Hi
What is ColdFusion? Does it support J2EE or
Web Services (Soap,...)?

Cold Fusion is a rapid application design system to create dynamic web sites without having to know alot about programming... I love it. You can check it out at Macromedia.com. They have just introduced the new MX version of the server which, according to the product sheet, incorporates their JRun server technologies as well as native xml and such.
The language is tagging with the capabilities to develop specialized function, use (almost) any scripting language (using CFOBJECT or CFSCRIPT) and has the mechanisms to combine with Flash to give some cool multimedia experiences. You can attach to almost any Database format as well as use text files, xml, and other input streams. You can also build your own tags and they are portable to any CF installation and, since it is all server side, no browser problems.
Also, IBM and SUN are going to include it in their latest editions of their app servers (WebSphere and Solaris) so that it gets an even broader base of use. (The new release is JAVA based, so it is now more portable than ever...)
I'm having to learn JAVA now, but I enjoy coding with Cold Fusion. You can do alot with a little code.....
