ColdFusion is a platform for web and mobile applications

The application server Adobe ColdFusion is a central platform for quickly creating and launching web and mobile applications. ColdFusion is a middleware for web-based scripting languages and database applications. ColdFusion was developed in 1995. Nowadays, the product belongs to Adobe Systems after various acquisitions.

ColdFusion consists of three parts: the ColdFusion Application Server (the first application server in the world), ColdFusion Markup Language – abbreviated CFML, which is a scripting language that makes it possible to program server-side applications as well as the appropriate development environments (such as Eclipse, Adobe ColdFusion Builder or Adobe Dreamweaver). ColdFusion is in direct competition with similar server side systems such as ASP.NET, JSP/Servlet, Ruby on Rails (RoR), ZOPE (Python), Perl and PHP.

ColdFusion offers users many advantages

Using ColdFusion has many advantages: whatever web applications you are planning to develop, ColdFusion is a very efficient form of realisation. Users save time in implementation with ColdFusion, and therefore save on costs for the entire project. ColdFusion makes projects faster, more productive and more efficient. ColdFusion is platform independent and is suitable for use with Windows, Solaris, Unix, Linux, Mac OS and more. The database connection is NoSql and SQL (MS SQL, DB2, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MS Access, etc.), also through ORM. ColdFusion is a standardised open technology, is scalable and includes built-in libraries that make it possible to create and process PDFs, as well as photo editing.

ColdFusion supports open industry standards and can be easily integrated into existing infrastructures. You can find more information on ColdFusion on Wikipedia:
