Cold Fusion can be used to create a wide variety
of applications that integrate relational
databases with the Web on Intranets and the
Internet. Applications range from dynamic Web
sites to enterprise-wide GroupWare.
Fusion enables dynamic, data-driven Web sites
that use pages which are generated on the fly
from information stored in databases and
provided by users. Page content can be instantly
customized based on user requests. Dynamic sites
allow users to enter and retrieve information
and offer unparalleled ease of maintenance and
More complicated applications include online
customer feedback, order entry, event
registration, bulletin-board style conferencing,
technical support, interactive training, and a
wide variety of information publishing
applications. Advanced applications include
internal client/server systems and Web-based
GroupWare. These applications can be used on the
Internet or as part of enterprise-wide networks
Developing applications with Cold Fusion does
not require coding in a traditional programming
language like Perl, C/C++, Visual Basic, Java,
or Delphi. Instead, developers build
applications by combining standard HTML with
high-level database commands stored in
templates. This method of Web Application
Development is simpler, faster and more flexible
than first generation, code-intensive
techniques. With Cold Fusion, developers can
leverage the power of the Web and relational
databases to create dynamic Web sites and
full-scale Web applications.
- Insert and update records in database
tables with HTML forms.
- Submit database queries that can then be
used to dynamically generate Web pages. For
example, use database query results to create
menus, populate select boxes and produce
- Intermix the results of queries with HTML
tags and text for complete control over how
data is displayed and formatted.
- Present the results of queries in
attractively formatted tables.
Send e-mail messages (SMTP) that use address
and message content from database queries.
- Track users and customize their view of
Web pages by using information about their
browser, location, or other preferences.
Advanced Data Input
and Reporting Features
- Validate form field entries as integer,
floating point, date, or numeric range.
- Require entry into form fields.
- Access CGI variables to track records with
date/time, client IP address, browser type,
e-mail address, and other information.
- Control output formatting for dates,
times, numbers, and currency values.
- Replace CR/LF sequences automatically with
<P> tags to correctly format output from memo
- Make conditional statements (if...else
branching) to dynamically customize output
returned to users and decisions about queries
submitted to the database.
- Include templates within other templates
to reuse complex code, formats or functions.
(Similar to the include functionality found in
- Embed SQL statements in templates to
specify queries. SQL statements may be
dynamically customized using data from form
submissions, URL query strings, and CGI
environment variables, as well as the results
returned from other queries.
- Place variables within SQL statements to
specify queries and choose databases. Dynamic
SQL allows developers to choose what SQL
statements are sent within any given SQL
- Execute multiple SQL queries and send SQL
queries to multiple databases for each client
- Call stored procedures (with parameters)
in databases that support them (e.g. SQL
- Deliver data-driven Java applets and
Administer (local and remote) options and
preferences with an easy to use GUI.
- Declare variables within templates and
create cookies (variables that are stored in
- Generate comprehensive error reporting,
debugging data and logging information to
enable rapid and easy application development.
Set content type for documents to support
database-driven VRML and other standards.
- Draw on comprehensive on-line support
available directly on the Web. This includes
software, technical articles, a user
conference, and a searchable knowledge base.
Cold Fusion uses 32-bit ODBC drivers to
communicate with a wide variety of relational
database systems. Cold Fusion is engineered to
ensure maximum database inter-operability and
should work correctly with all available 32-bit
ODBC drivers. (See notes below on compatibility
testing and requirements.)
Cold Fusion has been tested for compatibility
with the Microsoft ODBC Desktop Drivers, which
are bundled with the product. The set of drivers
includes support for the following databases:
You may use Microsoft® Access, Excel etc. You
can not use FoxPro. Depending on what type of
account you have, you may also use SQL Server.
Except for SQL databases, when you create a
database you will need to alert technical
support so we can make sure the permissions are
