Development Methodologies

A development methodology is simply a documented set of procedures and guidelines that are used when building an application. These can be things like directory structure, file-naming conventions, and application flow. Development methodologies are not necessarily specific to ColdFusion; they can be used when building any type of application. Later in this section I list a few methodologies that have evolved around ColdFusion application development.

Why use a development methodology at all? Have you ever tried to work on a web site or application that you wrote some time ago? It’s hard enough trying to figure out what you were thinking a year and a half ago, but now imagine that someone else wrote the code. You’ve got next to no hope of figuring out what the person was trying to do.
