Adobe ColdFusion Slack Channel
Mon, 05 Oct

Recently, we started an initiative to communicate more directly with our community and we have for now decided to leverage the newly created Adobe channel within the CFML Slack group.  We invite all of our community members and users to join the Adobe discussion board if you have some feedback you would like to share or communicate to the ColdFusion team.   

We will be monitoring and providing direct feedback on any questions you have, and I'll be sure to share relevant information on upcoming ColdFusion events or plans that may be interesting.

 

To join slack, please sign up here: http://cfml-slack.herokuapp.com

Once you sign up you'll receive an invite to create an account.  

Then you will need to join the #adobe discussion channel which is where we'll be participating.

 

The CFML Slack group is not managed by Adobe.  This is a community-managed group and the Adobe team will be participating in the discussions.

 

Looking forward to having more community members join the discussions!

Important update: Note that ColdFusion 10 and 11 have been updated to support Windows 10, a few weeks after this blog post was first written. Consider applying that update rather than this preliminary wsconfig update.

1.       Please take a backup of the existing wsconfig.jar at \ColdFusion11\cfusion\runtime\lib\ and move it outside ColdFusion directory.

2.       Stop the ColdFusion services and remove the older wsconfig.jar. 

3.       Download the jar files from the links above.

4.       Place them in the location mentioned in Step1 and restart IIS/ColdFusion.

5.       Please take a backup of the connector folder at \ColdFusion11\config\wsconfig\[magic number]\.

6.       Recreate the connector and test your application.

 

ColdFusion 10 32-bit/64-bit

Link for updated wsconfig.jar

1.       Please take a backup of the existing wsconfig.jar at \ColdFusion10\cfusion\runtime\lib\ and move it outside ColdFusion directory.

2.       Stop the ColdFusion services and remove the older wsconfig.jar.
