Maybe others aren't as excited about this as I am, but having the getContextRoot() method available in Java/JSP applications has always been extremely handy, and I was just bemoaning the lack of this in CFMX the other day.
Bemoan no more! I finally had a chance to go over the CFMX 7 feature list in detail, and this one slipped by me: getContextRoot() is now available in CFMX 7. This will make writing context root-agnostic applications a lot simpler and is generally just a handy function to have available. One more reason to dive into CFMX 7!
