    Lightbulb Where do you see ColdFusion after an year..

    Where do you visualize CF after an year...

    upfront battling (or defeating) ASP.NET ?
    losing popularity/overshadowed by ASP.NET / New version of PHP ?
    Same place if they bring out a new version soon ?

    ASP will be more popular with the Corporate crowd with Cold Fusion a close second.

    PHP will remain the geeks shoice because it's open source.

    It's altogether possible that ASP will become the dominant programming language by virtue of the overwhelming amount of money that MS is pouring into it.

    If the Java integration in the next version of ColdFusion is all it's hyped up to be, I actually think CF could take a big bite out of the JSP space. Java is great, but it's hard to develop in compared to ASP/PHP/CF.

    And if Macromedia gets tha Java integration right, that paves the way for CF to be an excellent "web front end" for lots of enterprise integration work in particular. So we might even see a bit more ColdFusion on intranets/extranets.

    I don't see it ever beating out ASP though. In fact I suspect that Macromedia are trying to pitch it as kind of a "middleware" solution that you can put over top of other systems - .NET, J2EE etc. So it may not even be playing in quite the same space as ASP/PHP in a year or so.
    that's me!

    I don't see it changing much at all. It'll continue to be an alternative to ASP for those who dig the HTMLesque syntax and appreciate it's Rapid Application Development capabilities.
