Problem Description:
After deploying an EAR file generated through Coldfusion 11 Admin, the default Custom Tags Path remains the same as path available on the server from where the EAR file was generated. This issue has been observed when Coldfusion is installed as an EAR file on JBoss Application Server.

Steps to Reproduce:
* Generate EAR file from a properly configured and functional installation
* Deploy EAR file on a different system without exploding it (eg. using the JBoss Administration Console)
* Open Extensions -> Custom Tags Page to see the default Custom Tags Path

Actual Result:
The EAR file installation would be configured with the same default Custom Tags Path as configured on the originating system.

Expected Result:
The default Custom Tags Path on the installed system should default to the same location ([cfusion_root]/WEB-INF/cfusion/CustomTags)

Any Workarounds:
The default Custom Tags Path can be configured programatically in Application.cfc relative to the coldfusion application path.

This issue effects query objects in cfscript among others. When trying to create a query object, the following error message is thrown: Detail: If the component name is specified as a return type, it is possible that either a definition file for the component cannot be found or is not accessible. Message: The value returned from the init function is not of type com.adobe.coldfusion.query. Changing the default Custom Tags Path from the Coldfusion admin is not an option since the path will reset every time it is deployed.
