Understanding Objects, Methods, and Properties

Programming languages are developed to solve certain problems or enable certain functionalities—they don't just pop up from nowhere. For example, Flash ActionScript was created to enable developers to get the most out of native Flash capabilities and features. For this reason, several features of ActionScript are unique to Flash, and these features distinguish ActionScript from languages similar to it, such as JavaScript.

ASP and ColdFusion are no different. Each was designed to enable dynamic Web site functionality within the context of the HTTP protocol. Their respective developers knew that you would want to do certain tasks, such as send data between pages, connect to databases, and generate email messages. To simplify these tasks, each language includes built-in objects. Objects are generic entities created for the purpose of simplifying a given task. For example, ASP's NewMail object makes it easy to create and send new mail messages from within ASP.
