Last week I had a discussion with a European client regarding a Flex project with PHP as backend. After gone through the functional specification and finally discussing the project in detail I pointed him about Railo – idea of using Railo, instead of PHP. After my evangelism he still was not fully convinced with CF as he is a long time Java and PHP programmer himself. But he promised me that he will install Railo and try it on weekend.
Yesterday I received his email. It is pasted below.
may say that u open my eyes on a technology I ignored for too long.
I’m really happy with railo and coldfusion. CF programming paradigm is
fantastic and railo works like a charm – Everything it’s so easy and simple.
I was quite scared about the pdf write function (the one with charts
inside). I seemed to me too complex and now with CF (railo) in 3 minutes
I developed one myself, incredible.
Even the server environment it’s easy to setup with debian apache +
mod_jk + tomcat.
Good! Definitively! “
What this incident says that “THOSE WHO UNDER-ESTIMATED COLDFUSION HAVE NEVER TRIED IT THEMSELVES”
