Much of this book will be a discussion of technologies and ideas, with examples to demonstrate specific techniques. The book will also contain case studies to illustrate real-world examples of specific topics.

CF4 is a massive upgrade, and it adds lots of new features, all of which are advanced. Basic CF does not change much, but things such as the support for server clusters, security frameworks, etc., are complicated subjects, and will be discussed in detail in this book. This book will address these issues and technologies, including: Using clustering and failover technologies to ensure server uptime; Server monitor and benchmarking; Creating secure applications, and integrating with existing security systems; Extending Cold Fusion using COM/DCOM, CORBA, JavaBeans, and the Cold Fusion C and Delphi API's; Customizing and modifying the client environment; ISP Cold Fusion hosting issues; and Working with XML.

Library Journal Review

ColdFusion is a very powerful application development environment for database-driven web sites. It is an excellent tool for developing web sites that need to grow. Forta discusses issues of scalability, security, extensibility, scripting, agent design, and distributed databases. This book is written by developers for developers and is not a beginners' introduction to ColdFusion. The CD contains an evaluation copy of ColdFusion for NT and Sun Solaris along with all code in the book as well as other third-party web utilities. For large academic and public libraries.
