In the blog post, you are referring to ColdBox criteria API being so slow. So is it ColdFusion bug or ColdBox bug?

Just saying that it is a ColdFusion bug does not help. Please provide us a repro case taking ColdBox out of picture.

I can't Rupesh, I don't know enough about extracting the Criteria Builder usage from within ColdBox. All I can say is that the it is the actual query itself here. /** * Comment listing for UI of approved comments, returns struct of results=[comments,count] * @contentID.hint The content ID to filter on * @contentType.hint The content type discriminator to filter on * @max.hint The maximum number of records to return, 0 means all * @offset.hint The offset in the paging, 0 means 0 * @sortOrder.hint Sort the comments asc or desc, by default it is desc */ function findApprovedComments(contentID,contentType,max=0,offset=0,sortOrder="desc"){ var results = {}; var c = newCriteria(); // only approved comments c.isTrue("isApproved"); // By Content? if( structKeyExists(arguments,"contentID") AND len(arguments.contentID) ){ c.eq("relatedContent.contentID",javaCast("int", arguments.contentID)); } // By Content Type Discriminator: class is a special hibernate deal if( structKeyExists(arguments,"contentType") AND len(arguments.contentType) ){ c.createCriteria("relatedContent") .isEq("class", arguments.contentType); } // run criteria query and projections count results.count = c.count(); results.comments = c.list(offset=arguments.offset,max=arguments.max,sortOrder="createdDate #arguments.sortOrder#",asQuery=false); return results; } The line that holds 99.9% of the execution times is this line c.list(offset=arguments.offset,max=arguments.max,sortOrder="createdDate #arguments.sortOrder#",asQuery=false); You may need to talk to Luis more about how it works, I no longer develop in ColdFusion and this bug is one of those reasons that I have moved on.

Hi Adrew, I am unable to access the link which you have shared to repro this issue. Is it possible if you can share more details with me so that I can start investigating further. Thanks for your co-operation.
