If you already use ColdFusion to develop your applications, there are lots of reasons to upgrade cost-effectively to the latest version - here are just a few.
Experience out-of-the-box performance gains
Because Adobe ColdFusion 8 is the fastest version of the software ever, you can experience out-of-the-box gains in performance for every application—without any changes to the underlying code.
Tune the server for faster performance
See exactly what is happening in every application, identify and fix bottlenecks before deployment, and tune the server for maximum performance using the new ColdFusion 8 Server Monitor.
Enhance end-user experiences and productivity
Create personalized, multimedia-rich applications in Adobe Flex™ software or Ajax; let users interact with PDF forms; deliver more compelling, structured reports; and enable users to view high-quality, on-demand presentations that include animation, audio, and video.
Smoothly integrate Internet applications with virtually any enterprise environment
Make ColdFusion 8 applications the hub of all enterprise resources thanks to support for Java and .NET objects. Leverage integration with Microsoft Exchange Server to enable ColdFusion 8 applications to access calendars, tasks, and contacts.
Create powerful Ajax applications quickly and simply
Generate a complete Ajax data management application without writing a single line of code, and leverage powerful Ajax user interface controls, such as rich text editors, data grids, tab navigators, and more.
Easily debug application code
Set breakpoints, watch variables, and step through code, making it easier to debug code that does not run in a browser, such as ColdFusion components (CFCs), web services, and remote calls to Flex applications.
Deploy applications natively on leading server platforms
Let ColdFusion 8 applications run natively on leading J2EE application servers, including IBM® WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, and JBoss.
Implement advanced ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) features
