Coldfusion Portal System

Last Modified: 2012-05-06

My company (a school system) is looking to obtain a portal.  Almost all of our applications are coldFusion based (multiple coldFusion servers), using Oracle DB's.  They want to solve a few problems (unify the login system, bring all app's under one roof, etc...)

Does anyone know of a good solution for this?  We do have a modest budget.  I've seen some php based portals which claim to work with our systems, but don't know how much truth is in their statements.

Thanks much for your time.

Ask the Experts

Can you be more specific on what you need.  "Portal" is a commonly used term that can refer to a variety of solutions.
Without knowing more about exactly what you want, you could take a look at :
"HomePortals is a web development framework for the ColdFusion platform                                           especially tailored for building portals and other highly modular sites."

"CF:XOOPS (eXtensible "Object-Oriented" Portal System) for ColdFusion is an alternative to similar systems (phpNuke, etc) for those more comfortable in ColdFusion."

"ColdBricks is a FREE and OPEN SOURCE web-based application for the                                      ColdFusion platform that                                     allows users to quickly generate and manage highly dynamic and modularized websites                                     and portals. "

"Gerobase is a complete and comprehensive web site management solution for small and medium organizations that need an affordable solution to build quickly website, online community, interactive portal, intranet, extranet and more!"

Two very useful sites for CF resources (where I found all the above links) are:
