What is the upgrade price to go from CF version 9 to 2016 standard?
Our code was mostly written for CF MX. What should we look out for when upgrading?
There will be potentially a lot to consider but it depends on the complexity of the code. You can get the trial of 2016 and run the code analysis in the CF Admin. Although not perfect, it will give you a start on what might have been depreciated.
The only real way will be to migrate in development and test it fully in the newer version.
There isn't an upgrade path either for 9 to 2016 I don't think - You just have to buy the license for 2016 and install it separately. It uses Tomcat now instead of JRun so a lot in the underlying engine is different
Thank you! I don't know why this type of info is so hard to find or does not exist on adobe.com.
On www.adobe.com, you will always find information about the supported versions of ColdFusion. CF9 was end-of-life since 12/31/2014 and even the extended support was over 12/31/2014. That's the reason, you don't find the info about the same on www.adobe.com. However, we do have a Migration Guide, that talks about migration from CF9 to CF2016. Here is the same https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/products/coldfusion/pdfs/cf2016/cf2016-migration-guide.pdf . As far as the pricing is concerned, as Toby mentioned, you need full version of CF2016 license.
Let me know, in case you would like the Sales team to reach out to you.
I can't answer your price question. Code wise, for us, upgrading from CF9 to CF-2016 was fairly painless. Only four issues come to mind that affected us:
I will say though that the improvements to the cfscript language, capabilities, and syntax, along with the addition of queryExecute and related tags vs. the query.cfc component makes it well worth any upgrade pains you might have.
