Redis Lucee v1.2.0 Extension Released!

Luis Majano
Mar 05, 2019

 

 

We are very excited to bring you another release for our Redis Lucee Extension. This is our first minor release for this extension and it sports quite a few updates thanks to customer feedback. Here is a little introduction for those that are not familiar with our extension:

Overview

The Redis Lucee Extension allows you to natively connect to a Redis Server cluster and leverage it for distributed caching, session/client storage and distribution, cluster RAM file systems, and much more. It can allow your Lucee servers to scale and extend easily by leveraging Redis Server as the platform of choice for session/cluster managements, caching and virtual file-systems.

If you have ever asked yourself these questions, then our Lucee Extension can help you:

  • Want to use round-robin balancing instead of sticky sessions?
  • How do you deal with session/client information when you have more than 1 server in your cluster?
  • How can I scale my Lucee servers when I am running out of RAM?
  • Do you want your users to still be logged in even if a server in my cluster dies or is restarted?
  • Do you want to have a cluster-wide file system?
  • Are you using a container based deployment and need off heap peristence?
  • Do you want to be able to cache data in a distributed and elastic fashion?

We've updated ForgeBox to have new updaters for the following Adobe ColdFusion versions:

  • ColdFusion 2018 Update 2 - 2018.0.02+313961

Thanks to Jon Clausen as usual for getting this assembled.  For anyone using CommandBox cfengine like

CommandBox> server start cfengine=adobe@2016

you will automatically get the newest update the next time you restart your server.  However, please note this latest round of updates from Adobe have some serious known issues!  Please be very careful testing this release and make sure you backup your configuration with CFConfig first!

CommandBox> cfconfig export .cfconfig.json

Some of the known issues include breaking uses of queryExecute() as well as deleting all of your scheduled tasks upon upgrade.  Ouch.  Pete Frietag has compiled a list of the known issues here.  Please review them before trying the new updates:

Careful applying CF11u16, CF2016u8, CF2018u2
