Today I have installed the ColdFusion 2018 public beta and replaced the previous beta release with it. After installation the ColdBox 5 framework was broken, CF threw an error when trying to set a variable:
var appSettings = getApplicationMetadata();
For whatever reason dumping getApplicationMetadata() worked fine. However it only worked once - trying to dump it twice on the same page or assigning it to a variable resulted in an error.
After verifying the bug I uninstalled the current public beta and replaced the installation with the previous version (from the closed beta) and it worked fine again. The current and previous beta release was reinstalled twice to verify that this bug only occurs with the latest beta (same code/same server configuration).
How to reproduce: Install a ColdBox 5 application on the current beta release server and it should break right away.
Thanks for bringing this up , we are verifying this
We shall have an update for Public beta build soon which has the fix for CB 5
Thanks for the quick response Suresh, looking forward to the new build.
We have made some fixes in getApplicationMetadata().
Can you apply the latest available update (Update 1 Public Beta) to ColdFusion 2018 (Public Beta) and let us know if the issue with ColdBox 5 framework is resolved now?
thank you very much for the quick hotfix release! I can confirm that this has resolved any issues I had with CF 2018 Public Beta and ColdBox.
Keep up the good work and thanks again,
Thank you for the confirmation.
