I'm running Coldfusion 9 64, connecting to MSSQL 2008 R2 Express. I use a custom CRUD abstraction layer for all of my data and I'm having trouble adding support for the geometry and geography data types. I presume this same issue would apply to all native spatial data types across databases. I need to know either what cfsqltype to use or what alternate method is available. I read a passing reference to CF_SQL_BLOB being safe, but no mention of how well it supports native operations. How does ORM (or real Hibernate) handle this?
