invalid cfsqltypes are ignored
Example: cfsqltype="The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
But, more realistically (a simple typo gotcha) cfsqltype="cf_sql_intger"
Actual result: No exception
Expected result :An exception stating "cf_sql_intger" is invalid.



I am able to repro this issue on all versions of CF(10/11/2016). I am not sure whether we ignore it deliberately or its a bug.

Should error when an invalid type is used. Not that important on a string but does matter with things like CF_SQL_BIGINT etc. Please throw an error.

My opinion is that it should error on the wrong type. It also does not error when `string` is used instead of `cf_sql_varchar` in a query of queries. I don't know if that is by design or a bug again, but here is an example:

Should error.

This issue is fixed now. The fix for this issue will be available as part of next major release of ColdFusion. Behavior change: If the CFSQLType attribute's value is not the supported data type, then it will throw an exception with the following message: Invalid attribute value xyz for attribute CFSQLType. However, if the attribute is not specified at all, by default CF uses CF_SQL_CHAR as mentioned in the documentation.
