Thanks for pointing this out. In addition to the configuration edits to web.xml and IIS, you would also need to edit {CF-INSTALL_DIR}\config\wsconfig\{MAGIC-NUMBER}\ to include *.html. The docs are essentially out of date in the below areas. We will get this updated. But on the other hand, the method actually adds additional overhead on ColdFusion servers. An ideal deployment would off-load static files to the webserver. Do you see yourself using this configuration on production servers?

I appreciate the response. I previously attempted your proposed solution and a simple test page returns an Apache Tomcat HTTP Status 404 error. I don't foresee utilizing this configuration heavily. However, the ability to do so can prove to be valuable when dealing with legacy websites.
