What’s new in this Update

ColdFusion 2016 Update 2 :

For a struct, there isn’t a way to derive the data type info correctly and hence even today we see serialization issue where a "lastname" is being serialized as Boolean Bug #3337394.

We are providing an API on the Struct class to add metadata information to that struct object. This function will take a struct object wherein the key will be the actual key of the struct and value will be the data type of the value corresponding to that key. For example,

mystruct = StructNew() ;

mystruct.setMetadata({"lastname": "String", "age": "number"}) ;

structsetmetadata(simple,{"value":"boolean","firstname":"string", "currency": { "type": "numeric","name": "usd"}});

writedump (#mystruct.getMetadata()#); //returns: {ordered="insertion|unordered", keys={lastname="string", age="number"}}

For Array also we can set the metadata using setmetadata & getmetadata methods. Array metadata should contain the key “items” in the metadata which specifies the type of the array members.

array.setmetadata({"items":"numeric"});

writedump (#myArray.getMetadata()#); //returns: {"type":"synchronized", items="string"}

Application level support

Other than passing the type info at struct level, you can also define the at application level, like

this.serialization.structmetadata = {zipcode="String"};

If defined as above, you don’t need to define the data type for zipcode for all the struct which contains this key. At run-time, if the metadata of the struct is not passed at struct level but is defined at application level then we will resolve the struct value appropriately as per application metadata info. But if defined at struct, then the defined type at struct level will take priority over the application one.

 

ColdFusion Builder 2016 Update 2

• Security Analyzer – You can view partial scan results after canceling a scan. Search for a file using the filename in Unscanned Files.

• PhoneGap – PhoneGap is upgraded to version 5.2.

• Other bug fixes – Performance, editor, Security Analyzer, etc.

We will look forward to your valuable feedback and suggestions.
