New Tags

Below you will find a list of tags that are only available in Railo and are not part of the CMFL standard.


The tag cfadmin is used in the web and server administrator to manage and edit Railo settings.
A detailed description for this tag is not yet available.


This works exactly the same way as the cfmail tag. It has the same attributes.

The Internet Message Access Protocol or IMAP is one of two of the most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval, the other being POP3. Virtually all modern e-mail clients and servers support both protocols as a means of transferring e-mail messages from a server, such as those used by Gmail, to a client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird and Microsoft Outlook.

Many implementations of webmail use IMAP to retrieve e-mail messages from a server and display them within a web browser, making the use of this protocol transparent to the user (read more on Wikipedia),


Analog to the method getPageContext().forward()(Java-Doc PageContext). Leads the request to a different page. This tag acts like the tag cflocation except that the relocation is done directly on the server.


The tag CFFINALLY inside a CFTRY/CFCATCH block will always be executed, no matter whether an error occured or not. It is used in the following way:

   code that might produce an error
      catch a certain error
      ... code that needs to be executed always

It can be used in order to close a file for example.


The tag CFVIDEO allows you to obtain information about a video, convert videos from one format into another, cut images from the video or concatenate two videos. It is only available in the enterprise version of Railo 3.0. Read more on the multimedia functionality.


The tag CFVIDEOPLAYER allows you to display a video in flash (flv) format. It includes the complete functionality to display the player with the necessary html code. Read more on the multimedia functionality.


The tag CFVIDEOPLAYERPARAM is needed when you want to display a playlist in your flash player. Read more on the multimedia functionality.


Simplification of the tag <cfloop contition="cont">, analog to the cfscript "while" loop.

<cfset count=0>
<cfwhile count LT 10>
   <cfset count=count+1>
