Replacing CFML Tags With Your Own

Spike Milligan has posted a blog entry on how to replace CF tag processing with your own functionality. Obviously, this is a dangerous thing to do (not that I would not do it myself). But having said that, this makes for interesting reading. See

    perhaps it is dangerous but it sure helps support your "cf is java" contention.

    I did mull over whether or not to blog this, but a few people suggested that it would be good info to have out there.
    The only time I’d recommend using it is when it will save you a lot of time when debugging, or when you want to run a commercial application that was written for a server like BlueDragon and uses some of the tags not supported by ColdFusion.
    Other than that, it will almost certainly be a maintenance headache.

    Spike, had I had thought of that one, I’d have blogged it too. 🙂
