      What is CFC and how do I get it?

          CFC is a Cold Fusion Component, also known as a User Defined Function, and you can either create your own, or find them available for download (some free, some require a fee.)

           

          Typically, you would create a folder within the root of your site/application called "components" and set a mapping to that location within your application.cfc.  Then, whenever you need to call that CFC, there are several ways to access functions within the CFC.  My favourite is to:

           

          <cfset queryObj = new components.myCFC().myFunction() />
          <cfoutput query = "queryObj">
          ... your output code here...
          </cfoutput>
          

           

          That is CFC in a nutshell.

           

          HTH,
