ColdFusion 8 also uses Ajax-based components, enabling developers to design and deploy engaging applications by integrating complex environments into intuitive interfaces.
The software offers expanded support such as .NET integration, Microsoft Windows Vista and JBoss support, and integration with the latest version of enterprise databases, giving organizations enhanced efficiency, interoperability, and scalability.
