Lee Asher (Expert Author) has written a story for WebProNews entitled ColdFusion: Quicker Scripting, At A Price. He seems to have gotten lots of the story right, although not entirely so. He really does not seem to have gotten the ColdFusion/Java relationship, however.
And then he makes the statement ColdFusion on the web can sometimes be unreliable and slow, mainly because it runs on a Java framework.
And … well … I just don’t even know how to respond to that one!
