Today I have installed the ColdFusion 2018 public beta and replaced the previous beta release with it. After installation the ColdBox 5 framework was broken, CF threw an error when trying to set a variable:

var appSettings = getApplicationMetadata();

For whatever reason dumping getApplicationMetadata() worked fine. However it only worked once - trying to dump it twice on the same page or assigning it to a variable resulted in an error.
Similar errors have been reported on the bug base (CF-4198394, CF-4198397) but are marked as fixed .

After verifying the bug I uninstalled the current public beta and replaced the installation with the previous version (from the closed beta) and it worked fine again. The current and previous beta release was reinstalled twice to verify that this bug only occurs with the latest beta (same code/same server configuration).

How to reproduce: Install a ColdBox 5 application on the current beta release server and it should break right away.



ColdBox 5 framework works with update1 over CF2018 beta release.    Closing the bug.
