Allaire ColdFusion

bullet Introduction
Allaire ColdFusion is a popular web applications development tool. ColdFusion uses a tag-based, server scripting language that is ideal for programming Web applications. Processed entirely on the server, the ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) cleanly integrates with HTML for user interface and XML for data exchange. Both open and extendible, CFML supports more than 70 server-side tags, 200 functions, and 800 third-party components making it the most productive language available for creating advanced Web applications. In addition, ColdFusion supports Java and C++, and fully integrates with object transaction middleware through COM, CORBA, or EJB.

NOTE: ColdFusion and Chili!Soft will not work on the same Virtual Private Servers. Be sure to have only one or the other installed on any one Virtual Private Servers.

ColdFusion is commonly used for the development of database-enabled web sites, and supports several databases including dBase/FoxPro, IBM DB2/6000, INFORMIX 7.x/9.x, Sybase 11, OpenIngres 1.x/2.x, Oracle 7/8, MS SQL, and MySQL. Though ColdFusion is capable of connecting to all these databases, MySQL is the only database, which can be run on your Virtual Private Servers.

NOTE: CFX Custom Tags are not supported on the Virtual Private Servers, unless they have been built elsewhere using Sun's C++ Compiler, version 5.0.

NOTE: Coldfusion is available on the VPS platform only. Due to licensing restrictions, ColdFusion cannot be installed on the MPS platform.
