Packt is pleased to announce Railo 3 Beginner’s Guide, the first book on Railo, written by CEOs of Railo Technologies, Mark Drew and Gert Franz along with contributions from Railo team members Paul Klinkenberg, and Jordan Michaels. This book is a start to finish guide to developing complex applications using the Railo Server. It also gives an in depth coverage of installing Railo Server on different environments.
Railo is a completely free, open source CFML engine that has been officially accepted as a JBoss.org project. Railo is known for its compatibility, performance, innovations and extensibility. The Railo Open Source project is led by Railo Technologies, with development work funded by consulting and support contracts, but anyone can contribute code for consideration.
Railo 3 Beginner’s Guide starts off by showing users how to install Railo, followed by the basics of CFML to allow readers to gradually build up their knowledge as well as their dynamic web applications. The book guides them to use caches, resources, event Gateways and special scripting functions that will allow them to create webpages with limitless functionality. The book also explores methods of extending Railo by adding one’s own tags to the server and building custom extensions.
Using the book readers will learn about all the resource types available, how to handle them and some easy to follow steps to optimize their application for high traffic. Developers will acquire the knowledge to create dynamic applications with the in-built Hibernate ORM and secure their server by setting up access restrictions and passwords. Finally, the book also teaches how to convert and display multimedia within webpages.
With practical examples and screenshots, this book is ideal for anyone wanting to develop their own dynamic web applications using CFML. No prior experience with Railo or CFML is required, although readers are expected to have some web application development experience and knowledge of HTML. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/railo-3-beginners-guide-to-develop-deploy-complex-applications-online/book
