    Depends what you mean by "mesh"... You can have ColdFusion widgets loaded by
    Sharepoint as webpages, but you cannot make webparts since that is a .NET thing.

    I think BlueDragon allows you to use CF code in .NET, but I have never used
    their product. I think BlueDragon would be the big product for CF/Sharepoint
    shops.

    If you mean writing an interface to SharePoint in CF, then yup.

    It was a pain in the butt, but we found that the best way to interface
    with SharePoint lists from ColdFusion was via the SharePoint web
    services. The doentation is horrible to navigate, and you will have
    to get a feel for a few different XML dialects if you have more complex
    lists set up. We had problems using the "MSXML" that came back from the
    web services ina native way, so we ended up working with it as XML
    rather than the objects that it represented. There were two schemae
    that were important, "CAML" for the forms and some XML representation
    of a pseudo-SQL used for selecting from a list.

    However you go about it, I would advise you to resist the urge to go
    straight to the database underneath SharePoint though.
