Components: Validation

Versions: 2016,2018

Failure Type: Crash

Found In Build/Fixed In Build: 2016,0,10,314028 / CF2016U12,CF2018U5

Problem Description:
When using Java11, URLs that exceed ~1560 characters cause ColdFusion to throw a show-stopping exception error and abort processing.

Steps to Reproduce:
Full sample source code available here:
Generate a long URL and attempt to validate it using isValid("url").

Actual Result:
Unhandled Exception

Expected Result:
A boolean true or false

Any Workarounds:
Don't use the built-in function.  Use your UDF.
function isURL(u){
	var response = true;
	var test = {};
	try {
		test = jURL.Init( javacast("string", arguments.u) );
	} catch(any e) {
		response = false;
	return response;



Update received via email on 5/23/2019 (since there's no accessible change log): Frequency updated from 'Some users will encounter' to 'Most users will encounter' Version updated to '13.0' QUESTION: What's version "13"? The webpage details section still indicates "Version: 2016". Is this an internal reference AND does it reference 2016 or 2018... or a future hotfix #?
