ColdFusion JDK Requirement

COLDFUSION 2018 HF1

For Application Servers

On JEE installations, set the following JVM flag, "-Djdk.serialFilter= !
org.mozilla.**;!com.sun.syndication.**;!org.apache.commons.beanutils.**", in
the respective startup file depending on the type of Application Server being
used.

For example:

Apache Tomcat Application Server: edit JAVA_OPTS in the 'Catalina.bat/sh' file

WebLogic Application Server:  edit JAVA_OPTIONS in the 'startWeblogic.cmd' file

WildFly/EAP Application Server:  edit JAVA_OPTS in the 'standalone.conf' file

Set the JVM flags on a JEE installation of ColdFusion, not on a standalone
installation.

COLDFUSION 2016 HF7

This security update requires ColdFusion to be on JDK 8u121 or higher.   Adobe
recommends that you must manually update your ColdFusion JDK/JRE to the latest
version. In case you do not update the JDK/JRE, simply applying the update
would NOT secure the server. 

For Application Servers

Additionally, on JEE installations, set the following JVM flag,
"-Djdk.serialFilter= !org.mozilla.**;!com.sun.syndication.**;!
org.apache.commons.beanutils.**", in the respective startup file depending on
the type of Application Server being used.  

For example:          

On Apache Tomcat Application Server, edit JAVA_OPTS in the 'Catalina.bat/sh'
file          

On WebLogic Application Server, edit JAVA_OPTIONS in the 'startWeblogic.cmd'
file          

On a WildFly/EAP Application Server, edit JAVA_OPTS in the 'standalone.conf'
file  

Set the JVM flags on a JEE installation of ColdFusion, not on a standalone
installation

COLDFUSION 11 HF15

This security update requires ColdFusion to be on JDK 7u131 or JDK 8u121 or
higher.   Adobe recommends that you must manually update your ColdFusion JDK/
JRE to the latest version. In case you do not update the JDK/JRE, simply
applying the update would NOT secure the server.

For Application Servers

Additionally, on J2EE installations, set the following JVM flag,
"-Djdk.serialFilter= !org.mozilla.**;!com.sun.syndication.**;!
org.apache.commons.beanutils.**", in the respective startup file depending on
the type of Application Server being used.  

For example:  

On Apache Tomcat Application Server, edit JAVA_OPTS in the 'Catalina.bat/sh'
file          

On WebLogic Application Server, edit JAVA_OPTIONS in the 'startWeblogic.cmd'
file          

On a WildFly/EAP Application Server, edit JAVA_OPTS in the 'standalone.conf'
file  

Set the JVM flags on a JEE installation of ColdFusion, not on a standalone
installation
