Macromedia has released Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7 to help developers design internet applications more quickly and integrate them more easily with mobile phones using SMS text messaging.
Macromedia said ColdFusion MX 7 also offered improved support for new applications designed for instant messaging clients.
Other features include the more straightforward creation of online forms, with less coding needed.
Developers can also transform web content into printable documents in either Macromedia FlashPaper or Adobe PDF formats.
ColdFusion MX 7 runs as a standalone application server or on top of Java-based J2EE servers, including Macromedia JRun, IBM WebSphere and BEA WebLogic.
"There is growth in the software application deployment market for internet-based applications, including at the mobile edge," said Dennis Byron, an analyst at IDC. "The open architecture of ColdFusion enables next-generation business-to-business solutions."
