ColdFusion 11 Installers refreshed-Has fix for Server fails to start on enabling J2EE Session variables and Installation on Japanese OS

During first week of December 2014, we had released Full installers for ColdFusion 11 with update 3 in-built. The build number was 11,0,3,292480.

There were two issues with the build that was released(Full Installers only).

1) After Enabling J2EE Session Variables server hangs on restart/start.

2)On Japanese OSes, installer doesn’t recognize the Japanese locale.

If you have applied the update 3 through Hotfix, these 2 issues won’t arise for you. And also, #1 is not applicable for J2EE deployments done as EAR or WAR.

 

These two issues are fixed and we have refreshed the Full installers this week. The build number is: 11,0,3,292866

If you have come across #1, either you can download and use the new installer or apply the workaround on your existing server itself.

The workaround is:

Open the xml file C:ColdFusion11cfusionruntimeconfcontext.xml (Change it as per your installation path)

and uncomment the tag: <Manager pathname=”” />

Existing:

   <!–
    <Manager pathname=”” />
    –>

Change it to:

    <Manager pathname=”” />

 

If you have come across #2, you have to download and install.

I checked that ColdFusion blog article that announced the new ColdFusion installers, and it made no mention of CFBuilder.

Bonus #2 I see server.xml in ColdFusion11cfusionruntimeconf has the tomcat http logging disabled. Performance improvement.

Thanks again Adobe CF team, Carl.

Have been working on this problem since January 5. Went ahead and did the manual fix which allowed the service to start. Will wait for our group to get a new installer before proceeding with additional installs.

Bonus. I see it installs running Java 8 1.8.0_25 rather than Java 7. Thanks CF team.

I have checked the new installer, and confirmed it was fixed in Japanese locale. I will tell that to the Japanese CF users.
Thank you.

Thank you so much. I have been fighting with the CF11 restart issue for over a week and tried all sorts of different things and reinstalled 6 times. Uncommenting this line as thus far fixed the restart issue.
Thank you again.
