Allaire ColdFusion Server 4.5 Enterprise Edition is a high-performance, open Web application server for delivering large-scale e-business applications. By providing a run-time environment, connectivity to server technologies, state management, security, load balancing, failover, and an array of other services, ColdFusion Server makes developing and delivering scalable applications straightforward and fast.
ColdFusion uses a tag-based server-scripting language--ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML)--that's ideal for programming Web applications. Processed entirely on the server, CFML tags cleanly integrate with HTML for user interface and XML for data exchange. Both open and extendible, CFML supports more than 70 server-side tags, 200 functions, and 800 third-party components, making it the most productive environment available for creating advanced Web applications.
ColdFusion Server is the deployment foundation of the ColdFusion Web application server. The Enterprise Edition contains technology specifically suited to large-volume, transaction-intensive Web applications. It's designed to work with the visual tools in ColdFusion Studio 4.0 (licensed separately), as well as a wide range of other popular Web development tools, including Macromedia Dreamweaver and NetObjects Fusion.
