While I was doing some JVM tuning on our ColdFusion servers at work I thought I'd try out upgrading the JVM from 6.0.17 to 6.0.27 on my own server, just in case there were negative consequences :) The upgrade went off without a hitch, I'm still working on some benchmarks but so far the performance seems to have improved noticeably.

But why stop at 6u27? This is an experimental playground after all, Sooo

BAM!

ColdFusion 9.0.1 is now running on Java 7.

I'm aware of the bugs that have been reported by the Apache group in regards to certain loop scenarios. I wouldn't recommend running out and doing this to mission critical production servers, at least not until a few updates have been released.
