  • Thoroughly Document Your Use Of ColdFusion's CFHTMLHead Tag

    Posted on Oct 16, 2010 at 8:21 PM

    Yup def a bug in Railo, actually I cannot use Railo anymore because of the way it handles certain core functions from cf8. That and the bad spelling in the error messages has put me right off, its bloomin fast though. Good for basic code but you very rarely copy an application across and it works pe... read more »

  • Null Pointers Are Another Name For Undefined Values

    @Ben i'm back again! this error does seem to be more serious than I thought and looks to be related to this post here: http://www.coldfusionjedi.com/forums/messages.cfm?threadid=2BDF68EF-19B9-E658-9DDB2C6260E2CD89&page=3 something to do with poor database connection management it seems.

  • Null Pointers Are Another Name For Undefined Values

    @Ben, I'm hoping to move the whole thing over to a new server soon. They are probably the ones that came with cf 8, i'm on a shared platform so the hosting company did it, they aren't coldfusion specialists, in fact i'm not sure what they are specialists in, but lets not go there as it's a whole d... read more »

    @Ben it's on random templates! lol I think i'm going to have to put it down to this server, perhaps the driver is different from mysql 3.x and returns a row containing null values if it cannot connect to the db, or the db takes longer than it should to bring back the results thus showing the nullpo... read more »

    @Ben, Everything on the site has a date in there somewhere, but this error is happening at random, i get the error then i can refresh the page that hasn't changed database-wise or code-wise and the error goes away. I've only noticed this error occuring since changing mysql driver, another point to... read more »

    I am getting this error since change the mysql driver from 3 to 4/5. It happens at random though! I can refresh the page and then it will work fine. Anyone any ideas? I'd love to give you more information but thats the only error message I get. Message [empty string] StackTrace java.lang.NullPoi... read more »

    Just been tearing my hair out on this one after updating from mysql 3 driver to 4/5. I don't have access to the administrator so had to go through the tables with incorrect dates (ouch). Thanks!... read more »

    Hi Ben What can I say? whenever I type anything about coldfusion your site comes up, so sorry about hassling you! I have a situation where I need to do multiple cfhttp requests in quick succession, as i'm getting feeds from lots of different urls is there a way that I can do these requests at once?... read more »

    @Ben Nadel, but on my Coldfusion 8 server this code works fine, so railo should replicate this. Perhaps they both have a bug?... read more »

    looked further into this and if you have a cfhtmlhead tag and <cfflush> tag on the same page this is what happens in Railo. It does seem to be a bug.... read more »

  • Thoroughly Document Your Use Of ColdFusion's CFHTMLHead Tag

    Posted on Jan 24, 2010 at 8:45 AM

    I use cfmhtmlhead in one of my sites, it can be handy. However since porting my site over to Railo it's now outputting that cfhtmlhead content above the xhtml document definition making the site's css break. Guess it's just another reason not to use it! I have come across instances where there hasn... read more »
