Creating dynamic, database-driven Web sites used to be too cumbersome for anyone but serious hand-coding programmers. Now, thanks to Dreamweaver's improved code generation tools, you can use Dreamweaver MX and ColdFusion MX to bypass the hurdles formerly involved with creating dynamic Web applications. ColdFusion MX Development with Dreamweaver MX: Visual QuickPro Guide, written by Macromedia's own certified instructors and developers, eases you into creating complex Web applications using these improved code generation tools. The book relies on the Visual QuickPro Guide's trademark task-based format with plenty of screenshots to show you how to use Dreamweaver's built-in wizards and behaviors before moving on to tackle more complex tasks such as creating and assigning variables and performing more advanced coding in the Code View.
If you've hit a wall with your site and want to quickly and easily transform it into a full-fledged Web application through the addition of dynamic elements and database connectivity, no other book will help you reach your goal faster. Easy-to-follow step-by-step tasks let you get to work from the very first chapter, and in no time, you'll be creating database-driven Web applications that can process forms, display data from databases, prompt for logins, send email, and more.
