Conclusions

ColdFusion provides a rich development environment in which the developer has a great deal of freedom. If you're in the business of developing ColdFusion (or any other) applications, however, it might make sense to adopt a methodology when developing applications. The most significant benefit from taking this approach is that you and others you work with will be able to more easily maintain the applications you create. Other benefits will vary a bit from one methodology to the next. However, all of the methodologies discussed in this chapter are intended to help you build more modular reusable code. Along with generally good coding practices, all these methodologies also help you write code more efficiently.

It's important to note that you do not need to use any of these methodologies to produce good ColdFusion applications. You should, however, adopt some sort of methodical approach to developing applications—perhaps something you and your associates develop on your own—so that you can still attain the benefits associated with using a methodology.
