We just recently installed Coldfusion 11 enterprise. The code for generating pdf files worked before but did not work on the Coldfusion 11 enterprise platform. The code is like this:
<cfcontent type="application/pdf" />
<cfheader name="Content-disposition" value="attachment;filename=Report.pdf">
I got the following error:
coldfusion.document.DocumentProcessor$TimeOutException at coldfusion.document.DocumentProcessor.processContent(DocumentProcessor.java:277)
I also tried to use the new tag <cfhtmltopdf>, like this:
This is a test.
The server/page was just hanging there.
Any insights are greatly appreciated.
There might be a problem during the inclusion of facultyReports.cfm, as the error message indicates. As a test, store the following file, containing one line of text, in the current directory
Content of test file
Then replace <cfinclude template="facultyReports.cfm"> with <cfinclude template="pdfIncludeTest.cfm">
Did you every find anything? I have a brand new CF11 install, fully patched and out of the box i can't generate PDFS using simple test case:
<cfdocument format="PDF">this is a test</cfdocument>
It just hangs until timeout, nothing in any logs.
Also (i think its related) i can't add fonts through the CF Administrator, just hangs as well.
