ColdFusion 9 Hosting - New Features

At Titan we use only Coldfusion Enterprise Edition, which allows for greater security through Sandbox Security and greater performance by taking full advantage of the 64-bit architecture and multithreaded Enterprise features such as the CFDOCUMENT tag, which runs only as a single-threaded process under Standard Edition.

  • Increased performance
We've taken advantage of Adobe's new Virtualisation Licensing and are running multiple instances of Coldfusion, meaning fewer sites on each server and so significantly more resource for your Application.

  • Office file interoperability
Dynamically generate office documents for reporting, decision making, and presentations. Read, create, and update spreadsheets using the new CFSPREADSHEET tag. Programmatically generate PDF files from Microsoft PowerPoint and Word files. Dynamically produce presentations in HTML or SWF from PowerPoint presentations directly on the server.

  • Object-relational mapping
Build database-independent applications using object-relational mapping (ORM) based on the open source Hibernate library. Save time and manage database logic and connectivity without writing any SQL. Use the ORM Application Wizard in ColdFusion Builder to generate ColdFusion components (CFCs) for logic and connectivity without writing a single line of code.

  • Solr Search Engine
Coldfusion 9 is bundled as standard with the Solr full-text search engine, which supports Office 2007 file formats and also offers significant performance increases over Verity.

  • ColdFusion as a Service
Leverage the power of ColdFusion enterprise services via AMF or SOAP without writing a single line of CFML. These services include CFCHART, CFDOCUMENT, CFIMAGE, CFMAIL, CFPDF, and CFPOP. Also, make your application more secure by sandboxing these services to prevent access by unknown applications.

  • Backwards compatibility
Applications written in ColdFusion MX 6, MX 7 or 8 should all seamlessly migrate to Coldfusion 9. The majority of ColdFusion 5 applications can also be migrated to take advantage of the new features of ColdFusion 9 without having to change your old code.
