To create interactive and dynamic web applications rapidly ColdFusion Developers looks for Innovative frameworks. ColdFusion is regularly upgraded by Adobe so that Programmers can easily create large and complex web applications. ColdFusion not only provides built in support for HTML5, but also allows developers to create enterprise applications by using the Java Enterprise Edition (EE) platform. Their latest authentication and encryption techniques help developers in optimizing the security of their websites.
Features of ColdFusion Development that Effects Rapid Web Application Development:
Built-in Support for HTML5
A variety of web applications such as social networks, web-based games, enterprise dashboard, online podcasts and ecommerce portals are created through built–in support for HTML provided by ColdFusion. HTML5 WebSockets can be used to publish data to several clients which will save your extra efforts. To implement interactive client-side HTML5 charts they can use CFCHART tag which is very simple.
REST Web Service
ColdFusion Developers can publish the existing components as Representational State Transfer (REST) Web Services as ColdFusion offers built in support for JSON, XML serialization and de- serialization as well as HTTP methods. It creates interface for mobile application. Smooth and powerful bidirectional communication can be optimized with the use of WebSockets.
HTML to PDF Conversion
Developers can create high quality PDF files from HTML pages with an improved Adobe conversion engine. Electronic Signature will help to maintain the integrity and authenticity of PDF documents. To access the information, users will have to sign, certify and validate the files with the help of Electronic Signature.
While creating the mobile version of a website, the on–device debugging capability helps to identify and fix variety of bugs. Connect the mobile device to ColdFusion Builder remotely and you can identify the bugs by knowing it’s the actual usage on the mobile device. Further, to check the look and feel of a web application, they can use built-in Weinre server.
Programmers, with the help of ColdFusion Development can easily enhance the scalability of enterprise web applications through multiple server instances which can be created in a virtualized or clustered environment. From the existing JAVA EE application servers, the web application development framework can be deployed as a WAR or EAR. To send and receive unlimited emails, it has highly scalable email engine. To manage their files more efficiently, the enterprises can avail the Microsoft Office file interoperability provided by ColdFusion.
Protect Websites from XSS and CSRF
Cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site requests forgery (CSRF) can be prevented through ColdFusion. Application authentications can be built more stronger by using optimized log-in mechanisms. To enable default setting across the server, they can use secure profile option. Thus, the recent version of ColdFusion helps to make servers more secure.
ColdFusion 11 is the further version designed by Adobe as an all-in-one application server which will help the programmers to build and deploy web applications on a single platform. Some other innovative security features like default server lockdown, secure profile and options to sanitize user input are included in the recent version.
