CreateObject("com", class, context, serverName) CreateObject("CORBA", class, context, locale) CreateObject("Java", class)
Creates ColdFusion components and COM, CORBA, and Java objects. This function can be disabled in the ColdFusion Administrator.
The CreateObject function creates and manipulates component object model (COM) objects. You can invoke an automation server object type that is currently registered on a computer. To create a COM object, you must provide the following information: the object's program ID or filename, methods and properties available to the object through the IDispatch interface, and arguments and return types of the object's methods.
The CreateObject function calls methods on CORBA objects. The objects must be defined and registered for use.
Java Object Functions
Functions create and use Java objects and, by extension, EJB objects.
