Update 2 and earlier: JDK 7


ColdFusion 10

**JDK 1.7 is only supported on Mac OS X 10.7.3 and later. See this article for more details. ColdFusion 9.0.X does not support Mac OS X 10.7. Therefore, Cumulative hot fix 1 does not certify ColdFusion 9.0.X with JDK 1.7 on Mac OS X.

Adobe ColdFusion 11 Support for cfhtmltopdf (PDFg) on Linux

November 19, 2014 / Elishia Dvorak

Many of you would like to know if ColdFusion 11 provides support for the new PDF Generation Service (cfhtmltopdf) on Linux.

Yes, we have provided support for PDFg on Linux since May 2014 shortly after the ColdFusion 11 release.

The supported Linux environments are listed in the ColdFusion system support matrix here.

Please note the additional requirements for using this feature on Linux documented here.

At this time we do not support this feature on Mac or Solaris environments.  The recommendation is to utilize the remote capability of the service installed on a supported platform.
