CommandBox 3.4.0 Docker images released



Today we are pleased to announce the release of version 3.4.0 of our CommandBox Docker images, which bumps the CommandBox binary version to v5.3.1. This release primarily contains optimizations and updates to leverage the new environmental support options available in CommandBox 5.3.0 and above.

Of note with this minor release, is that the image will no longer attempt to detect if a password has been set via the various environment and file-based mechanisms. Since servers run in Docker images bind the IP to all interfaces ( 0.0.0.0 ), the Server Profile is automatically set to production - which disables administrative access. Since the user of the BOX_SERVER_PROFILE environment variable is required to downgrade this profile to a less secure mode, along with the multitude of ways which admin passwords may be set, handling this in the container startup was unnecessary.

In addition, this version leverages native CommandBox support for environment variables as part of the server configuration and deprecates the use of variables which were redundant to the CommandBox versions. For more information on environment variables support, see the README

Changelog for this version:

[5.3.1/3.4.0] - 2021-06-04

Changed

  • Updates CommandBox binary to v5.3.1
  • Marked support for the following environment variables as deprecated, in favor of native CommandBox environment variables. Support for these variables will end in v4.0.0 of the image
  1. SERVER_HOME_DIRECTORY ( BOX_SERVER_APP_SERVERHOMEDIRECTORY )
  2. cfconfigfile ( BOX_SERVER_CFCONFIGFILE )
  3. CFENGINE ( BOX_SERVER_APP_CFENGINE )
  4. HEADLESS ( BOX_SERVER_PROFILE or ENVIRONMENT )
  5. SERVER_PROFILE ( BOX_SERVER_PROFILE )
  6. URL_REWRITES ( BOX_SERVER_WEB_REWRITES_ENABLE )
  7. DEBUG ( BOX_SERVER_DEBUG )
  • Eliminated random password generation on server startup, if a convention mechanism for changing was not detected. Since the server profile defaults to production, which disables the admin interface, this is no longer necessary

Fixed

  • Documentation updates and corrections

Using CommandBox Docker Images to Perform Bytecode Source Conversions

Using CommandBox Docker Images to Perform Bytecode Source Conversions

There are times when code needs to be shipped in a compiled state. It might be for obfuscation or source protection, it might just because it runs faster that way, without the CFML server needing to compile templates at runtime. It's an excellent use case for production Docker images and code deploy pipelines.
