is it possible to pass data to an insert query in a cfc via javascript?

Hi, I have a cfc page containing an insert statement to a db and on my cfm page, I have various javascript functions, one in which is a save() function. In this function, I want to pass data from my form via javascript to the insert query in my cfc. Is this possible? If so, how are there any examples?

I will be attaching a code snippet shortly cause I am currently away from my pc where the code resides. In the meantime, if someone could give me any examples or references that would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can do this via an AJAX post to a remote function within your CFC.

Using a library such as jQuery will make this a 100 times easier. See below for some example code
/*AJAX call using Jquery*/

$.post("test.cfc?method=functionName", { name: "John", time: "2pm" },
   function(data){
     alert("Data Loaded: " + data);
   });

/*Code in your CFC*/
<cffunction name="functionName" access="remote" output="no">     
<cfquery datasource="yourDatasource">
    INSERT INTO yourTable
    (Name, Time) VALUES (<cfqueryparam value="#FORM.name#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar">,<cfqueryparam value="#FORM.Time#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar">)
</cfquery>
<cfreturn "Inserted correctly">
</cffunction>
