This huge 1,400+ page book provides information about developing applications using ColdFusion, a web publishing tool focused on building web database applications. The book provides thorough coverage of ColdFusion programming with language reference sections, instruction, sample applications, practical advice and tips. Plenty of example code, including complete applications are included with the instruction. This is the fourth edition of the book, and includes the new features available with ColdFusion 5. A CD-Rom is also included which explores third party software, sample code and databases and thirty add-on tags designed for use with your own applications.

Authors Ben Forta and Nate Weiss do an excellent job of explaining both ColdFusion basics and advanced topics.
