A coldfusion.eventgateway.GatewayHelper class instance, or null if the gateway does not have a GatewayHelper class.


ColdFusion calls this method when a ColdFusion application calls the CFML GetGatewayHelper function. The application then uses the gatewayHelper object methods to call gateway-specific utility methods, such as instant message buddy management methods.

public GatewayHelper getHelper()
// SocketHelper class implements the GatewayHelper interface
return new SocketHelper();
