Step 8. ColdFusion Application Framework > Creating an Application Framework

Creating an Application Framework

So far, our web pages share a common look and feel, but that is about all. For our web site to become a true dynamic web application, we need to tie all our pages together with some kind of glue. That glue is known as an application framework. This application framework lets all our pages know that they are part of the same application. In addition, it gives us the capability to share common global settings among all the pages in our application without having to pass those values manually via FORM or URL variables.

An application framework begins with the organization of the directory structure. An application begins with a root folder, such as our NewSite folder, and all files and folders beneath that root folder are usually part of the same application.
