It was working fine with no issues in CF 9. After applying this patch 9.0.1 the CFAJAXPROXY tag is broken. The following is the code: <cfajaxproxy cfc="pic.Components.PicProxy" jsclassname="oPicProxy"> <cfajaxproxy cfc="pic.Components.PicProxy" jsclassname="oPicProxy"> var picProxy = new oPicProxy(); picProxy.setErrorHandler(handleError); picProxy.setCallbackHandler(handleResult); var changeUser = function (userID) { var fm = document.fmUserAdmin; var groupID = fm.listEditGroups(fm.listEditGroups.selectedIndex).value; var sStatus = fm.listStatus(fm.listStatus.selectedIndex).value; if (fm.isProjectManagerEdit.checked == 1) var isManager = "A"; else var isManager = ""; if (fm.isJurisContact.checked == 1) var isJurisContact = "spc"; else var isJurisContact = ""; if (sStatus != "I" && sStatus != "R") { if (groupID == "0") { alert("Please select a group"); return 0; } } var result = picProxy.changeUser(userID, groupID, sStatus, isManager, isJurisContact);

I am having the same problem. After apply update CFCs called via CFAjaxProxy all cause the error "WDDX packet parse error at line 1, column 1. Content is not allowed in prolog.."

unable to reproduce the issue with 9,0,1,274712 on Windows 2008 / IIS with the attached templates. @ah_dc, the code snippet in the bug report seems to have some missing pieces. Can you please share the complete code, or check out the files I have attached, and suggest changes.

closing this. ah_dc, please check my previous comments. Feel free to reopen this if you continue to face this in a CF10 or CF11.
