When installing ColdFusion on Vista or on Windows Server 2008 you may receive HTTP 404.3 Error, similar to this one: HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map. Additionally if you run ColdFusion Web Server Configuration Tool, you will see a message saying that IIS components are being installed and could take between 2 to 5 minutes of time. You can resolve this error by making sure that the two required components of IIS are installed on your system. Namely: ISAPI Extensions IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility.
ColdFusion works by configuring your web server (IIS, or Apache) to execute files with known extensions (.cfm, .cfml, .cfc et al) to run as script.

When you want to use Apache Tiles, you will find that your tiles are cached and are not refershed when you reload the page in web browser. This is a non-issue in production environment because once your webapp is deployed in production you never change your Apache Tiles templates and pages. However, in a development environment this is cumbersome since you will have to redeploy your webapp each time you make a change in your templates. I faced a similar problem recently and the I found out the I could use the ' useMutableTilesContainer ' property in TilesConfigurer class and the ' cache ' property in TilesViewResolver class. You configuration should look something like this: <bean id="tilesConfigurer" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles3.TilesConfigurer"> <property name="definitions"> <list> <value>/WEB-INF/path-to-your/tiles-definition.xm
