Part 1: Week 1 At a Glance > Building a Database and Organizing Data

Day 4. Building a Database and Organizing Data

Now that we've covered database concepts, it's time to start thinking about real-life stuff such as what kind of information you're actually going to share with the world. When you design a database for use with ColdFusion or any other Web application, it's important to plan ahead and work to keep your file size to a minimum. Smaller, well-organized databases make for faster search times, happier users, and fewer hassles when you have to make changes or updates. For the same reasons, it's important to spend a few moments in thoughtful reflection before setting up ColdFusion datasources.

In this section I'll look at the following:

  • Database software supported by ColdFusion

  • ColdFusion as a database-to-Web gateway

  • Creating a data map

  • Introducing data relationships

  • Designing a sample database

  • Creating data relationships

  • Table and database security issues

  • Populating a database
