Study on Implementation of Macromedia ColdFusion as a Web
Abstract - The ONR 2004-2005 Multimedia Research Team studied the implementation of Macromedia’s ColdFusion Server software as a web application server for small scale online databases. ColdFusion is utilized by the ECSU staff and integrates with the current Macromedia tools employed by the ONR media developers. The team’s goal was to utilize the University server's ColdFusion software for the implementation of a small, startup site. This site involved documenting the Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) Herbarium of Northeast North Carolina waters for the ECSU Geological, Environmental, and Marine Sciences (GEMS) department. The team developed the initial site with database files in place to begin the recording of information. The future phases of will include the insertion, manipulation, and retrieval of actual gathered data. This project sought to research the learning curve, integration, and ease of use of the ColdFusion software in comparison with other web application software.
