lucee- – JVM-based scripting language for web apps (open-source CFML) (cvsweb github mirror)


Lucee is a light-weight dynamic scripting language for the JVM that
enables the rapid development of simple to highly sophisticated web
applications. Lucee is fully compatible with the CFML Script and Tag

Lucee is a JVM language and runs on the JVM as a servlet and will work
with any servlet container (e.g. Apache Tomcat, Eclipse Jetty) or
application server (e.g. JBoss AS, GlassFish). This package is setup
to run Lucee under Tomcat.

Configuring Tomcat to support Lucee
Lucee is a Java-based CFML engine. It runs as a servlet in a container;
this package is designed to work with the Apache Tomcat servlet container,
you will need to make a few configuration changes to tomcat to use it.
If you have not yet modified Tomcat's configuration, this readme includes
a patch which can be used:

	# patch -d ${CATALINA_BASE}/conf < \

Then skip to the next section in this file, "Starting the service
and online configuration".

If you have already modified Tomcat's configuration and need to edit
manually, there are two possible ways to proceed.

1. Insert the contents of ${PREFIX}/conf/web-lucee.xml in Tomcat's
${CATALINA_BASE}/conf/web.xml file. This will need to be kept up-to-date
with future Lucee releases.


2. Modify Tomcat configuration to include web-lucee.xml itself; this is
the method used by the patch below, initial setup is slightly more complex
but ongoing maintenance is reduced.

   a) Change the  line in ${CATALINA_BASE}/conf/context.xml to read

   b) Add lines after the first  line at the top of
      ${CATALINA_BASE}/conf/web.xml, so it looks like this:


   c) Towards the bottom of web.xml, add the CFML-related file extensions
      to the  section:


   d) Add "&lucee;" at the bottom of the  section to include
      the "lucee" xml entity defined above. This tells Tomcat to include
      the contents of the web-lucee.xml file containing the Lucee-related


Starting the service and online configuration

# rcctl enable tomcat

- If you need to set JVM options you can do so like this:
# rcctl set tomcat flags -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m

# rcctl restart tomcat

- Connect to the server and web administration pages. At first run of
a successful new installation, you will be prompted to set passwords.


- The package places the default "welcome" pages in a separate directory,
${CATALINA_BASE}/webapps/lucee-default; copy them to ${CATALINA_BASE}/webapps/ROOT
if you want to see them when you connect to http://localhost:8080/.

- Reference documentation is available at http://localhost:8080/lucee/doc/.

- You can add pages to /var/tomcat/webapps/ROOT to be used for "localhost".
Additional host configurations can be added to ${CATALINA_BASE}/conf/server.xml.
Use the localhost configuration as a template; the _tomcat user will need to be
able to write to /ROOT/WEB-INF, so set ownership and permissions

- Log files are kept in several locations. Consult them if things don't work
as expected, and don't forget to rotate/archive them as appropriate.
