2005 WebProNews: ColdFusion Is Quicker, Too Bad About Underlying Java
Lee Asher (Expert Author) has written a story for WebProNews entitled ColdFusion: Quicker Scripting, At A Price. He seems to have gotten lots of the story right, although not entirely so. He really does not seem to have gotten the ColdFusion/Java relationship, however.
And then he makes the statement ColdFusion on the web can sometimes be unreliable and slow, mainly because it runs on a Java framework.
And ... well ... I just don't even know how to respond to that one!
