* CFML Development with Open BlueDragon

The ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) is a mature, dynamic scripting language created in 1995 but until recently, using CFML required the purchase of a pricey proprietary license. With Open BlueDragon, a Java-based, open source (GPLv3) CFML engine, web developers can now use CFML freely--in every sense of the word.
