The following two code examples run as expected on Railo, but produce errors on 11.2

<cfscript>
 writeDump( { foo:'bar' }.append( { bum:'baz' } ) );
 writeDump( [ 'a', 'b' ].append( [ 'c', 'd' ], true ) );
</cfscript>

Member functions should work after object literals.

This is a valid ask, and we are considering this as a fix for future release. (Comment added from ex-user id:nawani)

If I ever end up switching to 11 this would be very useful.

As you can see, Railo/Lucee have supported this for ages so ColdFusion should too.

+1 * 1000000!!!! Even look at other built in member functions that chaining would make sense.. like query.addParam().addParam(), etc..

Still annoying 5 years later. Lucee supports this, come on Adobe. Let's enter 2019 please.

Hi Brad, +1 - and it says I already voted. Chaining is nice until it runs into CF's rough enforcement of some under-the-hood Java data type that Adobe controls and sometimes changes between versions, instead of chaining just being type-casting and smooth. Thanks!, -Aaron
