ColdFusion MX 7 on Mac OS X

If your installing CFMX 7 on Mac OS X and getting hung up on "Starting Graphing..." then you need to add a property to your JVM Arguments. Add -Djava.awt.headless=true in your JMC Server - Settings - JVM Settings - VM Arguments.

I ran into this when installing ColdFusion MX 7 on my powerbook, other than that install went ok. I use the same steps for installing multiple versions of cfmx on jrun that I outline in my previous post.

You can find more info about installing CFMX on OSX on Sean Corfields blog, I found the java.awt.headless fix in his comments.
