You can connect to databases when developing Macromedia ColdFusion applications with Macromedia Dreamweaver 8.
The chapter assumes you have set up a ColdFusion web application (see Setting Up a Web Application). It also assumes a database is set up on your local computer or on a system to which you have network or FTP access.
This chapter contains the following topics:

Editing or deleting a database connection
To connect to the sample database provided by Dreamweaver, see "Setup for Sample ColdFusion Site" in Getting Started with Dreamweaver. To learn more about databases and database connections, see Beginners Guide to Databases.
