ColdFusion 9 Essential Training is a detailed overview of ColdFusion, demonstrating each of the components and tools necessary to create dynamic web sites and web applications. Author and web developer David Gassner starts this course at the very beginning: how to set up a ColdFusion application server in both the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Using the new ColdFusion Builder, David explains the data types and code necessary to build and deploy dynamic web pages. Throughout the course, he shows how to build web pages and forms and populate these containers with dynamic data using ColdFusion ORM (Object Relational Mapping), a new feature of ColdFusion 9.
