Problem Description:
Although CFQUERY and CFINSERT no longer require DATASOURCE to be defined, if it was defined in application.cfc, CFUPDATE still does.

Steps to Reproduce:

Define a datasource in application.cfc.  Attempt to use CFUPDATE without the datasource parameter to submit form changes.

Actual Result:

Error.

Expected Result:

No Error.

Any Workarounds:

Rewrite.  Submit SQL Update statement with CFQUERY.

Comments:

I was checking the documentation of cfupdate and cfinsert [https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/cfml-reference/coldfusion-tags/tags-i/cfinsert.html] [https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/cfml-reference/coldfusion-tags/tags-u-z/cfupdate.html] and found that datasource attribute is optional for *cfinsert* but mandatory in *cfupdate* tag. Are there any specific reasons for it? Logically its mandatory while making DML operations but since it can be moved to Application.cfc, i think one of the tags made it optional.
