How to Write ColdFusion MX 7 Applications That Scale

Pay special attention to scaling issues when you are writing applications for a clustered environment. Poorly written code can suffocate any Web site, no matter how much hardware you throw at it. Successful building of applications that scale follows good coding techniques, concentrating on writing clean, well-thought-out code. Scalable code is well organized, modular in nature, structured, and free of common bottlenecks.

Code Organization

A stable and scalable application typically is the end product of careful design and planning before any code is written. Good software comes from good planning, and following common Software Design Life Cycle methodologies. Some attributes of good code are easy to spot: being well organized, sufficiently commented, and easy to follow. Your software should also be thoroughly documented—most people don't associate this necessity with scaling, but there is nothing worse than trying to grow, extend, and manage software over its life cycle without proper documentation.
