Chapter 12. Using the ColdFusion Application Framework

Chapter 12. Using the ColdFusion Application Framework

When you first start working with ColdFusion, you'll likely be focused on mastering how to write short scripts that process a form or some other simple task. ColdFusion is fine for this kind of thing, but eventually you'll want to start getting several scripts to work together as an integrated application. ColdFusion supports you in this effort by means of the ColdFusion application frameworka set of features that enables you to share variables across requests for different scripts and to do standard processing both before and after the execution of any script. The application framework acts as glue that helps your individual scripts to work in concert and produce a richer level of functionality for end users.

In this chapter, you'll learn how to

  • Set up an Application.cfm file

  • Use application (or global) variables

  • Prevent users who are not logged in from seeing a password-protected page

  • Provide a customized response to errors that occur

  • Implement standard processing at the end of a request
