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>

This tag does not use any attributes.
