Introduction to Custom Tags
ColdFusion custom tags are ColdFusion templates just like any other CFML file but are designed to be reused. Coders can save much time by packaging code that is used frequently or can easily add functionality by using free or inexpensive custom tags. There are two general categories of custom tags, one uses only ColdFusion's CFML code. The other packages C++, Java, or other languages into a custom tag that is used by ColdFusion. We'll cover only CFML based tags in this article.
