6. Server-Side ActionScript > 6.2. The CF Object

The CF Object

The CF object allows SSAS to perform queries and HTTP calls through the ColdFusion server.

Using CF.http( )

ColdFusion supports the <cfhttp> tag, which allows ColdFusion applications to post to and retrieve content from remote web servers—or from your own web server. The CF.http( ) method mimics the functionality of this tag, as well as its child tag <cfhttpparam>.

Warning

CF.http( ) doesn’t include all of the functionality of the <cfhttp> tag. The ability to dynamically create queries using a .csv file is conspicuously absent from the CF.http( ) arsenal.

CF.http( ) has many possible uses:

  • Post searches and retrieve search results from different search engines
