Problem Description:

Hitting this url : http://localhost/ws/axisVersionOneService.cfc?wsdl takes about 2-3 minutes before a wsdl is generated.  This appears to only happen when using JRE 1.7. In this case we're using the JRE that comes with CF. JRE 1.7 Build 15 I believe. 

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install CF 10 as a single server instance install.
2. Apply CF Updates up to : C:/ColdFusion10/cfusion/lib/updates/chf10000012.jar  
3. Create a folder called "ws" in C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot\
4. Copy attached file: axisVersionOneService.cfc to C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot\ws
5. Using Chrome or any other browser access the WSDL by hitting url : http://localhost[:port]/ws/axisVersionOneService.cfc?wsdl

Should experience a wait time of about 2 to 3 minutes before the SOAP markup appears in the browser window.

After the wsdl is cached it will display in under a second.    

To reproduce the issue without restarting cf do:
1. Go into coldfusion administrator -> Caching -> Clear Template Cache Now
2. Using Chrome or any other browser access the wsdl by hitting url : http://localhost[:port]/ws/axisVersionOneService.cfc?wsdl

Actual Result:

Long wait time for WSDL definition to appear.  Please note that larger services took longer to generate the WSDL.  (12 - 15 minutes) 

Expected Result:

Short wait times for WSDL definition to appear.  < 1 second

Any Workarounds:

1. Use JRE 1.6. 
2. Just wait for the WSDL to generate and cache.
3.  I did not experience the issue if I moved the cfc to the root folder and hit: http://localhost/axisVersionOneService.cfc?wsdl

Test case. --------------- <cfset startTime = GetTickCount()> <cfhttp url="http://localhost:8500/unverified/bugCF-3695114/axisVersionOneService.cfc?wsdl" method="get"> </cfhttp> <cfset endTime = GetTickCount()> <cfset diff = #endTime# - #startTime#> <cfoutput>#diff#</cfoutput> When run with JDK 1.6.0_29. The test case was taking an average of 720 ms to retrive the WSDL. When run with JDK 1.7.0_25 , the test case takes 2367 average on 10 runs. The WSDL retrieval is 3 times slower with JDK 1.7
