2 times as long to maintain a small to medium size application.

Security

Built in tags and functions for authentication and authorization, input validation, AJAX proxy security, encryption libraries and sandboxes for application separation make it easier to build secure applications with ColdFusion than with other languages.

Securing Java applications yields a longer development cycle due to manual coding required for authentication, authorization and data validation.

Requires more lines of code to accomplish input validation than with ColdFusion.

More time needed to secure PHP applications due to manual coding required for authentication, authorization and data validation.

Out of the Box Services

Hundreds of out of the box services increase developer productivity by decreasing development time and errors.

Manual coding required to create the same services . Creates more errors , longer development and testing cycles.

Manual coding required to create the same services . Creates more errors , longer development and testing cycles.

Requires additional installation and inclusion of external frameworks to enable services, adding overhead to the development cycle.
