Facebook ColdFusion SDK - V3.1.1

Home | Installation | Migration | Usage | Examples

Welcome to the Facebook ColdFusion SDK Wiki documentation.


The Facebook Platform is a set of APIs that make your application more social. Read more about integrating Facebook with your web site on the Facebook developer site.

This project contains the open source Facebook ColdFusion SDK that allows you to integrate the Facebook Platform on your website powered by a ColdFusion application server.

Facebook ColdFusion SDK provides 3 components :

  • FacebookApp.cfc - A library to build apps on Facebook.com and websites with the Facebook Platform (the library is a complete port to ColdFusion of the Facebook PHP SDK V3.1.1).
  • FacebookGraphAPI.cfc - A client wrapper to call Facebook Graph API (the wrapper is inspired from the latest official .NET and Python SDKs graph clients).
  • FacebookRestAPI.cfc - A client wrapper to call the old Facebook Rest API.

Getting started

  1. You must first Download the latest version of the SDK.
  2. Install the SDK on your ColdFusion server.
  3. Use the components in your application.

To see the SDK in action, check the examples.

Migration from SDK V2

As explained in Facebook Platform Roadmap, by October 1, 2011:

  • all Website and Canvas apps must exclusively support OAuth 2.0 (draft 20)
  • all Canvas Apps must use the signed_request parameter
  • an SSL Certificate is required for all Canvas and Page Tab apps (not in Sandbox mode)
  • old, previous versions of our SDKs will stop working, including the old JavaScript SDK, old iOS SDK

Previous Facebook ColdFusion SDK (V2.*) will stop working so you MUST upgrade to V3 by October 1, 2011.

Check SDK documentation to see How to migrate from SDK V2 to SDK V3

Beta status

This is a beta release. In order to guide the development of the library, we have open-sourced the library. The underlying APIs are generally stable, however we may make changes to the library in response to developer feedback.


The Facebook ColdFusion SDK is not an official Facebook SDK such as Javascript, PHP, Python, iOS and Android SDKs.

It is developped by Affinitiz, a french social media web agency.
