re: You need to find better sources. Modern CF uses scripting. There are at least 2 "free, well maintained open source" CFML engines that I know of.

  • These 2 engines are not fully compatible with the official closed-source version. For example, BlueDragon handling of importing / creating instances of objects highly deviates from Adobe CF. Lucee has a whole page dedicated to unsupported tags: and their own tags:
