Macromedia ColdFusion (www.macromedia.com) was among the first and most successful products to insert its own markup language into HTML with a primary focus on incorporating data. Today, people still like ColdFusion for the data orientation focus.
Available for several different server platforms, CFML (Cold Fusion Markup Language) allows tight control when connecting to databases, formulates an SQL statement to fetch the data, and controls how the returned data is organized. Although CFML can be programmed in a simple text editor, we believe the Windows-only ColdFusion Studio is the best choice for a development environment. ColdFusion has come so far down the trail of sophistication that it is now a system with an application server at its heart.
