Contacts.cfc

Let's use CommandBox to build it:

coldbox create orm-entity entityName=contacts primaryKey=contactID properties=firstName,lastName,email --open

Then spice it up with the validation constraints

/**
* A cool Contact entity
*/
component persistent="true" table="contacts"{
// Primary Key
property name="contactID" fieldtype="id" column="contactID" generator="native" setter="false";
// Properties
property name="firstName" ormtype="string";
property name="lastName" ormtype="string";
property name="email" ormtype="string";
// validation
this.constraints = {
firstName = {required=true},
lastName = {required=true},
email = {required=true, type="email"}
};
}
