ColdFusion 9.0.1 CHF 2 Released

This post is more than 2 years old.

Subject says it all. Our second CHF for ColdFusion 9.0.1 has been released. You can find details here:

Some good fixes here, including:

  • ColdFusion does not resolve the CFC's fully qualified name correctly when a relative path is used in the application mapping.
  • ColdFusion throws "java.lang.IllegalStateException: Session is invalid" exception randomly.
  • serializeJSON converts integer to string.
  • serializeJSON incorrectly serializes nested objects. Also, in the case of circular references, for example, when handling bidirectional ORM relationship, repeating entities are represented as empty strings instead of empty objects.

Woot! The first one (relative paths) is one that I filed! So happy to have that fixed. And the "Session is Invalid" issue is a near-constant nag for us at work, so that will be awesome, too!

Is the install process still a nightmare of unzipping / renaming files / poking around in filesystems / copying directories / crossing fingers?

I bet it is... ;-)

It is - as I call it - "Sub-optimal."

Will be better in Zeus. :)

"serializeJSON converts integer to string. "

Woot. That one had been driving me nuts for a while.

Just to be clear, on a fresh 901 I can apply this directly without installing previous hotfixes, right?

From the note:

Note - Cumulative Hotfix 2 consists of previously released fixes for the Security issues mentioned in the bulletins APSB11-04, APSB11-14, APSB11-15 along with the cumulative hotfix 1 and the new bug fixes. This cumulative hot fix also has the new session invalid fix added to the Security hot fix.

Sorry, I realize this is an old post, but I'm working on server upgrades and just came across this post. Is there any reason this Hotfix 2 is not listed on Adobe's site: ?

Yeah, but I've got much more street cred than Forta. Honest.
