Of all the things you most want to do buried deep within a CFSCRIPT block is manipulate databases. Invoking a tag while in script mode is impossible, unless you build your own CFC wrapper, which is clunky and horrendously inefficient.
OpenBlueDragon has just released the first couple of native functions that let you get in and around the power of queries but from a script.
These operate just like CFQUERY but at a script level.
And the hits just keep on coming. ;-) All these seemingly "little" things that are being added to OpenBD add up to a much improved devleoper experience. Grab the latest nightly build and give these a shot!
