Note on ColdFusion 11 Japanese Installers refreshed with Update 3
Fri, 19 Dec

The refreshed Japanese Installers that were released on December 10th 2014 had an issue in detecting the platform's Japanese language at installation time and so was defaulting to English.

While we are going to refresh the Japanese installers, if you need to go ahead with the current installers itself, you can use one of the following workarounds.

1) You can force the installer to run on top of JRE version 7 instead of the default JRE 8 that is in-built into the installer.

    To do this, you should have JRE 1.7 on your machine.

Open command prompt (Open as Administrator in case of Windows) and run the following command.

>C:\downloads\ColdFusion_11_WWEJ_win64.exe LAX_VM "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe"

Please change the paths as per your installer location and JRE/JDK location. And also please use 64-bit jre for 64-bit version of ColdFusion installer and 32-bit JRE for 32-bit ColdFusion Installer.

2) Instead of #1, you can use the following method also if you are comfortable running the installation in English itself and after installation you can change the language that ColdFusion runs on to Japanese.

 Open the file C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\bin\jvm.config and search for -Duser.language=en and replace this with -Duser.language=ja and restart the server. ColdFusion server will now in Japanese itself.

Cfgrid JS binding issue is fixed in Coldfusion 11 update 3
Fri, 12 Dec

Coldfusion 11 update 3 fixed the cfgrid javascript binding issue.(bug number 3712909,3712885)

Prior to this, js binding was broken where as CFC binding as well as URL binding were wroking properly.

As a result pagination, dynamic binding etc were not working if js binding was used though basic static grid was working properly.

Even query columns were not getting mapped to their associated grid columns.

This had happened due to our internal upgrade of EXTJS framework which did not support js binding.

So we had to write a custom js binding wrapper to make it work in coldfusion. Now everything works fine in JS binding

Bug fix for hotfix updater feature in ColdFusion 11 Update 3
Fri, 12 Dec

One of the fix which is part of ColdFusion 11 Update 3 is around the hotfix update uninstall UI. Previously when you tried to unistall an installed update from Admin UI once the uninstall was started there was no way to get its status.

Now this is fixed in Update 3 and now while uninstall is under process progress status of uninstall will be shown in Admin.

Following images below best explain this improvement in the Admin update UI

Dialog to get uninstall confirmation (This was already present)

 

 

 

 

Once uninstall is in progress follwoing dailog will show various stages of uninstall

Step 1) stopping the server

 

 

 

 

Step 2) rechecking server status

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3) Final update uninstall status

 

 

 

 

Hope this will be helpful to all those who frequently have to use the feature.
