ColdFusion Programming is the most rapid web application building platform of Adobe with powerful and expressive characteristics. It handles all the CFML ( ColdFusion Markup Language ) Pages and libs. Its Expressive property allows the user to perform difficult programming task rapidly and its powerful property allow you to integrate with its functionalities like an exchange of MS excess, Database access, create PDF & Spreadsheets, connect to many servers via POP, LDAP, FTP, and IMAP. It is also comparable to ASP.NET and PHP. The ColdFusion Markup Language CFML is a mixture of both HTML and XML tags. It runs on Linux, Windows, HP/UX, and Solaris.
ColdFusion is the RAD Platform (Rapid Application Development Language ) to create and deploy many high-level solutions that integrate Database, Server platform, and Browser. It uses Tags base ( HTML or XML tags ) and other server scripting languages for the web applications. ColdFusion doesn’t need any browser plug-ins as it runs entirely on its server. It is an up-to-date programming language that helps to improve all website applications.
ColdFusion uses CF tags with object-oriented functionalities. CF contains the main two elements - ColdFusion Files which we write with the help of (CFML ) ColdFusion Markup Language and ColdFusion Server.
In 1995, ColdFusion was developed by Allaire Brothers and later Macromedia purchased CF Platform. It was similar to the web languages that let us build a website and display data on web pages. In the early days, ColdFusion Programming was not advanced but it was the easiest, simple programming language. ColdFusion became the reason behind the development of ASP by Microsoft. ColdFusion became much familiar for HTML Programmer because of tag-based usage in ColdFusion Programming language.
Today, we need to develop the best performance-driven and scalable web applications. It depends mainly on the performance of its Programming Language. Nowadays, most of the programmers rely mostly on ColdFusion as it is popular Dynamic Programming Language with many functional advantages and easy coding tags.
According to a recent Statistics study, 90% of R Programmers students found a job less than 1 or 2 months after their graduation in Australia.
ColdFusion is an advanced platform and its demand is increasing with time because of its powerful, transferable and characteristics. Now certified ColdFusion developer is creating OOP Style application with other mature and robust frameworks like Machli.
