Problem Description: when writing mappings to the object returned by getApplicationMetadata() 
I get the error under load of: java.util.ConcurrentModificationException at java.util.HashMap$HashIterator.nextNode( at java.util.HashMap$ at java.util.AbstractCollection.toArray( at coldfusion.util.CaseInsensitiveMap$FastHashKeyEnumerator.<init>( at coldfusion.util.CaseInsensitiveMap$KeySet.iterator( at coldfusion.runtime.TemplateProxyFactory.getFullName( at coldfusion.runtime.TemplateProxyFactory.resolveName( at coldfusion.runtime.TemplateProxyFactory.resolveName( at coldfusion.runtime.TemplateProxyFactory.resolveName( at coldfusion.cfc.ComponentProxyFactory.getProxy(
Steps to Reproduce:
code in question is: 
var appSettings = getApplicationMetadata();
appSettings.mappings[ 'mapping' ] = 'path';
Actual Result: error

Expected Result: no error

Any Workarounds:



The code in this ticket is part of the ColdBox framework, which runs on every request to set up dynamic mappings for installed modules. I'm very interested in getting this looked at. Seems like some sort of concurrency issue under the covers in ColdFusion.

I have been running into the same issues. Created a minimum working sample to prove that this function is not thread safe:

Was this fix only released in CF 2018 and not CF 2016 or CF 11?

The fix will be part of the upcoming updates for CF 2016 and CF 11.
