It seems that CF10, there has been a loss of the ability to run via an external web server (IIS, Apache, etc.) JSPs alongside CFM pages, if located in the that web server's site root or subfolders.

Some will note that JSPs CAN be executed if placed in the cfusion/wwwroot, and that is true. But those wanting to keep JSPs where their CFMs are located should not have to resort to such trickery.

This was identified in the CF10 release notes,, as a then-known issue, tracked as:

3042725 - JSP files will not be served if they are present in the webroot of web server. They need to be placed in webroot of ColdFusion server.

I could not find that id or issue in the new bug tracker, so I am opening this new case.



We checked the feasibility of this and it is not possible for the simple reason that JSP files need to be served by Tomcat. It worked in version 9.0 and earlier since CF back then was powered by JRun engine and we had tweaked few things to get it to work.
