Did you know that CF2018 imports environment vars into the Server scope?

This is a hidden gem that I never saw documented anywhere: CF2018 now imports environment variables into the CF "server" scope, specifically:

server.system.environment

and java system properties into:

server.system.properties

(Thanks to Sean C for catching a mistake in the initial post.)

I learned of it last year when Pete F tweeted about it, and I assumed someone else would do a post about it, but the topic came up in a discussion today and I was surprised to not be able to find any mention of it, other than that and his mention of it in his cfdocs.org site.

And yes, Lucee had it first (as proposed initially in 2015). :-)

The feature can be useful, whether you're setting such vars when running a (Docker) container, or via JVM args, etc., and you want to be able to access them within CFML.

CF2020 to offer still-better deployment on Docker, cloud

There's great news coming regarding Adobe ColdFusion 2020, with regard to deployment of CF via Docker images and/or in the cloud.

Adobe's Director of Engineering for CF, Ashish Garg, recently held a wide-ranging interview with Michaela Light (on the CF Alive podcast) about the CF2020 roadmap.

Come learn about getting started with CF Docker images at CF Summit 2019

Docker imageI'm terribly behind in announcing it, but I'm thrilled that I've been selected to speak again at Adobe CF Summit 2019, to be held in Vegas Oct 1 and 2 (with the pre-con on Sep 30). Both topics are on using Adobe's ColdFusion Docker images, and are designed for people who have not yet gotten into Docker at all, or for those familiar with Docker but not the Adobe CF images.

After sharing the talk titles and descriptions, first for the hour-long session and then for the day-long pre-conference session, I'll share a couple more thoughts, especially for those considering going to the conference, which I highly recommend.
