How to display the Helloworld using fusebox technology?

Step 1

First off, download the core files from the website of Fusebox. I am going to be working in the folder D:\project\TestDocument accessible via my browser as http://localhost/FB4.

Since this is a web application, we need the web server. I have used the web server named Internet Information services (ISS). In the IIS, create the virtual directory FB4 whose local Path is D:\Project\ TestDocument in the properties.

Step 2

Create a cfm file called as dsp_helloworld.cfm in that folder containing the following code.

Listing 11

Hello World
<h3>Hello World!!</h3>

Now we have the display file that will display the message, but we need to do a little more to get the application to work.

Step 3

Create another file called circuit.xml.cfm. This file uses the XML to define the fuseaction within a particular circuit in the application.

Listing 12

<circuit access="public">
<fuseaction name="helloworld">
<include template="dsp_helloworld.cfm" />

Step 4

In this step we need to edit the fusebox.xml file to asign an alias to the circuit. The top the fusebox.xml contains the code.

Listing 13

<circuit alias="main" path="" parent="" />

Since we are creating simple application we do not need to worry about the path and parent attributes and change the alias name to document.

Listing 14

<circuit alias="document" path="" parent="" />

Finally, we need to set the value of defaultFuseaction of fusebox.xml to document.helloworld.

Open the browser and run the application via http://localhost/FB4 or http://localhost/FB4/index.cfm?fuseaction=document.helloworld. If all goes well, you should see "Hello World!!"
