Building the Application Framework and Handling Errors in ColdFusion 9

Control Page Events and Improve Site Performance

AppFrameworkHandlingErrorsColdfusionAnyone who works with ColdFusion-based websites should understand the application and error handling frameworks. Taking advantage of the application level allows you to control events in your pages, offers better performance for your website and web pages, and gives you complete control of error handling within a site. Above all, understanding the above can make it easier for you to remedy any caching issues through platforms such as spring cache. Ultimately, if you were not already aware, caching is the process of saving data temporarily so the site, browser or app does not need to download it each time. There are lots of ways data can be cached but typically it is the duty of the website owner to set what is known as a header on the data. This tells the computer being used that the data can be cached, and stipulates for how long. The website owner then sets caching instructions and your browser gets told what to download. There should also be instructions on how and where to store any temporary files. Essentially you can manually change policies on what is cached at any time, to reduce what is being stored on your device. In this unique workshop from expert developer Candyce Mairs, you´ll use ColdFusion Builder as the development environment for building a complete ColdFusion application and error handling framework. Additional topics include speeding up your ColdFusion performance using query caching and looking at your server performance using the Server Monitor.
