Integrating Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6 with Adobe ColdFusion 8

Use this procedure to integrate Adobe® LiveCycle® Data Services ES 2.6 with Adobe® ColdFusion® 8.

Note: Make sure that you install LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6 before completing this procedure. For more information, see the LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6 installation instructions.

Get the files required for updating

Before you can integrate LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6 with Adobe ColdFusion, use the following procedure to install ColdFusion 8 Update 1, or higher, and download the Flex 3 compiler module for Coldfusion.

  1. Install the ColdFusion 8 Update 1 (for example, 8.0.1), or higher.
  2. Download the Flex 3 compiler module for Coldfusion: Flex3_webtier_for_ColdFusion8.zip file. This file contains the Flex 3 SDK and web-tier compiler module for J2EE.

Update ColdFusion to LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6

In this procedure, you add the necessary LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6 JAR files to your ColdFusion installation.

Note: These installation instructions refer to the root directory where you installed LiveCycle Data Services ES as install_root.

  1. Shut down ColdFusion.
  2. Copy the ColdFusion WEB-INF/lib/flex-messaging*.jar files to a backup location. If you are running a multi-instance or J2EE installation, these files are in the WEB-INF/cfusion/lib directory.
  3. Copy the install_root/resources/lib/flex-messaging*.jar files to the ColdFusion lib directory.
  4. Extract the install_root/lcds.war file to a temporary directory named temp
  5. Copy the file temp/lcds/WEB-INF/lib/cfgatewayadapter.jar to WEB-INF/flex/jars. Overwrite the existing file.

Update the Flex SDK and web tier compiler

In this procedure, you update the Flex SDK and web-tier compiler in your ColdFusion installation.

  1. Back up your ColdFusion WEB-INF/flex directory, including any XML configuration files that you have modified.
  2. Unzip the Flex3_webtier_for_ColdFusion8.zip file into the ColdFusion wwwroot directory (for stand-alone installation of ColdFusion on Microsoft Windows in the default location, that directory is located at C:/ColdFusion8/wwwroot). Overwrite the existing files (which you backed up in Step 1).
  3. Copy the new SWC libraries to the ColdFusion WEB-INF/flex/libs directory:
  4. Restart ColdFusion.
