CF & the need to parse street addresses equals CF & Java & Python

This is a POC / WIP. I have been looking for a CF or Java solution to parse addresses.
What I have found so far that works best is a Python library.

The good thing is I came across a blog post by Mark Mandel RUNNING PYTHON ON COLDFUSION there is Jthon that allows you to run Python from Java & we all know you can run Java from CF.

The Python code I want to run is here

There is a nice web based example of it here


  • Is there a PURE CF solution?
  • Is there a better Java solution?
  • Will this CF/Java/Python thing run like a slug?
  • Is there anything I missed?
