What is ColdFusion?

Adobe ColdFusion is software for creating and serving web-based applications that interact with back-end databases, such as Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server. Web pages that interact with ColdFusion application servers have a .cfm file extension. For more, see Adobe ColdFusion Family.

At Indiana University, ColdFusion is available on the Consolidated Hosting Environment (CHE); see Does IU have a ColdFusion server?

Many Adobe software products are available free via IUware for IU students, faculty, and staff under the IU/Adobe License Agreement. For details, see About Adobe software at IU.
