The Online ColdFusion Meetup Message Board › Why should ColdFusion instead of others.

Why should ColdFusion instead of others.

A former member
Post #: 2
We will go for ColdFusion instead of other technologies because it has so many advantages as compared to other technologies.

Advantage of ColdFusion:

Simplified Installation and Migration:- Installation of ColdFusion is very simple and requires few basic steps to follow. Once ColdFusion has been installed, open the ColdFusion Administrator at http://{websiteroot}/...­ (where {websiteroot} is the URL of our website).

All Operating System (OS) Support: - ColdFusion runs on all the platforms,
Upon compilation ColdFusion code becomes java class files which when executes and provides us the result.

All Database support: - Simplified and easy access to almost supports to each database.

Faster Development & Easy to Learn: - For any developers it’s easy to learn and explore its dynamic features.

We can actually implement it in any framework for e.g. wither cold box or fuse box which provides MVC architecture where we can reuse its features.

Here we can implement our code with segregating business logic with view and controller, which is highly useful if we want to extend it further. The object oriented programming in ColdFusion is a plus which take it to the category of technology like Java.

Access to all the J2EE libraries: As given in above diagram, in ColdFusion we have..

ColdFusion is implemented on the J2EE. J2EE is a standard; it is not a programming language. J2EE is an implementation of the Java programming language, but includes a number of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for connecting to databases, queuing messages, connecting to registries and naming and directory services.
All of these APIs are used by ColdFusion for many of its base services and other runtime services.
Integration with Other adobe Products (Flex, Flash, PDF...)

Let’s compare ColdFusion with other technologies:-

Extra features we have in ColdFusion are:-

Vs. PHP:

(i) Ajax features,

(ii) Integration with adobe products,

(iii) community support, J2EE.

Vs. Java:

(i) Easy to learn,

(ii) Code development & maintenance cost.


(i) All OS,

(ii) Most of web server Support.
