Adobe ColdFusion 11 Support for cfhtmltopdf (PDFg) on Linux

Many of you would like to know if ColdFusion 11 provides support for the new PDF Generation Service (cfhtmltopdf) on Linux.

Yes, we have provided support for PDFg on Linux since May 2014 shortly after the ColdFusion 11 release.

The supported Linux environments are listed in the ColdFusion system support matrix here.

Please note the additional requirements for using this feature on Linux documented here.

At this time we do not support this feature on Mac or Solaris environments.  The recommendation is to utilize the remote capability of the service installed on a supported platform.

@Dan, You will install the PDFg service on Windows or Linux using the download for Add-On Services found here: https://www.adobe.com/support/coldfusion/downloads.html
Once installed on the remote machine, you will enable the service for remote access via adding the IP address to jetty.xml. Then point your CF install from Mac/Solaris to the remote PDFg Service via the Administrator Settings.
I will look into the documentation to see where we need to update it. I’m also planning to add some entries on PdF and clustering soon.

That’s rough – what are the reasons that Mac OS X is left out? I’ve searched around a bit – what is the suggested process to get a remote PDF Service running and available for us Mac users?

Unfortunately, We don’t have any current plans to add support for Mac OS X or Solaris. If that changes I’ll update the blog and repost.

What’s the prognosis for support for this feature on Mac OS X in the near/foreseeable future?
