Prove impact and reduce risk when rolling out new features. Optimizely Full Stack helps you experiment in any application.

At Adobe MAX the ColdFusion team showed off some of the planned features in the next release code-named "Zeus". Highlights include:

  • More security functions (using ESAPI)
  • Closures
  • REST built into components (classes). From the example shown specify a couple arguments to a function and it becomes a REST service.
  • Websockets
  • HTML 5 Charting (including a demo showing updating a chart via websockets — in the Keeping Current video below)
  • Tomcat as default engine

After viewing both videos this is not the full list for ColdFusion Zeus but a nice primer of what is to come (and includes standard disclaimers that things may change).

The Videos

Keeping Current with ColdFusion — Provides a quick overview of ColdFusion 8 & 9 but mostly covers what is in Zeus.

What's Next in ColdFusion — Focused solely on ColdFusion Zeus and covers a lot of the new features
