DZone recently caught up with Ben Forta, ColdFusion guru and renowned book author to discuss the state of the ColdFusion market, CF adoption trends, and the future of the platform. While ColdFusion plays a pivotal role in many heterogeneous environments as ‘middleware glue’, it is increasingly becoming the platform of choice for standalone Web application and RIA development. ColdFusion 9 introduces a new Eclipse-based IDE, improvements to the CFScript language, and adds object-relational mapping support via Hibernate. Ben discusses these and other topics.
Here is the link.
In my work environment we have ColdFusion 7 and I like to write my templates in cfscript, but since CF7 does not support some new scripting functions in CF8, I wrote a component to mimic those functions and allow me to stay focused on the scripting.
Well, it is not my original idea, I saw it from other blogs, but I added some value to it with some additional functions.
