Installing the ColdFusion MX Server
(Page 1 of 5 )

The ColdFusion MX 6.1 software is an application server that supports the ColdFusion specific scripting platform. ColdFusion MX 6.1 Server is supported by the Windows 2003(IIS 6) server, the Solaris 9, and Linux 8+ from several vendors. CFMX is a compiler that compiles CFMX to Java Bytecode; it used to be that CFML was first converted to Java source, which was then compiled. The 6.1 version goes directly from CFML to Bytecode.

Probably the use of this application server with Java is the most popular. Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 can be used, as can any text editor, to develop Web pages. Both static and dynamic pages can be rapidly developed with the server side CF syntax embedded HTML pages; it is not too dissimilar to ASP and PHP. The application server connects to a wide range of databases, open source as well as proprietary ones. The database connection is surprisingly simple and fast. The application server's datasource panel lists all sources supporting advanced configuration features.
