Understanding Coldfusion

ColdFusion comes in two parts: ColdFusion Studio and ColdFusion Server. You create your pages in ColdFusion Studio, and you use a ColdFusion server to process these pages.

ColdFusion is very different from HTML, though the languages share some characteristics. They're both tag-based languages, and both are used to display pages in a Web browser. But there the similarities end. HTML can display only static data—information that doesn't change. ColdFusion can be used to display dynamic information—results that change in response to some event or user interaction. For instance, dynamic content allows you to create pages that display information based on users' requests, run an online store, process orders, and interact with users, customizing information to meet their needs.
