Run Coldfusion Locally
Posted on 2011-03-10
We have a guy coming into the office claiming that he can take our coldfusion apps and put them on to flash drives to be run on our sales people's computers.
This defies common sense to me. As a PHP guy - I'm accustomed to setting up WAMP environments - which of course always include MySQL, Apache as the server, etc. You simply can't run the webapps without some degree of customization on the client computer - or some WAMP service like EasyPHP. Same thing with .NET.
Is there something I'm missing about Coldfusion? As a server side technology - I'd figure it's the same process. How would you envision he's planning on getting Coldfusion apps (tied to MySQL databases) running on flash drives - portable to anyone's computer/laptop?
