Storm stands for struct ORM, struct referring to the Coldfusion struct data type. Storm was written when ColdFusion 9's built in ORM capabilities were still very slow, and Transfer ORM was proving to be to configuration heavy. Storm was focused on what Coldfusion does best, being simple and very dynamic. Storm is built with a philosophy of only being as complicated as the developer wishes. It can do basic crud simply by instantiating the storm object, and be as complex as defining object hierarchies for your database tables. Learn how you can use this ORM for your whole project, or to augment an existing legacy project to make your database interactions simpler.
