Adobe ColdFusion is a Web programming application language that allows users to develop complex, interactive websites with a limited knowledge of Web languages. ColdFusion is able to interact with many databases, including Microsoft Access. Connecting to Microsoft Access requires using a JDBC driver, which is provided by Adobe, and configuring the connection to your database. Once the ColdFusion server has access to the database, you can design pages that will read and write to your database.
