What else can you do with Railo Server?

This section will outline some of the features that also come with Railo Server and will give you some idea of the power behind it.

CFML compiler

Railo Server has an integrated bytecode generator (written with ASM) that directly compiles CFML written templates into Java bytecode. The compiler is very fast and, on average, it compiles a template file in less than 10 milliseconds.

In early versions, Railo Server translated CFML code into XML, then used XSL to convert it into Java, and finally used a Java compiler to generate bytecode. Since version 2.0, Railo has had an integrated bytecode generator. The compiler is able to spot syntax errors in templates and throw errors accordingly.
