Request, url, form, oh my!

A feature suggestion for lucee would be to be able to put all the scopes and things already into the Request scope. It’s an odd scope I guess as from my point of view it should contain things like the URL, FORM, HEADERS, COOKIES in it so you can see what is in it instead of relying on random functions.

What do people think in having (pre-populated):

Request.FORM -> FORM
Request.URL -> URL
Request.HEADER -> getHTTPRequestData()
Request.COOKIE -> COOKIES

It seems (maybe just to me) but that is the correct place for these things?

MD

im for that, and also unioning the form and url scope variables directly
into the request scope. that way you could access them easier for the 99%
use case of the two not overlapping, but still get at the variables in the
proper place if you need to make the distinction.

I’d also like to see it shortened to req, but thats personal preference.On Monday, February 9, 2015 at 9:15:23 AM UTC-6, Mark Drew wrote:

I’ve always treated the request scope as a scope for variables that are
request specific, but not provided by external input. Much as PRC is
designed for use in ColdBox (and others).

I think it makes perfect sense that way and wouldn’t be a fan of changing
it.On 9 February 2015 at 17:15, Jonas Hauß <@Jonas_Hauss> wrote:

Makes sense to me on a gut level, but you can already do that in
Application.cfc, if that’s your preference, and clear the original scopes
too.On Monday, February 9, 2015 at 10:15:23 AM UTC-5, Mark Drew wrote:

OK then can we have a HEADERS scope then rather than explicitly trying to get them with getHTTPRequestData() and for consistency can we then have getHTTPQueryData() and getHTTPPostData() ?

+1 for unioning form and url. I already use this in my OnRequestStart()
structAppend(request, url, false);
structAppend(request, form, true);Am Montag, 9. Februar 2015 16:15:23 UTC+1 schrieb Mark Drew:

What do people think in having (pre-populated):

Request.FORM -> FORM
Request.URL -> URL
Request.HEADER -> getHTTPRequestData()
Request.COOKIE -> COOKIES

It seems (maybe just to me) but that is the correct place for these

It seems (maybe just to me) but that is the correct place for these things?

I kinda like having the flexibility to do what I want to the URL and FORM
scope. Too many codebases already use request scope for something
meaningful. I am all for breaking backwards compatibility when it makes
sense but this feels like changing things just to be changing them. Besides
if you want to stuff them all into the request scope you can already so
that if you want wish very few lines of code.

Most frameworks have combined URL and FORM scopes since way back in FB
days, but there are valid reasons for having them separate sometimes too.

There are so many other more worthy candidates for change.

Further to the REQUEST / URL / FORM discussion, I have often thought that
the URL and FORM scopes should be read only as is the case with CGI. i.e.
you can’t change the past. The same could also be said for the ARGUMENTS
scope.

Thinking about it further, scopes themselves could then be divided into two
categories, reference and storage:

Reference: URL, FORM, CGI, ARGUMENTS
Storage: SERVER, APPLICATION, SESSION, COOKIE, CLIENT, REQUEST, VARIABLES,
LOCAL, THREAD…

Of course, this would break a lot of code and not something that could be
implemented lightly (should anyone actually agree).On 10 February 2015 at 10:10, Dominic Watson <@Dominic_Watson> wrote:

No it’s not. At all. REQUEST - a scope for storing variables that are
specific to, and should stick around for the life of, the REQUEST. That is
its intention that I have understood since my very first day with CFML.
Having a distinction for the various forms of request input is useful.
Mixing them into one for your application trivial via Struct append,
request.append(), etc.

I’m not dead against having the other scopes mixed in to the request
(certainly for it as a feature flag), but I feel that the language would
lose some precision by enforcing it and to no great benefit.

That’s kinda “let’s pretend it’s something other than what it’s name
suggests… you know… because”. Which is the same rationale I’ve heard
from everyone who has an opinion on it.

I think the request scope has been a white elephant since CF5, and it
makes sense to “reclaim” it to be something more along the lines that the
HTTP spec suggests it might be intended for.

I’ve always treated the request scope as a scope for variables that are
request specific, but not provided by external input. Much as PRC is
designed for use in ColdBox (and others).

I think it makes perfect sense that way and wouldn’t be a fan of
changing it.

Small edit… I meant to say “Making two ways to access the other
scopes…”
