    Coldfusion 9.0.1 cumulative hot fix question...

    samd

      We have CHF2 on our 9.0.1 server plus alll post CHF2 security updates. Just the other day I noticed that a cumulative HF 3 and 4 were released and I must have missed these in early 2013 when they were released. My question is is a CHF2 server with all security updates equivalent to CHF with all security updates? Or did CHF3 and CHF4 get some non security related hotfixes and other enhancements? 

       

      I'm asking all of this as I'd like to get to the latest JDK 1.7.

       

      And if I should update to CHF4 can I just apply that directly? Or are there possibly a few files in CFIDE and WEBINF or jars that were the non security related hotfixes?

          I think the safest thing to do would be to take some backups of your ColdFusion9 and CFIDE folder structure. Then apply CHF4 for 9.0.1 plus post CHF security updates APSB13-19 and APSB13-27 (section 2 for 9.0.1). Your ColdFusion9\lib\updates folder will have these JAR files present once you have completed that process - chf9010004 and hf901-00011.

            I thought someone would suggest that.

             

            I'm guessing Adobe will release CHF5 shortly after I decide to do this.

              Hello samd,

               

              The CHF4 included Security bulletins APSB11-29, APSB12-06, APSB12-15, APSB12-21, APSB12-26, and APSB13-03 and some bug fixes.

              You can apply CHF4 directly on the server. Also, as Carl suggested, please take a backup/snapshot of the ColdFusion files/folders including CFIDE.
