Reminder: Stay Up to Date on ColdFusion Hotfixes

Not only is the Adobe ColdFusion Engineering Team busy with new software development, but of course we also spend a part of our time supporting existing customers and current versions of ColdFusion as well.

Check out the latest batch of hotfixes, and keep an eye out for future hotfixes for Adobe ColdFusion MX 7.0.2 here: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_17883 We should have another batch of important hotfixes coming in the next few weeks as well...and they all get rolled up into the next verson (Scorpio), thankfully! :)

Also, be sure to make sure you're up-to-date with the latest ColdFusion Product Security Bulletins and Hotfixes here: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/#coldfusion

Also, be sure to sign up for the Product Security Bulletin and Hotfx Notification Service here: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?e=szalert

Finally, if you're confused by all the Updater/Hotfix etc terminology, it's all made clear here (welcome to my world!): http://www.adobe.com/support/updaters/terms.html

(BTW, I've asked support if they could possibly add a proactive Notification Service for regiular product support hotfixes and Updaters as well...we'll see what we can do there longer term...)



Hi Damon, I already posted this on Ben's blog when I saw his notice about the update too, but I thought I would pass it on directly to you as well:

I just tried out hot fix hf702-52712 and I'm getting an error now when calling stored procedures because I use the free open source JTDS (v1.2) JDBC drivers.

The error I get is:

java.util.MissingResourceException - Can't find resource for base name coldfusion/tagext/sql/StoredProcTag.FoundDbVarNameException.properties

I've manually extracted the hf702-52712.jar file to examine it and indeed there is no StoredProcTag.FoundDbVarNameException.properties file.

I know I could use the Macromedia JDBC drivers, but I prefer JTDS. I'm crossing my fingers that named parameters will work for me and I hope there is a solution to fix this hotfix so it atleast does not crippled their functionality (or possibly other JDBC drivers)

Thanks, Jordan Clark

Hi Jordan,

I'm not sure of how to contact you directly, so I thought I'd start by posting a reply to your comments on Damon's blog. I'm one of the support managers for CFMX, so looking into these types of issues is one of my responsibilities. We normally investigate reported problems as part of a standard support case, but since this is a recently released hot fix, I'd like to have one of my engineers work directly with you to verify your configuration, reproduce the issue, and if necessary, revisit the fix.

Would you mind posting your contact info here so I can get someone in touch with you? Thanks!
