Publisher: Que – December 23, 1998
This title is out of date, and has been replaced by Adobe ColdFusion 9 Web Application Construction Kit, Volume 1: Getting Started.
The first two editions of this book have become the standard tutorials and definitive references for ColdFusion application development!
Also included is an introduction to ODBC, SQL, and relational database design.
The accompanying CD contains evaluation versions of ColdFusion 4 Enterprise Edition and ColdFusion Studio 4, and all the code listings from the book. As a special bonus, the CD also contains over 30 third-party add-on tags and utilities that you may use within your ColdFusion applications.
I hope you find this new edition to be a valuable ColdFusion resource. And if you are an experienced ColdFusion developer, be sure to check out my other ColdFusion book, Advanced ColdFusion 4 Development, ISBN 0789718103.
On behalf of myself, the contributing authors, and the publisher, good luck with ColdFusion, and happy coding!
