See blog article It has code and results.

Bottom line, mappings set in Application.cfc are not available in onApplicationEnd().  In CF8 they weren't available in onSessionEnd() either: this has been fixed, but it's still bung in onApplicationEnd() in CF9 and CF10.

I think Adam Camerons blog article covers it. Think of the time wasted finding this bug for yourself.

I too have encountered this bug with CF 9,0,1,274733 Enterprise on Windows 2008 R2 servers. I will add that my code has one Application.cfc in the webroot and another in a sub-folder of that webroot. The same code referencing a mapping in OnApplicationEnd will work fine in the sub-folder but not in the webroot.

Add proper testcases like applicationStop. Please modified the testcase based on applicationstop.. rather than application timeout.

We assumed that onApplicationEnd can be fired at any time, and not just in the context of an executing request. So to play it safe, application scope or better say FusionContext is not being passed. Need to relook into onApplicationEnd call and make the required changes. Too late for Cf11 GMC, will revisit later.

Have also had issues with this.datasource being missing during the end of the application lifecycle. Good time to get this into CF12 before it ships aye.

So to confirm: you will now reopen this and back-port the fix into CF10 & 11, right?

Have also had issues with the application property this.datasource not being available when calling aplicationStop() with CF11.

+1 - Per-app settings (such as mappings and data source) should be available in onApplicationEnd(), but aren't. Verified in CF10 Update 15 (build 10,292620) and CF11 Update 5 (build 11,0,05,293506).

Hi Awdhesh, Since per-app settings should be available in onApplicationEnd(), could you please re-open this ticket? Thanks!, -Aaron
