Chapter 33. ColdFusion Markup Language (... > Using ColdFusion for Database Operat...

Using ColdFusion for Database Operations

The main purpose of ColdFusion is to provide a high-level programming interface for data-enabling Web sites. Thus, the kernel of ColdFusion functionality focuses on the four basic database operations: retrieve, update, insert, and delete. One tag, cfquery, handles all four operations. The database functionality is expressed in a Structured Query Language (SQL) statement contained between the start and end tags.

You can greatly enhance your ability to interact with databases in ColdFusion by learning some beyond-the-basics SQL. On the other hand, all the examples provided in this section were auto-generated with Dreamweaver, as described in Chapter 13. You may find it faster and easier to generate basic SQL with Dreamweaver. Even if you do not use Dreamweaver, the material in this section will help you understand the code that Dreamweaver generates, in case you want to modify it.
