    "Application" level Arrays?

    leatherjeep Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I am using CF 8.  I am trying to find out if it is possible to make an array that is kept on the server, rather than the client.  There are a couple of reasons I want to do this.

       

      First, I don't want to use a database table to keep the data, because it will be under heavy use, and will cause database exceptions when the resources are locked.

       

      Two, I need a centralized location for the data, so that users from a variety of locations can access and update it.

       

       

      Is an "application level array" possible in CF?

       

       

      Many thanks,

       

       

      Gary

          Assuming you have properly set up applicaiton variables in the Administrator and an <cfapplication...> tag OR Application.cfc file.

           

          <cfset application.myStruct = structNew()> should get you started.

           

          Or I guess since you asked for an array.

           

          <cfset application.myArray = arrayNew(1)>
