Chapter 12
Customizing the Development Environment

This chapter introduces the Visual Tools Markup Language (VTML) and the Wizard Markup Language (WIZML), tag-based languages that are used internally by HomeSite, ColdFusion Studio, and JRun Studio.

You can use VTML to generate tag-specific dialog boxes and other interface elements for entering and editing HTML, XHTML, CFML, JSP, and all other supported language elements.

WIZML enables you to design and build custom wizards to gather user input and to drive application output.

The online VTML Reference contains the full syntax and descriptions of both languages.

The term Visual Tools is used in this chapter to refer to the Macromedia products HomeSite, ColdFusion Studio, and JRun Studio.
