Cfinsert & cfupdate (and rename of cfscript to dbinsert and dbupdate)

I’d like to propose that cfinsert and cfupdate get an added attribute “fieldObject” this would allow the form scope to be replace by a structure of keys.

IMHO it would also be fitting to change insert and update tag related functions to dbinsert and dbupdate as the former are ambiguous and generic , the suggested names are more obvious.

the fieldlist attribute could then be used in conjunction with this object to limit fields, so basically the ‘fieldObject’ simply overrides

It would be a quick change, three lines of code (adding the parameter, adding the null reset, and adding a line to write over the form variable by chaing line 238)

Form form = pageContext.formScope();


Form form = fieldobject ? fieldObject : pageContext.formScope();
