Lucee Server

Lucee Server (or simply Lucee) is a dynamic, Java based, tag and scripting language used for rapid web application development.

Lucee simplifies technologies like webservices (REST, SOAP, HTTP), ORM (Hibernate), searching (Lucene), datasources (MSSQl, Oracle, MySQL and others), caching (infinispan, ehcache, and memcached) and many more.

Lucee provides a compatibility layer for Adobe ColdFusion © CFML using less resources and delivering better performance.

Installation

You can build Lucee from source or grab one of our distributions:

Alternatively try the super-useful CommandBox standalone developer tools for CFML powered by Lucee.

Getting Help

If you are looking for commercial support, you might try one of the LAS Members.

System Requirements

Lucee is a JVM language running as a servlet on just about any servlet container; including Apache Tomcat, Eclipse Jetty, JBoss AS, and GlassFish.

We standardise on Apache Tomcat for installers and Docker containers as there is only so much time in the day.

Philosophy

The Lucee team “treats slowness as a bug". Many performance tests have shown Lucee to perform faster than other CFML engines.

Lucee attempts to resolve many inconsistencies found in traditional CFML; either forcing changes in language behavior, or providing configurable options in the Lucee Administrator.

For more peruse the Lucee Manifesto.

The Lucee team is always open to feedback and active at CFML community events, and is keen to remind people that Lucee is a community project.
