Object-Oriented Programming: Why Bother?

  • Brian Kotek


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about the increasing focus on object-oriented programming (OOP) in the ColdFusion world. With the advent of ColdFusion Components (CFCs) in ColdFusion MX 6, and the constant improvement to CFCs in every version of ColdFusion since, OOP has not only become possible for ColdFusion developers, but is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for building applications. Why is this? And if you haven’t drunk the OOP Kool-Aid yet, why should you care? In this article, I’ll start with a brief overview of the fundamentals of OOP. Then I will focus on some reasons for taking the time to learn about it.
