CF implementation?

This might be a very obvious question - so I will apologize in advance. I have just started to look at CF and I think that this might be a good solution for the start of our "intranet". Our big hurdle is db connectivity. I was told that CF does this very easy and I have seen this in a tutorial from the Macromedia site. My question is what exactly is needed in order to run CF.. Our company has ordered the Macromedia MX studio. Is this all I will need? I see that CF comes with the studio... This all sounds too good to be true so I am sure I am missing something. I am just starting out as a developer (as if you couldn't tell) and use DWMX. I am not expecting to have a great site at first something very simple like employee directory.

Thanks for your help.
Christina

The version of CF that's come with MX Studio is a full version demo that turns into a developer version (single IP) after 30 or 60 days, can't remember exactly the days. So you will need to buy a full version of CF MX Server, you can get prices at www.macromedia.com.

Doing db connectivity is pretty painless with CF. You basically set-up the DSN in the CF Admin and in your code you would do something like this:

<cfquery name="QueryName" datasource="DSNName">
SQL Query Here
</cfquery>

<cfoutput query="QueryName">
Output from your above query
</cfoutput>

That's about it for the basics, hope this helps you out.
