I am currently using Adobe ColdFusion 9 as my web development platform.
Recently Adobe has launched Version 10 of ColdFusion.
My fact is that, am I really needed to Upgrade to ColdFusion 10, why and what features are making it improved?
Caitlincarmenn, thats a good question you have asked, it is possible to get a solution to your query for this. What you need to do is upgrade to the coldfusion 10 as you term because coldfusion 10 has so much improved qualities such as of the web enhancement by support of the HTML 5. It has much more web security and enhanced java integration as compared to ColdFusion 8 or 9.
With Adobe ColdFusion 10, you may not have to worry so much about the cache folder, since it takes care of that and it is trusted.
It also supports the Representational State Transfer (REST) web service which supports all HTTP methods along with JSON and XML serialization.
Finally, it also has much interoperability with Ms Office whereby it helps to read,create and update spreadsheets using the CFSPREADSHEETS tag. You can also be able to generate PDF files and from Powerpoint and Ms Word files. From presentations with Powerpoint, you can also be able to create SWF and HTML files. So it is very convenient since it also accesses files from folders or databases in a very simple way.
I hope this helps
