Many times we need a quick and easy way of importing data into our website databases. The CSV file format is one of the defacto standards for moving data between databases easily. Virtually all databases allow exported to CSV format. And virtually all database support importing a CSV formatted file. So why use Coldfusion to do this mundane task? Simply put it is database independant - in this example I created a simple script that reads a CSV file and inserts the records into a matched mySQL table. When I first started looking at this I was surprised that I could find very little of how to achieve this. So now that I have it worked out I thought I could share this little piece...

With AJAX applications giving us a lot more power than an "old school" web 1.0 page, it isn't unusual for someone to just sit on one page and fire off various operations that use HTTP to fetch and present data. This works fine until you leave the site alone for too long and your session times out. (I'm assuming most folks use a time based session, much like how ColdFusion works.) The question is - what happens in your current AJAX based application when a user's session times out?

There is a solution...
