Installing and Deploying ColdFusion MX 7 on Macromedia JRun 4

Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7 supports the following configurations:

  • Server configuration - Lets you install one instance of ColdFusion MX 7 with an embedded Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) server. This configuration most closely resembles the ColdFusion MX base release and other releases prior to ColdFusion MX, such as ColdFusion 5 and ColdFusion 4.5. This was formerly known as the stand-alone configuration. For information on installing this configuration, see Installing and Using ColdFusion MX.
  • Multiserver configuration (Enterprise and Developer Editions only) - Installs JRun and automatically deploys ColdFusion MX 7 in a separate JRun server instance. For information on installing this configuration, see Installing and Using ColdFusion MX.
  • J2EE configuration (Enterprise and Developer Editions only) - Lets you deploy ColdFusion MX 7 as a Java application running on a Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application server, such as JRun 4, IBM WebSphere, or BEA WebLogic. These instructions tell you how to deploy ColdFusion MX 7 on JRun 4.

When you run ColdFusion MX 7 in the J2EE configuration, you use the application server's deployment mechanism to deploy ColdFusion MX on a J2EE 1.3 compliant application server. The Installation Wizard lets you install ColdFusion MX as either an enterprise application or a web application. Macromedia JRun 4 supports either of these options.

Installing, deploying, and configuring ColdFusion MX 7

You can deploy ColdFusion MX 7 on JRun 4 using either an EAR file or WAR files:

  • EAR file - Deploy ColdFusion MX 7 as an enterprise application with the ColdFusion web application located at the context root that you specified when you ran the Installation Wizard. Because EAR deployment automatically manages the context root, Macromedia recommends this option.
  • WAR files - Deploy ColdFusion MX 7 as one or more web applications.

To install ColdFusion MX 7 on JRun 4:

  1. Ensure that your version of JRun 4 includes all available updaters. For more information on JRun 4 updaters, go to the JRun Support Center.
  2. Locate or download the ColdFusion MX 7 platform-specific installer:
    • Windows - coldfusion-70-win.exe
    • Linux - coldfusion-70-lin.bin
    • Solaris - coldfusion-70-sol.bin
    • Other platforms - coldfusion-70-other.jar (run with java_home/bin/java -jar coldfusion-70-other.jar -i console)

    These installers are available from the CD or on the Macromedia website. There is no JRun-specific installer; you can download any version that matches your platform.

  3. Install, deploy, and configure ColdFusion MX 7, as described in the "Installing the J2EE Configuration" chapter in Installing and Using ColdFusion MX.
