ColdFusion 9 ORM does not respect security settings on the DSN

Now this this is surprising. During my first presentation on ColdFusion 9 and ORM, I was asked about security permissions on DSNs and how they impact ORM. So for example, if you go into the Advanced Settings of a DSN and only allow certain operations (Select, Update, etc), will that impact ORM? I told the attendee that I honestly wasn’t sure, but that I’d assume it would.

Turns out I was completely wrong. I edited one of my examples so that only SELECT operations were allowed. But this had no impact on the ORM operations I was allowed to do. I could still update, delete, and insert.

As I said – surprising – but I’m guessing that the DNS security operations must be something that ORM just doesn’t go through.

Very important updates to ColdFusion 9 Licensing

The EULA for ColdFusion 9 has several exciting changes. (Yes, excitement from a EULA!)

  • Usage with cloud computing is now supported. Each license of ColdFusion will limit you to a number of instances.
    • Standard 1 instance
    • Enterprise 10 instances
  • ColdFusion 9 boxes dedicated to testing or group development no longer require their own licenses. A license of ColdFusion 9 you buy for production will allow you to create the rest of your environment. This is in addition to the change in the EULA we made in ColdFusion 8 to cover passive backup servers. We made both of these changes because it was important to us that developers not be penalized for following best practices.

It’s important to note that these changes are not retroactive to previous versions of ColdFusion, only to ColdFusion 9.

CF 8: cftransaction – Added the setsavepoint value to the action attribute. Added the savepoint attribute.

savepoint : Optional
The name of the savepoint in the transaction. Setting savepoints lets you roll back portions of a transaction. For example, if your transaction includes an insert, an update, and a delete, and you set a savepoint after the update, you can roll back the transaction to exclude the delete.
