Restarting your Coldfusion Application without restarting ColdFusion

To restart you application place the following line of code in your Application.cfc within the OnRequestStart function.

<cfscript>
     if(isdefined("url.restart")){
         OnApplicationStart();
         //OnSessionStart();
     }
 </cfscript>

Now anytime you pass the URL string “restart” your application will restart. Obviously you can use whatever method you chose, but this will point you in the right direction.
