event.renderData issue in Bootstrap.cfc

I’ve got a simple handler function that gets some data and uses event.renderData to render it in JSON. This works great in my dev environment. When I migrate to production I’m getting the following error

Type: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException

Template: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\nations\coldbox\system\Bootstrap.cfc
Line: 241

Here is what that part of the bootstrap.cfc looks like.

In prod I’m running

CF Version 11,0,13,303668

Java Version 1.8.0_161

In dev I’m running
CF Version 2016,0,06,308055

Java Version 1.8.0_112

Is there a known issue with renderData in ColdBox SEEK 4.3.0+188 Nehemiah using CF11 vs 2016?



There are some issues in ACF with getting the response object. We fixed these in 5

Yep, I would guess you have different versions of Adobe CF in dev and production? Adobe broke this at some point. We put in a ticket in the Adobe bug tracker if I recall but I can’t find it right now as the Adobe bug tracker is down :confused: This happened after we had basically stopped dev on ColdBox 4.x and the workaround went into ColdBox 5 which was close to release at the time (and came out in April)

Luckily for you, the upgrade path for ColdBox 5 is pretty straight forward
