Build a CFC. Try to call method=X where X is *not* defined. In the past you got an error saying it wasn't a valid method. Now you get a NPE:

java.lang.NullPointerException
	at coldfusion.filter.ComponentFilter.normalizeParamTypeForAjax(ComponentFilter.java:297)
	at coldfusion.filter.ComponentFilter.invoke(ComponentFilter.java:249)
	at coldfusion.filter.ApplicationFilter.invoke(ApplicationFilter.java:487)
	at coldfusion.filter.RequestMonitorFilter.invoke(RequestMonitorFilter.java:42)

Conversely, if you call a public method, you get:

 The method 'nope1' in component /Users/raymondcamden/Dropbox/presentations/ColdFusion APIs/demos/demo1.cfc cannot be accessed remotely.

This is fixed in 2016. We need to see if/how this change can be back-ported to 11.0.
