier versions of ColdFusion 11, and Update 22 of ColdFusion 10. Adobe encourages customers to update ColdFusion, apply the requisite security configuration settings, and review Lockdown guides specific to their installation.

This is Adobe’s new security update for 2017, since last December when the ColdFusion fix patched a vulnerability that could have led to information disclosure. The ColdFusion update is the second that Adobe has released this month. Adobe patched many vulnerabilities, including a host of code execution bugs. Flash Player, Acrobat/Reader, Photoshop, Adobe Campaign, and Adobe’s Creative Cloud App all received updates as part of the regularly scheduled update.

Vulnerabilities in ColdFusion shouldn’t be neglected, and should be installed by experienced Technicians. If you need assistance, Ecom Solutions can help. You can always Email us or simply fill out a Request Form.

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,, 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.

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!

Advantages of Mobile Website Optimization


Advantages of Mobile Website Optimization

The Mobile Reality

Mobile is the new reality. If you’re thinking of creating or redesigning a website, it’s important to have your mind on mobile features. It doesn’t exactly take a scientific study to realize how prevalent mobile devices are in today’s society. People of all ages are now interacting with friends, family members, celebrities and brands in a continuous loop using mobile devices. Not upgrading your brand’s online identity to a mobile platform is like asking to be ignored. Of course, you can’t just throw together a quick mobile site and hope for the best. You need to be proactive about crafting an efficient, engaging site that gives users what they’re looking for immediately. If you’ve been putting off going mobile, time is running out before you get left behind in a big way. The good news is that it’s still not too late to learn about the things that make a mobile website such an important feature. Take a moment to learn about the real advantages to creating a mobile page to see how an upgraded website can enhance your brand.

Smooth User Experience
A website that doesn’t load on mobile devices is a website that frustrates people. As any marketer knows, creating a frustrating, time-consuming experience for people is a huge mistake. How does a mobile site help when someone is browsing your page in a hurry? Mobile websites are specifically designed to display beautifully on mobile devices. If you rely on a normal website, your visitors will be left dealing with images that are choppy or unable to load. Research in the world of website usability shows that pages that are optimized for mobile use result in significantly higher levels of satisfaction among users. That elevated level of satisfaction will cause users to have a positive impression of your service or brand right off the bat.

Smarter Than App Development
Do you know how much incentive it takes to click on an app and download it? It is kind of hard to believe that brands were scrambling to develop clunky apps just a few short years ago. The theory was that a brand needed to have a customized app for users to download. It didn’t take very long to realize that many mobile users just don’t have the time or incentive to clog their devices with excessive apps. Users want to access sites without any strings attached. A mobile site is far superior to an app because it offers instant access without very much thought. The big problem with apps is that they are expensive and time-consuming to develop. What’s more, an app can quickly become outdated and need upgrades. You’ll already have headaches to deal with before you even get into the topics of bugs, download errors or viruses. Apps can also disappear when users upgrade their phones. It goes without saying that website apps just aren’t customer-friendly.

The Speed Advantage
In this fast-paced world, a person could lose interest in your website between the time they click on a link and the time a first image loads. There are simply too many amazing things happening on the Internet for people to wait around for your slow page to load. This makes it very important for you to know that websites that aren’t optimized for mobile use load much slower than websites that are. You have mere seconds to grab and keep the attention of users in the digital world. The reality is that fickle users could be jumping to a competitor’s website by the time yours can display fully. Luckily, a mobile page is designed to load at the speed of lightning.

Immediate Interaction
Why put obstacles in the way of a user looking to purchase or consume what you’re putting out there. Make your site a one-stop shop for all of the information visitors are looking for. Click-to-call options, mapping functions, live chat and other features allow users to get what they need without visiting multiple pages. Location-aware technology can also provide you with a huge boost because it will connect nearby users to your website. Read the rest of this entry »
