Basic Understanding of Lucee

Hi,

Can someone provide a basic overview of the Lucee architecture? Do
Coldfusion applications get deployed to Tomcat or Lucee? I’m confused about
“what fits where”.

Thanks

Someone else might be able to give a more technical answer, but for all
practical purposes, apps are deployed to Lucee. Lucee is installed on
Tomcat (or another servlet engine). I could be mistaken, but don’t believe
there is a way to deploy a (precompiled) CFML app directly to Tomcat. The
source code files are uploaded to the production server and are compiled on
the fly by Lucee.

Nando, you can precompile a Lucee app into a WAR and deploy it “directly”
on Tomcat. Of course, the Lucee runtime is still there, there’s just no
CFML files. Nevertheless, here’s a good book I found currently being
written by someone in the community that talks a bit about how Lucee works
as far as web context vs server, etc:

Habenero, if you’re familiar with Java and J2EE, Lucee is a servlet that
gets deployed to a servlet container of your choice. It is mapped to
routes ending in .cf* and performs JIT compilation on CFML to bytecode
where its loaded via a custom URL classloader inside the Lucee runtime that
sits atop the J2EE runtime. Lucee’s configuration tells it where your web
root are, so simply modifying files there will make them picked up and
re-compiled. As such, you can deploy Lucee anywhere you can run Java
including Jelastic, Docker, Raspberry Pi, Win/Linux/Mac, etc. Even though
most servlet containers come with an HTTP(s) listener, most people deploy
it behind a web server like IIS/Apache/Ngnix to take care of static assets,
SSL termination and caching. You can proxy requests to your servlet
container via HTTP or AJP.

If you have more question, try to be specific. Lucee (and J2EE in general)
has a lot of stuff involved :slight_smile:

Thanks!
