BlueDragon for the Microsoft .NET Framework leverages the underlying ASP.NET
mechanisms for storing Application, Request, and
Session variables - - which are automatically mapped by
BlueDragon to .NET objects. These variables can then be shared by
ASP.NET pages written in any supported language like C#, VB.NET,
... This is similar to variables shared between CFML and JSP
pages in the Java versions of BlueDragon.
BlueDragon for the Microsoft .NET Framework uses ADO.NET as the data access mechanism.
Supported ADO.NET data providers include Microsoft SQL Server,
Oracle, and ODBC (these are all delivered by Microsoft as part of
the .NET Framework), among others. An ADO.NET data provider is
analogous to a JDBC driver.
BlueDragon for the Microsoft .NET Framework enhances the CFOBJECT tag to allow
you to invoke .NET objects written in any supported programming language
(C#, VB.NET, etc.). CFX tags can also be written in any .NET programming language.
Further, BlueDragon for the Microsoft .NET Framework enables invocation of CFCs and
custom tags (as well as including CFML pages) from within ASP.NET pages. With BlueDragon,
you can leverage your existing CFML investment while enhancing your code base to take
advantage of native .NET features in ASP.NET pages.
