RE: [xml-dev] <offtopic>Opinions About Cold Fusion</offtopic>

I'd take this a step further and assert that because of specific
limitation of the cold fusion environment, your attempts to solve
complex problems using elegant and well known design patterns are often
going to be foiled.

Completely in my own opinion: In descending order of elegance, languages
that are popular for web development and suport good coding practices by
design are:

 - ruby
 - python
 - java (using JSP or similar)
 - perl and .net (tied)
 - javascript and php (tied)
 - cold fusion
 - java (using velocity)
