Query Caching in ColdFusion

Many projects start small with one ColdFusion web server and one database server. Then the development team encounters one of two motivating factors   the need for more uptime (availability) or the need for more capacity (scalability). This article discusses the latter, enhancing scalability through the use of query caching.
