Configuring JNDI Data sources in ColdFusion

For configuring JNDI data sources, it should firstly be supported by the application server.

Tomcat server, which is built-into ColdFusion server, has the support for this by default.

While there is a blog Here on this how to configure, I want to explain few mistakes that are tend to be done while configuring. 

  One common mistake generally done is:-
  When the data source is configured from the ColdFusion administrator by providing irrelevant    username/password.
  You may tend to provide Database's username/password. This is NOT Database's username/password.
  It is the application server's username and password on which data source is configured.
  It should be left blank when the credentials are not required by the server.

Prepending java:comp/env/ is required for the actual JNDI name that is registered in xml while registering the name in administrator.

It is not mandatory that you register the JNDI data source in ColdFusion administrator.

As long as the app server supports JNDI, you can invoke the data source that is configured in the application server in cfm source code directly either in case of standalone installation or EAR/WAR deployment.
But for consistency and preferred names that can used in ColdFusion should be registered in ColdFusion.

This is applicable to both ColdFusion 10 and ColdFusion 11.


ColdFusion 11 Installers refreshed-Has fix for Server fails to start on enabling J2EE Session variables and Installation on Japanese OS

January 20, 2015 / Krishna Reddy

During first week of December 2014, we had released Full installers for ColdFusion 11 with update 3 in-built. The build number was 11,0,3,292480.

There were two issues with the build that was released(Full Installers only).

1) After Enabling J2EE Session Variables server hangs on restart/start.

2)On Japanese OSes, installer doesn't recognize the Japanese locale.

If you have applied the update 3 through Hotfix, these 2 issues won't arise for you. And also, #1 is not applicable for J2EE deployments done as EAR or WAR.


These two issues are fixed and we have refreshed the Full installers this week. The build number is: 11,0,3,292866

If you have come across #1, either you can download and use the new installer or apply the workaround on your existing server itself.

The workaround is:

Open the xml file C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\runtime\conf\context.xml (Change it as per your installation path)

and uncomment the tag: <Manager pathname="" />


    <Manager pathname="" />

Change it to:

    <Manager pathname="" />


If you have come across #2, you have to download and install.
