What is ColdFusion?

ColdFusion is a dynamic web application server and a Rapid Application Development (RAD) toolkit that runs on Java.

Where Did It Come From?

Adobe ColdFusion is a commercial rapid web application development platform created by JJ Allaire in 1995.

ColdFusion was originally designed to make it easier to connect simple HTML pages to a database

What Makes ColdFusion Unique?

One of the distinguishing features of ColdFusion is its associated scripting language, ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML). CFML compares to the scripting components of ASP, JSP, and PHP in purpose and features, but its tag syntax more closely resembles HTML, while its script syntax resembles JavaScript. ColdFusion is often used synonymously with CFML, but there are additional CFML application servers besides ColdFusion, and ColdFusion supports programming languages other than CFML, such as server-side Actionscript and embedded scripts that can be written in a JavaScript-like language known as CFScript.

Originally a product of Allaire and released on July 2, 1995, ColdFusion was developed by brothers Joseph J. "JJ" and Jeremy Allaire. In 2001 Allaire was acquired by Macromedia, which in turn was acquired by Adobe Systems Inc in 2005.

ColdFusion is most often used for data-driven websites or intranets, but can also be used to generate remote services such as REST services, websockets, SOAP web services or Flash remoting. It is especially well-suited as the server-side technology to the client-side ajax.

Will ColdFusion Be Around For A While?

Adobe bought ColdFusion and it is now their premiere development application. Adboe announced the launch of the newest version of ColdFusion, Adobe ColdFusion (2016 release). ColdFusion has had had a profound impact of web application development over the last two decades when they celebrated twenty years of Adobe ColdFusion.
