Does using cold fusion make sense compared to JSP? - Coldfusion - Getting Started

Hello, 1) Why would I want to learn and use cold fusion, as compared to JSP? After all, isn't cold fusioin now built on top of J2ee? 2) What language do cold fusioin programmers actually "program" in ? With JSP I use java to program my logic. What do you use in Cold fusion for the business logic (as compared to java beans, servlets, etc...) ? 3) I currently use an IDE called weblogic workshop that looks like it does everything Dreamweaver does... BUT it also allows you to design by creating page flows visually -Does dreamweaver do this? Thanks! ...

    Thanks!

    I'm sure you'll get a lot of opinions on this, but in general you might
    want to consider using ColdFusion because it's less bersome to
    develop with than JSP. Yes, I know I'm setting this dicussion up for a
    flood of opinions to the contrary, but that's my story and I'm sticking
    to it. ;-) I've used both JSP and CFML and even with the newer JSTLs CF
    is still faster to develop with. Also, particularly with CFMX 7 there
    is a lot of very nice front-end functionality that doesn't exist in JSP.

    ColdFusion applications are programmed in ColdFusion Markup Language
    (CFML). Business logic in CF applications on CFMX 6 and higher (not CF
    5) can be placed in ColdFusion Components (CFCs) which are ColdFusion's
    version of objects.

    I've never used weblogic workshop so I can't address that; if you
    explain specifically how this works in your IDE you'll probably get some
    specific answers.
