Using This Guide

Section 1 leads you through fundamental concepts and common procedures that you need to know in order to develop Web applications with ColdFusion Express.

Within most chapters in Section 1, you will apply the concepts and procedures that you learn in order to build a ColdFusion application that's modelled after the Human Resources Employee Manager - a simple example application that was installed with the ColdFusion Express software. This application allows the Human Resources staff of a large company to view important data about their employees.

The application is made up of ColdFusion application pages which you can view and build as you progress through this guide. The Human Resources Employee Manager relies on an Access database that was also installed with ColdFusion Express.
