Free Adobe Coldfusion 8 beta launched

Adobe offers public beta of new web tool

Adobe has released a public beta version of the ColdFusion 8 web development software. ColdFusion 8 is designed for developers building dynamic websites and internet applications, and the public beta is a feature-complete preview, according to the company.

Using the company's Flex technology and Ajax-based components, Adobe says that ColdFusion 8 enables developers to design and deploy rich, engaging applications by integrating complex environments into intuitive interfaces. The new ColdFusion 8 development environment also features Eclipse-based wizards and debugging, letting developers build applications and identify and fix problems easier than in previous versions. The ColdFusion 8 Server Monitor lets developers swiftly identify bottlenecks and tune the server for better performance.

ColdFusion 8 integrates with a broad range of platforms and systems. This expanded support includes integration with .NET assemblies, support for Windows Vista and new J2EE servers including JBoss. Adobe says that ColdFusion 8 also delivers significant performance gains over ColdFusion MX 7 and earlier versions of the product. Additionally, ColdFusion 8 applications can interact with PDF documents and forms for a printable, portable way to capture information.
