Adobe ColdFusion is a commercial rapid web-application development platform created by Joseph J. Allaire in 1995.[1] The programming language used with that platform is also commonly called ColdFusion, though is more accurately known as CFML. ColdFusion was originally designed to make it easier to connect simple HTML pages to a database.

Cold Fusion 1.0 was originally released by Allaire Corporation in 1995.[2] In 1996, Cold Fusion 2.0 became a full platform that included an integrated development environment (IDE) in the form of ColdFusion Studio, in addition to a scripting language.

After acquiring Allaire in 2001, Macromedia was acquired by Adobe Systems in December 2005.[3]
