Summary

Most ColdFusion applications you'll build have a database at their heart. If you're new to databases, think of them as mini-libraries that organize and relate data by common traits. If you know someone's name, databases make it easy to find the corresponding address, and so on.

When you use a database as the backbone of a ColdFusion application, define it as a datasource with CF's Administrator software. Doing so tells the program where the database is on the system, and opens up an ODBC pipeline that connects ColdFusion directly to the database.
