The new website at https://lucee.org is live!

We still have plans to add a few additional features, but phase 1 looks great! A huge THANK YOU to Inge Haverkamp of Toomba and Dom Watson of Pixl8 for all of their dedication and time on this project!

Check out the latest Lucee tutorial on query return types:

This Video shows how you can use the different possible return types of the tag cfquery, next to “query” (resultset) the tag also supports “array” and “struct” as return types.

Building web applications is getting easier every day. Yet with all the various options available, this open-source CFML engine was hard to ignore. And, much to the chagrin of CF’s critics, the reports of its <CFDEMISE> have been greatly exaggerated.

CF Camp Tickets are now available!



Love hearing Lucee success stories! Makes me want to write up a few of our own greenfield projects that are built on Lucee for many of the same reasons.


This one is definitely my favourite… and I had no idea:

Always seem to be converting queries into structs. Will have to start working with this straight away!


Please do write up your success stories! We’ll feature them in the newsletter! :slight_smile:
