What's New in CFMX--Opportunities and Challenges (One Day Seminar)

ColdFusion MX, or CFMX, is the next release of ColdFusion that brings much, much more to the table than just new CF features. Driven by Macromedia's drive to create an entirely new set of web application development tools (linking Flash, DreamWeaver, and more), it also brings to CFers the tools needed to take part in the latest development trends, including XML, web services, .NET and J2EE integration, and lots more.

In fact, there's really a lot more to CF than just those things. Sure, you may have heard about the ColdFusion component (CFC) capability, as well as the new graphing capabilities, etc. But did you know that there's really quite a bit more to CFMX than those top features that are marketed so heavily?

If you attended my seminar of a similar name and focus about CF 5, you know that we identified lots of things that you didn't hear as much about and that indeed you might not have easily found on your own. This seminar follows the same format, exploring the less popular but often more powerful and productive new features of CFMX. Of course, we'll also briefly highlight those most popular and well-discussed features as well.

As a bonus, there are many features you can leverage in CFMX that aren't discussed in any CFMX documentation, because they're really features of the underlying J2EE infrastructure. We'll point those out as well. Cool stuff!
