    Cold Fusion

    okay you Macromedia fans (and you know who you are) - a simple question. Is cold fusion a development environment when working with a db driven website or is it the db itself?

    How I long for a product website that is NOT written in marketing bafflegab!

    Re: Cold Fusion

    The answer to your question: Yes.

    I haven't been around the Macromedia world for many months, but I seem to remember that ColdFusion can act as a database as well as providing a robust application server. IMHO, the next version of .NET (2.0) includes some very Cold Fusion-esque features (i.e. the DataSource tag, etc).

    Cold Fusion is a great platform, but I see no benefit in using it if you already know how to use a server-side application language (ASP, ASP.NET, php, etc.).
