Great new ColdFusion MX 6.1 case study posted at http://dynamic.macromedia.com/bin/MM/showcase/scripts/showcase_cs_cover.jsp?Showcase_OID=952342. Nissan Digital Asset Management System is an enterprise digital asset management system that enables authorized remote end-users to
access Nissan digital assets from anywhere in the world. The site has lots of data, 1.2 million records consisting of 5,000-6,000 assets and 50 GB of data to be exact. The site was created using ColdFusion MX and recently upgraded to ColdFusion MX 6.1 Enterprise. Among the story highlights: using ColdFusion MX 6.1 processing times decreased from 2000 ms to 400 ms as well as an overall performance increase of 60-75 percent. Awesome!

  1. I’ve just upgraded from my beloved version 5, to version 6.1, but I see the real world example. MX 6.1 is way slower than version 5. I do not use special exotic code, and the code is clean optimized.
    Benchmarks done by professionals available on the web, and not on the payroll of Macromedia also show version 5 is way faster than MX, or MX6.1.
    Every body already new, moving to a J2EE layer, couldn’t compete with C/C++ code.
    Macromedia does not have too, but I am extremely curious which magic code should bring such a performance.
