salesForceCFC v0.2 Released with Documentation and Test Platform

I appreciate the positive feedback and suggestions I have received on the initial release of salesForceCFC. So I took the time to put together some stuff that will help implement it.

The latest package includes a landing page, for testing and a link to the cfcdocs.

The test form, will run thru the basic creation of the object, login, and test each method.
It is intended to be used as a diagnostic. I added a validate() method, as well. It checks the objects state and looks for an active secure session before trying to send any SOAP requests. The return structs will provide full error information and help you track down the cause quickly.

To download check out the project salesForceCFC at RIAForge

For the latest changes, instructions, and usage notes check out the readme.txt, now included with the package.
