Adobe Releases ColdFusion 8

Posted by jeffhobbs on July 30, 2007

Adobe announced the release of ColdFusion 8. For those that use ColdFusion, this release is being touted as the the most feature-rich release of ColdFusion to date. I bring it up on my blog because Adobe has introduced an integration with .NET. From the Adobe web site:

In previous versions of ColdFusion, there was no native way to integrate those assets into a ColdFusion application. You could use web services to integrate ColdFusion and .NET, but that technique often suffered from poor performance or compatibility problems. ColdFusion 8 software solves this problem by introducing native .NET integration that lets you access Microsoft .NET assembly classes as CFML objects. With ColdFusion 8, now you can leverage .NET objects as easily as Java assets.

What does this mean? I’m not totally sure yet…. However my hope is that this means I can start developing GeoMedia WebMap applications inside of ColdFusion. If so, this would be pretty powerful as I really believe there is no simpler web development language to learn than ColdFusion.

Is anybody else using ColdFusion out there? If so, what are your thoughts? I’d be very interested to see what other people have to say on this topic.
