The enhancement in ColdFusion 9.0.1 allows the application to initialize the object that is being created. properties takes a struct with key being the property name. When the object is created, all the properties are populated with the passed struct.For example,

<cfset artistObj = entityNew("Artists",{FirstName="Tom",LastName="Ron"})>

Example

newArtistObj = EntityNew("Artists");
newArtistObj.setfirstname("John");
newArtistObj.setlastname("Smith");
newArtistObj.setaddress("5 Newport lane");
newArtistObj.setcity("San Francisco");
newArtistObj.setstate("CA");
newArtistObj.setPostalCode("90012");
newArtistObj.setphone("612-832-2343");
newArtistObj.setfax("612-832-2344");
newArtistObj.setemail("jsmith@company.com");
newArtistObj.setThePassword("jsmith");
EntitySave(newartistobj);
