Mac OS X Widget for ColdFusion 10

I decided to play around with OS X Widgets, see how to make one. My project is a tool to start/stop CF. This is totally an alpha build, but feel free to try it out and let me know how bad it is :)


1) I can't start CF using a asynchronous call due to some issue in the coldfusion script and some sort of security restriction. See here for info: https://discussions.a...­ This means the widget may appear to lock up until CF is started as it has to be started synchronously. Interestingly this issue exists for us humans when starting CF, but is swallowed, the widget API though hangs.
2) the status command does not work due to this issue: https://bugbase.adobe...­ Probably can figure out a workaround some day.
3) I know you will ask, I did, but I can not implement input type=file in the widget, thus you have to paste the CF path in. Only got to paste it once per instance, not terrible.
4) The widget is not setup to handle multiple instances yet.
