Design and Implementation of a Data Driven Application Using ColdFusion-- A case study of the Mammoth Cave National Park and WKU joint project

Introduction of the project
Introduction of the Project ColdFusion

Mammoth Cave National Park contains the world’s longest known cave system and is the most heavily researched and best understood cave system in the world. Each year the park receives numerous requests by researchers and students for resources of the Mammoth Cave system and its related regional karst landscape. In order to provide access to this material, Mammoth Cave National Park Staff and Western Kentucky University Libraries initiated a joint project. They began by reviewing each institution’s holdings related to Mammoth Cave National Park, cataloguing identified materials, and developing a joint Mammoth Cave Web site hosted by Western Kentucky University. At the beginning of this project, the team kept user flexibility and searchability in mind and pursued a data-driven dynamic site instead of a content-driven static site.


Why create a data driven site
Why Create a Data Driven Site ColdFusion

  • Maintenance of a content-driven static Web site can be very tedious

  • Provide customized information and user interactive capability

  • Demand for a searchable site and frequently updated contents


What you need to create a static website
What You Need to Create a Static Website ColdFusion

  • Traditional static websites are inexpensive to run and load quickly for users

  • Need a computer with a Web server software such Apache or Internet Information Services

  • Simple HTML code saved on Web server



What you need to create a data driven site hardware requirements
What You Need to Create a Data Driven Site – ColdFusionHardware Requirements

  • Intel-based systems, such as Windows and many Unix/Linux systems

  • Hardware with 256 MB of RAM is recommended

  • Disk space depends on the size of the software and the space needed to save the data


What you need to create a data driven site software requirements
What You need to Create a Data Driven Site – ColdFusionSoftware Requirements

  • A Web server (such as Apache or Internet Information Services, same as static site)

  • A Web application server (such as ColdFusion MX, Oracle application server …)

  • A database server (a database management system, such as MySQL, Oracle database, MS SQL server …)


What you need to create a data driven site programming languages
What You need to Create a Data Driven Site – ColdFusionProgramming Languages

  • ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) : an easy-to-learn tag-based scripting language that embedded inside HTML code

  • JavaScript: cross-platform, object-oriented scripting language that allows you to create dynamic web pages

  • Structured Query Language (SQL): the language used to interact with Oracle, Microsoft SQL or MySQL. SQL is the standard language for relational database management systems









Conclusion
Conclusion ColdFusion

The concept of a data driven Web site is not hard to understand, but fully integrating new technology into the design and implementation is a challenge. ColdFusion is a reliable and scalable development platform and is powerful enough to create Web-based application. The dynamic Web site powered by ColdFusion will deliver information in a more accurate and timely manner and the site itself will be far easier to manage and maintain.


Thanks! ColdFusion
