Wildlife Project 14: Building a database search feature

This tutorial shows you how to build a simple Macromedia ColdFusion MX search application with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX. This tutorial is the fourteenth 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 section in the first tutorial, Planning your Macromedia Studio MX website, and view the completed sample site.

Note: ASP, ASP.NET, JSP, and PHP developers may still find this ColdFusion tutorial useful. For more information about configuring Dreamweaver to use any of these other server technologies, see Dreamweaver Help (Help > Using Dreamweaver > Preparing to Build Dynamic Sites).
