New ColdFusion Release Adds Performance Monitoring Toolset for Measuring, Monitoring, and Managing High-Performing Web Apps

Jul 17, 2018

ColdFusion has announced the 2018 release of Adobe ColdFusion. According to a post on its site, this release builds on Adobe’s industry-leading solution for creating and deploying scalable, high-performing web applications in CFML. Now in ColdFusion, the company has added an all-new Performance Monitoring Toolset, a standalone server with low overhead to control and optimize applications, and a new auto lockdown installer to help increase security in the Production Server. In addition, web developers can now boost the performance of their applications by taking advantage of asynchronous programming and various other language enhancements. And, upgrading to the 2018 release immediately allows applications to run 30% faster, according to ColdFusion.

New ColdFusion updates include:

  • Performance Monitoring Toolset: ColdFusion users can now assess the health of the system with the all-new Performance Monitoring Toolset.
  • Asynchronous programming: ColdFusion now makes it simpler to make an asynchronous call without the overhead of managing multiple threads. Boost the performance of your principal application by offloading resource-intensive code segments to a secondary thread.
  • REST Playground: Developers can now create and manage all their REST services from a single application. The simple, intuitive UI makes it a breeze to validate the accuracy of APIs. Make changes to the REST APIs without having to restart the application.
  • Server Auto Lockdown: ColdFusion System Administrators could more easily make their servers Production ready by running the auto lockdown installer. This helps implement the lockdown of production servers with a single click. All steps in the lockdown guide will be systematically followed, helping to improve security and help gain compliance.
  • API Management Platform: ColdFusion Enterprise users can use the new support for data transformation and threat protection to change the behavior of their APIs. It also supports multitenancy, which would aid to maximize resource sharing among tenants even while providing an isolated view for each.
