CfcGntp - wrapper for ColdFusion to send Growl/GNTP messages
This is a little simple CFC (ColdFusion component/object) that enables sending notifications to a Growl/GNTP host. This should work under both Railo and Adobe ColdFusion and is programmed in cfscript CFML. The object works by calling the libgrowl jar, and is essentially a wrapper.
Basically it lets you send real-time alerts that pop-up on the desktop of the specified computer.
The cfc has been designed to be used as a singleton, i.e. instantiated in the Application scope or in a FW1 controller - scopes that exists for the lifetime of the application.
What would you use this for? Some possible use cases:
- Intranet situations
- Server/service monitoring for real time alerts
- Administrative interfaces
