    COLDFUSION is a very expensive program from Macromedia.

    http://www.macromedia.com/software/coldfusion/

    U need to install the program on the server, and a browser will execute your .cfm web pages.

    Answer...

    You'll need a special support for the browser to enable him to "understand" CFM. You can do this, by installing the Macromedia ColdFusion MX pack, or, uploading your application to an server the supports ColdFusion, try googling, to see if you find one, good luck.

    I don't think you need ANY special software to view .cfm web pages - they are treated as regular HTML pages.

    We are not really sure what u want to do with COLD FUSION, I am not sure if u really know what COLD FUSION is. It is a SERVER SIDE SOFTWARE that enables you to create web pages that are connected to a database and you can do other conditional processing with it.

    It's like PHP which this site uses.

    well,rod
    I want to create my own web pages.That's why i'm using the cold fusion.recently,i just heard about it and i'm not really know everything about it.i have search for the info about it.In the back there it contains the databases.Unlike html.This is why i love it?

    If u know more about cold fusion.Pls telll me more about it.Would yeah?


    "It is a SERVER SIDE SOFTWARE that enables you to create web pages that are connected to a database and you can do other conditional processing with it."


    Up there,it like the web pages that are already connected to the databases and just need to do some extra coditional processing with it. Am i rite,rod? is it what u meant?


    how about if i created my own web pages before i connected to my databases? will it allowed me? or the purposed of cold fusion is just to do the extra processing to the webpages that are connected to the databases. WIsh to know more...
    so curious............... thax,dude!

    Cold Fusion is a nice program IF...

    1) you are running you're own server
    2) have $1,200 - $4,000 to spend
    3) if u like HTML/XML as that is what the syntax resembles
    4) if u know, HTML, XML, Java, Javascript, SQL.

    Cold Fusion is not really an HTML EDITOR(wysiwyg) as far as I know, you would have to shell out an additional $2,000 to get the STUDIO version. OR you can get Dreamweaver.
    --here's a tutotial and explanation about Cold Fusion--

    Since I don't know you're situation - what u want to do, what kinda server setup you have - I cannot tell u whether u SHOULD get Cold Fusion.

    Hmm, about the 4).
    it's not true, you dont need to know Java or even SQL to learn and work with CFM. CFM treats DB in such easy way, even easier then PHP! Whats correct to say is to learn CFM you need a very strong DOM base.

    I disagree; I'm with onestiff on this one, in order to fully utilize CFM you should know HTML, XML, Java, Javascript, and SQL.

    Java too?

    Are you crazy? have you ever looked at cfm?
    you'll never find there OOP, not even close
    so why need Java? (for the syntax? not even close) JS is ok, just like I said (DOM).

    Hmm, you know what's DOM?


    I don't see why you need to know java to learn cfm.

    The new MX version is tied to JSP (java server pages) and allows you to do alot more stuff - but you gotta know java.

    Ohh..

    JSP != ColdFusion, not even close.
    The real alaire cfm, isn't based on jsp, not in java and so on.

    It's syntax is based in DOM, that's it.
