I want to be able to develop, build and deploy a dynamic Web applicationssuch as being able to access records in database and modify them. I also want to be able to search the database for a document (pdf or text) that is stored in the database or whose link is stored as a string in thte database,and open it (the doc) in a browser. I have read a llittle about the fact that a combination of "Cold Fusion and Crystal Reports" can do the trick. Is this true. I am asking because I have never used either one of those prodict. Can someone tell me whether I am on the right track and of not, why not.

If I have to download a trial version of ColdFusion do I get the Studio or the Server?

Crystal Reports is not a database and is a reproting tool for writing custom reports. ASP can do everything you are talking about with a file system object. I would think CF could do all of this by itself. Perhaps you could use a combination of ASP and CF

Thanks for your response. However, my outfit has crystal reports already and I have learnt the following from a cold fusion site:


http://www.coldfusion.com/Handlers/index.cfm?ID=1545&Method=Full

Article: "Integrating Crystal Reports and Cold Fusion"

that one can intergrate Crystal Reports and Cold Fusion. I just do not know exactly what "ColdFusion" app to intergrate "Crystal Reports" with.
is it the "ColdFusion Server" or the "ColdFusion Studio"??

I want download a trial version of one of those two and test drive it.

You have to have the ColdFusion server to run a CF web site or a host that has CF Server. Looks like the CFREPOT tag is part of the server package so that's all you would need.
