With the upcoming release of Railo Server 3.3 RC, Railo Technologies is now proudly opening up the Railo Extension Store! The Extension Store is the central marketplace for Railo Extensions, where visitors can browse through and install the available extensions, and developers can upload and manage their own extensions. The store will make sure that your extensions get enough exposure, since all Store extensions are shown in each and every Railo Administrator around the globe!
You can check the store at http://www.getrailo.org/index.cfm/extensions
You can also check out (and install!) the Extensions from within your own Railo Administrator.
About Railo Extensions
Railo Server can be very easily extended with new functionality, by using the built-in Extension system. The types of functionality to add is endless: software packages, CFML tags, drivers, built-in functions, admin plugins, anything. All these types can be created in pure CFML by the way; you don't have to learn Java to extend Railo Server! See the Railo wiki to get started.
The Extension system is available from the Railo Administrator screen, and shows you a list of installable Extensions:
(The layout you are seeing here, is new in Railo Server 3.3 as well!)
By clicking on one of them, you'll get the details screen, and have the option to install the extension.
Some extensions are only usefull for a single web context, and some others are only usefull server-wide. Therefor, the extensions in the Web and Server Administrator do not contain the same list of extensions.
Usage for Extension developers
Navigate to the "for developers" page at http://www.getrailo.org/index.cfm/extensions/for-developers . If you do not have an account yet at getrailo.org, you will need to create one. After that, you can click on the "Submit an Extension" link, which will show you a tabbed form to enter the Extension details:
The most important field is the "Extension zip file" field, where you need to upload your Extension. For more information on creating your own Extensions, see the documentation in our wiki.
After submission, your plugin details will be checked by our team, before they are shown online. If you want Railo Technologies to technically review your plugin, then a fee applies. You can choose this option in the form itself.
At the moment, only Railo Technologies has some paid extensions in the Store. Because (re)selling third party extensions has some legal and financial implications, for the moment you must first contact us to discuss the possibilities of selling your Extension through the shop, if that is what you want to do... You can off course also choose to offer your Extension for free!
