cfhttp Considerations

While cfhttp is extremely powerful, it is worth mentioning some limitations in the various versions of ColdFusion. If you plan to make heavy use of cfhttp, you should carefully consider the issues discussed here.

JRE-Related Issues in ColdFusion MX

Depending on the JRE you are using with ColdFusion MX, there are several issues you need to be aware of that have the potential to affect your use of the cfhttp tag:

  • The IBM JRE does not properly support SSL connections. If you need to make an SSL connection, consider using the SUN JRE instead.

  • The SUN JRE does not always return a 404 status code when an attempt is made to GET or POST a nonexistent page.

  • As mentioned earlier, the timeout attribute of the cfhttp tag is not supported in versions of the SUN JRE prior to version 1.4.0.
