Key Features of CFML


Batteries included

Be productive without installing many packages. Just about anything you need comes bundled.

Use the power of Java

Need something extra? Drop in jars and instantiate Java objects directly.

Robust template language

Easy, HTML-like syntax ideal for building a wide variety of web applications.

JIT compilation

Compiles to byte code and is dynamically evaluated on the Java Virtual Machine.


Supports classical Object Oriented as well as functional programming.

Built for the web

Easily access databases, natively convert HTML to PDF, parse XML, spin up APIs, or write to S3.

Get mentored the CFML way

Every language has its own way of doing things. CFML is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a CFML developer and how to write idiomatic code in CFML. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in CFML - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
