Server-side redirects in CFMX

Did you know that CFLOCATION is a client-side redirect? Do you know what that means, and what the cost is?

Did you know that CFMX has added a server-side redirect--in getpagecontext().forward()? Do you know that that means, and what the benefit is?

Did you know that I've written a custom tag, CF_FORWARD, to encapsulate calling this new function and handling some of the common challenges of working with it?

All this and more are explained in my June 2002 CFDJ article, "New Possibility in CFMX: Server-side Redirects". You can read it, and all my articles, online at
