Problems with configuring CF801 on Mac for System Startup

Two problems with configuring ColdFusion 8.01 on Mac OS X for startup on system boot when using the the utility {cf_root}/bin/cf-init.sh. The first issue is that cf-init.sh cannot be used again to configure CF for startup on boot after the cf-init.sh script is used to unconfigure the service. The second issue is that for Multiserver configuration the script cf-init.sh cannot be used to unconfigure CF as a startup service and the items under /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8Multi must be removed manually. The ColdFusion Engineering team is actively seeking to correct these issues, but I'm posting for your convenience in case you run into this beforehand. Issue 1 logged as ColdFusion bug 73548 On Mac, running cf-init.sh to install system startup script cannot be done a second time after running cf-init.sh uninstall. The cf-init.sh function install_mac() permanently moves the file {cf_root}/bin/cf-standalone-startup to /Library/StartupItems/ under the new name ColdFusion8 as shown here: mv -f $CF_DIR/bin/cf-standalone-startup /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ColdFusion8 Then the uninstall_mac() function in cf-init.sh permanently removes that file ColdFusion8 as shown here: rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8 There are no longer any copies of {cf_root}/bin/cf-standalone-startup under any name on the system, so another attempt to configure ColdFusion to start on System Boot cannot be performed. More details: 1) Install CF801 on Mac, but do NOT choose option to start on system boot at this time 2) Run cf-init.sh install, then cf-init.sh uninstall, then again cf-init.sh install 3) Observe second usage of cf-init.sh fails ----------------------------- * Initial directory listing after installing without option to start on boot * Notice StartupParameters.plist and cf-standalone-startup are present ----------------------------- my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ ls -l total 4296 -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 504 Nov 6 10:13 SMSClient.sh -rwxrwxr-x 1 cfqauser admin 260 Jan 19 2008 StartupParameters.plist -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 7241 Nov 6 10:13 cf-init.sh -rwxrwxr-x 1 cfqauser admin 409 Nov 6 10:13 cf-standalone-startup -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 6671 Nov 6 10:13 cfcompile.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 1501420 Jan 19 2008 cfencode.exe -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 110264 Jan 19 2008 cfencode.linux -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 527624 Jan 19 2008 cfencode.solaris -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 252 Nov 6 10:13 cfinfo -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 414 Nov 6 10:13 cfscan.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 265 Nov 6 10:13 cfstat -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 7025 Nov 6 10:13 coldfusion drwxr-xr-x 7 cfqauser admin 238 Nov 6 10:13 connectors -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 860 Jan 23 2008 findjava.sh lrwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 39 Nov 6 10:13 jvm.config -> /opt/ColdFusion8/runtime/bin/jvm.config ----------------------------- * Run cf-init.sh to install startup service * Notice cf-standalone-startup is not in bin/ directory listing ----------------------------- my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ sudo ./cf-init.sh install Password: Creating the Coldfusion 8 start script /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ColdFusion8 Install complete my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ ls /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ ColdFusion8 StartupParameters.plist my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ ls -l total 4288 -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 504 Nov 6 10:13 SMSClient.sh -rwxrwxr-x 1 cfqauser admin 260 Jan 19 2008 StartupParameters.plist -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 7241 Nov 6 10:13 cf-init.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 6671 Nov 6 10:13 cfcompile.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 1501420 Jan 19 2008 cfencode.exe -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 110264 Jan 19 2008 cfencode.linux -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 527624 Jan 19 2008 cfencode.solaris -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 252 Nov 6 10:13 cfinfo -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 414 Nov 6 10:13 cfscan.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 265 Nov 6 10:13 cfstat -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 7025 Nov 6 10:13 coldfusion drwxr-xr-x 7 cfqauser admin 238 Nov 6 10:13 connectors -rwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 860 Jan 23 2008 findjava.sh lrwxr-xr-x 1 cfqauser admin 39 Nov 6 10:13 jvm.config -> /opt/ColdFusion8/runtime/bin/jvm.config ----------------------------- * Uninstall startup service with cf-init.sh ----------------------------- my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ sudo ./cf-init.sh uninstall Uninstall complete my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ ls /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ ls: /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/: No such file or directory ----------------------------- * Again, run cf-init.sh to re-install startup service * Notice failure on mv cf-standalone-startup to /Library/StartupItems ----------------------------- my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ sudo ./cf-init.sh install Creating the Coldfusion 8 start script /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ColdFusion8 mv: rename /opt/ColdFusion8/bin/cf-standalone-startup to /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ColdFusion8: No such file or directory Install complete my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ ls /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8/ StartupParameters.plist my-powerbook:/opt/ColdFusion8/bin cfqauser$ Issue 2 logged as bug ColdFusion 73178 The cf-init.sh function for install_mac() has a section for server configuration and a section for multiserver config, but the uninstall_mac () function only has a Server Config section looking for /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8, but not a Multiserver section to remove /Library/StartupItems/ColdFusion8Multi.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
