ColdFusion as a Database-to-Web Gateway

In Net jargon, ColdFusion is often called a database-to-Web gateway. Such gateways allow developers to "link" a database to a Web site and display one, some, or all of the database records as standard HTML pages, as described in Day 1, "Introducing ColdFusion," and Day 2, "Anatomy of a ColdFusion Application."

ColdFusion is by no means the only application of this kind. Several programs perform similar functions, but few can match the power and simplicity of ColdFusion. In addition, ColdFusion goes beyond simple database tasks by adding tools that allow developers to create complete Web-based applications.
