    Object-based Component Architecture:
    The rapid development of ColdFusion combined with the code reuse and encapsulation benefits of an object oriented language

  • Build and consume SOAP web services

  • separate business logic from the presentation tier

  • provide data to Flash and Flex applications

  • Employ community-supported frameworks based on Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture

    2. Standard J2EE Environment

    ColdFusion IS Java
  • ColdFusion applications are developed in CFML (and likely take advantage of Java, XML, SOAP, and more).
  • At runtime ColdFusion applications are pure Java.
  • A J2EE server (internal or external)
  • … running a Java application (the ColdFusion engine)
  • … invoking Java code (CFML code compiled to Java bytecode).
  • CFML exists only at developer time, runtime is pure Java (and deployed like any other Java application) on a J2EE server like WebSphere or WebLogic
  • CFML source need not be present at runtime.
  • Applications may be packaged and deployed like any other Java applications (EAR or WAR files).

  • Asynchronous processing
  • Rich Forms
  • Document Generation
  • Convert Web Content to PDF or FlashPaper
  • Flash or XML forms
  • Grid, tree, tab, accordion controls
