Chapter 23. Calling External Objects

Chapter 23. Calling External Objects

If you had to choose a single word to describe ColdFusion, it just might be connectivity. So far, we've talked about using ColdFusion to talk to databases, LDAP servers, FTP servers, HTTP servers, SMTP servers, POP servers, custom tags, and the local filesystem. Well, you'll be happy to know that the list doesn't stop there. ColdFusion can also communicate with a number of other technologies including command-line programs, COM/DCOM objects, CORBA objects, Java classes, Enterprise JavaBeans, and Java servlets. All this connectivity is handled via three tags, CFOBJECT, CFEXECUTE, and CFSERVLET. This chapter discusses how to use these tags to communicate with several types of external objects and programs to expand the functionality of ColdFusion to unlimited heights.
