How to change/upgrade JDK version of ColdFusion server

September 16, 2014 / Nimit Sharma

This post is from my personal blog


In this post, we discuss how to upgrade the latest minor version of JDK(Java Development Kit) of the ColdFusion server. ColdFusion can run only on top of JDK or JRE with Server VM. Oracle also started providing separate download link for JRE and Server JRE. ColdFusion only works with JDK or Server JRE and not with Client JRE [For more details refer article].

There are two ways to change the JDK or Server JRE of the ColdFusion server:
  1. Using ColdFusion administrator console.
  2. By changing the JDK or Server JRE path from the jvm.config file.
1. Using ColdFusion administrator console.
2. By changing the JDK or Server JRE path from the jvm.config file

Important Note:

  • It is not recommended to change the JDK version on the production servers without any prior testing in the staging environment.
  • Any SSL certificates added to the previous JDK will also need to be re-added to the new JDK(cacerts) file.

Speed and performance for fans of speed and performance

September 04, 2014 / Kishore Balakrishnan

As specialists in tuning web applications for maximum performance, developers at Webapper understand the expectations of a client such as RACERSITES, a leading designer, developer, and content manager for many of the top brands in motor sports. Websites for some of racing’s biggest events, such as the Grand Prix of Monaco, the Indianapolis 500, and the Coca-Cola 600, may experience traffic spikes up to 4,000% on race days. To keep race fans satisfied, Webapper leveraged Adobe ColdFusion to remove application bottlenecks and combined it with Amazon cloud services for scalability.

ColdFusion has great performance metrics monitoring capabilities,” says Patrick Quinn, co-founder and chief technology officer at Webapper. “Based on data from many years of racing events, we were able to deliver data to the Amazon engineers so they could implement pre-warming strategies that would anticipate and handle previously unforgiving traffic peaks on race days.

Before migrating to the cloud, as many as four ColdFusion servers labored to answer up to 50 requests per second. By combining extensive bottleneck analysis and tuning inside the new elastic hosting structure, the team was able to keep request levels on each server below 20 requests per second by handling large volumes with as many as eight ColdFusion servers at peak, plus an active/passive Microsoft SQL Server database cluster.

You could also get to hear from Patrick at ColdFusion Summit on October 16-17 in Las Vegas.

As a provider of IT solutions to government and private organizations, Digicon leverages Adobe ColdFusion to give itself a unique competitive advantage. Specifically, Digicon uses ColdFusion to build modules for internal implementation, then rapidly provision and host the results commercially.


Our ability to build applications in ColdFusion and quickly deliver them to customers gives us a huge advantage over competitors who use other development environments,” says Mark DeLaney, senior application developer at Digicon.


Successful projects include a youth summer job program in which Digicon replaced 50 paper forms with a new digital application system. The web-based system can be used on smartphones, tablets, and even video game consoles, which encourages greater participation from youth, as well as employers. To date, nearly 5,200 jobs have been filled, which has had a significant impact on meeting community needs.
