Wildlife Project 5: Setting up your ColdFusion MX application server

Whether you are developing your project single-handedly or collaborating with a team of people, you need to set up a development environment before you begin using Macromedia Studio MX to build your web pages. At the most basic level, your development environment will consist of a web server, an application server, and a Macromedia Dreamweaver MX site.

This tutorial describes how to configure your system to build web applications in Dreamweaver MX. This tutorial is the fifth in a series of Macromedia Studio MX tutorials that teach you how to plan, design, create, and deploy a fully-functional website. To see all of the tutorials in the series, visit the Macromedia Studio MX page on the Macromedia Dreamweaver Support Center. A complete list of tutorials is also available at the Macromedia Designer and Developer Center.

This tutorial series uses a fictional organization, The Wildlife Project, to demonstrate website asset development. If you haven't already done so, be sure to read the Project overview in the first tutorial, Planning your Macromedia Studio MX website, and view the completed sample site.
