Webinar: Scaling CFML Applications with Couchbase NoSQL Server

Luis Majano
Oct 30, 2013


We are very excited to partner up with the great folks at Couchbase to bring you an awesome webinar on November 19th, 2013.  Myself, Brad and Tug will be presenting on the amazing features of the Couchbase NoSQL server and how it can be leveraged for scalability with CFML applications.  Here is a synopsis of the webinar:

Scaling ColdFusion (CFML) Applications with Couchbase NoSQL Server

In modern applications, scalability is one of the most important keys to success.  High availability requires distributed systems that can scale with load and data size.  Couchbase has been recognized to be one of the fastest and easiest to scale NoSQL databases. Ortus Solutions has developed plugins for CFML applications (powered by ColdFusion and/or Railo) and Couchbase to bring this power to your CFML applications.  

Many modern applications are using NoSQL document stores for rapid development and flexible data models.  Many data needs can be satisfied by storing JSON documents that allow for on-the-fly modifications.  You can index JSON documents of any structure using map reduce functions, and execute queries against them.  Couchbase will bring both scalability, flexible data models and much more to your CFML applications.

In this webinar you'll see:

  • Overview of Couchbase Server and NoSQL Document store
  • Overview of ColdFusion (CFML) Applications
  • Distribute Java EE sessions with Couchbase Railo Extension
  • Leverage NoSQL JSON Document store from CFML
  • Leverage Couchbase as a distributed cache from any CFML application.

We are very excited to announce our very first Adobe Event on Ortus DataBoss: Dynamic Administrator!


When: Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM US/Pacific

Where: Register Here



Ortus DataBoss is an application that will help you manage CFML Object Relational Mapper (ORM) objects without the need of writing administrative code for them; thus a Dynamic Administrator. DataBoss will talk to the underlying ORM engine (Hibernate) and get all the necessary information to manage all the ORM entities and its relationships in that specific CFML application DataBoss has been deployed to. DataBoss will accelerate your project development by giving you first hand knoweledge about your entity structures, data, relationships and also help you administrate their data content for you. DataBoss can also influence the UI by adding non-intrusive metadata to your ORM entities so it can produce labels, help text, textareas, passwords, rich text editors, data pickers and much more. In this session we will introduce to you the power of dynamic scaffolding via DataBoss and also showcase via ColdFusion Builder extensions how to reverse engineer a Database, build ORM entities and then let DataBoss manage its data and relationships.
