A Review of CFCs

ColdFusion Components (CFCs) are considered by Macromedia to be one of the most important features in ColdFusion. They enable programmers to create true structured programs (eliminating many of the shortfalls of the custom tag architecture), to allow grouping of related functionality in CFCs and packages, and to enable object-oriented programming with inheritance. CFCs are the building blocks of ColdFusion-based Web services.

In the Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7 Web Application Construction Kit, there is a good introduction to ColdFusion Components, their features, and many of the considerations of creating them. In this chapter, we'll discuss many of the more-advanced uses of CFCs, but first we'll review some basic terminology and see what it takes to build and use CFCs in ColdFusion.
