I have a need for end users to be able to identify a portlet which is delivering some coldfusion functionality and put it on their private page. So ideally I want to run ColdFusion10 nativley on Liferay 6.1.x (eventually 6.2).

How have others integrated ColdFusion and Liferay?

So, I've deployed the cfusion.war in the tomcat instance also hosting Liferay(6.1.x). Both are in the webapps directory. I had to work through some issues related to taglib in the web.xml of the deployed cfusion.war. But it finally deployed without errors. Now I have the issue that tomcat doesn't know what to do with a .cfm (causing the browser prompting for download of http://my.liferayserver.edu/cfusion/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm instead of rending it with coldfusion). I think I have to do some servlet mapping in the "main" /tomcat/conf/web.xml (not /webapps/cfusion/WEB-INF/web.xml)

I've seen the few blogs, forum posts and other searchable information on this. It looks like CF10 can run fronted by Apache and using mod_jk.so, but I can't do this as it will probably mess with the Liferay instance I'm using, could anyone confirm this?

Any thoughts on how to configure the pre-existing tomcat instance already hosting Liferay web.xml to map to CF servlets in the deployed cfusion.war?

Has anyone deployed ColdFusion portlets in Liferay and given permissions to users to customize their private/public pages with them?

No, you can front Liferay's tomcat w/ apache also. I've got a blog post up on it.
