Coding Standards

When developing an application with Macromedia ColdFusion MX, remember that how you code can sometimes have as much of an effect on your application's performance as what you code. Opinions differ within the community as to which coding methodology is the best choice and how one can—and should—perform certain CFML operations. In truth, the best methodology is simply to have a methodology. Chapter 37, “Development Methodologies,” discusses some of the more prevalent ColdFusion development methodologies in greater detail.

What you need to understand prior to implementing a specific methodology is that your choices as a developer can cause degradation in your application's performance. Even though you can code exactly the same functionality a hundred different ways, you should consider some general guidelines when writing your code to keep your application performing at the best level possible.
