cf_javascript gives ColdFusion/JavaScript developers the means to add exciting new "push" features to web applications with the skills they already have, by leveraging the LiveCycle or Blaze DS service installed alongside ColdFusion 8, and the Flash 9+ player installed on the browser.

Using cf_javascript without a body embeds an invisible Flex application on your page. This application opens a connection to the LiveCycle server running alongside ColdFusion 8. Later when you call cf_javascript with a body, the JavaScript code in the body is sent in a message to the invisible Flex application (it is possible to target individual or sets of recipients too) which in turn uses the ExternalInterface API to create and call a JavaScript function containing your code in the browser.


- ColdFusion 8
- LiveCycle DS or Blaze DS installed in same JVM (default if you choose to install LCDS in CF installer)
- Flash Player 9+ in connected browsers
