Yes!!  But, I am not very familiar with Cold Fusion.  Oracle's WebSystem 1.0 
uses Oracle database stored procedures to dynamically generate entire HTML 
pages from the database.  In 2.0 (production on Solaris in March/April) you 
can actually use server side includes (Live HTML)to embed dynamic database 
generated areas into static pages.  Neither solution requires CGI coding for 
each query but uses calls to Oracle PL/SQL (Procedural Language SQL) in the 
database to generate the HTML.  We have found this method to be extremely fast 
when compared to CGI scripts.  WebServer 2.0 will also support server side 
Java and CGI/ODBC calls.  Oracle's WebServer solution also scales from NT 
through Large MPP UNIX systems with no changes to your database queries.  If 
you would like send me an address or voice number and I would be glad to get 
info out to you or ring you to discuss further.  Thanks.

I have several clients interested in putting ODBC compliant databases on 
line, with pre-defined queries reporting to standard HTML.  Does the 
Oracle web product do this?  How does it compare to Cold Fusion 1.0, a 
middleware HTML to ODBC database product using what they call DBML 
(subset of SGML) without the need for CGI?

Send info.
