ColdFusion Supported on GlassFish, and Other Sightings

ColdFusion (wikipedia, product) was first released in '95 by Allaire which was later bought by Macromedia in '01 and merged into Adobe in '05. CF was rewritten into Java a while ago, interacts nicely with JavaEE and with Adobe's products and is still quite popular.

When we got serious about GlassFish several of us drove down to San Jose to talk with Adobe. Adding a new supported platform is non-trivial for a large vendor; the question is not "does it run?" part but "is it worth setting up my testing and support team?"... which boils down to, "do I see enough traction in my customers?". So, I'm very pleased to point to: ColdFusion 9 supports ... and Sun™ GlassFish.

Happy! And Wednesday's news should just help further.

Adding a few other recent GlassFish sightings...

Also, check out: Sun's Technology powers Verizon Developer Community.  We really need to get back to posting adoption stories - there have been quite a number of great ones in the last few months.

Comments:

ColdFusion 9 under GlassFish is really fast aswell another reason to take a look at Glassfish as your JEE server.

Thanks, Paul.

Note that we are always looking for adoption stories. If you (or anybody else) is using GF+CF in production, let us know. We will be very grateful... and may even have a thank-you gift.

any idea why GF is not listed in the official support matrix?
or is this just a documentation error?

No, sorry, I don't know. It could be that it was added late in the cycle? - eduard/o
