Overview

ColdFusion Web Development with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 explores the exciting web development partnership between ColdFusion—a fantastically powerful but easy-to-learn server-side scripting language—and Dreamweaver, Macromedia's world-class visual web authoring tool. With Dreamweaver, you can set up your ColdFusion website, connect it to your database, put together all the code for the pages, and style themall with surprisingly little effort.

The book is full of practical examples. It begins by teaching the basics of the ColdFusion language and showing you how to use ColdFusion to perform tasks such as connecting to databases, decision making, reading XML, querying, and error handling. Further on, it delves into more advanced topics, such as ColdFusion extensions, custom functions, and Flash remoting (using Dreamweaver MX as the IDE). The book is supplemented by an extensive case study that shows you how to put together everything you've learned to build a fully operational, dynamic, real-world website. It also explores common web applications like blogs, review pages, and user registration/login forms.
