hi 2 all,

I am facing a confusion , I would like to discuss it with gurus n wizards on this forum.

Basically I have to start a project which is basically building an Enterprise application using ColdFusion MX and J2EE.

So 1st of all I have to ask IS IT POSSIBLE TO PUT COLDFUSION MX ON FRONT END AND J2EE ON MIDDLE?

AND IS IT DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT MVC AND OTHER J2EE PATTERNS?

AND WILL IT REDUCE THE PRODUCTIVITY AND INCREASE THE COMPLEXITY ?
because I have good hands on experience of JSP while I am replacing JSP with COLDFUSION MX here.

Basically, My main concern here is that IS IT POSSIBLE EASILY to integrate coldfuion MX & J2EE?

Waiting........

Thanx,

Ahsan

It is possible to integrate the two technologies. Macromedia have cheated a bit here - rather than adding a bridge between the compiled CFML generated objects (which are COM based) and Java, they've basically rewritten the CFML compiler to compile directly into Java - so ColdFusion in this context is basically just another web container.

Thanx for ur reply, so is it possible that i implement MVC and other patterns AS we do when JSP on front end instead of ColdFusion MX?

And my application will run on which server, do i need to have JBOSS or ne thing else like coldfusion server???

thanx

Coldfusion MX includes JRun I think. So you can use that as you application server. I imagine you can use a CFM as either a controller or a view, so MVC should be possible. Never done it myself though.

I 've read something about using ColdFusion on Websphere. Am planning to do some little investigation myself. A quick search on IBM site reveals some articles which sounds interesting:
ibm site

You r right axel, but the thing is that i cannt use websphere, i may use jboss. so can i integrate coldfusion with j2ee on jboss environment?

Well I have checked ibm site, its helpfull, but still its for websphere. And i dont hv its license.

Thanx.
