Chapter 1. Introducing Dreamweaver > Application Development

Application Development

Because application development technologies frequently change, this is the area in Dreamweaver that you would expect most of the additions. In Dreamweaver 8, Macromedia did not disappoint, expanding on its already feature-rich application development framework by enhancing support for ColdFusion MX 7, adding code hinting for PHP 5, and most importantly, integrating robust and intuitive functionality for authoring XML data visually.

Visual Authoring with XML Data

One of the most exciting additions to Dreamweaver 8 is its support for visual authoring of XML pages and creating XSL transformations (XLST) quickly and intuitively. Beginning with the New Document dialog, shown in Figure 1.19, Macromedia added drag-and-drop support from the Bindings panel for integrating XML data into web pages, enhanced support for XML and XSLT in Code view, and improved rendering for XSLT and XPath.
