Currently we use DB credentials but the business is moving away from that and wants more secure AD account connections. Problem is my CF 2018 installation is on RHEL 7.9 and WebSphere 9.0.5.6 and CF does not run under any AD account that I am aware of. I am thinking there is no way to do what […]

Thread management with JDK21 – what’s changing and features to look forward to

JDK21 introduces a bunch of useful functionalities around thread management such as virtual thread but it also changes things with regards to thread.stop functionality which affects ColdFusion’s implementation for thread’s functionality around termination. First up, let’s understand what’s changing in thread terminate. Why is cfthread.stop handling required? The next release of ColdFusion upgrades Java to JDK21.

This blog will walk you through configuring a custom Webroot directory in ColdFusion. Step 1: Take a backup of the existing server.xml file in the (\<cf_home>\cfusion\runtime\conf) directory.

If adobe want to keep ColdFusion around they […]
