What’s new in Adobe ColdFusion Standard (2023 Release)?
Adobe ColdFusion Standard (2023 Release) offers you a platform to rapidly build, test and deploy web applications for moderate traffic on a single server. Boost productivity with full scripting support and other exciting language features. Convert HTMLs to high-quality PDF files and easily create dynamic HTML5 charts. Bulletproof your applications with the most secure development platform that exists today.
Power up your efficiency.
Develop and launch your applications
with only a few lines of code.
Create dependable applications.
Protect your applications with the
web development platform that prioritizes security.
Extend your reach with ease.
Simplify your cloud development and
migration between GCP, AWS, or Azure with zero code rewrites.
Get up and running in minutes with an all-new installer that lets you automate repeatable installations of only the services you need. You have absolute control over what you install at all times.
Quickly deploy and scale applications in any environment, and ensure your ColdFusion code runs seamlessly in all of them. Standardize environments for continuous integration and delivery of your applications.
Boost the performance of your principal application by offloading resource-intensive code segments to a secondary thread. Simply use the RUNASYNC function to execute code without the overhead of managing multiple threads. Once the result is ready to be consumed, you’ll receive a notification.
Improved object-orientated support
Increase code reuse, improve modularity, enhance productivity, and implement object-orientated design patterns using final variables, methods and components, abstract components, default functions, and interface and co-variant return types.
Dynamic and interactive HTML5 charting
Implement a large repository of HTML5 charts using the built-in CFCHART tag. Easily create dynamic, data-heavy charts with a versatile server-side charting engine. Show data in a wide range of interactive formats with features such as zoom-in to help consumers get a granular view of information.
Enjoy the convenience of having one set of credentials across multiple applications. With SAML, all users have a single point of authentication, which gives the enterprise a birds-eye view of user-level access into the ecosystem at all times.
Implement lockdown of your production server with a single click. All steps in the lockdown guide will be systematically followed, ensuring that security measures are fail-safe and in compliance. Post-lockdown, the system will continue to be monitored for potential breaches.
Leverage NTLM authentication support on CFSHAREPOINT, CFOBJECT, and CFINVOKE to provide authentication, integrity, and confidentiality to users. Take advantage of Common Access Card (CAC) authentication to access ColdFusion administrator and Performance Monitoring Toolkit.
Security code analyzer
Use the security code analyzer to scan the existing application code to automatically detect vulnerabilities and potential security breaches. Identify the exact vulnerable code, type of vulnerability and severity level, and mitigate the vulnerability with the suggestion provided.
HTML to PDF conversion
Use the powerful conversion engine from Adobe to generate superior-quality PDF files from HTML pages. The engine parses the CSS and applies its settings to ensure that the content in the PDF appears and functions as it does in the web browser, retaining formatting, layout, and hyperlinks.
Cloud storage services
Enjoy raw storage for fast data access, with AWS S3 and Azure Blob. You can now access multi-cloud services with the same syntax and talk to different databases with a single line of code. Grow as you go with storage space that’s expandable, elastic, and cheaper than ever.
Optimize the scale-up architecture offered by AWS DynamoDB and MongoDB to handle large volumes of data with the built-in productive interface to NoSQL databases. Store unstructured, semi-structured, or structured data, and enable easy updates to schemas and fields.
Eliminate the complexity of message-oriented middleware with Azure Service Bus and AWS SNS/SQS. You can now access messaging queue services with ease, helping you transmit any volume of data across applications and keep tabs on whether your messages are being delivered.
Relational database services
Enhance your database availability by leveraging the ability of ColdFusion to seamlessly integrate with Amazon RDS and Azure database services. You can now set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud at a lower cost and in no time at all.
Run ColdFusion codes for virtually any type of application or service using AWS Lambda, with zero administration and automatic scaling. Now pay only for computing time, and seamlessly run your codes without thinking about the server.
