Chapter 28. ColdFusion Tips and Tricks > Server-Side Redirections in CFMX

Server-Side Redirections in CFMX

Submitted by Charlie Arehart, carehart@systemanage.com

Did you know that you can now do server-side redirection (a forward) in ColdFusion MX? It’s not being mentioned much, and some might not appreciate what doors this opens, but in the right circumstances, it’s a big improvement over our prior redirection via CFLOCATION. Though many didn’t know it, CFLOCATION did a client-side redirect, meaning a header was sent to the browser to have it request the new URL. One of the big challenges/ drawbacks of this was that no variables set in the caller were available to the called program.
