Chapter 31. Error Handling > Catching Errors as They Occur

Catching Errors as They Occur

Unless you are a really, really amazing developer—and an incredibly fast learner—you have seen quite a few error messages from ColdFusion, both during development and after deployment of your applications. ColdFusion is generally very good about providing diagnostic messages that help you understand what the problem is. Error messages are a developer's friends. These clever little helpers selflessly provide hints and observations about the state of your code so you can fix it as soon as possible. It's an almost romantic relationship.

Unfortunately, your users aren't likely to see error messages through the rose-colored glasses coders tend to wear. They are likely to call or page you or flood your in-box with unfriendly email until you get the error message (which they perceive as some kind of ugly monster) under control.
