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?
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)>
