Adobe Cold Fusion: 8 Reasons Why It Is Still Relevant

by Darryl K. Taft
Despite being one of the longest-standing application development platforms, Adobe ColdFusion continues to gain steam. More than 770,000 developers at more than 12,000 companies rely on ColdFusion to rapidly build and deploy Internet applications—from the Professional Golfers' Association, Under Armour, AT&T, the Federal Reserve Bank and even the National Security Agency. Check out this slide show to see examples of how companies and government agencies use ColdFusion for everything from managing a central portal where people in all 50 states work collectively to safeguard the national food supply, to running sophisticated online traveler applications that allow extreme backpackers to stay in touch with families at home, to analyzing customer behavior on e-commerce sites to anticipate impending customer requests. Adobe ColdFusion, a rapid application development and application server platform, includes an IDE and a full scripting language, and features enterprise integration along with support for Rich Internet Applications. This slide show offers eight projects that demonstrate that Adobe ColdFusion is still a highly relevant development platform.
