IBM Promotes ColdFusion MX and WebSphere

IBM recently published an article on the advantages of integrating CFMX and WebSphere. The article starts:

The ColdFusion markup language (CFML) has a reputation for being an easy scripting language to learn. The ColdFusion tag-based programming model allows for rapid Web development, and the inherent simplicity of this model makes Internet application development possible for a wider population of developers.

It’s great to see how invested IBM is in ColdFusion MX. The article continues:

In this article, we show how Macromedia ColdFusion MX for IBM WebSphere Application Server (Application Server) can share session variables between ColdFusion and J2EE components. We show the synergy achieved by using these two powerful products in tandem.

    I think CFMX and Websphere are a great combo – I just wish that IBM pitched the two across more of their sales/marketing force.I just got back from an IBM technical briefing on Web Services where they constantly talked about consuming and producing web services with several languages such as PHP, C#, Perl, Python, etc. Unfortunately, they never mentioned CF. They had several code samples showing how to invoke Web Services using the various languages – some of them quite simple. However, it would have been great to see a CF slide in there as well with a single cfinvoke tag 😉
