Just drop into your modules folder or use the box-cli to install

box install cborm


Unfortunately, due to the way that ORM is loaded by ColdFusion, if you are using the ORM EventHandler or ActiveEntity or any ColdBox Proxies that require ORM, you must create an Application Mapping in the Application.cfc like this:

this.mappings[ "/cborm" ] = COLDBOX_APP_ROOT_PATH & "modules/cborm";


  • Lucee 4.5+

  • ColdFusion 9.02+

WireBox DSL

The module also registers a new WireBox DSL called entityservice which can produce virtual or base orm entity services:

  • entityservice - Inject a global ORM service

  • entityservice:{entityName} - Inject a Virtual entity service according to entityName


Here are the module settings you can place in your ColdBox.cfc under an orm structure:

orm = {
injection = {
enabled = true, include = "", exclude = ""


We have also migrated the UniqueValidator from the validation module into our ORM module. It is mapped into wirebox as UniqueValidator@cborm so you can use in your constraints like so:

{ fieldName : { validator: "UniqueValidator@cborm" } }
