Introducing ColdFusion

UltraDev supports one of the latest server technologies available in the field of Web application development—ColdFusion. ColdFusion, a product of Allaire Corporation, is a Web application server that enables you to build dynamic Web sites. Although a product of Allaire Corporation, ColdFusion is now owned by Macromedia. In ColdFusion, Web applications are created using ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML). Similar to HTML, CFML is also a tag-based scripting language. The pages created using CFML are similar to HTML pages, except that CFML pages contain server-side scripts that dynamically control data integration and presentation.

Unlike static Web sites, the primary focus of dynamic Web sites is on programmatic design and logic required to maintain online transactions. CFML enables you to include this logic with the help of CFML tags. Like other programming languages, CFML enables you to work with variables and program flow controls. It also enables you to interact with a database by using SQL statements. A simple feature, which requires numerous lines of complex coding in ASP or JSP, can be easily implemented using a single CFML tag. You can code CFML pages in Notepad or any other HTML editor and they should have a .cfm extension.
