Who uses ColdFusion?
Also to know is, what is ColdFusion used for?
ColdFusion is a rapid development platform for building modern web applications. ColdFusion is designed to be expressive and powerful. The expressive characteristic allows you to perform programming tasks at a higher level than most other languages.
does ColdFusion use Java? ColdFusion lets you load Java libraries from a custom path that you specify. In the previous versions, you use Java libraries placed in the lib directory of ColdFusion. Those libraries are not application-specific and adding a Java library or updating an existing library is not easy.
Correspondingly, is ColdFusion still supported?
The “Core Support” for ColdFusion 11 ends on April 30, 2019. That means, no more Security patches/updates by Adobe for this version of ColdFusion after end of April 2019. Extended Maintenance and Support provides the extra time you may need, to plan your migration to Adobe's latest technology.
Is ColdFusion compiled or interpreted?
Back when ColdFusion ported onto Java in CFMX 6.0, it went from being an interpreted language to being a compiled one. Not compiled to a native executable like C code would be, but compiled into Java bytecode that is then executed by the JVM.
