Invoking the Google web service through a Java CFX tag

ColdFusion developers and abstract the object-oriented details. A CFX tag presents a much simpler version of what might otherwise be very complex Java code to a ColdFusion developer.

There are four steps to building a Java CFX tag:
Write the Java code.
Compile the Java code.
Configure ColdFusion Server.
Write the ColdFusion code.

In writing a Java CFX tag to wrap the Google Web APIs, you will appreciate the simplicity of both the ColdFusion and the Google interface. To create a CFX tag on the ColdFusion side, implement the com.allaire.cfx.CustomTag interface and provide an implementation for the processRequest() method. You can find the library file (JAR) for CFX tags at {CFMX Install Directory}\lib\cfx.jar.

I have already used cfx for grabbing data from google and amazon, but using java stuff improves the speed I believe.
