ColdFusion?

Hello,

I'm trying to find out more information about ColdFusion and could not find
what I'm looking for on Macromedia's website.

My question has more to do with what ColdFusion is and how web services are
supported. Specifically, I'd like to know:

Is Coldfusion nothing more than an IIS extension like ASP.NET?
Can Coldfusion and ASP.NET coexist on the same webserver?
If I build a Visual FoxPro webservice, can it be registered on the
Coldfusion web server?

If these questions don't make much sense, please bear with me, I'm only
starting to get into web development and am not the most knowledgeable on
the topic.

Any information on ColdFusion coming from a MS developer perspective would
be very appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes, Cold Fusion functions a lot like ASP.NET. It's one of ASP.NET's
primary competitors.
They can coexist on the same server. I'm sure the most recent version of
Cold Fusion must support web services.
The only problem you're likely to run into is if you want to pass data
between Cold Fusion and ASP.NET applications. They don't share Session or
Application state, so your data sharing will have to be a bit more manual.
You can share data via a common database, or you can pass data between the
two systems using querystrings, posts, hidden fields, cookies, etc.
