Can't install under Mavericks 10.9 despite having operating Java environment. None of the mandatory 10, 11 or 12 updaters run or install. Would like to know why software updates/patches are Java rather than DMG/applications. Java is a train wreck on Mavericks but we still need it for CF and other applications, so more headaches to come!

Like all software, your perception of ColdFusion is likely to be a function of your requirement and your familiarity with the product. In the U.S. Department of Defense environment I worked in for years, ColdFusion was unbeatable (I'm retired now, but it's still in use). It enabled us to provide heavy duty operations for our entire agency across 40 sites and 16,000 personnel worldwide, providing 115 ColdFusion apps from major installations even down to tactical sites in live fire areas where bandwidth was extremely limited...and do it very securely. We did that with only three ColdFusion servers, only one of which actually faced our community. There is NO user license, so our ColdFusion requirement was about $7,000 overall, the same now as it was years ago. The system was and is fully accredited for operation. Despite this, we found that a test instance could be stood up (including the MS SQL Server back end we used) on a SINGLE Pentium 4 laptop (used just to see what could be done). Despite the fact that there are a number of Open Source ColdFusion alternatives, we found that NONE of them implemented all of the features and capabilities Adobe's version did--and we used ALL of the features and capabilities and even created new ones that we provided to Adobe for consideration for inclusion in their version. Unlike the nightmare PHP users went through a few years ago when the entire codebase changed, ColdFusion has only incrementally and effectively changed over the years. So if you need a super reliable, very easy to learn, highly secure, very reasonably priced for its purpose, super capable product of this type, it definitely should be something you look at. It is NOT a practical product for single user use, but is very much so for any size of business or organization. And no, I do not and never have worked for Adobe.

$1499! Php is free, and you can set up Tomcat for free. Why pay $1499 for old technology that few use?
