Description goes here

This is your invitation to be part of real-world ColdFusion development teams as they tackle real-world problems.

Developers of all levels have been trumped at one time or another by the amount of time it takes to design, build, and implement a quality custom application. This holds true even in a ColdFusion environment, renowned for its ease of use and rapid application development. But developers don’t have to forge ahead on their own any longer. This book, part of a new series of ColdFusion books from Macromedia Press, puts readers squarely in the middle of a crack team of experts as they confront real-world development problems and design real-world solutions. The end result includes complete, configurable, high-quality applications that developers can use in their own solutions.

This title focuses on helping readers quickly move to the next level of Macromedia Flash MX application development: using ColdFusion to deliver high-powered dynamic Flash applications. Written for ColdFusion developers who want to know more about Flash and Flash developers who want to add more power to their applications, the book presents a thorough and complete study of how to integrate Flash MX and ColdFusion MX, using Flash as the client and interface to ColdFusion on the server.

The book is divided into four sections, each representing a dynamic Flash application — a jukebox, expense reporting, mail client, and chat program. All the documentation for the development process for each application is included, with an emphasis on getting results quickly.
