The value returned from the load function is not of type numeric errors after migration to Coldfusion 11

I am currently testing our website with CF11. It is currently working with CF8 however after migrating it to a new server running CF11 I have encountered the following error.

The value returned from the load function is not of type numeric.

The error occurred in

D:/Applications/CFusion/CustomTags/nec/com/objects/address.cfc: line 263
Called from D:/Applications/CFusion/CustomTags/nec/com/objects/contact.cfc: line 331

Called from D:/Applications/CFusion/CustomTags/nec/com/objects/user.cfc: line 510

Called from D:/Applications/CFusion/CustomTags/nec/com/objects/user.cfc: line 1675

Called from D:/website/NECPhase2/action.validate.cfm: line 54

261 : <cfif isNumeric(get.idCountry)>

262 : <cfset rc = this.objCountry.setID(get.idCountry)>

263 : <cfset rc = this.objCountry.load()>

264 : </cfif>

265 : <cfset this.sPostcode = get.sPostcode>

Have there been any changes between CF8 and CF11 that could  cause this error?

Does anyone have ideas?

The problem is in the load function.  There is a return true at the end of the function.  The returntype of the function is set to numeric.  True is not numeric so it will throw an error.

There have been tons of changes from 8 to 11.  Can you share the code that the error is referencing?

Thank you for your quick reply.

Here is the section of code from address.cfc that the error points at:

<cfquery name="get" datasource="#sDatasource#">
    SELECT idAddressID, RTRIM(sAddressLine1) as sAddressLine1, RTRIM(sAddressLine2) as sAddressLine2, RTRIM(sAddressLine3) as sAddressLine3, RTRIM(sTown) as sTown, RTRIM(sCounty) as sCounty, RTRIM(sPostcode) as sPostcode, idCountry
    FROM tblAddress
    WHERE idAddressID = #this.idAddressID#
   </cfquery>
   <cfcatch>
    <cfscript>
     objError = CreateObject("component","nec.com.system.errors");
     iErrorID = objError.addError("load: get: #cfcatch.detail#");
    </cfscript>
    <cfset this.iErrorID = iErrorID>
    <cfreturn iErrorID>
   </cfcatch>
  </cftry>

  <cfset this.idAddressID = get.idAddressID>
  <cfset this.sAddressLine1 = get.sAddressLine1>
  <cfset this.sAddressLine2 = get.sAddressLine2>
  <cfset this.sAddressLine3 = get.sAddressLine3>
  <cfset this.sTown = get.sTown>
        <cfset this.sCounty = get.sCounty>
  <cfif isNumeric(get.idCountry)>
   <cfset rc = this.objCountry.setID(get.idCountry)>
   <cfset rc = this.objCountry.load()>
  </cfif>
  <cfset this.sPostcode = get.sPostcode>
  <cfset this.iErrorID = "">

  <cfreturn true>

The idCountry in the cfquery is an integer value. Which should return a string value such as "United Kingdom" from this.objCountry mentioned in the script below.

This script may also assist:

<cfscript>

  this.idAddressID = 0;

  this.sAddressLine1 = "";

  this.sAddressLine2 = "";

  this.sAddressLine3 = "";

  this.sTown = "";

  this.sCounty = "";

  this.sPostcode = "";

  this.objCountry = CreateObject( 'component', 'nec.com.objects.country' );

  this.iErrorID = "";

</cfscript>

I have noticed similar errors that fail on lines containing  <cfset rc = this.XXXXXX.load()>. Has something changed with the way CF11 handles this code?

Can you share the code from here:    this.objCountry = CreateObject( 'component', 'nec.com.objects.country' );

That is where the issue is going to be.. not with the calling code.  Please try not to put in just an excerpt as you may cut off something important.

The problem is in the load function.  There is a return true at the end of the function.  The returntype of the function is set to numeric.  True is not numeric so it will throw an error.
