#Sidecar - external session management and storage for ColdFusion

Build Status

Version 1.0.0

Updating version to 1.0.0 as of 2017-02-03. If you update from a previous version there were changes that will break backwards compat of existing sessions, so when you update all of your sessions will be restarted. You also may want to clean up your store manually just to be sure there is no sessions that hang on longer than they should.


This project depends on the following projects:

##Support Adobe ColdFusion 10+, Lucee 4.5+


  • setCookieOptions() testing, especially setting a custom cookie name
  • _getEntireRequestCache() testing

How to run the tests

  1. Download testbox from:
  2. Unzip the testbox/ folder into the root of the application (as a peer to tests)
  3. The tests expect a redis instance to be running on localhost:6379, edit the top of /tests/basicTest.cfc if your instance is different
  4. run /tests/index.cfm - will run the individual tests under basic remotely to be able to set the cookie headers

Or, if you use docker / docker-compose, you can use the included docker-compose file.

  1. Clone the project.
  2. docker-compose up -d
  3. Hit the docker ip address on port 80.

You could swap out the app service with lucee or other coldfusion version if you would rather use that.
