19.8. CFX Tags

As I mentioned in the beginning of the chapter, ColdFusion can be extended through another type of custom tag called a CFX tag. CFX tags differ from CFML custom tags in a number of ways:

  • They are created in Visual C++, Delphi, or Java.

  • They are compiled (.dll for Visual C++/Delphi, .class for Java).

  • They must be registered in the ColdFusion Administrator before they can be used.

  • They may or may not be cross-platform.

  • They can extend the capabilities of the ColdFusion Application Server in ways that CFML tags can't by performing tasks not native to ColdFusion.

  • They generally execute faster than CFML tags (because they are compiled).
