Luis, This is all very impressive. Is it possible to directly call a controller cfc? I may need to do this for some remote calls (webservices, etc) and would want to the call to be something like: address.cfc?method=get&id=4

Hi Sam, This is possible. You can create a remote event on it that can return data to you. But you are bypassing the framework execution. So, most likely any framework related calls would fail. So there are two options 1) You make the remote method call but without any use of the framework (sort of defeats the purpose). Why? well, remember that coldbox injects the handler object with the running controller and with the request context. You can still use this technique but without using the framework calls. 2) Use the framework. How? Well, you would call index.cfm?event=ehTools.getSomething&id=4 Then in your event you will have to do your logic and you can use the framework architecture. As for returning the data, you can set the data to return on the request context: context.setValue("data",mydata) and then create a view that basically dumps the data to return back to the remote service. This is how I have integrated to Ajax. However, I this is a good view of how to activate a method for remote execution. I am taking my notes on this. Thanks, very good point.
