flashservices/gateway and ColdFusion 10

Hey! A post on ColdFusion!

(I’m so pissed at you, ColdFusion…)

So it appears that Adobe changed /flashservices/gateway* = cfusion to /flashservices/gateway/* = cfusion in uriworkermap.properties for ColdFusion 10.

ColdFusion Hates you.

Why is this a problem? Well, I have a lot of legacy content that makes AMF calls to CFCs in a system that is being upgraded to ColdFusion 10 from ColdFusion 9. And with this little change – everything is broken. I spent an entire day of work troubleshooting this and dropping mad F-bombs at CF and IIS for no good reason. I’m sure this must be buried in documentation somewhere… but I’ll offer this up publicly – since I found nothing in my search through 100,000 Google search results (most dating from 2007).

The file you’ll need is located here:

{cfroot}\config\wsconfig\1\uriworkermap.properties

It’ll look like this, initially… because someone made a bad choice:

/cfformgateway/* = cfusion
/CFFormGateway/* = cfusion
/flex2gateway/* = cfusion
/flex2gateway = cfusion
/cffileservlet/* = cfusion
/CFFileServlet/* = cfusion
/cfform-internal/* = cfusion
/flashservices/gateway/* = cfusion
/flex-internal/* = cfusion
/rest/* = cfusion
/*.cfml/* = cfusion
/*.mxml = cfusion
/*.as = cfusion
/*.cfm = cfusion
/*.cfm/* = cfusion
/*.swc = cfusion
/*.cfml = cfusion
/*.cfc = cfusion
/*.cfc/* = cfusion
/*.cfr = cfusion
/*.cfswf = cfusion
/*.sws = cfusion
/*.jsp = cfusion
/*.hbmxml = cfusion

I was originally going to just remove the damn slash but you will notice that for flex2gateway they actually have both syntax enabled – so I did the same for flashservices/gateway as well:

/cfformgateway/* = cfusion
/CFFormGateway/* = cfusion
/flex2gateway/* = cfusion
/flex2gateway = cfusion
/cffileservlet/* = cfusion
/CFFileServlet/* = cfusion
/cfform-internal/* = cfusion
/flashservices/gateway/* = cfusion
/flashservices/gateway* = cfusion
/flex-internal/* = cfusion
/rest/* = cfusion
/*.cfml/* = cfusion
/*.mxml = cfusion
/*.as = cfusion
/*.cfm = cfusion
/*.cfm/* = cfusion
/*.swc = cfusion
/*.cfml = cfusion
/*.cfc = cfusion
/*.cfc/* = cfusion
/*.cfr = cfusion
/*.cfswf = cfusion
/*.sws = cfusion
/*.jsp = cfusion
/*.hbmxml = cfusion

Don’t forget to restart the ColdFusion service after saving these changes…

  1. Thanks for trying, but this change did not work. Can’t get flash remoting to work with Coldfusion 10. Been working with CF8 and CF9 for years. /flex2gateway gives a 404 error
