I'm having a surprising amount of trouble finding out how I can have a user action fire off a background coldfusion process. I know this can be done with cfschedule, but i need to pass specific parameters to the template before proceeding.
I'm looking for a way to pass parameters to a CFM and run it, but not hang the user up in the process. Basically, I want to initiate a rather large FTP upload with what the user has entered into the html form.
Is there a way to allow the user to write the file to the server and locate away, while in the process, firing off a template that will run a rather long process for moving the file to where it needs to be?
