I'm about to start updating a site which is written entirely in cold fusion. I don't like cold fusion, and I want to use asp.net. Therefore, I'd like to slowly convert the entire site from cold fusion to asp.net. If I start with the homepage and I make it asp.net, will it still work with the rest of the site whose pages will temporarily remain cold fusion?
I don't know how they're moving data from page to page, as I haven't yet gotten access to the files (not until next week). How will that affect whether I can use .aspx and .cfm pages together in one site?
Well if they use a query string you will be able to do it. However if the cold fusion pages use a cookie or a session you might not be able to. I do not know if a cold fusion session will work with an asp.net session, or if asp.net can pick up a cold fusion cookie. The two technologies run differently and are in separate applications. I do not know enough about cold fusion to know how well they integrate, but you would definately be able to do it if they use query strings.
