Using Server-Side Validation

As mentioned earlier, server-side validation involves adding code to your application that performs form field validation after the form is submitted. In ColdFusion this usually is achieved with a series of <cfif> statements that check each field’s value and data types. If any validation steps fail, processing can be terminated with the <cfabort> function, or the user can be redirected to another page (maybe the form itself) using <cflocation>.
