Why Use ColdFusion?

The growth of the Web is primarily because of the large amount of Web content and its ease of use. The flipside of this tremendous growth is that a Web site needs to attract users to it. Undoubtedly, a Web site needs to provide good content, but it also needs to do so in a user-friendly and attractive manner. Such a Web site needs to have database connectivity, dynamic data-driven Web pages, user-customized pages, and sophisticated data collection and processing.

ColdFusion was the first Web application server available for Windows NT-based Web servers. Until then, developing dynamic sites was a difficult process. A good working knowledge of UNIX was a prerequisite, and experience with traditional development or scripting languages was necessary. Only experienced programmers could develop customized Web-based applications. But now, ColdFusion enables you to create Web sites that have extensive dynamic features, and it doesn’t have a very steep learning curve.
