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.
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 Server.
