There is no way to "get" the default datasource set in the application.cfc from other code.

Create an application.cfc. Put a <cfset this.datasource = "someDSN" > in it.In a CFM or CFC that uses this application.cfc try and determine what it is...

You can not set this.datasource in application.cfc to set a default datasource. Then it is never accessible again.  Much of our older code requires us to pass it. To do this we have to set values into application scope, etc...also for some debugging it would nice to output what it is... Can we add getAppDatasource or just expose it in the application scope somehow?
