ColdFusion Application Pages

Create ColdFusion application pages to retrieve and output data for the Web. As described in the previous chapter, application pages can include ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML), HTML, JavaScript, and anything else that an HTML page can contain.

When clients request a ColdFusion application page:

  1. The Web server passes the requested page to ColdFusion Server.
  2. ColdFusion Server processes the page, generates output and returns this, HTML and other client-side technologies to the Web server.
  3. The Web server passes the page to the client.
  4. The client renders the page in its browser.
