Server Paging in Coldfusion 8

hefterr asked
Last Modified: 2012-04-18
I work for a small company  and I need advice on a common technique in ColdFusion 8.  Perhaps you can point me to a tutorial on the web and/or sketch out the approach:

I need to display the results of a query set (say list of companies) along with a checkbox next to each listing.

I want to do some standard paging controls using Coldfusion server side processing (I don't know Javascript/Jquery/Ajax).

So I'd like to list the first 25 entries and give the user the controls:
-  next 25
-  prev 25
-  last 25
-  first 25

Whenerver the user hits one of the control images the page would be submited and the appropriate page displayed from the server.

I also need to keep track of the items selected (via the checkbox) throughout the different pages (array as a session variable?).

I imaging I could hack out an approach and come up with a "square wheel" - but I imagine this is done commonly.

Thanks much in advance,
