Used with one or more <cfcatch> tags, the cftry tag lets you catch and process exceptions in CFML pages.
Exceptions include events that disrupt the normal flow of instructions in a CFML page, such as failed database operations, missing include files, and developer-specified events.
This tag must have a body.
This tag is also supported within <cfscript>
<cftry><!--- body ---></cftry>
This tag does not use any attributes.
