New Atlanta is announcing today, at CFUnited Europe, a ColdFusion technology conference in London, U.K., that they will be creating and distributing a free open-source Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) version of BlueDragon, their ColdFusion-compatible web application server.

You can read the full release here:


Will Adobe follow suit with their ColdFusion server technology? They have done similar things with the BlazeDS, so it stands to reason that ColdFusion could follow the same route.

Terrence Ryan sees things differently, however, and has a good article here:

ColdFusion (CFML) Engines

CFML is the name of the scripting language used by ColdFusion and several alternative server environments. It stands for ColdFusion Markup Language and is similar to HTML in appearance in that it uses tags. CFML is the code that powers ColdFusion, a program available from Adobe (formerly Macromedia), as well as such engines as BlueDragon, IgniteFusion, Railo, Coral Web Builder, and other web development platforms.

BlueDragon – ColdFusion (CFML) Engine

The BlueDragon Server family of Java-based servers (Server and Server JX) enables the stand-alone deployment of CFML. Both BlueDragon Server versions contain a built-in web server for development and testing, and each integrates with Microsoft IIS, Sun ONE/Netscape/iPlanet (JX only), and Apache web servers for deployment.
