UK based Software Editorial magazine has published a detailed review on ColdFusion 8, and concludes "Companies choose ColdFusion to create complex and robust mission-critical applications for internal and external access. While there are a number of ways to integrate web content with relational data, it is a simple task with ColdFusion, and the support for modern technology (Ajax, .NET and Java) is a valid reason to consider using this product." The review wraps by saying the product has "So many positives" and as for negatives, "None I could see. While the price seems steep, even small companies shouldn't have an issue with the price when considering the tools and functionality that the product offers." I couldn't have said it better myself!
