Macromedia Announced The Immediate Availability of ColdFusion MX 7

Macromedia (Nasdaq: MACR) today announced the immediate availability of Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7, previously code-named "Blackstone," the fastest, easiest way to build and deploy powerful Internet applications. Developers are already embracing the latest version of the ColdFusion application server, and are now solving development challenges with new printable web content, rich forms, more flexible deployment options, and integrated, structured business reporting.  ColdFusion MX 7 also provides new cost-effective and powerful innovations to interact with mobile phones using short message service (SMS) text messaging, which allows developers to create a new class of Internet applications for the mobile world.

"Building on the legacy of revolutionizing application development, ColdFusion MX 7 once again makes the hard development problems easy with groundbreaking capabilities and elegant implementation," said David Mendels, general manager, Macromedia. "ColdFusion MX 7 provides organizations with the solution to rapidly create Internet applications that solve today's business problems faster, deliver clear return on investment, and bring a better and more compelling experience for the end user."

 

ColdFusion MX 7 opens the door to the mobile Internet by providing an easy, cost-effective, and powerful way to securely extend applications to mobile phone users through SMS text messaging. Applications can also be created for access through instant messaging clients. These new deployment options enable companies to solve a broad range of emerging business needs for today's highly mobile workforce by extending the Internet beyond the browser to a wide range of mobile devices.

ColdFusion MX 7 lets developers build more powerful Internet applications in less time than ever before. New rich forms technology helps save time and effort by empowering developers to easily create superior online forms without having to code all of the presentation-tier logic. Developers can also transform dynamic web content into well-formatted, printable documents in either Macromedia FlashPaper or PDF formats.

 

New business reporting features in ColdFusion MX 7 allow developers to generate affordable, structured business reports in the context of web applications, and give users access to important business data in easy-to-understand formats.

 

ColdFusion runs as either a standalone application server or on top of leading J2EE application servers, including Macromedia JRun, IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, and Sun ONE, bringing the product's legacy of productivity to the scalable, standards-based Java platform. ColdFusion MX 7 provides a new Enterprise Manager that enables administrators to quickly and easily create multiple application instances and provides new levels of high availability and performance.  The open architecture of ColdFusion MX 7 continues to make it easy to deploy applications on Windows, Unix, and Linux platforms.

"ColdFusion MX 7 promises to be the most developer-friendly version of ColdFusion yet," said Joel Cox, IT project manager, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. "Much of the tedium of interface development is alleviated, allowing developers to spend their time working on the underlying business logic."
