My Open CFML Presentation from BFusion 2009

Here's a PDF of my "Building and Deploying CFML on an Open Source Stack" presentation from BFusion 2009. The VirtualBox VM we used in the session is available here (2.9 GB zip file), and the user/password on the VM is "floss" (without the quotes) for both. The VM includes:



  • Ubuntu 9.04

  • Java 1.6.0 Update 16

  • MySQL 5

  • Apache

  • Tomcat 6.0.20

  • OpenBD (WAR and pre-deployed)

  • Eclipse with CFEclipse and Subclipse

  • A ColdTonica WAR to practice deployment


The one thing we didn't get to in my session is connecting Apache to Tomcat, but that's simple enough so give me a shout if you have trouble with that.


What we did get to (that I'm glad we did) is monitoring Tomcat and OpenBD with VisualVM, and a lot of people (based on the reaction) seemed not to be aware of that tool.


Once again this is a GREAT conference (I'd be lying if I said Ben Nadel's portion of the keynote didn't get me a little teary eyed) with great technical content and day-long training sessions. If you aren't here this year, get here next year!
