    This is industrial-strength ColdFusion.

    You already know your way around CFML, you've got applications in production. Now you want to make them scale. Make them more secure. Use XML in your ColdFusion applications. Or, perhaps, internationalize them for global markets. Advanced Macromedia ColdFusion 5 Application Development shows you how to do all that, and more. ColdFusion guru Ben Forta and his colleagues take you right to the edge of what can be done with ColdFusion 5.

    Start with scalability. The authors review ColdFusion's built-in ClusterCATS software load balancing and hardware alternatives, and show how clustering forces you to rethink session management. The book's extensive security coverage includes sophisticated rules- and policy-based access control. The expert-level application development coverage ranges from CFSCRIPT-ing to intelligent agents, LDAP integration to XML support using WDDX, ColdFusion's handy solution for moving complex chunks of data around.

    You'll discover how to do more with custom tags and user-defined functions; how to extend ColdFusion with COM, CORBA, and Java; even how to customize, extend, and script the ColdFusion Studio development environment. If you're ready to take ColdFusion further, you're ready for Advanced Macromedia ColdFusion 5 Application Development. (Bill Camarda)
