Ayep, you read the title right. Quite frankly, it totally sucks that I have been forced to come to that realization, but I suppose in the end, it is better that I realized it before it was too late.

The other day Jason Durham posed a question to me:
How can I go about using multi-word actions, using hyphens as separators, in my ColdBox handlers?
After my initial "Why on earth would you want to do that?" response, Jason pointed out the SEO benefits of doing so, which makes perfect sense. (That's when I thought to myself, "Hmmm, why didn't I think of that?")

Transfer allows you the option of having the database handle your IDs for new records (e.g. 'identity' in MSSQL or 'auto_increment' in MySQL), which is the default behavior for Transfer, or you can have Transfer generate your new IDs for you by utilizing the 'generate' attribute on your ID tag in your transfer.xml config file, and setting it to 'true'. I personally prefer having the database handle my IDs for me, so I never really paid much attention to this particular feature of Transfer until recently.

Back in the ColdBox 2.5.1 release, a new feature was added: persist. Think of it as a sort of "flash memory", allowing your application to "remember" event variables when moving the user to the next event. I was recently asked about this feature, so I figured I would make a quick post about it in an effort to help more people.
