Instructions:
  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Replaces special characters in a string with their HTML-escaped equivalents






2. Available only to the component that declares the method - components that extend the component - or any other components in the package






3. Determines whether a string is well-formed XML text.






4. Creates an XML document object.






5. Replaces special characters in a string with their HTML-escaped equivalents and inserts <pre> and</pre> tags at the beginning and end of the string






6. Specifies whether constructor code in the component can generate HTML output; does not affect output in the body of cffunction tags in the component.






7. Attribute of the <CFINVOKE> that allows you to pass parameters to web services. Name of a structure; associative array of arguments to pass to the method.






8. Determines the type of an XML document object node. Returns a string identifying the XML node type






9. Serializes and deserializes CFML data structures to the XML-based WDDX format. The WDDX is an XML vocabulary for describing complex data structures in a standard - generic way. Implementing it lets you use the HTTP protocol to such information among






10. Creates a date/time object that defines a time period. You can add or subtract it from other date/time objects and use it with the cached within attribute of <CFQUERY>.






11. Used to incrementally output a CFML page request to the web browser before a CFML page is completely processed






12. Runs when an uncaught exception occurs in the application. Use this method to handle errors in an application-specific manner. This method overrides any error handlers that you set in the ColdFusion Administrator or in cferror tags. It does not overr






13. Available to a locally executing page or component method






14. Sets permissions on directories. It applies only to UNIX/LINUX OSes and is used when the ACTION attribute is set to CREATE.






15. Invokes a component method from within a ColdFusion page or component - or invokes a web service.






16. Creates a ColdFusion XML document object that contains the markup in the tag body.






17. Returns the filename - path - parent directory - type - size - when the file was most recently modified - whether the file has read permission - write permission - and if it is hidden?






18. Uses a Document Type Definition (DTD) or XML Schema to validate an XML text document or an XML document object.






19. Any encountered error - including undeclared ones. Cannot include CFML tags - but you can display values of the error variables by enclosing them in number signs (#) - as in #error.MailTo#.






20. Gets the position of a child element within an XML document object






21. Creates an XML document object element. Returns an XML document object element. The other choices are not valid ColdFusion functions.






22. Determines whether the function parameter is an XML Document Object Model (DOM) attribute node. Returns true - if the function argument is an XML attribute node - otherwise returns false.






23. Returns result values from a component method.






24. Applies an XSLT to an XML document object that is represented as a string variable. An XSLT converts an XML document to another format or representation by applying an XSL stylesheet to it. Returns a string; an XML document after the XSLT is applied.






25. Invokes a custom tag for use in ColdFusion application pages. This tag processes custom tag name conflicts






26. Name of parent component from which to inherit methods and properties






27. Determines whether a CFC is being called as a web service. Returns true if CFC is being called as a web service - otherwise false is returned.






28. Use this method for any clean-up activities that your application requires when it shuts down - such as saving data in memory to a database - or to log the application end to a file. You cannot use this method to display data on a user page - because






29. Runs at the beginning of the request. It is useful for user authorization (login handling) - and for request-specific variable initialization - such as gathering performance statistics.






30. Available only to the component that declares the method and any components that extend the component in which it is defined






31. Defines a function that you can call in CFML. Required to defined ColdFusion component methods.






32. Will stop execution of the entire page and not return control back to the calling page.






33. Uses an XPath language expression to search an XML document that is represented as a string variable. Returns an array of XML object nodes that match the search criteria.






34. Escapes special XML characters in a string - so that the string is safe to use with XML.






35. An exception of the type specified by the exception attribute. Uses the full range of CFML tags. Error variables must be in cfoutput tags.






36. Available to a locally or remotely executing page or component method - or a remote client through a URL - Flash - or a web service. To publish the function as a web service - this option is required.






37. Errors recognized by server-side type validation. Cannot include CFML tags - but you can display values of the error variables by enclosing them in number signs (#) - as in #Error.InvalidFields#.






38. Executes a ColdFusion developer-specified process on a server computer.






39. Creates a date/time object that defines a time period. You can add or subtract it from other date/time objects and use it with the cachedwithin attribute of <CFQUERY>.






40. Creates a ColdFusion object - of a specified type






41. Determines the value associated with a key in a structure. Returns the value associated with a key in a structure; if structure does not exist - throws an exception.






42. Converts a value to a string. ColdFusion has the ability to convert an XML document object to a string by using this function.






43. Invokes a custom tag for use in ColdFusion application pages. Used to avoid custom tag name conflicts






44. Determines whether a function parameter is an XML document object element. Returns true - if the function argument is an XML document object element; False - otherwise.






45. Displays and logs debugging data about the state of an application at the time the tag executes. Tracks runtime logic flow - variable values - and execution time. Displays output at the end of the request or in the debugging section at the end of the






46. Verifies the data type of a query parameter and - for DBMSs that support bind variables - enables ColdFusion to use bind variables in the SQL statement. Bind variable usage enhances performance when executing a <CFQUERY> statement multiple times. Thi






47. Determines whether a function parameter is an Extended Markup language (XML) document object. Returns true - if the function argument is an XML document object; False - otherwise.






48. Stores a copy of a page on the server and/or client computer - to improve page rendering performance. To do this - the tag creates temporary files that contain the static HTML returned from a ColdFusion page. Use this tag if it is not necessary to ge






49. This tag aborts processing of the currently executing CFML custom tag - exits the page within the currently executing CFML custom tag - or re-executes a section of code within the currently executing CFML custom tag






50. Determines whether a directory exists. Returns Yes - if the specified directory exists; No - otherwise.
