This demo shows how to use ColdFusion Extensions for Flex Builder 2 to easily generate a complete rich Internet application to view and maintain records in a database.

2. ColdFusion MX7 Performance Brief:

The brief measures gains in application runtime performance by comparing average page response times in a test application across ColdFusion MX7 and multiple earlier versions of ColdFusion.

New! Include ColdFusion 7 Reports and Rich Docs in your Adobe FlexBuilder 2.0.1 Apps!

The ColdFusion Extensions for Adobe FlexBuilder were updated in FlexBuilder 2.0.1 and enable the inclusion of ColdFusion 7 dynamically-generated FlashPaper 2-based banded business reports or rich documents (created using the ColdFusion 7 CFDOCUMENT tag) right in your Flex 2.0.1 applications (and they print properly too right from the Flex 2 panel).

The components can of course be pulled from the generated CF/FB Wizard app and used in any way you wish in your own home-grown app, as with all the components we generate/ship with, including the validators and Input masking components, etc (we recognize not everyone will go into production with a generated app! :)

Check it out and enjoy!

Special thanks Mike Nimer and Dean Harmon who suffered my relentless push to get this done and to the Flash player team, the Flex SDK team and the FlexBuilder team, all of whom fixed blocking bugs that made this possible.
