Chapter 6. Advanced CFML Functionality

So far we have looked at how we can write CFML with tags and functions. This is a great way to develop web applications since it fits well with the way web pages are built, that is, through HTML.

In this chapter we are going to look at the alternative ways to write CFML language, namely, by using a scripting language called CFScript.

In this chapter, we will cover:

  • Scripting formats that are available in Railo Server
