A big part of the lifeblood of a good programming language is its ability to be expanded and built upon by its user community. Java, perhaps the hottest programming language of our day, certainly has this ability, along with many other languages. And CFML is certainly no exception. Extending the language, and sharing code and swappable components, helps foster the one thing all languages strive for - a living, active user community. ColdFusion excels in many ways - the hundreds of Web sites, mailing lists such as CF-Talk and our own CFDJList, and, most of all, Allaire's Developer ... (more)
