Creating ColdFusion web service pages with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX

Web services enable web pages to access distributed applications. By offering both access to information and application functionality as a service, web services can be delivered and paid for as streams of services that allow ubiquitous access from any platform. The web page that connects to the web service is commonly known as a "consumer," and the service itself is known as a "publisher." Macromedia Dreamweaver MX lets you easily create Macromedia ColdFusion pages that can access web services. Dreamweaver MX lets you select web services available on the Internet, generate a ColdFusion web service proxy, and drag and drop methods and data types into a page's code view.
