ColdFusion MX 6.1 Resolved Issues

Updated August 12, 2003

This document lists significant issues that were fixed in ColdFusion MX 6.1. ColdFusion MX 6.1 also fixes many additional problems that are less significant or affect a small subset of users; these issues are omitted for clarity.

For Release Notes and a list of known issues, see the following web pages:

Contents

Administrator

32028
The behavior of the Administrator debugging settings and what the settings allow programmatically were not consistent with ColdFusion 5.
38219
The HTTP_USER_AGENT for scheduled tasks was set as "Java1.3.0" instead of "CFSCHEDULE" as in previous versions.
38572
Spaces in Microsoft Access data source names caused a generic "SQLException occurred in JDBCPool while attempting to connect" error.
39482
ColdFusion MX Administrator used the REReplace function instead of the Replace function.
44664
Migration errors were logged when migrating scheduled tasks that contain dates with invalid formats.
44935
When migrating scheduled tasks from earlier versions of ColdFusion, the proxy port was migrated even if the proxy server was undefined, causing the scheduled task to fail.
45187
Code Analyzer would not run if session variables were not enabled.
45481
The Migration Wizard was unable to run if browser pop-windows were blocked.
45746
When clicking the Driver column within Data Sources in the ColdFusion MX Administrator, an error stated "Sorting by driver type does not work in MX admin." See TechNote 18282 for additional details.
45947
The DataSourceFetchTimeStampAsString attribute was not exposed as a data source option in the ColdFusion MX Administrator.
46450
A leading space in the data source name caused the data source to verify in the ColdFusion MX Administrator, but throw an error when connecting in an application.
46910
If a site-wide or missing template handler in the root of the wwwroot was specified and a leading slash was not used, a warning was thrown that the files don't exist. The files did exist, and the exception subsystem used them despite the warning.
47211
An "Element SQLEXECUTIVE is undefined in REQUEST" error could occur after clicking on the Data Sources link or editing data sources in the ColdFusion MX Administrator, and when running a query on a ColdFusion page. See TechNote 18299 for additional details.
47673
If the "One-Time" frequency was selected and an invalid time was specified for a scheduled task, a CFLocaleTimeFormatException would be thrown.
48538
Attempting to verify a bad data source within the Administrator would cause the Administrator to hang.
48930
Scheduled tasks ran with a -1 hour time shift after the October daylight savings time change.
49158
In the Japanese version, the Code Analyzer results pop-up information contained a nonlocalized string.
49551
Changing the ColdFusion MX Administrator password in "Security/CFAdmin Password" to an extremely large password caused the user to be logged out (expected) to try the new password, but then did not accept the new password because it was too long.
49662
A scheduled task entered with a date in the past would be performed.
49867
Added a Cache web server paths option to the ColdFusion MX Administrator.
50033
The ColdFusion MX Administrator appended the user's locale to the end of each Macromedia.com GO URL in the Administrator, which resulted in errors if the user's locale had a language that didn't have GO URLs.
50180
The two data source XML configuration files could become out of sync if you specified an invalid data source name and click Cancel before creating the data source.
50417
The Keep Library Loaded check box on the Add/Edit C++ CFX Tag page in the Administrator did not keep the DLL for a C++ CFX in memory.
50605
When configuring data sources of type 'Other' within Macromedia ColdFusion MX, if a trailing space was added to the Driver Class field information, the data source would fail to verify. See TechNote 18612 for additional details.
52522 HomeSite+ was missing from the list of products in the "Use an RDS password for Dreamweaver MX or ColdFusion Studio" section of the ColdFusion MX Administrator RDS Password page.
52497 You could not click the "Use J2EE session variables" text option in the Memory Variables section of the Administrator to select the corresponding check box.

Added the ability to perform raw HTTP posts using the cfhttp tag.
38567
Added the ability to return cfexecute tag results in a variable.
39216
Using the cfinvoke tag to call a nonexistent CFC didn't result in a clear message.
39490
The cfexecute tag timeout attribute was not working properly.
39496
The cffile tag rename action required the full path for the destination attribute. Previous versions of ColdFusion required the filename only.
39564
Added username and password attributes to the cfmail tag for those mail servers that need to verify a user before sending an e-mail message.
44733
An "illegal target of jump or branch" error often occurred when a large CFML file had a switch statement spanning the entire file.
44931
When the OS Locale was set to English (Australian), the cfdirectory tag returned the date object in a format not accepted by the DateFormat function.
45093
When <cfset var...> was not at the top of the cffunction block, an "UnmatchedEndTagException" was thrown.
45471
The cfhttp tag did not allow custom headers.

46536
Using the cfftp tag with the getfile action and not specifying a full path to the file placed the file in a nonobvious directory.
46687
If you specified a structure for argumentcollection and you also specified any argument as an attribute of the cfinvoke tag, ColdFusion threw an error saying that the value specified in argumentcollection didn't exist.
47014
The cffile tag with makeunique set to True reached a hard limit of 237 files uploaded when looping 238 or more times.
47108
The cfchart tag failed with more than 16 series. See TechNote 18673 for additional details.
47279
A connection failure occurred when attempting to use the cfhttp tag to access an internet site from behind a firewall.

An extra closing cfif tag correctly threw a 'context validation' error but ColdFusion did not report the line number of the bad tag.
47433
When the number of columns returned from a cfhttp tag did not match the number of columns specified, cfhttp threw an error instead of ignoring the missing columns.
47541
If you called a template that used the cflocation tag from a browser with cookies turned off, ColdFusion would generate a URL with an improper query string for Jsession (script_name;JSESSION=...) .

47831
Using cffile action="upload/copy" without specifying a full pathname caused errors. With action="upload", the cffile tag threw an Invalid Destination exception. With action="copy", the cffile tag copied the file to the temp directory instead of the source directory.
48012
The cfhttp tag failed to time out. A timeout error was returned only after the called URL timed out. No timeout was returned if the called URL did not complete.
48190
The cfhttp tag did not communicate over SSL to proxy servers, even when HTTPS was specified in the URL.
48216
ColdFusion MX sent a Cache-control: no-cache header.
48231
If you had a call to a custom tag that took content inside a cfoutput tag that used the group attribute, and the code inside the custom tag did the inner cfoutput, only one row was printed in the inner loop.
48392
Using the cfpop tag to access the contents of a mailbox stripped out most of the line breaks from the headers.
48566
When the cfftp tag encountered an invalid date, it generated an IllegalArgumentException error.
48616
When using the cfchart tag, unexpected sorting behavior occurred when charting multiple series.
48800

49007
Submitting a selected row in the cfgrid tag that contained NULL values from a database query produced the error "The submitted cfgrid form field is corrupt."
49116
If you used a cfhttp tag with POST data inside of a loop, the first call executed correctly, but all subsequent calls would not have the form data.
49182
Japanese version: A query of queries failed when you used certain double-byte characters, including a Unicode-encoded single quotation mark ('), in the WHERE clause.
49189
The cfimport tag did not use cfmappings to look up folders.

49468
If you specified proxy settings in a cfhttp tag, the settings were ignored. See TechNote 18602 for additional details.
49488
Mail spooler logic was incorrect, and only sent half of the spooled messages in each iteration. If new mail was being added frequently, some email messages might not be sent.
49504
The cfquery group function didn't work if a cfsavecontent tag contained a child cfoutput tag.
49513
A self-closing cfdefaultcase tag caused an error.
49595
The cfhttp tag hard coded the "Content-Type: application/pdf" header to MIME parts of files attached with cfhttpparam type="file".
49704
If you attempted to use the cfldap tag to delete a single value from a multivalue attribute, ColdFusion threw an exception.
49707
When using the cfcontent tag to download a file, if you specified a filename with double-byte Japanese characters, the filename would get corrupted.
49769
When using the cfpop tag, if the parent message was multipart/* (report, alternative, and so on ) and contained an embedded message that was also multipart/*, ColdFusion threw an exception.
49779
Using dates to set the expiration in a cfcookie tag did not work correctly.
49787
When you used the cffile action="upload" tag, the fileWasOverwritten value always was "Yes" if you specified the conflict="overwrite" attribute.
49851
When looping over a cfhttp get, only the first file was retrieved successfully.
49895
The cfgridupdate tag would return a "cfgridupdate could not find the row to update or delete" error even though the record was updated.
49947
When a cffile tag delete action followed an upload with the cfftp tag, the file would be locked and it would throw an error "Attribute validation error for tag CFFILE."
49950
ColdFusion MX processed currency entries in a different form than ColdFusion 5.
49959
Running a large number of cfmail tags with a short mail interval set caused ColdFusion to send duplicate mail messages.
50015
ColdFusion did not close named cfftp connections properly.
50091
The cfdirectory tag's list action always set a blank mode value.
50148
The cfselect tag's required attribute did not work.
50272
ColdFusion MX produced an error when an invalid attribute was used in a cfinput tag. ColdFusion 5 did not produce an error for the same code.
50310
The value of the cffile.serverFileName variable was not correct.
50433
When using the cfftp tag to retrieve directory information from a Microsoft FTP server, the directory list returned nothing if there was only one file in the target folder.
51100
A query of queries DISTINCT on BIT column caused a Java casting error.
51391
Putting an invalid character, such as a comma, in a cookie name in the cfcookie tag caused ColdFusion to generate an empty page.
52374
Text was truncated in a cfcontent tag used inside of custom tags when the execution mode was End.

52737
The cfdirectory tag was not thread-safe.
52039
The cfldap tag did not handle rebind correctly.
52467
Using both the cfsilent tag and the cfexit tag in a custom tag could cause errors.

Code Analyzer

39428
Some of the regular expressions in ColdFusion Administrator code didn't meet the new standards.
44684
The Code Analyzer did not recognize that Scope names are reserved words in ColdFusion MX where they were not in ColdFusion 5. (It still cannot identify issues with dynamically named variables.)
47517
If a session timed out while running the Code Analyzer and you clicked one of the icons, the feature, or the document link, the Administrator login screen appeared. If you entered the Administrator password, the Code Analyzer screen appeared with the Code Analyzer Return to Feature, Print Report, and Close Window links in a frame at the top, the Administrator menu to the left in a frame, and a blank blue frame in the main body of the screen.
49229
The behavior of the cfprocparam tag maxlength attribute was changed for ColdFusion MX, but the Code Analyzer failed to issue warnings about the change.

ColdFusion components

34762
A cfinclude tag used in a cffunction tag did not inherit access to the Arguments, local variables, and This scopes.
38118
Variables set in the Variables scope in components were not available in the unprefixed scope.
44580
When a component method was invoked dynamically, the arguments had to be passed individually, not as part of the ArgumentCollection.
45138
There was an overlap between the Variables scope of the calling page and that of the CFC.
45387
Variables declared without a prefix weren't accessible with the Variables prefix within a CFC function.
45655
When creating a ColdFusion component for Flash Remoting, adding a roles attribute in the cffunction tag caused Flash to not recognize the function.
46981
Added the Super keyword, which lets you call overridden methods.
48093 48234
CFC lookups on UNIX did not default to the lowercase filename.
49602
Invalid characters in a cffunction tag name attribute weren't caught by the ColdFusion MX compiler.
49705
cfquery tags used in CFCs did not participate in cftransaction operations of the code that called them.
50100
ColdFusion MX did not search for both the given (case-correct) name and the all-lower-case name for custom tags and components on UNIX.
51062
A Variables scope variable on included pages couldn't be found.

COM

Enhancement
COM support has been upgraded to use J-Integra Release 1.5.5.
Enhancement
A new ReleaseCOMObject function releases COM object resources immediately. Previously, the resources were not released until the Java garbage collector cleared them. For more information, see the CFML Reference.
Enhancement
ColdFusion can now handle COM objects that do not have a classID or progID.
44527
The cfdump tag can now dump COM objects, and displays the methods and Get and Put property TypeInfo of the object.
46305
ColdFusion MX did not manage COM object reference counts properly. If you instantiated one COM object explicitly using a cfobject tag, called a method of that COM object to instantiate a second COM object, then explicitly destroyed both objects, ColdFusion MX did not destroy the second object.
47371
In some cases, using stubs generated by com2java would generate exceptions.
48092
If you used the cfobject tag to call a Crystal Reports DLL, the DLL would not be released from memory.
48530
ColdFusion could not handle user-defined types. ColdFusion now tries to cast the type to a simple type or an object.
48564
ColdFusion could not assign values to properties of the RightFax COM object coversheetnotes.
48896
A COM object method that returned a COM object caused a "method selection" error.
48916
ColdFusion threw a code error when building an argument list for the style sheet and code while attempting XSL processing with the msxsml2 parser.
48925
You could not use a cfloop tag to loop over a collection of collections. This could cause an issue for most COM objects that are written in Visual Basic.
48964
When two empty string variables were passed by reference to two different COM objects, their values got mixed up in memory.
49692
When a method argument was described in the TypeInfo as VT_USERDEFINED, ColdFusion passed it as VT_DISPATCH.
49836
When calling a COM object method with an int as an input argument, ColdFusion MX threw a "java.lang.RuntimeException: Can not handle VT 22" error.
49840
If you created an Excel object and called the Excel quit method, the Excel process did not exit. Running a page multiple times could result in multiple Excel processes.
50026
When TypeInfo for a method specified VT_VARIANT, and ColdFusion MX passed a COM object as an input parameter, the passed COM object was prematurely released.
50354
Using the Outlook COM object caused an index of out bounds error.
50427
Excel COM object methods that return IDispatch produced objects with methods that could not be called.
50747
Memory was not released correctly.

Database

45816
The cfquery tag occasionally threw the exception "[Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]No ResultSet set was produced."
47822
The SQLServer data type REAL with NOT NULL could not be retrieved by the JDBC driver.
48745
ColdFusion MX terminated varchar strings returned by an Oracle stored procedure at 4001 characters.
48773
When using the Oracle OCI8 Type 2 driver or Oracle JDBC Thin Type 4 driver to insert blob data, the error "Error casting an object of type [B to an incompatible type" was generated.
49715
A data type such as Oracle number(22) lost precision to 12 digits when referred to as a variable and used in a second cfquery tag. Sybase was also affected.
49733
Using the ColdFusion driver to select a CLOB field from a DB2 database threw a "String index out of Range" exception.
49753
The cfstoredprocparam tag failed to insert NULLs into CF_SQL_NUMERIC and CF_SQL_INTEGER, but not CF_SQL_VARCHAR.
49775
Client variable storage to an Oracle database using the ColdFusion JDBC driver threw exceptions under load when large amounts of text data were stored.
50588 When using the char data type in an Informix 9.21 database accessed using the ColdFusion Informix driver, if the field type was 4093 ( my_field char( 4093 )) or higher, any SELECT statements failed with a "Column size too large" error.
51595
Doing a number of insert queries within a cftransaction block with a string that contained a single-quotation mark caused ColdFusion MX to throw an error.
52014 DB2 users had to put all SQL statements in a query on a single line when using the ColdFusion MX DB2 driver. The ColdFusion MX 6.1 driver now automatically strips newlines from the SQL.
52378
A query of a query of queries that was generated with the maxrows attribute did not produce the expected results.
52419
Some ODBC data sources could not be verified after upgrading from ColdFusion 5 due to errors in port number migration.
52485
A database query that ran longer than the data source timeout could hold up all attempts to get a connection until it completed if the data source was pooled. For more information on this problem, see ColdFusion Technote 18772
52567
If the database timeout was set to less than the data source timeout, a deadlock could occur in any Oracle driver, causing ColdFusion to hang. For more information on this problem, see ColdFusion Technote 18772
52639 JNDI data sources configured using a J2EE server appeared in the ColdFusion MX Administrator Data Sources page, but not in the drop-down list of data sources on the Client Variables page.

Debugging

45798
Once any user received debugging output, the IsDebugMode function always returned Yes, even if the current browser's IP Address was not in the "debugging IP addresses" list.
47173
The Error message for a syntactically invalid SQL statement did not include the statement.
48477
The cftrace timestamp value did not change after the first trace point.
48690
There was an error in the information output of the ColdFusion MX classic.cfm debugging template.


Documentation

The ColdFusion Documentation group has made over one hundred fixes to the documentation set. In particular, the CFML Reference has undergone extensive improvement, including application of many LiveDocs comments.

Exception handling

39265
The cflocation tag did not work correctly inside an error handler.
44651
When using the cfinvoke tag to call a template that did not exist, the error was reported to be in the wrong line number.
45604
A grouped cfoutput tag with an invalid group column threw an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException error instead of returning an informative error message.
48089
A server-side ActionScript context could throw nontranslated errors when required parameters were not passed to the special versions of the cfhttp and cfquery tags in server-side ActionScript.
48921
The site-wide error handler displayed incorrect output behavior. See TechNote 18681 for additional details.

 

Flash integration

45655

Setting roles="" in a CFC function caused the Flash Authoring service browser to fail browsing anything within the component.

Back to Contents

General server

45017
The HTTP_USER_AGENT value for the cfhttp tag was set as "Java1.3.0" instead of "ColdFusion" as in previous versions.
45253
URLs of the style downloader.cfm/filename.txt did not work with the IIS connector.
46095 48216
Under certain circumstances, ColdFusion would include the following HTTP headers in a response: Expires: Thu, 01 Dec 1994 16:00:00 GMT
Cache-Control: no-cache="set-cookie,set-cookie2"

As a result, refreshing or backing up to a page that was the result of a POST request would produce a "Warning: Page has Expired" message. Refreshing or backing up to a page that was the result of a GET request would cause the GET request to be re-sent to the server; if this page contained a form tag, the form fields wouldn't have the values that the user previously entered.
47271
The scheduler would only run approximately 16 tasks scheduled at the same time.
47462
When using the SunOne iPlanet Server 6.0 as the web server, ColdFusion did not make several CGI variables available in the CGI scope.
48778
When an XML document object text node was written with CDATA, the CDATA tag was incorrectly escaped.
48876
When a template was restored to the server, ColdFusion MX continued to run the previous version and not the backup version that was restored. This was because the modified date was older than the cached version.
48912
The Developer Edition did not reset the allowed IP address following a restart of the ColdFusion service.
48961
There was an issue when storing Client scope data with a pound sign as the last or only character when the Client data store was a database.
49236
The jikes.exe compiler could bring the server's CPU usage to 100% and never let go.
49935
The way ColdFusion MX worked with structures as pointers differed from ColdFusion 5.
49973
Writing to a ColdFusion MX session using the put method on the casted Map object would throw an UnsupportOperationException error with named applications.
52714
Submitting a form with a large number of fields could intermittently result in an HTTP status of '500 Resetting to invalid mark'.
52816
When doing an exclusive lock with scope="session", ColdFusion MX locked all Session scopes and not just the Session scope of the request.

Internationalization

49234
Use UTF-8 as the default character set encoding (defined in the cf_root/lib/neo-runtime.xml file).
49904
ColdFusion MX and ColdFusion MX J2EE could not correctly handle non-ASCII characters in Client variables in the registry.
50415
In Asian Locales, the LSEuroCurrencyFormat function did not generate output with a Euro symbol or EUR text prefix; it used the locale's currency symbol and text instead.
