Take your applications to the cloud
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.
Now get a cost-effective service to send mails from any application by taking advantage of ColdFusion integration with Amazon Simple Email Service (SES). Send notifications, transactional and marketing emails, or any other content to your customers securely and easily.
Accelerate the DevOps pipeline
Deploy server settings from one instance to another, manage them through a console, and automate your admin tasks seamlessly with CF Setup. Uniformity of applications across servers is now a given.
Create and manage all your REST services from a single application. The simple, intuitive UI makes it a breeze to validate the accuracy of your APIs. Make changes to your REST APIs without having to restart your application.
CLI and Read-Eval-Print Loop (REPL)
Work with files, databases, and email, or invoke web services, by executing CFM via the command line. Execute the admin API from the CLI to script your ColdFusion server settings. Test-drive or learn CFML with REPL support in CLI.
Object-relational mapping support
Build and manage database-independent applications using object-relational mapping (ORM) without writing any SQL. Index and perform a full-text search of ORM entities with the built-in Lucene search engine, and obtain debug information through SQL logging.
Effectively manage email without writing much code. Easily send email using an SMTP server with the CFMAIL tag. Attach a callback handler to the CFMAIL tag to get delivery notifications. Manage email by connecting to an IMAP server with the CFIMAP tag, and retrieve mail from a POP mail server with the CFPOP tag.
PDF manipulation with Document Description XML (DDX)
Leverage full access to DDX to manipulate PDF documents. Perform advanced tasks, such as adding comments, bookmarks, file attachments, and headers and footers with automatic page numbers. Customize the appearance of your PDF files by setting page margins, size, and rotation.
Standardized PDF metadata
Ensure the consistency of PDF metadata across the organization. Easily create, share, and apply metadata, including copyright notice, authoring data, and keywords, by transferring metadata between PDF and XMP files.
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.
