How to use ORM and onSessionEnd()

December 16, 2010
At 16applications I use ORM extensively. Recently I wanted to track when users sessions timed out which the onSessionEnd function in Application.cfc is perfect for.

onSessionEnd is interesting in that its not part of a standard ColdFusion request process which ORM is somewhat dependent on. In order to use ORM inside it I had to use ormFlush() to get changes to flush to the database.

function onSessionEnd( SessionScope ) { if ( structKeyExists( arguments.SessionScope, "loginTrackerId" ) ) { var lt = entityload("loginTracker", {loginTrackerId=arguments.SessionScope.loginTrackerId}, true ); lt.setOutDT( now() ); lt.setTimedOut( true ); ormFlush(); } }
