ColdFusion Fundamentals

ColdFusion behaves as an application server, and it functions as described in the previous section. ColdFusion runs on all major operating systems, but regardless of the operating system used, it functions the same way. The core services (or daemons) are always running, and requests are submitted to them for processing as they come in.

NOTE

I stated that ColdFusion behaves as an application, and not that it is an application server. The distinction is subtle, but is one worth noting. Earlier versions of ColdFusion were indeed application servers themselves, but not anymore. As of ColdFusion MX, ColdFusion is a J2EE application that is deployed on top of industry standard J2EE servers. ColdFusion thus behaves like a server (in that it responds to incoming requests and returns results) but is actually an application running on an underlying J2EE server.
