    I am new to server side languages and am a little confused.


    I am new to server side languages and am a little confused.

    In Cold Fusion, do you type in the syntax in a HTML editor like Dreamweaver and upload it to a server that has the Cold Fusion software installed, or is there a separate application/program that you use on you local machine?

    Also, anyone know of any tutorials that get you started with CF?

    Thanks,

    You can write CFML with any text editor like notepad, Homesite, or Dreamweaver. You upload the script file to a web server that has the ColdFusion server installed on it. Then you call the script file (with a .cfm extension) just as you would any other file. It's the same with PHP or ASP/ASP.NET.

    There are literally hundreds of different articles and tutorials on the web. Look at Macromedia.com or Builder.com for starters. There are numerous books on the subject as well.

    Yes there is a software called Cold Fusion Studio for this purpose but you can also use Dreamweaver MX to create .cfm files on your local computer
