My favorite tool is Allaire's ( ColdFusion. With ColdFusion, you make ColdFusion Meta language pages (*.cfm files). ColdFusion also allows use of the same scripting languages that Active Server Pages (*.asp files) do, so if you have already developed ASP pages you will not lose your coding investment. The cost of ColdFusion Server is $3500. The client development tool, ColdFusion studio is about $400.

The advantages that ColdFusion offers are that the language is elegant. You code with ColdFusion tags that look very much like HTML tags. Coding with tags is very linear. That is, with tags you seldom have to use if-then-else constructs or looping construct. Also, ColdFusion automatically handles the database connections; you do not have to explicitly code the database open and close operations as you do with Active Server Pages. Third parties have developed custom tags which, for the most part, are available free of charge, source included.

I don't know which OSes besides NT that ColdFusion 4.0 is available on, but ColdFusion Server 4.5 will be available on Windows NT, Solaris, HP-UX, and Linux.

Mery Christmas to you as well.

Hope this helps,
