Bulk loading data in to databases

There was a thread on CF-Talk about how best to split a large file up into records and then import them into a database - it happened to be MySQL but this note applies to every database I've ever used (including Oracle and MSSQL).
The quick summary is 'don't use ColdFusion for this'. Sometimes all you have is a hammer, and so everything looks like a nail - but there are much much more robust and much much faster ways of doing this.

In the previous part, we saw how you can easily get up and running with the AOP features of ColdSpring in a ColdFusion project. But what practical use can this be put too ?
In this part I will show a simple piece of AroundAdvice that helps with reporting exceptions to clients of services. The next part will present a more complicated example - using BeforeAdvice to enforce security constraints and time-limited tokens.

Scotch on the Rocks, day 3 (live)

Sean Corfield, Event driven programming in ColdFusion
richer ui interfaces require more interaction (and less structured flow) than simply responding to clicks
decouple where things happen from what happens with them
multiple handlers for an event, how to define this:
configuration - ModelGlue, Mach-II, JavaScript and Flex
flex is more implict than JavaScript or CF frameworks - combobox listens to events on the dataProvider by itself.
convention - event user.list maps to user CFC list() method
