Advanced ColdFusion 9 Development provides ColdFusion application developers with the knowledge and hands-on practice that they need to build, maintain, and scale effective web applications. Topics include using the Application Framework, creating advanced queries, manipulating complex data in arrays and structures, structuring your code with ColdFusion Components, gracefully handling errors and exceptions, encapsulating your user-interface with custom tags, leveraging external Java code libraries, and creating highly interactive interfaces using Flash Forms. It includes optional content on exposing and reusing application functionality as web services and working with XML documents. This course focuses on creating and delivering scalable and well-performing applications.
This course is for developers with prior ColdFusion experience. To take this course, you should have:
• Complete the Fast Track to ColdFusion 9 course, or the equivalent experience building ColdFusion applications.?• Experience developing web applications using ColdFusion for at least three months upon completion of the Fast Track to ColdFusion 9 course.?• Practical experience using CFML tags, functions and variables.?• Practical experience with the SQL command set, including SELECT, INSERT and UPDATE
Note: The curricula below comprise activities typically covered in a class at this skill level. The instructor may, at his/her discretion, adjust the lesson plan to meet the needs of the class.
