This post is to explain how to test your cfc to make sure they are working the way that you meant. I am wondering if it is possible to test a cfc directly using cfdump? However, since you don’t run a cfc directly, this may not work.
<cfcomponent> <cffunction name="getArtist" access="remote" returntype="query"> <cfset var qRead = "" /> <cfquery datasource="cfartgallery" name="qRead"> SELECT artistid, firstname, lastname, email FROM artists </cfquery> <cfreturn qRead /> </cffunction> </cfcomponent>
to test the cfc I create a test file and invoke the cfc and then use cfdump to see the results
<cfinvoke component="ArtistGateway" method="getArtists" returnVariable="qRead"> <!--- dump the output---> <cfdump var = "#qRead#">
