  • Strange ColdFusion JRUN Stack Overflow Error

    Posted on Feb 9, 2012 at 5:54 AM

    Hello Srinivasan, A common cause for that error is if you're doing recursion and your "exit condition" isn't being met. Think of the stack as the area of memory listing all the functions/points-of-code that you're jumping between. If you jump between lots of functions/points-of-code then ... read more »

    Hi Ben, I'm curious to know if you've used FusionReactor on this server? I think it will help you a lot in tracking down your issues - especially if you've got pages timing out. (Yes I'm biased and work for Intergral - the company behind FR) Thanks, D... read more »

  • Strange ColdFusion JRUN Stack Overflow Error

    Looks like during the CFML compilation process that the compiler exceeded the stack space (an area of memory - remember the JVM isn't all about heap memory). Looks like this was the Java stack size (vs native stack size) otherwise you would have seen a HotSpot dump file & error. You can increase the... read more »

  • Thoughts On Storing Duplicate / Calculated Data In The Database

    Posted on Mar 31, 2008 at 11:20 AM

    @Peter Using that volume of data if you still wanted to keep the reports up to date you could aggregate the collated information in the nightly table with data from the source table only using a where clause to restrict the date/time being checked in the source table. So long as the date/time fiel... read more »

  • IE Has Correct Box Model In Standards Compliant Mode

    Posted on Sep 19, 2007 at 11:01 AM

    I'm sure a lot of you already know this but <cfcache /> can be a real pain with this... The tag adds a HTML comment to the top of the cached results with the URL in. Unfortunately this kills IE's recognition of the DOCTYPE causing the following to be seen: 1st view of a page (uncached) rende... read more »

  • How Do I Get A Pointer To A Built In ColdFusion Method?

    Posted on Mar 2, 2007 at 9:28 AM

    Sam I agree on the single return point. I was kinda just illustrating the point of abstracting the functionality into another function. I agree on the just use reFind() although I imagine Ben was aware of that too. I think the question was more about can you do it the pointer way and/or is there a... read more »

    Hi Ben, Yes I get what you're trying to do but probably just disgaree on it's elegance factor.... (definitely on the mad factor tho! :p) This situation sounds like it would fit the proxy(?) pattern nicely: cffunction myFind(regEx, str, sub, ....) cfif regEx cfreturn refind().... cfelse cfre... read more »

    Although I think this is interesting I think maybe WHY!? is even more interesting. I can't think of a case where this would be particularly useful? Maybe you could give a fuller example of what you're trying to do? D... read more »
