ColdFusion 301 – Adobe ColdFusion – Advanced: Java for ColdFusion Programmers

Class Description
Java is the dominant programming language, but for many ColdFusion programmers, the idea of dealing with a new syntax plus a very different way of thinking is intimidating. Learning the Java syntax isn’t enough; Participants need to learn how to model applications properly. This class will help Participants use Participants’ existing ColdFusion knowledge to attain a solid foundation of both OO and the Java language. Over the 5-day course, participants will learn about ColdFusion extensibility as well. Built within ColdFusion is the structure necessary to add to its capabilities. ColdFusion is able to handle most of the Participants everyday needs as a programmer with just a few lines. Plus, ColdFusion can simply be extended with JAVA.

Suggested Prerequisites
Because of the advanced level of material covered in this class, we do require students to attend the Adobe ColdFusion – Fast Track to ColdFusion and Adobe ColdFusion – Advanced ColdFusion Development classes or have the equivalent knowledge. We also recommend that you have the Adobe ColdFusion software before starting the class. You can purchase the software or obtain a trial version of it from the Adobe website.
