Dreamweaver MX is an award-winning HTML visual editor that enables you to create attractive web sites while “drawing” a web site that creates clean HTML code. Dreamweaver MX also enables you to add dynamic functionality to a web site, thus creating a web application, using any one of a number of application server functionality – ColdFusion included.

ColdFusion MX enables you to easily build Rich Internet Applications that integrate with databases, XML, web services, Macromedia Flash, and more. Available in two product lines, Macromedia ColdFusion MX empowers developers with a productive scripting environment and integrated search and charting capabilities.

With the release of Dreamweaver MX, the functionality for creating web sites and the functionality for developing web applications (from the previous Dreamweaver Ultradev product) have been combined. Also with the merger of Allaire Corporation and Macromedia, Inc., the support for the ColdFusion Markup Language has been significantly enhanced.

In this book, you will learn how to use the features of Dreamweaver MX that enable you to generate CFML code to create ColdFusion applications. These powerful code-generation features can enable you to quickly create ColdFusion pages that connect to database tables to display and manipulate database data on the web.
