  ColdFusion MX on Mac OS X, Part 3

Response to: BEFORE YOU INSTALL CFMX on Mac OSX...

A prior user posted that any valid serial numbers for JRun and CFMX for J2EE are accepted by the Mac Versions.

I Checked with Macromedia and this does not violate their License. The Macromedia policy is to give the user flexibility on which platform to deploy.

There are, however, two considerations:

  1. OS X is not (yet) a supported Production platform for CFMX for J2EE

  2. Macromedia has no way of measuring the platform on which you install -- therefore it can't determine the interest in the OS X platform, which would lead to them releasing a Production version.

I posted this earlier, but it is worth repeating:

According to Macromedia people, those of us who want a production version of CFMX on OS X should
contact Macromedia via their wish form:


Please make sure to include the time frame you are looking to deploy OS X in production servers.

Keep those cards and letters coming!

Seriously, the main reason that there is a Developer version available is because of requests to the wish form!
